Layering a sweater over a classic button up has always been a wardrobe staple for me. This is a combo I'll often wear with slacks, a pencil skirt, or skinny jeans and flats as shown above.
However, sometimes this combo can feel a little stale, or a bit too "preppy." This season I've seen a lot of "graphic" sweaters, and I don't know about you, but I couldn't justify paying almost $400 for the J. Crew version shown above and I wanted to find a reasonably priced version (since I don't think this trend will be around for long).
I've put together two similar outfits above, down to the smallest details. I own several of these H&M button-up shirts and they fit amazingly well! In addition, if you've never tried a paid of the Forever 21 skinny jeans I highly encourage you to try a pair the next time you're there. Seriously, they're only $10.80 and fit, look, and feel just like some of the more expensive brands I've owned.
