Alessandra Ambrosio Wore The $88 Piece Your Closet Needs
It's true: Alessandra Ambrosio is the unofficial queen of scoring the coziest, most affordable pieces on the market. Remember the wrap-front cardigan she wore last Dec. that instantly took her workout getup to new heights? It was a cool $68, though it could have easily cost triple that. Now, the model is back at it again with yet another wallet-friendly find that looks anything but. Yep, Alessandra Ambrosio's knit sweater is the cute seasonal staple your closet needs — and it certainly won't burn a hole in your bank account, either.
On Sat., Ambrosio was photographed en route to lunch at L.A. restaurant, Hillstone, with her boyfriend Nicolo Oddi. The couple were all smiles as they enjoyed a sunny but decidedly chilly West Coast day in coordinating Western-leaning outfits. Oddi sported a casual white sweater, dark-wash jeans, and a tribal-print cardigan.
Ambrosio tapped into the Western trend, too, with a brown leather moto jacket, which she casually threw over her shoulders, flare pants (complete with a front-slit that felt inherently '90s), and a cozy knit sweater by New York-based brand Heartloom — an Ambrosio favorite that also counts the likes of Gisele Bündchen, Hilary Duff, and Julianne Hough as fans.
Ambrosio's covetable sweater features confetti-like threads and colors — eye-catching design elements that make her knit particularly appealing (not to mention fun). What's more, it also has a relaxed fit (perfect for pairing with everything from jeans to leather mini skirts), a mock collar, and intricate pointelle stitch detailing.
The model rounded out her off-duty ensemble with a fringe-embellished Saint Laurent bucket bag, a cute silk hair accessory, and a pair of round Garrett Leight sunnies.
Although you might have already started your seasonal wardrobe switch, it's still wise to keep a handful of warmer staples like Ambrosio's sweater on hand, seeing as spring temperatures can be quite unpredictable at times.
