Throwback Thursday: Kristin Cavallari's Cable Knit Sweater and Black Leggings Look for Less

Kristen Cavallari Look for Less
When looking for the most bang for your buck, timeless closet staples are truly the best investment. Kristin Cavallari's look from 2011 is just as in style today as it was then, proving that basic pieces can transcend fads or trendy pieces. Kristin styles her cable-knit sweater with black leggings, tall buckled riding boots and a chic leather handbag. Reimagined I've stuck with her classic look, but added updates like the trapeze structure in the handbag and an option to add a little edge with a lace-up option. Whether you opt for the classic look or update it, you'll be looking chic and staying comfortable this season! Get the look below, and make sure to check out my latest find from H&M, "treggings." The jegging-alternative offers a thicker, sturdier, stretchable fabric that makes it 100% acceptable to sport the tight-fitting legwear as pants.
