Layered Ruffle Sleeve Sweater

Hi everyone!  First off, my apologies for not getting this blog post up yesterday.  I had some technical difficulties, but am back in business today!  If you have been following along on my Instagram, you'll know that I am in LOVE with sweaters that have a fun sleeve - bell sleeve, ruffle sleeve, puffy sleeve - you name it!  I think they add some feminine fun and can make a simple item look so chic.  

When I saw this plum colored ruffle sleeve sweater, I knew I had to have it.  The layered ruffle sleeves are bold yet aren't too long!  And the length is nice, as it comes to your hips and is perfect when you want to wear a sweater but not a long cardigan.  The sweater is also a good weight - it keeps you warm but is not too bulky.

Now...what to pair with it??  Because the sleeves are so bold, I think it looks best with a simple cami or tee underneath.  I paired my sweater with jeans, but it would also look good with grey pants or even white jeans.  I added a gold necklace and statement earrings.  The earrings are far enough from the bold sleeves that they don't overpower each other.    

I finished off the outfit with some leopard slides, because - well, leopard - enough said!  You could also wear some booties, over the knee boots, or even heels for a dressier look.  I chose a neutral color bag since I had a bold sweater and leopard print already included in my outfit.  

If you buy anything from this post, I would love to hear about it.  And if there are any particular items you want to hear about on here, please let me know!  Thanks so much for reading Smart Southern Style!
