We’ve all got a comfy, snuggly sweater that we love to wear from time to time. I like to throw mine on if I’m feeling lazy, but I can also dress it up so I look like I’ve made an effort too. If you’re running out of ways to wear your favorite sweater, try one of the following 10 and see if you like them:

[highlight color=”pink”] Add a Belt   [/highlight] Adding a belt to your favorite sweater will immediately change the shape and make it look more flattering. This is perfect if you feel a little frumpy and want to look more ‘hourglass’.

[highlight color=”pink”] Mini Skirt   [/highlight] Try pairing your sweater with a mini skirt. They contrast one another perfectly; one is cosy and snug, while the other is flirty. Depending on the weather, you might want to wear tights with this combo too.

[highlight color=”pink”] Add a Collar [/highlight]   Wearing a collar underneath a sweater can make all the difference. Pick a nice shirt to wear underneath or buy a collar on its own (they exist, you know).

[highlight color=”pink”] Skater Skirt and Boots   [/highlight]  This is the perfect look for transitional weather; your favorite sweater paired with a skater skirt and some boots. It’s up to you whether you want to bare your legs or not, if it’s on the warmer side, go bare, if not, wear some chic tights. An Aran knit from somewhere like Aran Sweaters Direct would suit this look well.

[highlight color=”pink”] Midi/Maxi Skirt  [/highlight] Believe it or not, a sweater can actually look great with a midi or maxi skirt too. Wear your look with some awesome sandals, boots or heels, just make sure the length of your skirt compliments the shoe you’re wearing.

[highlight color=”pink”] Jeans and Pumps   [/highlight] If you want to be warm and comfortable and don’t mind looking casual, wear your sweater with your favorite jeans and a comfy pair of pumps. This look is great for relaxing, heading to the movies or grabbing a cup of coffee with the crew.

[highlight color=”pink”] Layered Up [/highlight]  Sweaters are a great layering up item too. You could wear a longer top underneath, with leggings and boots. A slouchy bag would finish the look off perfectly!

[highlight color=”pink”] Boyfriend Jeans and Heels [/highlight]   I love this look because it’s the perfect outfit for a smart/casual event. Pair your jumper with a nice set of boyfriend jeans and your favourite wedges or heels. This look also works with a collar underneath your sweater. This is a great way to look awesome fast!

[highlight color=”pink”] Pencil Skirt   [/highlight]  This look would work well for a meeting at work. A sweater paired with a nice pencil skirt always looks fab, especially if the pencil skirt is a leather texture. You can then wear heels or nice flats depending on the look you’re going for. I might even dare to wear my favourite training shoes with this kind of outfit.

[highlight color=”pink”] With Skinny Jeans/Leggings [/highlight]   If your sweater is long enough, wear it with skinny jeans or leggings. As skinny jeans and leggings are so tight, they look great with an oversized sweater. It balances the look perfectly!

Try these different looks out and you’re bound to find a few that you like. Have any more suggestions? How do you wear your favorite sweater? Leave a comment below. See you soon!
