Some days you just need to cozy up with some loose-fitting jeans and a cozy knit sweater. This may seem like a recipe for a frumpy disaster, but I have three tips for you to avoid this so-called frumpitis (and still stay uber-comfortable).
Stripes. Stripes are a classy and effortless print that add a bit of style to even the frumpiest of outfits.
Cute Shoes. Whether it's a strappy sandal or a fun ballet flat, dress up your cozy ensemble with a more feminine shoe. You may know this already, but shoes can be the difference between hip or miss in just about any outfit.
Scarf. I'm not sure if you've noticed yet, but scarves are kind of my secret weapon. When I can't seem to get that special something with an outfit, I usually add a scarf and it does the trick. I kept it simple here with black, but don't be afraid to have fun with colors and patterns. Besides, what's more cozy than a scarf? Double bonus!
