Don’t you just adore sweaters around this time of the year? You can always rely on a good old (or new) sweater to keep you warm, fuzzy and stylish whether at work, a cocktail hour or a Sunday brunch. You can layer on top or underneath sweaters and pair them with pants, skirts or dresses. The possibilities are infinite without having to compromise comfort or your personal style.
You can wear your favorite staple over your sleeveless dress during the winter months. You get to show off your favorite sweater and also get the most wear out of your summer / spring piece. Sounds like a win-win to me!
If you’re feeling like that knitted top is a little too blend, pair it with another fabric! Adding some faux leather or feather to the look, changes up the game and creates an outfit that you’ll remember.
Play with different sweater designs! If you choose a unique design or a piece that’s bejeweled or simply spectacular, keep your bottom very simple or opt for something with a similar color tone so your top can shine. I love this cape style knit top!
Grab that fluffy sweater of yours and pair it with a full midi skirt for some ladylike flare.
Change up the mood by pairing the same sweater with skinny jeans for a casual weekend…
…and don’t forget to get goofy in front of some cheese. It’s always fun to ask your dear friend to run across the street, stop traffic on a 4-lane road and snap the perfect shot in 2.5 seconds. We are a committed team.
Keep it super simple and ultra chic with a pair of well fitted skinny jeans, a chunky knit sweater and a moto jacket. …and don’t forget the heels. They add so much to the full look.
Get dolled up and bring your “glam game” in a unique knit top when heading to a date or a cocktail party with your mister. This hand made knit top is so unique and spectacular.
Play with the volumes by pairing your super fitted knit top with a full a-line midi skirt. This pairing will bring out your feminine side without being provocative. Add a soft scarf or a faux fur stole to complete your look.
If you don’t feel like getting dressed, but you still want to look decent, try an embellished / bejeweled sweater or cardigan or something with a little extra ooomph. A statement piece. You can keep the rest of your look uncomplicated.
Oh! Don’t forget that sweater dress! It instantly dresses you in less than a minute and all you have to add is shoes and a little jewelry. Best piece of clothing ever when you forgot to set the alarm.
A fun or bold piece of top can never hurt. This pink fluffy softness pairs really well with skirts and jeans for fun dates.
Make sure that you have a few choices of simple, classic sweaters and knitted tops in your closet. You’ll be so thankful in the winter time when you want something with substance underneath your blazer.
