Belted sweaters, cardigans, coats and jackets are here to stay - at least for the fall season. Worn over sexy camisoles, button-downs, turtlenecks or nothing at all, belted wrap sweaters are figure flattering because they cover the rear and create a waist. This wear-with-everything knit is the new staple for country dwelling or city sauntering, proving that it has replaced the car coat as the new throw-it-on-and-go piece. Cozy up with this double-breasted wonderful wool sweater by Marc Jacobs ($198). Available at eLuxury.com, and the belted cardigan available at delia's.com.
4. Long and Lean
Become a lean, mean fashionista machine this season by sporting a long sweater coat. Wear it open for a chic lounge-around look, or create your own belted sweater style by wrapping your everyday leather belt around it. There's something about wearing a sweater coat over jeans, flannel trousers or any other fall finery that makes you feel so sophisticated yet so rustic. It makes you want to go pumpkin carving... and shoe shopping ‑- at the same time. Do both in this soft merino wool cable knit sweater coat by Banana Republic ($168). Available at BananaRepublic.com, and the long and lean tunic sweater available at delias.com.
Chunky handknit-style sweaters are replacing the millions of bland twin sets and V-necks that you have managed to collect over the years. Wear them over tailored dresses to soften the look or wear them with jeans and flat boots for a "weekend in the country" ensemble. Knit one yourself, or better yet, buy one and tell people you knitted it yourself! Bought, knit, what's the difference? This variegated cable-knit cardigan with fold over collar is available at ($49) Newport-News.com, and the white knit cowl neck sweater available at delias.com.
Sweaters are not only worn as tops... They can also be worn as shoes... Like these!!!
