I always refer to this sweater as the "Cookie Monster Cardigan." Though it's teal rather than royal, the fuzzy trim reminds me of the iconic blue Sesame Street character. I bought it primarily because it matched my teal suede boots (which I love, love, love) and I've historically styled it with the boots and black pants. But, when I came across this gorgeous teal and chocolate printed grosgrain ribbon at Hobby Lobby, I was inspired to pair the sweater with dark brown pants and a coordinating turtleneck. I used the ribbon (and a clip on chocolate brown wool flower) to dress up the teal wool cloche I found on clearance for nine dollars at Gordmans and, viola, a new look for the Cookie Monster.
What other colors would you pair with teal?
