A sweater and skirt pairing makes for an easy, pulled-together outfit. It’s a classic combination with more versatility than you may think; just change up the sweater thickness or the skirt style for a different look. With a little help from our favorite bloggers, we’ve curated six sweater and skirt combinations and some handy style tips that you need to try ASAP!

 

sweater with a skirt

If you’ve ever needed a reason to pull out your favorite tulle skirt, look no further! Play up the feminine factor of a tulle skirt with a thick turtleneck sweater for a sophisticated and flirty look that isn’t too over-the-top.

 

P2 - Le Happy

Pleated midi skirts aren’t just for spring. There’s something about combining them with chunky knit sweaters that is so cozy and chic for winter!

 

P3 - Like the Yogurt

Hello, 50 shades of grey! When in doubt, choose a neutral color scheme and stick with it. Embrace the beauty of monotone by choosing layers that give dimension to your outfit. Throw on an oversized pullover sweater, a thick scarf and a draped skirt for style and comfort.

 

P4 - One Small Blonde

Trying to tone down a fringe skirt? Recreate this outfit by styling a long, fringe skirt with a more subdued knit in a frosty color.

 

P5 - Sincerely Jules

A super easy way to style a colorblock sweater is by choosing a miniskirt that matches ones of the shades in it. This creates a cohesive combination that doesn’t distract from the beauty of the sweater.

 

P6 - Something Navy

Can you “knot”? Pull off this look by tucking a thin, slouchy sweater into a knotted skirt. This is a great way to accentuate your curves!

January 10th, 2016 by Jennifer Beile Round Up: Anything But Basic in An All Black Outfit

As the old adage goes, “When in doubt, wear black.” While new colors may be hailed as the “new black” year after year, wearing all black outfits will always be classic, chic, and in style. However, understandably, black can get a bit boring after a while. The trick is finding statement pieces that will stand out and bring interest to your outfit. Check out some of my tips for creating anything but basic, all black outfits!

Play With Proportion

Pairing an oversized sweater with tailored trousers and slip-on loafers creates an effortless yet chic all black look that is anything but boring.

Embrace Textures

Knit, patchwork, fishnet, faux fur, and lace: these textures and more will help an all black outfit stand out from the rest!

Show Some Skin

Showing a bit of skin, even with just cropped bottoms or short sleeves, will help balance an all black outfit.

It’s All in the Details

Adding a pop of color using accessories, like this brightly colored statement bag, will catch the eyes of your peers and keep you from losing yourself in all black.

January 6th, 2017 by Samantha Weaver This Winter, It’s All About The Sweater Dress

Hooray! New year means new clothes, right? Now that it’s finally cold enough, I’ve been coveting sweater dresses like crazy. That’s because a sweater dress = the perfect winter outfit. Check out our newest sweater dresses and how we’re styling them this winter.

There’s no better winter outfit than a sweater dress paired with knee high boots. It takes zero effort but emits 100% style. Above: Mock Neck Sweater Dress by Sadie and Sage ($28).

Front Pocket Sweater Dress by Knot Sisters ($42.50). I’ll be wearing this over thick leggings with my ankle boots and mini Coach bag.
