Sweater Outfits for Women. The weather is a fickle thing, especially during winters. With the temperature ever fluctuating, it can be hard to figure out what to wear. So that is why we recommend a few very staple items to keep on hand… one of them being a sweater.
A sweater goes with just about everything. Whether you pair it with jeans and a jacket or if you wear it with a party dress, it adds warmth to any outfit and serves as an added layer that will up the style of whatever you are wearing.
For this season of sweater-weather, we want to bring you some gorgeous looks you can try today to best show off your beautiful sweaters! But before doing that, let’s look at some simple tips for wearing a sweater.
Tips on How to Wear a Sweater
- When wearing an oversized sweater, make sure the rest of your outfit is well-fitting. You can add a belt to your waist to further define your figure and prevent your curves from being overwhelmed under too much fabric.
- De-pill your sweaters if the fabric starts to pill. A pilly sweater looks unkempt and sloppy.
- If wearing a jacket or coat over your sweater, opt for one that is more fitted and adds structure. A baggy, oversized jacket plus a baggy sweater is too much bagginess!
- As with most clothing, choose sweaters complimenting your figure and complexion. Avoid stark, unflattering colors that wash you out or do nothing for your “type.”
- Most sweaters require hand-washing. Be careful before tossing into the washer machine unless you have checked the tags first!
- Match a sweater with a mid-length skirt and a tiny handbag.
- Wear an oversized sweater with a mini skirt and leggings.
- Keep a sweater dress in your wardrobe and wear it with a winter hat.
- Thigh-high suede boots are a great accessory to match with a sweater and leggings.
- Adidas superstar shoes are just downright meant to be worn with sweaters, leggings and a hat.
- Wearing a sweater over a sweater isn’t a bad idea at all. If layering, just mind your fabrics and opt for thinner, less bulky material.
