When it comes to wearing sweaters, part of the fun is looking forward to all the outfits you get to create. They are so remarkably versatile and work in virtually all settings: your home, the office, a date night, a lunch with girlfriends, or a Saturday afternoon outing with family. Perhaps your go-to has always been a pair of leggings or jeans and a sweater on top. There’s nothing wrong with that combination! But if you are looking for new ways to create cute outfits with your sweaters, look no further. In this post, we will take a look at some of the best pieces to wear with your sweaters.
One of the many wonderful things about fashion is that it is ever-evolving. Sure, certain timeless staples will never go out of style (and we love that), but there are also plenty of new trends to look forward to. So why not step outside your comfort zone and piece together an outfit you have never tried before? One example of something fun and cute would be a sweater layered underneath overalls. This creates a chic, quaint, country outfit that is just made for the fall season. Opt for classic blue overalls and pair them with the sweater style of your choice. It could be something in a bright solid color or a patterned style like stripes, polka dots, or animal prints.
There are plenty of ways to accessorize a classic sweater weather outfit. Something that is very much on trend this season is looping a belt around an oversized sweater. Of course, an oversized sweater can be worn all on its own, but if you want to sharpen up the look and add a little flair, fashion a belt around your torso. By doing this, you are creating an hourglass figure and adding more dimension to the outfit. For the bottoms, if you prefer a natural shape, opt for skinny jeans. To create a more curvy appearance, pair the sweater and belt combo with bootcut jeans.
Nothing beats a sweater-and-jeans combination for that quintessentially cozy fall look. But to master styling a fabulous outfit with these two pieces, it helps to know the various sweater-and-jeans styles that look the best with each other. If you are going with a bigger sweater on top, such as a tunic sweater or an oversized chunky knit sweater, keep the bottoms form-fitting. A tunic sweater looks great with a pair of leggings or white skinny jeans. If your sweater is more fitted, like a body-hugging turtleneck, try pairing it with wide-leg trousers, straight-leg pants, or high-waisted pants.
There is something truly timeless about the sweater-and-skirt combination. It’s simple, yet elegant; the kind of thing you might see a glamorous Old Hollywood actress wearing. Try pairing a pleated midi skirt with a gorgeous cashmere sweater. To make the look even more effortlessly sophisticated, stick to the same color (like a soft pink cashmere sweater with a slightly darker pink pleated midi skirt). Or you could mix and match contrasting, yet neutral colors (like a white cashmere sweater with a black pleated midi skirt). For footwear, options such as flat strappy sandals, classic pumps, and ballet flats all look marvelous.
Midi skirts aren’t the only skirt style you have to work with when it comes to the sweater-and-skirt combination. A sweater with a leather midi skirt creates a great outfit for those days when you need something that looks appropriate for both daytime and evening wear.
Sweater dresses are excellent outfit choices, especially on cold winter days when you want to look stylish but prioritize warmth and comfort too. A sweater dress can be paired with a handful of accessories and proper footwear. If you want to create a casual look, try a long, ribbed sweater dress in a solid color, and finish the look with white sneakers. If you need something appropriate for the office, pair a sweater dress of any color or style with classic pumps. When it comes to accessorizing a sweater dress, you can choose things like a cute tote purse, a wristwatch or, a women’s scarves. Sweater dresses can also look quite elegant when you wear them with a wide floppy hat and a pair of dark sunglasses.
