The Look: Smokey Eyes and Sweaters

 

Hi everyone,

My absolute favorite look for cold weather is to pair a warm sweater with smokey eyes. Go against the grain by combining the ultra-feminine and the casual. I love that you can look sexy but feel so comfortable at the same time!

There are so many different ways to rock this look. I personally love wearing a big, soft, light-colored sweater with a dark, dramatic smoky eye–the juxtaposition is so fun! If you like a softer smoky eye, try wearing it with a black, navy, or chocolate brown sweater. Classic sweaters like cable-knits or Fair Isles look great with the glamorous eye makeup. It adds a fun and strong dose of mod to the preppy look! Pair a sweater with smokey eyes for a date, dinner friends, or just to go get coffee! Depending on how dramatic you go with the smokey eye, you can determine whether the look is more appropriate for the day or night.
