Sweater Styling Tips to Look Your Chic-est This Season

The awesome plus of sweater dressing is that you can “dress up” or “dress down” depending on what you layer the sweater over and what accessories you add on. Here are some tips for doing just that!

  • Keep your body type in mind when choosing a sweater to buy. Luckily, many of today’s styles are unstructured and loosely draped, so they suit all builds—and are super comfy to wear and easy to pair with different outfits.
  • Also consider your height. Sweaters that reach down to knee or even shin length may overwhelm a petite frame. So stick to hip or thigh-length styles if you’re below medium height.
  • For autumn, choose sweaters with more lightweight fabrics like cashmere to allow you to still have a slimmer silhouette while keeping warm. Reserve the bulky knit sweaters for winter.
  • The open front type of sweater looks great worn over a blouse and slacks at the office, or over a dress for a slightly more formal occasion, a lunch date, or a work meet-up.
  • The pull-over type, whether slim-fit or over-sized, looks cool with jeans, leggings, or a skirt—creating a youthful, hip vibe.
  • Add a neck accessory to give your look some added pizzazz! Anything from a silk scarf with a striking design for a hint of elegance, to a bulky knit muffler with fringed ends for a casual effect. A necklace—from a chunky bead choker to a dainty string of pearls—will also set the look of your outfit.

Finally, complete your sweater ensemble depending on where you’re going, what you’ll be doing, and how dressed-up or dressed-down you want to look!

For footwear, will it be rubber shoes, loafers, pumps, or high-heeled boots?

On your head, a baseball cap, a knit bonnet or beanie, or a jaunty fedora?

And to carry your essentials, will it be a backpack, a roomy, oversized tote, or a slim, stylish clutch?
