Different Ways to Wear Knitwear
Cashmere sweaters and cardigans are a classic piece of knitwear that everyone owns. Regardless of whether we are getting ready for work or just lounging in front of the fire, we reach out for knitwear as soon as the air gets chilly.
Whatever way you style the actual sweater or cardigan, it keeps you warm and cozy. Most of us though pair sweaters over leggings or jeans and that’s that. Because we are already familiar with the comfort and warmth it brings, we are unable to break out of this habit.
While it is an easy and comfortable outfit, there are various other ways that you can take your sweater game to the next level. We have listed a few ideas to inspire you so you can rock the chic look while still being comfortable and cozy.
Layered over Plaid
If you admire the preppy look for this season, then plaid and knitwear can work wonders together. Layering is one of the easiest ways to make knitwear work. You can layer a solid colored sweater or pullover over a plaid shirt or play with patterns and instead of a plain sweat wear a patterned one.
If you like Ariana Grande’s oversized hoodie vibe, you’ll love sweater dresses. Brands like OtherLinks makes oversized sweaters you can wear as a dress. Pair them with sheer leggings and over-the-knee boots.
Channeling the 1990s
With the 90’s style making a comeback, turtleneck sweaters will be easy to wear. Just pair them with high-waisted mom jeans and tuck it in the front. You can find the perfect turtleneck over at OtherLinks and create an outfit with an ode to the 90s.
Rock the Androgynous Vibe
This outfit is perfect for the days when you don’t want to dress in a feminine or masculine way. A black sweater over black skinny jeans, accessorized with sneakers. While the monochromatic outfit is perfect as a casual outfit, you can dress it up a bit by adding a solid-colored long jacket and exchanging sneakers with boots.
The Femme Look
Cashmere sweaters are some of the easiest pieces for creating feminine looks. You can pair a light cashmere pullover tucked into a pencil skirt, tweed jacket, a string of pearls, a pair of strappy heels and minimal jewelry. For a more casual look, swap the pearls for a statement necklace and the heels with loafers or ballet flats.
Change up the usual sweater over leggings by swapping the legging with ripped jeans. A dark wash pair of ripped jeans with an oversized sweater from OtherLinks and a pair of sneakers is the most casual outfit with a trendy flair.
For the days when the weather’s a bit colder than usual, add a blanket scarf in the mix. Layered over a simple pullover or turtleneck, jeans and over-the-knee or riding boots, it turns a casual outfit into chic.
Since cashmere sweaters are versatile, you can dress them up to create a work-appropriate look. Pair a striped or plain pullover with straight tailored trousers, loafers or closed-toed heels, and layer a blazer over it.
