Three Ways to Wear a Rust Colored Sweater

Today I’m remixing one of my faaaavorite sweaters right now.  During the NSale back in July (and last year too), I shared about the SUPER SOFT Dreamers sweater that I said was probably the most underrated item of the whole sale.  I have fallen in love with this brand, and I was sooo excited when I discovered that they have some items available on Amazon for way cheaper under a different brand name!

I don’t know why the seller name is different, but I bought two of these from Amazon and the label on both says Dreamers.  However, another PMTer bought these recently and said her label was different.  Regardless, it definitely feels like the same amazingly soft Dreamers sweaters from Nordstrom.

I own 5 loosely fitted tunic sweaters by Dreamers–3 from Nordstrom and 2 from Amazon–in several different cuts/variations.  This one has a raw hem neckline, is hi-low, and has slits on the side.  It’s probably my favorite of the three cuts I own!  It comes in 6 colors which can be seen HEREI wear size Small/Medium and own it in the Mustard (featured today) and Coral–so pretty!  I’ve seen them sold out and totally restocked with new colors 2-3 times over the last few months, so if your size/color isn’t available, keep checking.

Note: These get “fuzzy” when you wash them.  Not talking about pilling, but just appear a little fuzzy when you look closely, and different colors get fuzzier than others.  Most of these super soft kinds of things do.  It doesn’t bother me much as it’s usually only noticeable upon close inspection.  You can also try a sweater shaver on it.

Outfits With a Rust Colored Sweater

I’m remixing this color because it’s popular this season!  If this specific sweater doesn’t work for you, you should be able to find a sweater in a similar color in a cut or fit that works better for you.  Now, onto the outfits!

Jeans + Booties + White Accessories + (Printed Scarf)
I love how this color looks against dark denim!  To make the outfit really pop, I went for white accessories as opposed to gold or bronze since those blend in more.

White Skinnies + Brown Sweater + Patterned flats + Gold pendant White Skinnies + Brown Sweater + Gray Bag + Patterned Flats + Accessories Patterned Flats + White jeans + Brown sweater + Gold Pendant + White Earrings

White Jeans + Printed Flats
I have always loved this caramel or rusty brown col with cognac with white, and this outfit reaffirms that love!  SO cute with white jeans!  I added plaid flats to elevate the outfit with a little print.  Leopard flats would work too, but I like how the addition of grey tones in the plaid flats “lift” the outfit.  A taupe bootie would work too!

Shop the Outfit:
Sweater: Amazon  (exact-wearing size Small/Medium)
Jeans: Loft (exact-wearing size 28P for length) (similar)

Leggings + Nikes + Brown Sweater + Gray Bag Brown Dreamers Sweater + Gray Crossbody Bag + White Earrings + Zella Leggings

Leggings + Sneakers
Lastly, an athleisure look!  These sweaters are tunic length, with the front measuring 27″ and back 29.5″, which is long enough for leggings for me!  I always wear thick, opaque leggings (the best!), but I still like to wear them with tops that are long enough.  These relaxed sweaters are perfect.

Then I added my go-to craaazy comfy black sneakers (memory foam footbed!) and the white earrings again just for added style!

Shop the Outfit:
Sweater: Amazon  (exact -wearing size Small/Medium)
Leggings: Nordstrom (exact-wearing size M)
Shoes: Zappos (exact -wearing size 9, exact)
Bag: Nordstrom (similar)
Earrings: c/o Nickel & Suede (exact -wearing size M)

There you go!  All of these looks would work with the coral version of this sweater too, or really any of the colors.  Comes in mustard, coral, olive, mocha, grey, and a happy yellow.  Check them out HERE!
