Here's one sweater you won't want to cover with a chunky blanket scarf. It's the lace-up sweater, and it's a new must-have for fall 2016. My favorite ones feature chunky knit styling with gromet lacing. #obsessed Paired with a simple velvet choker, you'll have the most winning combination ever. I've been looking high and low for a budget version in stores but to no avail, however, I did find one online at Missguided.com under $50 (also comes in this gorgeous dusty blush hue). I think it's fascinating how designers can tweak one tiny detail on a staple such as the sweater and make it instantly fresh and covetable. Have you picked up on the lace-up sweater trend yet?
