I used to complain about the dreary months in which I rotated through variations of what was once considered a "boring outfit combination." Nowadays, I find a sweater-and-jeans outfit to be way more interesting than it ever has been. We're still in the thick of a quiet-luxury redux, and that just inspires me to wear simple outfits that say more with fewer items.
Living in New York City, I'm surrounded by the best dressed people on a daily basis. Anywhere from my morning walk to a quick stop into a coffee shop, I'm finding myself inspired. In those spaces, I've been seeing New Yorkers style their jeans with these seven types of sweaters, and I'm determined to copy these looks ASAP.
1. Fitted Turtleneck
Lately, fashion people are all about layering up, and a fitted turtleneck is on everyone's shopping list. Whether you choose to pair it with a cool blazer or under your favorite sweater, the possibilities will be endless.
The easiest way to show someone that you're a fashion girl is to wear an asymmetrical top. It's a bold way to make a statement, and when it's part of a good basic like this one, it's a must-have.
If you're not copying the Miu Miu runways, what are you doing? Showing a peek of a white T-shirt with a crew-neck is the layered look that we're all after thanks to what fashion designers have taught us.
6. Cardi Party
Cardigans are a girl's best friend, especially when you're on the cusp of November. Whether you style them with shorts or an overworn pair of baggy jeans, you'll never regret buying into this trend.
