11 Trendy Sweater Outfits You'll See Everyone in This Winter

I don't know about you, but I'm finding myself wearing a sweater pretty much every day as of late, and I'm not mad about it. I love a sweater outfit. But I also find myself getting into sweater-outfit ruts—i.e., not thinking beyond a sweater, straight-leg jeans, and ankle boots. There's certainly nothing wrong with that outfit combination, but it can get a little boring, especially by the time February rolls around and it feels like it's been winter for 12 years.

Luckily, Instagram is chock-full of incredible sweater-outfit inspiration thanks to chic women around the world. Below are some of my personal favorites, all of which are easy to re-create using your own sweaters and other wardrobe staples. And if you're in need of a sweater refresh, I found some of those for you to shop as well. Scroll for all the cozy outfit inspiration you need this winter.
