Throw It Over A Dress
While a sweater is most predictably paired with denim, try buttoning up this soft layer over an overtly feminine dress. A textured, shrunken sweater can feel intentionally coy over a printed frock—especially one that explodes with volume from the waist down. Pair the whole look with tights, and wear your spring dresses well into winter.

Wear It With Slinky Pieces
Your mohair, furry, or fuzzy textured sweaters look totally scrumptious when styled with a lingerie-inspired camisole or dress. Let a silky number intentionally stick out the bottom of a warm knit. This combo can look romantic (especially in creams and nudes) or very ‘90s-esque (in a slip-dress-and-cardigan sort of way).

Pair It With Fancy Pants
In the spirit of true high-low dressing, pair a menswear crewneck sweater with super fun party pants. Think: sequins, prints, or embellishments. Since your sweater will feel roomy and understated, you can take risks with some seriously festive trousers that would otherwise feel too costume-y.

Go For Statement Earrings
Glamorize any old sweater by pulling back your hair and letting an amazing pair of earrings steal the show. Look for earrings that are oversized and over-the-top with gems, shine, and shape. Skip necklaces or bracelets that compete, and pair back to a simpler pant or jean (a cropped skinny, perhaps) and a super sexy heel.

Give It Some Edge With Leather
A traditionally cabin-friendly sweater can feel super relevant with a sexier fabrication, like leather. A leather pant (slim works, or try a baggy silhouette for extra cool points), shorts, or skirt updates this knit for date night or holiday celebrations. Be thoughtful in your color pairings—perhaps dark green with black, or a soft peach with burgundy—to really make an impact.
