Whether you prefer cropped sweaters or chunky rib knits, there is an ideal sweater for every taste and style. Read on as we explore how to choose the right sweater based on the weather, colour, and fabric, the best ways to dress it up or down for any occasion, and how to accessorize it to stand out. Plus, we’ll be sharing our picks on some of the trendiest sweater styles that are perfect for this transitional weather!

1. Choose the right sweater

To choose the right sweater, keep your style, fit, weather, colour, and quality in mind. Here are a few tips to get you started:

  • To determine the style of your sweater, think about your favourite looks and reverse engineer it from there. Think of the fabric, sleeves, and neckline of your sweater that will combine well with the rest of your wardrobe.
  • Choose among fitted, oversized, or cropped sweater styles based on what flatters your body shape the most. Consider a sweater slightly larger than your usual size, to avoid shrinking after a couple of cycles.
  • Select a sweater colour that complements your skin tone and matches your existing wardrobe, based on whether you have a cold, warm, or neutral colour palette.
  • Plan for the weather by choosing thicker materials like cashmere for a colder climate and lighter fabrics like cotton or linen for a warmer one. Don’t forget to also consider the neckline of the sweater.
  • It’s worth investing in a high-quality sweater made from natural materials, such as cotton or cashmere, that will last longer and keep you warm and comfortable throughout the season.

2. Dress it up or down

Sweaters are versatile clothing items that can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion. For a comfortable, dressed down yet stylish look, pair your sweater with your favourite pair of skinny jeans and sneakers. You can also wear a pair of joggers or leggings for a more relaxed look. To dress up your sweater, try pairing it with a skirt or maxi dress and boots. This look is perfect for dinner dates or a night out with friends. Wearing a statement necklace or earrings will also add a touch of glam to your outfit.

3. Accessorize to stand out

Now, let’s talk about some fun ways to accessorize your sweater with jewellery, scarves, or layering.

Jewellery can make your outfit look both fun and sophisticated. When styling, it’s essential to think about the neckline of your sweater. For example, if you’re wearing a turtleneck sweater, you might opt for a necklace that hangs above the neckline. But if you’re wearing a V-neck sweater like this one from REPEAT cashmere, you might want to pick a necklace that sits on your collarbone.

A scarf is an accessory that fits any outfit and can pull your look together. If you find that your fits often lack that “something special,” we recommend investing in a few .

Layering is also a great way to accessorize. For example, layering two sweaters together or wearing your favourite button-down underneath a crewneck sweater.

4. Follow the trends

Sweater season is the perfect time to experiment with different colours, textures, styles, and sleeves. Whether you prefer oversized silhouettes or statement sleeves, there’s a trend for everyone this season. We’ll break it down below:
