The Best-Selling Sweater You’ll Want for Fall

There’s a reason this sweater is a best-seller!

It’s incredibly-soft fabric and unique cross-back design make it equal parts comfortable and cool. It comes in five fall-friendly colors and is so cozy that you’ll want to wear it around the clock (I already am!).

Slouchy sweaters like this one don’t have to mean dressed-down. You can pair them with heels as easily as you can rubber boots. I talk about it a lot here on Wellesley & King: the best outfits are a juxtaposition of styles. Feminine and edgy, casual and dressy. Play around with your wardrobe and see what surprising combinations you can create.

In today’s post, I’m styling this Madewell cross-back sweater and the perfect distressed jeans (and they come in petite) together with these old favorite Banana Republic heels (side note: that place is a treasure trove for shoes). You last saw these jeans here; I’m a big fan of the light 90s-reminiscent wash. I love pairing them with overly feminine tops and details. Unfortunately, my shoes are from last summer, but I think this pair is a great current alternative.

I layered on my go-to jewelry pieces (simple rings, a boyfriend watch, and a dainty necklace) before calling the look complete. If you see me around Pittsburgh this fall, the odds that I’ll be wearing exactly this are pret-ty high!

What looks are you repeating this fall?
