20 Style Tips On How To Wear Knit Sweaters This Winter

Unless you live in New York, where it has been unseasonably warm this year, you’ve probably stocked up on sweaters for the winter weather. While knit sweaters are cozy and adorable, they don’t always look super stylish. I’m 5’0 with curves, and I can tell you that, more often than not, knit sweaters end up looking bulky and weird on me. Fortunately, there are lots of other ways you can wear this winter essential besides just throwing it on with jeans (you can obviously do that too).

Want to bring your favorite warm sweater to a new level? You definitely can! The below outfit ideas should serve as your style inspiration for making your knit sweaters look chic and fashionable, rather than just big mom sweaters (you know the look I’m talking about). Here are 20 style tips on how to wear knit sweaters this winter that will also take you through the beginning of spring and even the fall.

 

1. Stay extra cozy by layering a knit cardigan over your knit sweater.
