Hi Simplicity is Ultimate Sophistication readers, this is Ying from My Dressy Ways! I love Alysson and her blog, and am so excited to guest post for her while she’s enjoying her vacation!
Nothing beats the cozy warmth of a great sweater! Gone are the days of just a crew neck sweater or cardigan. We now have so many options! Here are my favorites and how I’ve worn them!
Slouchy Sweaters (Looks #1 -3)
The epitome of cozy comfort, a slouchy sweater gives you warmth with a bonus: you can let it all hang out. (You know what I mean!) I also love a slouchy cardigan, as seen in Looks 1 and 3. Try belting a loose cardigan like I did in Look 3 if you want to add some shape to the silhouette.
Classic Sweaters (Looks # 4 – 6)
Snug fitting cardigans and pullovers are polished and sophisticated. Add some interest with layers. The trick is to keep everything underneath light. In Look #4, my leopard print blouse is tissue thin. I also have a chambray button up shirt that I’ve been wanting to try this combo with. It’s just MIA right now. Who says you can’t wear a belt over a pullover sweater? Break the rules.
Cardigans are the perfect piece to extend your wardrobe. Wear your summer dresses in the fall/winter by adding a cardigan and tights! (Look #5) And why not wear a cardigan buttoned up and all on its own? (Look #6)
Sweater options are endless and they work great for layering and styling. Keep it fun with varying silhouettes and colors. Don’t let a little cold weather kill your style!
