Styling a Vintage Sweater From Dad’s Closet

Happy Sunday! I found this tan sweater in my dad’s collection when my parents visited me in December and fell in love with the color – so obviously I stole it from him 😛 jk, he wanted me to have it since I loved it so much. I asked him why on earth he had such a cozy sweater since it never gets very cold back home in Bangalore and apparently he’d bought it when he visited the US around 20 years ago for work! Here’s a photo I have of him from 1997 🙂 that explains why I call it “vintage” haha!

I love pieces of clothing that have meaning behind them – something that is rare when you are a fashion blogger and shop at retail stores so often. I decided to style my dad’s sweater with a lace collared shirt underneath from Banana Republic. I feel like the little bit of lace peeking through adds a feminine element to this look with my black ripped jeans, boots and my baker boy hat. I completed the outfit with my go-to round sunglasses and AllSaints Ikuya crossbody purse.

  1. Hi there! What’s the emblem on the sweater? I do love your blogs and remember when you interview with me and said your interests were “fashion”! I agree!

    1. Hi Pam! Thanks for reading my blog! It’s so cool to hear that I said that back in 2015 and you remember!
      I think the brand on the emblem is Monte Carlo – not something I’m familiar with.
