Dress It Up Nicely
The easiest way to dress up your simple sweater is to pair it with dressy, fashionable staple, including tailored trousers and skirts. Generally, in order for a sweater to look its best, it must be worn and paired properly. Accessorize the look with a sleek clutch (or handbag) and pumps or structures booties to make it polished. You may also combine between bright colors and prints or pick the pairing with different texture such as leather or chiffon for showing dimensions to your knit sweater.
Wear Layers Like a Pro
Not only it provides warmth and comfort, layering also offers a super stylish way to wear a cable knit sweater. Abuse some class into the imagery of your sweater by tucking a longer collared shirt or contrasting top underneath – you may find collars with prints, studs, or unique shape to increase the cuteness. Then, rock the layers even more with a wrap coat or woolen blazer over your sweater-and-shirt outfit for a cozy vibe. Finish the look with classic and comfortable accessories, and try to match accordingly between colors, textures, and prints for the perfect elegance.
Belting It with Style
Another best way to style a knit sweater is by giving it shape. Since most sweaters do not have any definition, accenting the garment with a belt can make or break the look. So, create curve and shave off some of the bulk of the sweater by cinching it around the waist. You may also double up on dimensions by pairing a chic vest over the sweater then belt it all together for a perfect cohesive look. There is no limit to the kind of belts that go with your sweater, leather, cloth, braided, buckled, bedazzled, etc. For a classic look, opt for a nice skinny belt with a trendy look that makes a statement and matches the color scheme. Remember to have fun and be creative.
Dare to Wear The Fuzzy Sweater
Nothing is more impressive than wearing a cozy, sweet looking, fuzzy sweater during the chilly days. It’s warm, fun, yet quiet fashion-forward sweater. The only consideration for pulling off this cute staple is by choosing the one with the right fit – not too loose not to tight. If you’re going for the “oversized” look, make sure they at least half-way if not all-the-way cover your bum. To dress up a sweater, add a heel, and pair it with anything chic, especially cropped pants, slouchy trousers, full or mini skirt. Not to forget, adding the perfect floppy hat always dresses up a look
Dress It Down with Denim Staple
Throwing a combo with denim staple is always the best way to send off that stylish casual vibe, and this includes a pair of great chunky sweater with any denim staples you own. From distressed denim, to dungarees, to denim skirts, to the classic boyfriend jeans, they are your best options for an easygoing and subtle weekend look. If you’re feeling like making a statement, pair with some killer heels, neon colors, or a festive handbag. Just make sure to remember proportions and balances for a great casual, relaxed yet stunning look.
Play It Fun with Textures
Comfy sweaters with fun patterns can always make you stand out from everyone else. But, how about styling your plain colored sweater? How can you make a simple one looks its best? Mixing two unlikely textures with one look is an easy way to quickly transform a plain sweater into something fabulous. Sweaters can have woven textures and embellishments, such as scalloping. Their styles can also be tightly woven or have a more open structure, such as the crochet style. So, mix and match your sweater texture with other texture such as leather, sequined, lace, or metallic. You can also upgrade your pairing with sparkle and fancy detailing. The best part of this look is that you can take it from the office to happy hour
Rock It Great with Prints
Not only plain sweater does looks fabulous with different textures, mixing-and-matching a plain sweater with prints can also be dazzling for your fun chilly days. Whether it’s floral, paisley, stripe, tribal, or any other busy, vibrant prints, this trick is surely a fabulous way to create more variety in your outfits, giving your look an interesting depth which is definitely a must if you want to take a more individualistic and personal approach to dressing. For a streamlined look, carry the same color accent from your sweater to your bottom.
Be Instantly Chic in Monochromatic
Crazy prints and funky patters step aside, it’s time for monochromatic style, for muted colors, for pastels and dainty hues to rule this fun and colorful chilly seasons. This great monochromatic combo is always a winning look. Besides, it also carries a bit more class and sophistication to the whole appearance, especially if you choose for that tailored and structured combo. Just pick one of your favorite knit sweater, and match it with other fashion staple in similar color family – or as long as they both find commonality in the same color family. If you are still not sure, keep one of them subdued or bolder for less of an impact.
Go For Winter Whites
Want to style your simple sweater into something effortlessly chic? While everyone else resorts to black, why not go polar opposite and do the winter whites? Pair your sweater with whites, whether it goes for skirt, pants, or coat. Select rich fabrics with texture to make the combo looks even more fabulous. Dress it up with flirty heels. Or, if you have a nice and crisp white sweater, opt for all-white fashion trend. There’s no secret trick to wearing all-white outfit – everyone can pull it off and look absolutely gorgeous.
