Sweater weather is commonly celebrated by wearing your favourite sweaters with your favourite jeans, leggings, or formal trousers. That’s a disservice to sweaters, which can easily spruce up any outfit. These seven surprising – but incredibly cute – ways to wear your favourite sweaters will broaden your horizons and push you out of your fashion comfort zone. Your closet has a lot more potential than you think! We’re here to help you explore the style options with the sweaters in your collection, from minis and long cardigans to stunning metallic items.
Here are five tips to wear skirts and sweaters
1. Skirts and Sweaters in Plaid
Plaid skirts and sweaters are a wardrobe must-have. Choose a tiny style in blackwatch plaid or a gorgeous tartan, and mix it with sweaters in neutral colours like grey or hunter green. If you prefer a more subtle look, black and white check is a stylish option that goes with everything from a bold cherry-red sweater to delicate jewellery. Check out short, pleated skirts with straps and buckles for a punk rock feel. Wear combat boots with thick tights or knee socks and chunky slip-on platforms, or opt for an alternative look with thick tights or knee socks and chunky slip-on platforms.
2. Glam in Two Pieces
It’s simple to put together skirt and sweater ensembles for informal cocktail parties and semi-formal occasions – all you need is a little glitter. Look for metallic skirts that will go with your sweaters. Consider a fitted gold midi skirt for a lighthearted evening event, such as a girls’ night out or New Year’s Eve, or a short silver skirt for a joyful party attire. To add a bit of elegance to your day-to-day, wear a long, flowing bronze skirt with an attractive gold watch.
3. A Boldly Colored Jumper
Don’t dismiss the appeal of matching dresses and sweaters! Several dress patterns, such as on-trend jumpers, are made to be worn with sweaters. The cutest jumpers demand to be paired with a sweater. Tuck in a long sweater and throw on a flowing kimono cardigan sweater to feel warm and snug, or show off some skin by pairing your jumper with a cropped sweater.
4. Putting Cropped Sweaters and Midi Skirts Together
When it comes to cropped sweaters, they look amazing with skirts! Put those high-waist jeans and pants away. In a flowered skirt and a sweater with long, wide sleeves that fall beyond your palms, give off a Boho impression. With a black midi or maxi and a matching sweater, you can create an alternative to a traditional cocktail dress. With a pair of black pumps or high-heeled black booties, you’ve created the ideal vampy look.
5. Long Sweaters and Short Skirts
The opposite is also a stylish combo. Shorter skirts look great with oversized sweaters because they’re lovely and comfy.
Tori Gerbig, CEO of Pink Lily Boutique, stated, “A longer, larger sweater over a form-fitting mini produces an indisputably attractive style juxtaposition.” “The contrast between a too-large sweater and a structured, formal skirt is the ideal way to get a laid-back elegant appearance without pushing too hard – excellent for those cold fall mornings when getting out of bed to get ready is difficult!”
Consider wearing a corduroy skirt with a ribbed sweater or a checkered mini with a baggy navy sweater to keep it casual. Pair a sequined or embroidered skirt with a ribbed, knit sweater for a more formal look.
