Pops of Pink

Infusing fun into a casual sweater ensemble

The Outfit

Turtlenecks, cable knits and crewnecks galore–it’s time to break out that reliable sweater that’s been eyeing you since the last snowfall. Each autumn I giddily await the opportunity to wear my collection of soft, cozy and effortless pullovers. 

While running errands, I threw together this casual fit: A hot-pink sweater with cropped black jeans, pointed-toe white loafers and vintage hand-me-down Coach crossbody. 

The Thinking

As mentioned, I like to incorporate my own spin on what’s on-trend due to my nature of leaning into classic styles. The neon-hue fad is one that I’ve had somewhat of a difficult time hopping onboard, but have found a few clever ways to partake. 

One of them is this Pepto-pink knit, which provides a shape I’m confident I will feel comfortable wearing (the sweater silhouette) while debuting something I’m unfamiliar with (the color). Paired with standard black jeans and a sophisticated shoe, it provides all of the key factors I’m looking for in an easygoing outfit: playfulness, class and comfort.

About This Blog

Our Staff Writer, Devon Miner, puts us all to sartorial shame on a daily basis. As a result: we’ve asked her to write a blog about her personal style and how she puts her fabulous self together.—Kate Meyers

Devon's Story:
Seventeen magazine served as the dominant design theme in my Highlands Ranch bedroom. My collection of torn out pages became a personal style bible for daily accessorizing. I was ten at the time. Since then I’ve been a student of fashion– no Crocs or sweatpants for me. At 15, I attended the Yves Saint Laurent exhibit at the Denver Art Museum. That visit captured my heart and my imagination. It also sealed the deal for a lifetime of observation and appreciation for what works and why. I’m embarrassed but also secretly proud to say I was voted “Most Fashionable” at Mountain Vista High School. The beat goes on. These days, I’m an unapologetic collector of patterned pants, graphic band tees and oversized buttoned-down blouses. Look to this blog for a weekly outfit and analysis as well as a smattering of fashion news from Colorado and beyond.
