How to Dress Up Basic Jeans and a Sweater

Baggy sweaters and skinny jeans are my go-to fall and winter uniform. They’re not only super easy to throw together, but they’re warm, feel extra comfy, and you can spruce them up in a million different ways. With that said, this basic combo can start to feel a bit boring. One of the ways I switch it up for everyday is by adding a pair of over the knee boots and a statement bag. I love how over the knee boots add an instant cool factor to any outfit and changes up the look completely.

One of the top requests we’ve been getting on the blog is to share more affordable styles and dupes for our favorite pieces. And actually, Vince Camuto is one of the more affordable brands we love for shoes and edgy bags. My latest purchase are these over the knee boots. They fit like a glove and are under $200 (super reasonable for a pair of otk boots!). I love how the shaft is a bit more roomy, which is great if you want to pair them with jeans because they won’t feel too snug unlike other styles out there. But they’re also still slimming enough to balance out a baggy sweater on top. If you have wider calves, you’ll definitely love this pair!

Another trend we’ve been obsessing over all season long is croc-embossed textures. This bag feels perfectly fresh for the holiday season with the saddle silhouette and fringe tassel on the side. It’s the perfect size for every day – not too big or too small – and super easy to get in and out of, thanks to the magnetic closure. I just love the edgy touch it adds to the most casual looks.

If you guys are on the hunt for great boots and bags that won’t break the bank this season, def head to Vince Camuto. I linked more of my fav pieces below.
