Sweaters probably aren't at the top of your list when putting together "dressy" or "going out" outfits. But when you stumble upon a style that A) has unique details and B) can be paired with trendy extras like leopard-print pants, white booties, and a cool clutch, well, that's pretty much reason for a cool sweater outfit (yes, it's a thing). Even better is when you find a stand-out sweater on the cheap to the tune of $50, right? Enter: the POPSUGAR Pointelle Sweater ($50).

In an icy-blue hue (which is a major trend for Fall and Winter), this open-weave knit is a favorite around the POPSUGAR office's — our fashion team has been wearing both the blue and pale pink version on repeat, layering theirs over dresses, styling with midi skirts, and, of course, pairing with jeans. But that's not all. Our Fashion Editor Sarah Wasilak recently put a cool girl spin on the pastel sweater, teaming hers with a pair of leopard-print pants and finishing with optic white booties and an oversize clutch.

For a night out with friends, whether it's drinks, dinner, or a holiday party, this outfit is the epitome of low-key chic. It has that just-dressed-up-enough vibe to it without being all glitter, rhinestones, and sequins galore. Though, if you're in the mood for added sparkle, a glitzy earring or bedecked necklace will feel perfectly festive (check out our edit of under-$50 jewelry finds here).

Ahead, check out Sarah's cool-girl sweater outfit and shop all the pieces you need to re-create it on your own (I've included her exact items plus some affordable alternatives!). Then, be sure to check back as we continue to bring you more easy Fall outfit formulas, from leopard-print coat outfits to polished Fall work looks and fashion influencer-inspired outfits that center on boots.
