Sweaters for any occasion

Spice it up... with a sweater!

There are so many styles of sweaters that choosing the right one can be tricky. So how do you choose? It starts with pinpointing exactly what type of look you're going for and which sweaters are appropriate for the occasion.

The oversized sweater

This cozy, warm sweater is an especially good choice for those extremely cold days, where you just want to grab your man and cuddle by the fire. This type of sweater pairs well with leggings, skinny jeans or nothing at all (that is, if you're just going to stay home).

The crewneck or V-neck sweater

This is the perfect look for work. This sweater contours to any body type and won’t have you sweating. If your workplace prefers more refined businesswear, you can also layer this with a white button-up blouse to make it more elegant. Pair it with black pants and flats to create a more comfortable, casual look.

The cardigan

Do you ever think you’re looking sexy for work — maybe a little too sexy? Cardigans are a good way to dress up that sultry spaghetti-strap or tube top and make it a little bit more work appropriate.

The sweater dress

Every girl deserves a night out on the town, but sometimes the chilly weather can hinder your look. In that case we suggest a sweater/knit dress for a sexy look you won't freeze in. You can pair the dress with a belt, leggings and boots to create a fun, flirty look, or you can wear it simply with a pair of pumps to spice it up.

With fall here and winter on its way, a sweater is the perfect piece to complete your look. Whether you wear it to work, a date or just lounging around, these styles are perfect for the upcoming chilly weather and can spice up any wardrobe.
