Winter is around the corner, and sweaters are the perfect layering piece for a variety of styles and tastes. Whether paired with your favorite trench coat or layered over top of a button-down oxford you can easily pile on all of the important accessories, like scarves, mittens, hats, jackets, hoodies, and even jewelry. Thanks to the versatility of this particular wardrobe piece we are going to share a few of our favorite sweater styles for you to try out this winter.
1. Fuzzy Sweater
When choosing a fuzzy sweater, avoid the itchy, scratchy pieces that Mom made you wear to school. Instead, focus on finding something with a luxurious, soft exterior that you can look forward to wearing. Cashmere is an excellent choice for winter with a clean, minimalist feel that exudes luxury, and keeps you super warm. Even better, cashmere is also light enough that it can easily go with a jacket for the perfect winter look. Blazers and waistcoats are ideal for the office and pair perfectly with the right sweater for a look that is both edgy and elegant.
2. Oversized Sweater
Imagine borrowing your boyfriend’s sweater and wearing it all day, but instead of being boxy and dowdy, it has subtle tailoring designed to accentuate your shape. Oversized sweaters present an effortless feel that pairs well with winter outfits, especially when you’re ready to snuggle up by the fire. Wear yours with thermal leggings and over-the-knee boots for a cute and comfy outfit.
3. Cable Knit Sweater
Chunky knits are a great textural addition to every winter wardrobe. Perfect for pairing with jeans, this style can give off both casual and polished vibes depending on how large the knit is. The bigger the cable knit, the more laid back these sweaters usually look, while the tighter and smaller the pattern, the dressier they typically appear.
4. Cardigan Sweater
Often the long forgotten sweater, this is definitely worth a revival in your wardrobe. A long, sleek cardigan is perfect for the office, and can go from day to night in a snap. Pair a chic cardigan sweater with a little black dress, tights, and booties for an ensemble that can easily go from the boardroom to the bar.
5. Extra-Long Sleeve Sweater
Extra-long sweaters that reach past your fingertips are trending for winter. Although it might seem a bit unusual at first, the fashion world has done a good job of modernizing this trend to please fashion savvy women across the board. From long stretching sleeves on tailored coats to casual sweatshirts, there’s something for everyone. Fortunately, you don’t have to let your sleeves drag the floor in order to test out this trend. Opt for something that lands just past your fingertips so that you can still use your hands for important daily tasks.
With so many styles to choose from, we hope you find a look that fits your preference. From traditional to trendy, and everything in between, you should have no problem staying both warm and fashion forward this winter!
