10 Ways to Wear a Sweater

Last week I posted about how sweatshirts were really giving sweaters a run for their money. But that doesn’t mean that sweaters are on their way out. Sweaters are a cold weather staple. If I had it my way I’d live in sweaters (unfortunately it’s hot as hell in LA right now so I can’t).

Here are 10 stylish ways to wear a sweater. From dressing them up to dressing them down, there are endless styling possibilities when it comes to wearing your sweater collection.

Wear it with leather

This camo sweater could look so sad and dull with, say, a pair of basic jeans but add a leather pencil skirt? Welcome to Chic City! The LV bag and bangin’ accessories are also helpful additions. 090613_Tommy_Ton_S2014RTW_slide_210

As a dress

Rock a long sweater as a dress or just buy a sweater dress …  carolinesmodePFWpics5

With a summery skirt

Take a risk and combine seasons by pairing a summery skirt with a slouchy winter sweater. Btw this only works in locations with “fake ass” winters like LA.cobalt-blue-knit-sweater-dip-hem-skirt-wedge-sneakers-fashion-week-fashionable-photographer-tommy-ton-jak-jil-style-com-fashion-week-street-style

With a blazer

A sweater doesn’t have to be your last layer. Thinner sweaters definitely call for an additional layer like a statement blazer.givenchy-german-shepherd-dog-sweater-fashion-week

Thrifty style

Take a beat up vintage (or vintage inspired) sweater and match it with modern accessories like a studded purse or statement jewelry.la-modella-mafia-Model-Street-Style-Details-Fall-2012-Alexander-Wang-bag-and-Isabel-MArant-sweater-4

With matching lipstick

Red details on your sweater? Make them pop by rocking a matching lip color.phillip-lim-jw-anderson-sweater

Add a fur

Get extra cozy with a big old fur over top of a chunky sweater. Just be careful when choosing your fur – it has to match the vibe of the sweater. street-style-2013-new-york-fashion-week1

With shorts

I love the idea of being covered up on top while showing a lot of skin on the bottom. This is a great way to transition from the warmer months to the colder months.sweater-shorts

With boyfriend jeans

This look is appropriate if you are a.) a 6 foot tall model or b.) a person who enjoys being comfortable. Just makes sure to balance out this baggy look with a pair of hot heels.13+-+4

Add a little waist definition to your sweater with a thin belt.13+-+10
