Hello I'm image consultant Susan Bigsby at In this clip I'm going to show you how to wear a wrap sweater. What is a wrap sweater? Well it's actually a sweater with sleeves that has this long front. Almost like a sweater and a pashmina or a sweater and a shawl in one piece. So you can either, I love this look with jeans, either white jeans or dark jeans, whatever kind of jeans you want to wear. It's pretty with dress pants, too. I like it best with pants because of the overall long line. Now, you can let it drape, you can gather it up and tie the long front pieces and just flip it over. And I actually like this look probably a little bit better because it shows the waist a little bit more. It shows a little bit more of the figure. It looks more pulled together. It's not quite as sloppy and quite as casual. You have different preferences and different ways of wearing things for different reasons and different events. But this is a really nice look. And it's totally relaxed and soft and a little bit more updated. Now another thing you can do if you're wearing maybe a little dressier look is you can wrap it around you. And Angelia I'm going to have you turn around and then you will tie it. And tie it behind yourself. One note that I want you all to be aware of, when you see these little tags hanging on your scarves or your sweaters and they're going to be exposed, take a very sharp, small pair of scissors and clip those off. That's not really attractive. It's nice to know who the designer is but this is about the manufacturers information and you don't need it. So turn around, and look how gorgeous and flattering this looks. And it really showcases your necklaces and your jewelry if you like to accessorize a little bit better like that. One more way you can do this, and this is even dressier, is to take one of the sides and just throw it up over your shoulder. Kind of fix the neckline a little bit and it's a very elegant look. And then one side just drapes down and looks very flattering and very pretty. And that's a very, very chic look. This is pretty over all black. It's extremely elegant. This has been Susan Bigsby, thanks for watching.
