7 Secrets to Successful Sweater Styling
1. Length Matters
Team long sweaters over skinny bottoms and short sweaters over fuller bottoms.
Team a thin top underneath your thick sweater that will also make the outfit whole without the sweater. This way you can always take it off if it gets too warm.
3. Style Bulky with Short/Cropped Jackets
A guaranteed cute look to wear a cropped denim or leather jacket over your bulky sweater. Instantly making the sweater less shapeless.
4. The extended wardrobe
Style your sweater over a dress to create a new look.
5. Colour Block
Sweaters are the perfect item for a spot of colour blocking. Make a statement with a brightly coloured sweater.
Perfect the outfit by repeating the same colour as your sweater somewhere else in your outfit: bag, shoes, or simply an accessory.
7. Necklines Matter
Turtle necked sweaters are simple but other sweater necklines need help to make the outfit complete. A statement necklace, scarf or shirt collar are all perfect items to prevent your sweater from looking boring or plain.
