If you do enjoy a putting some prep in your step, then look no further. Commit to the part with a pair of plaid trousers and Mary Jane pumps.

This isn’t the first time we’ve spotted Chung with a slung sweater. The style veteran attended the Mulberry show during London Fashion Week in a Mulberry shirtdress with a draped sweater and the Alexa Pickle Green Polish Buffalo Bag ($1850).

Spotted in the streets of Paris, this model-off-duty swung a striped sweater over her shoulders, keeping the rest of her look quite simple.

A key element to achieving a new styling trick is to make it look effortless. If you tend to avoid preppy iterations, try this look. Grab a chunky sweater and wrap it around your neck. The sleeves will fall in the right places and you won’t look like you’re gearing up for a golf match. Win, win!

For your next evening ensemble, try tossing a simple sweater over your gown, like this street styler did. We love how she completely transformed her pale blue dress and heels with this simple yet effective styling piece.

We love a good schoolboy look, which is why we gravitated toward this boyish ensemble. Tip: tightly knot your sweater in the center and scrunch it down over your shoulders to create a much-needed academic touch.

Ashley Olsen

We couldn’t help but pay homage to Ms. Olsen’s look from a few years back. As is the case with most trends, one Olsen or the other did it first!

We love the athletic vibe of this look. The baseball cap and sweater balance the dress and heels to create a dynamic look.

Prolong the life of your overalls and try tying your sweater around those. If it’s too cold to wear a tank like this model, opt for a long-sleeved shirt instead!
