It’s true that embellishment is in, on everything from shoes and handbags to tops, blazers, sweaters, and bottoms. It’s your call if you’re going to go modest with the trend, or overboard in bedazzlement, but we think this Beaded Shoulder Sweater, $29.80 is really quite perfect for a series of occasions that border on semi-dressy. With a bit of beaded detail, this piece can easily go office to night out with the girls and make a fashion statement without veering too far into the trendy category. What should you pair with this? Skip the necklace, unless it’s a delicate single chain with a simple pendant. Skinny black pants, an electric pink skirt, or black jeans can add just the right tough of panache- you can also adorn the look with layered bangles, suede booties, or flat over-the-knee boots.
