4 Ways to Transform Your Sweaters

I will say it time and time again I love fall/winter because it means I can layer up and wear more clothes. Sweaters are my most favorite because—layers. The only problem is you don’t want to get swallowed by the clothes, you need to have some accents, i.e. accessories. Adding the small details can take a look to the next level and away from blah.

Below are a few layering/accessory combos to make you stand out from the sea of boring.

The Skirt Effect

I love the origami look of this dress. With a sweater layered over you’re left with a cool skirt. Add gold accessories, suede booties and crossbody bag and you’re set to conquer the day.

Layering with Paisley

For a 70s vibe (very popular on the runways) layer an oversized sweater over a floral blouse with secretary bow. Balance out the top with flare jeans that are fitted through the knee and add suede accessories to polish off the look.

Prints on Prints

A check print sweater with a large plaid printed poncho vest is an easy way to mix prints. It’s all about balance—simplified print with a large print, or small repeating print with simple large print. To balance your flowy top half, pull on a knit pencil skirt for effortless and casual chic. Get crazy with mixing colors in your accessories, because why not! (Hint: all the colors in this look are primary colors, making it easy for them to go together)

Graphic Sweater

A cool graphic sweater looks even cooler with a patterned scarf adding dimension and more color. Keep your look relaxed with distressed boyfriend jeans and some cool cut-out ankle boots. And don’t forget glossy lips!
