While the Sydney weather still allows for us to bare skin in dresses and singlets, we’re well into Autumn now, and as the mercury starts to drop, sweaters are quickly becoming our best friends. Once upon a time, the only sweaters anyone wore were those grandma knitted and sent us for Christmas. But let’s just say, Grandma was onto something! Sweaters are one of this season’s biggest must-haves for both men and women. Not only are they perfect for throwing on on those lazy days, but they are extremely versatile and can be styled for almost any occasion. “How?” you ask?! Here are just a few ways we like to personalise our basic, and definitely one of the most worn sweaters in our wardrobe.
Whether it be a collared blouse or dress, peeping a collar over the top of your sweater adds a cute touch to what would otherwise be plain and boring. Experiment with different colours, styles such as Peter Pan collars, and even textures such as lace, studded or sequined collars!
What better way to style a trend than with another trend?! Statement necklaces and sweaters are a match made in heaven. During the colder months many of us tend to turn to duller palettes. But necklaces, like the bright pink one we’ve got on, add the perfect touch of colour to brighten your look and jazz it up for the fanciest of occassions.
Scarves are the optimal functional accessory. The infinite patterns and styles of scarves out there mean you can personalise your winter look, while staying super cosy!
So next time you decide to throw on a sweater, make sure you remember our quick and simple tips to turn lounge wear into an outfit fit for any occassion.
Let us know which one was your favourite or other ways you might add a little pizazz to your sweaters!
