You don’t stay stylish and on-trend by staying the same! There are so many ways to wear knit, aside from your usual jeans or shorts.

Knit dresses are my personal go-to sweater weather outfits. When I’m too lazy to mix and match a top and bottom, I reach for these dresses and a cute pair of flats! But this season, I think I’ll get inspiration from this and wear my dresses with white sneakers. It’s a great weekend look, don’t you think?
Yes, you can wear knit to work! Just pair it with something more polished like a tailored skirt or cigarette pants.
5. Double Knits
We all know denim on denim, but double knits are a less common approach to coordinating. I love this look though, it seems so cozy! This is definitely a new look I’ll be trying out.
6. Midi Skirts
Feeling girly? Tuck a pink knit sweater into a midi skirt for an instant girly look. It’s perfect for Sunday brunch, or even a casual date night look.
If you need to stay extra warm during sweater weather, go for knit turtlenecks! The extra warmth from your top also means you can wear a shorter skirt. If it gets chilly, just bring a jacket to layer over.
There’s something really stylish about oversized clothes. We see a lot of oversized outfits during Fashion Week, and all the cool girls seem to have this look mastered. Well it’s time you tried it too! An oversized sweater paired with flare pants will give you a laid-back 70s vibe.
Still not over the cropped trend? You don’t have to let go of it just yet. Cropped sweaters or hoodies can be your go-to pieces for warmer days. Pair them with jeans, or even a cute skirt!

Here’s another trend you can incorporate into your sweater weather wardrobe: lace-up! Lace-up sweaters can instantly give your cozy, covered-up looks an edgy twist.
11. Colorful Knit
Don’t be afraid of playing with colors, too! Just because it’s cold and dreary doesn’t mean your outfit should be too. Pairing your knitwear with culottes is also another office-appropriate combination.
