Staying warm in the fall is what life is all about, it’s the season to be transitioning into our thicker outfits rather than our denim shorts and crop tops!
What’s the best thing about wearing oversized sweaters? It’s probably the fact that you can still look great while also not spending tons of cash on clothes you’ll never wear. They’re also so easy to accessorize and will go with virtually any denim trousers, jeans or skirts. That’s the total beauty of cute sweaters.
We don’t want to get sick when it’s cold so should make sure we are prepared as the colder months come into play! Although Fall isn’t too cold, it’s good to start transitioning your wardrobe into the thicker, woolly outfits before you find yourself half way through winter with nothing to wear! Even if sweaters aren’t normally your go-to outfit choice when it’s chilly, there is never a better time to get your style on and make yourself feel extra confident than in those months towards the end of the year! October, November, and December are the perfect months to find your winter style and prepare your wardrobes for the storms that come in terms of fashion and in the weather too.
Turtle necks are the warmest and most traditional form of sweater you can get, they always look great with some classic denim jeans, or you could spice up the look with a skirt or even some of your favorite boots. The great thing about wearing a turtle neck is that you won’t have to wear a scarf if you don’t really like them, but you’ll still be warm. During the colder months, especially in the fall, you can look silly if you wear all sorts of different layers on top of the outfit. People and many fashion icons find it easier to just rock their turtle-neck and they’re done!
Probably the hardest decision though is finding the right color for you, the fall is always about darker, more mysterious colors but that doesn’t necessarily mean that’s what you have to go for. Colors like grey, navy, black, maroon and even rustic orange are all at the top of our sweater list but if you’d prefer something brighter, or more out there then that’s totally up to you. If that is your thing but you want to stay with the trend this fall and winter, then red and pink are in so they’re probably the colors you should go for! You definitely don’t have to feel uncomfortable to look good, and this is definitely a misconception with our society! Sweaters are so fashionable and can be paired with so many different pieces to complete the outfit.
Ripped-look sweaters are what this fall is all about. You’ve probably heard of ripped jeans, ripped tees and ripped jackets, well now it’s all about the ripped sweater look. The idea of this look is to create an edgy and ‘out-there’ style that few people would be able to get away with. You can either buy a made ripped-look sweater or you can get crafty and make one yourself, if it’s cheaper then why not!
First thing you can do is buy a sweater (we would recommend wholesale sweaters as they’re often the best value for money), wash it before you use it even if it’s not second hand as it makes the sweater feel softer and more comfortable. Then simply get your craft scissors and you can go crazy with them! No one is stopping you from adding holes and rips into the centre or main body of the sweater, just be careful where you put them.
To get a more authentic look, you can rip and cut the bottom and sleeves of the sweater and you’re definitely ready to go. If you’re lazy (like us!) then you might just want to purchase a ripped-look sweater rather than going through the effort of making your own. That’s totally fine too! We love this look with a white or beige jumper as the ripped-look is extra cool with those cool toned colours!
Lace sweaters, and cute sweaters with lace on them are so popular right now. This is probably because of the popularity of lace on the catwalks this season. Fall is all about looking good, feeling confident and being able to get out your oversized sweaters and rocking any outfit! It’s not always easy to find your perfect outfit but these types of sweaters go with anything! If you’re the type of girl who prefers wearing an oversized shirt with her sweater, then that’s great but if you’d rather rock a maxi skirt that’s that totally in fashion too.
Expressing yourself and who you are through fashion is what life is all about. You may not be the most fashionable person around but if you can get the grasps of trends and you follow them then you will always look trendy, chic and fabulous. Pair your lacy sweater with some heels, if you’re going on a night out drinking or with some vans or flats if you would rather go for a more chilled vibe – either way, you’re still looking on you’re a-game.
We don’t really have any advice is terms of the color you should go for, normally the more neutral colours look the best with lace sweaters, colors such as light grey, nude, white or beige are a top favourite for those who want the get the ultimate elegant, yet warm, cosy look for this fall. To keep you extra warm when it’s cold why not try those cute, oversized sweaters with the lace on the arms? You’ll be able to rock that look any day.
