Sweaters don’t just have to be another layering piece in your winter wardrobe in an effort to stay warm. They can act as the focal point to your outfit. Whether you’re pairing it with jeans, a skirt, or a great pair of trousers, it’s time to let your sweater be the piece that holds your look together. There are a number of elements that go into picking out the right sweater. Here are 4 sweater styles to try this winter to make your winter outfits a little less boring.
This sounds like a broad category but it’s one of those things where you’ll know it when you see it. It’s the kind of sweater that makes you stop scrolling and hit add to cart. You want to look for a sweater with a twist. This can be the cut, a pattern, even sequins. While this won’t be an everyday kind of sweater, it’s definitely one worth having.
Is there anything better than an oversized sweater on a cold day? It’s a cozy look that adds an interesting element to your typical sweater based look. My only note here would be to be mindful of the sizing of the sweater. Oversized is great but when a sweater is too big it can become unflattering. There’s a balance but overall this is a pretty easy style to wear.
Cashmere is a classic closet staple. It ranks right up there with a little black dress. If you don’t already own a cashmere sweater, you should consider picking one up. It’s one of those things that will never go out of style. This is definitely an everyday style type of sweater. It’s an investment, but it’s a worthwhile one. A luxurious material like cashmere always makes a statement.
Off The Shoulder
I enjoy the mix of fitted and oversized off the shoulder sweaters. There’s something to be said about both of these fits. One is sleek and the other offers some of the same things the oversized sweater look has with the benefits of showing a bit of shoulder. When you wear the oversized style, you can also adjust how much you’re showing which is really helpful too.
