The Vintage Sweater: Part II

I absolutely love this Ralph Lauren American flag sweater. I last styled it here and here where I discussed how it can easily be worn across all four seasons. As I mentioned in those posts, the lightweight cotton makes this sweater that perfect layering piece so I couldn't wait to pair it with an oxford and shorts last week. 

To make this sweater spring appropriate I paired it with other cotton separates that are in heavy rotation in my closet. For a shirt, I wore my go-to striped cotton oxford and white cotton shorts in the perfect length for spring and summer. For an added layer of warmth and to pull out the cognac colors in the bag and loafers, I topped the look with my herringbone blazer in a similar hue. I've mentioned this before, but one of the many benefits of having a streamlined wardrobe is how easy it is to pull together comfortable and stylish looks that I know I can wear all day. I think that this final look is a great example of all these points wrapped into a single look that I'm sure I will wear for years to come.

Until next time!
