8 Ways to Make a Sweater a Statement Piece

Sweaters are a must have during the colder months and this season, they are a star. A sweater used to be something I would wear on a lazy day, on weekends, or even when I am just staying at home because they are comfortable, cozy, and keep you warm on a cold winter day. Moreover, sweaters are usually plain and boring. This season, designers have turned them into a high fashion piece and have styled them in ways I didn’t even think would go well; they are stylish and fun.

Start layering and wear your comfy and cozy sweater with a button up shirt underneath; this will give it a classy and sophisticated look. When layering, you can also change your style by pairing this look with different textures such as leather, animal print, or denim; and pair them with booties, or high heels. Just have fun mix and matching and remember to stay comfortable with your outfit.

You can also pair your sweatshirts with skirts; this is in trend for this season and it is something new to the eye. You can mix and match them with any kind of skirts; different lengths, textures and colors, as well as different cuts. My personal favorite is to wear my sweaters with a mini flared skirt.

If you’re tired of wearing the same simple sweater, you can revamp your closet with new fashionable sweaters which you can definitely find in your favorite boutiques right now, and start styling them however you want.

A style that is in trend is embellished sweaters; this makes it easier to style, just wear it with a simple pair of pants and high heels and you’re good to go.

Another style is printed/patterned sweaters; they are kind of the same as the embellished ones because you don’t need to do much with them. You can wear it with any monotone colored bottoms and you’re done.

Cropped sweaters are the continuation of cropped tops that we all loved this summer; it gives you an edgy look and they are perfect with anything high waisted… or not if you like to show a little skin.
