Make Use Of Those Sweaters!

When we see sweaters, we think of "old school knits", something that our grandparents would wear... They're like, 'been on existence for a hundred years... But this season, surprisingly, sweaters are introduced in the top trends... There are several cool ways to wear them, here are some tips from ivillage.com...

1. Furry



It's lush, it's plush, it's comfy and it's cozy. It's fur. Faux or real, fur has a way of making you feel grand. If you don't care for the full-blown fur coat look, then a fur trim sweater is the perfect compromise. The beauty of most fur trim sweaters is that many times the fur is detachable so it's like buying two sweaters for the price of one. This slim fitting chalet chic cardigan by Vince ($345) is the pinnacle of luxe dressing. Available at eLuxury.com.

2. Slouchy

A slouchy sweater is a must-have style to wear with those superskinny jeans or a slim-fitting leather skirt. Not only is this style comfy and sexy, it can also hide a few of those extra pounds you may have put on. This shawl collar boucle beauty by Victoria's Secret ($48) is perfect for an autumn weekend excursion, a romantic night by the fire or a grand entrance to a cocktail party. Available at VictoriasSecret.com




3. Belted


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.

5. Chunky


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.


6. Fairly




Sexy Scottish-inspired fair isle sweaters inundated the fall runways this season. This apr├Ęs ski patterned knit can be worn schussing down the slopes or warming up with a hot toddy (and a hot ski instructor) at the lodge. In fact, these are also a perfect complement to the autumnal tweeds and menswear inspired herringbones that you'll be wearing on a day-to-day basis. Feature this feminine, fitted-snap turtleneck with snowflake motif by Vince ($275) in your wardrobe right away. Available at SaksFifthAvenue.com
