It’s almost Pumpkin Spice Latte time, ladies! Oh my god, we’re so excited we can hardly stand it. Labor Day has come and gone, and it’s time to get serious about sweaters. Winter is coming.
Ok, sorry for the outburst. We just love that crisp coolness we just know is coming our way in October. Now is the time to plan your winter outfits, so that you can look cute (and stay warm) when winter arrives in full force.
We curated this list of outfit ideas for you from Pinterest, and we’re excited to find more. Send us your suggestions!
Trend: Chunky Knit, Comfy Size
This outfit is just right for the transition between Fall and Winter. It’s cozy, like a blanket that you carry around with you. Despite the oversized look, it’s put-together. This sweater is exactly what we’re seeing in Europe for the winter, and paired with the hat it has a little bit of Hipster charm (without going full throttle).
Trend: Layered Warmth
If the temperature drops it like it ain’t hot, you can count on layers to keep you from freezing your tail off. This outfit incorporates several, from the dressy menswear button up to the thick, luxurious trenchcoat. The sweater is not the focus here, but it certainly could be if you added a bright scarf or a statement necklace. Pullover layering sweaters can be found in all your favorite stores this season.
Trend: Reversed Denim
The denim jacket made a big comeback in 2016, and we were happy to dust off our old Canadian Tuxedos.’ This is a warm and cute twist on the look for Winter. When the snow starts flying, take your denim jacket and pull a chunky knit sweater (preferably with cabled details) over it. Leaving the jackets open like in the photo should be possible, since you’ll warm up so much. Hot!
Trend: Asyemmtry Rules
For a moment, picture yourself on a Monday morning in January. It’s been cold a long time. The novelty of snow and ice is really starting to wear off. You need an outfit that is professional, but you seriously just want to be warm and comfortable. This is a great one for just that situation. The uneven hemline of this sweater-tunic is flattering to all body shapes, and you can choose what to wear on the bottom. We suggest a high-quality pair of leggings like those in the photo for ultimate comfort, but you could easily wear this versatile sweater with a pencil skirt or jeans. Case of the Winter Mondays, solved!
Trend: Loooooong Cardigans
A look straight from Milan, this is all over the fashion airwaves for 2016’s Winter. Dusters may sound like something you should be cleaning with, but the retro look is also warm and easy to pull off. Choose a neutral color like this deep gray, and keep the rest of the outfit streamlined. This will balance the flowy, oversized nature of the sweater itself. It keeps you looking trim.
Trend: Retro Granny Squares
Building on the Duster trend, there is a highly 70s look coming out in Winter 2016. Granny squares are easy to make yourself, but you can also just take a shortcut and buy a colorful sweater like this one. It is eye-catching and retro, but you may want to belt the sweater as shown to give it a modern structure. Make your statement with your winter sweater.
