How to slay sweater weather!
These cute and comfy pieces are calling your name!
It’s about that time again! Time to switch out your T-shirts for sweaters! Get a head start by rocking these styles you’ll be sure to see at every turn this fall. The weather may be cooling down, but your fashion sense can stay hot like fire!
Embrace lace-up details!
If you're someone who loves dressy pieces, but craves the comfort of a warm and fuzzy top, you need a lace-up sweater! It's the perfect addition to your wardrobe. Layer a bright cami underneath it so it peeks out through the laces for a bolder look. Or, pair it with jeans and some knee-high boots for a casual look.

Have fun with cropped tops!
The trick to pulling off a crop top or short sweater comes down to wearing the right bottoms. High-waisted skirts or billowy pants will let you show the pe
rfect amount of skin, while keeping the look covered up enough for the cooler weather.

Everyone should have at least one playful sweater with a fun illustration on it! It's great because it’s an instant statement piece. Just make sure you go easy on the accessories so the two don’t clash.

Show some shoulder!
Off-the-shoulder tops were all the rage this summer, and they aren't going away anytime soon. That's why you'll want the sweater version in your closet this fall! You can wear it and show off both your shoulders, or pull it to one side and just have one of your shoulders show. Feel free to even dust a bit of shimmer power on your shoulders so they glisten.

Sport over-sized styles!
The best thing about big sweaters is that they are super comfortable! But just because they are large doesn’t mean they won’t be flattering on you. You just have to be careful what you pair them with. For a more dressy look, style your favorite oversized sweater with a skirt. If you’re going for an easy-going outfit, sport some black leggings and boots with them. You can even belt it if you want to create more of an hourglass shape.

Flaunt bell sleeves!
Whether you’re wearing quarter-length bell sleeves, or full length ones, adding volume to your arms is a fun way to create a dramatic look this fall. Balance out the wide and flowy sleeves with dark skinny jeans to keep the look understated.

Rock a bold knit!
Look fierce in neon! If it’s a little out of your comfort zone, try layering it on top of a white button-up. Having a white collar pop out and its sleeves rolled up will give it a more sophisticated feeling.

This classic print never goes out of style, but that doesn’t mean it can’t be updated from time to time. That’s where accessories come into play. Stacking on metallic necklaces will give a preppy sweater a modern vibe that turns heads for all the right reasons.

When you’re looking to try something different, wear this funky trend! Be careful not to go overboard with the amount of cutouts, though. Your outfit will quickly go from fab to drab. A sweater that has them only on the sleeves, or only one near your collar bone, are great. But one that has cutouts in both areas is too much. Remember to keep your bottoms when wearing this style of top so it’s the center of attention!
