Wow, 20 dupes! I wore this a week ago Sunday, to a family party where we celebrated 4 birthdays (all 4 on the same day too, how cool is that?). It was a perfect outfit for the day, because the weather was beautiful, and I got a ton of complements (as well as a few pets, haha).
I pinned this look, originally from Atlantic-Pacific, because I knew I loved it and knew I’d be able to dupe it. I’ve had these grey sweater tights for ages, but never thought to put them under shorts. It was perfect! I went with my boyfriend shorts from H&M, with a loose gauzy shirt from Discovery, along with my reversable faux fur vest that I snagged last year at Ross. The scarf is from Forever21, and my clog boots I got at Bakers. I piled on various bangles, along with my Fossil watch and an estate sale ring in addition to my wedding set. I also pinned a pegasus pin to the side of the vest, but didn’t quite get it in any of my pics. I quite like it on the vest though, so you may be seeing it again soon. I only regret not having time to go to a parking garage to snap pics… there’s totally one I could have done this in. Oh well.
Not only was this a successful dupe, but I loved the outfit as well. While the shorts aren’t work-friendly (again, taking advantage of the weekend), I can easily swap a skirt for the shorts and make this a work-friendly outfit. In fact, I think it might be fun with a bright skirt, or even a sequin skirt. You’ll be seeing variations of this as long as fall stays fall.
What are your thoughts? Was this a good dupe? Would you wear sweater tights under jean shorts?
