A classic sweater – we all have one. Whether we reach for it when we’re running out the door or living in it when the cold front comes, it fills our hearts (and bodies) with nothing but that cozy feeling. While the familiarity of this sweater is enough for us to keep throwing it over our black leggings (no shame), it’s also the reason for why we can’t seem to break this habit.
With a busy schedule and a length of a to-do list that proves it, your sweater is an easy option that you know will never disappoint you. To change up your appearance this season (without changing out your sweater), here are 7 ways to elevate your sweater to look chic and stay comfortable this season.
1. With a pencil skirt
From going to the office to attending a dinner with friends, this outfit is sophisticated and has a touch of elegance that makes it irreplaceable. Grab the pencil skirt of your choice and remember to tuck in the front of your sweater to emphasize on proportion. Dress this outfit up with a pair of strappy heels (or keep it casual with loafers) and enjoy making this day yours.
2. With a floppy hat
Sometimes it’s the details that make an outfit and a floppy hat is just the one you’re looking for. Fun and feminine, a fall hat helps you stay toasty and only worry about the bottom portion of your hair (what can we say, hat hair is a real concept). Choose a neutral colored hat as an addition to this outfit or a bold colored one to make it the entire statement.
3. With a cozy scarf
Transition your look this fall with another reason (or excuse) to bring out your favorite scarf. While this might be the 2nd time you’re wearing your sweater this week (it happens), a comfy scarf will do the trick in hiding the fact. Throw on your go-to sunglasses, a pair of skinny jeans, and spend your day in a versatile ensemble that won’t have you wondering if you need an outfit change halfway though it.
4. With the same color bottoms
There’s no need to worry if your top and bottoms go well together when they’re literally the same color. As a life hack and a time saver, create a monochromatic ensemble to turn the simple concept of a solid colored outfit into a completely trendy one. To accent this look, accessorize with a purse and play with different textures to find your perfect combination of flexible yet flattering.
5. With a layer on top
Another option for the sophisticated girl, layering your sweater will enhance your outfit and officially place you in respected fashion category that your favorite blogger is in. Best worn in neutral colors, pair with heels, wear some lipstick, and let this ensemble do the rest.
