Hey there, pretty gals! As the weather gets colder and colder, we just know that you cannot get enough of your cozy best friend- the sweater! We’re also sure you’ve spotted your favorite models and celebrities sporting one. Surely, there is no better way of embracing the sweater weather.
Sweaters are super cozy, comfy, and is probably the easiest way to get warm during the cold season. But please, never ever assume that they need to be frumpy, boring, and plain. So, we did our homework this month and came up with a chic list of the most fabulous sweater trends for this year. From basic knit to color blocks, name it all! So, keep scrolling and check out the best sweater trends that will give you the coziest makeover this year.
Tuck It In
I wasn’t really surprised when I saw tucked in sweaters as one of the trends this year. Because most of us are totally aware how fabulous a sweater looks when tucked into jeans, skirts, or trousers. The secret in making a statement with this style is balance. Loose sweaters are great when matched with slightly fitted bottoms, while structured sweaters look best when worn with loose-fitted bottoms. Also, choose a sweater with not so complicated hemline like the one below so you won’t have any trouble if you want to fully tuck it in or go half-way.
Can you think of more comfortable top to wear when the weather gets so chilly? Nothing beats the coziness of an oversized sweater I believe. Extra long sweaters with extra long sleeves, even chunky, baggy, oversized ones are so much in these days. And because they are in trend, it means that you can definitely wear those not only at home. We’ve seen a lot of fashionistas wear it on the street and even in runways. For these cozy pieces, the possibilities are limitless. You can go for different necklines, prints, textures, and even embellishments. For me, oversized sweaters paired with a fitted bottom is totally awesome.
This what I mean when I say that sweaters don’t need to be boring and plain. This year, sweaters with surface are surely on the top list. Sweaters with buttons, embellishments, appliques, and patchwork, or those quilted and bedazzled are totally in. These pieces are just so gorgeous. You can wear them with your plain outfits or match them with your patterned or floral dress for a unique fashion statement.
Sweaters with long puffy sleeves are also another surprise on the list. For this, your best choice are sweaters with either lantern or bishop sleeves. These sleeves are usually puffed from shoulders and are fitted at the end. The nice thing about this style is that it gives your outfit an instant feminine touch. Match them either with your skirts, pants, or trousers for a cozy but girly OOTD.
This probably one of the most common among these trends. Cropped sweaters have been us for a year or two now. And with its growing popularity, cropped sweaters seem like they have been a part of every fashionistas’ must-haves. For some, it may not make sense to wear something cropped when it’s cold, but when worn properly, cropped sweaters are definitely a bomb. Layering them over your loose shirts or matching them with your high-waist skirts or jeans are probably the most flattering ways to sport them.
Anything fuzzy for winter is perfect. And a fuzzy fleece sweater sounds a lot better. You just have to be careful in wearing it or else you’ll look like one of the casts of Monsters Inc. Fuzzy sweaters look best when worn with your fitted jeans and pencil skirts. But if you really want to be a head-turner and stand out, wear one with your leather jeans for super stunning contrast in textures.
Another surprising style that is making its way to the trend list are sweaters with cutouts. Cutouts in sweaters may make no sense unless worn on bare skin which is impossible when it’s cold. When you want to go for this trend this winter, stay away from those with big cutouts and choose those with small cutouts either on the waist, chest, or sleeves. And instead on wearing them on bare body, try wearing them over your skintight sheer tops that will surely give your outfits a dramatic twist. This is also something you can do with any cutout long sleeves top that you have.
High Neck Sweaters
It is probably the best time to say no to avoiding high neck tops, high neck sweaters to be exact. Try on sweaters with mocks necks, turtlenecks, or even cowl necks and you surely won’t regret it. You’ll love not only its coziness but also the instant classy vibe it will give your whole look. And the best thing about high necks? They are extremely versatile especially when layering. Wear them as it is or layer them under your cardigan, blazer, or coat on days that are so frigid.
There you have it, gorgeous gals. Have these cozy babies in your closet and you’ll be in for a super comfy and fabulous winter.
