Statement sweaters can be such a fun item but sometimes such a scary thought to many people. Most are afraid of wearing them because they are bold, too recognizable and worried about how to style them. For me, it’s one of my absolute favorite fall trends. I absolutely love playing with layers, textures and different materials to make it my own. Not only that but you can really style a statement sweater for any occasion and/or weather condition (even season)! For example, some of you may think that a sweater is only for cold weather conditions but hey, I live in Southern California and statement sweaters make it into my wardrobe selection all too often. It’s honestly all about having a bit of creativity and pairing it with the right pieces and making it work for YOU.
Today is all about how to wear a statement sweater 3 ways with some of my Tommy Hilfiger statement sweaters. Hopefully you all find a little inspiration to incorporate into your everyday style as well!
Gone are the days of minimalism and especially if you live in colder climates, it’s time to layer up. There’s no reason hy you shouldn’t want to pile on the scarves/collared shirts and accessories with your sweaters. So use a little creativity and instead of just wearing that sweater with jeans it’s time to think outside the box a bit.
For a professional polish, my first look pairs this white pair of culottes with this amazing american flag sweater that I’m loving. To jazz it up a bit, I added a striped button down underneath the sweater so that the collar peeks through and made sure my hair was loosely pulled back to ensure the details were visible.
For a weekend look that wins, one of my favorite outfits pairs the classic Varsity “H” sweater with this must have denim a-line skirt. My favorite part of the whole look is the added tattoo print scarf that I feel gives it a very “Hampton-esque” quality that I love. Adding an a simple accessory like a scarf to a statement sweater can instantly upgrade it with little to no effort and give the look something you may not have expected. Also, try not to be to matchy-matchy. I chose this olive colored crossbody bag and because it didn’t blend too much with the outfit but also didn’t clash as well.
My last look is the wildcard. When you want to throw on a pair of shorts and call it a day, look no further. You can pair your favorite statement sweater with a pair of wool trouser shorts (which are great for the fall/winter months) and layer it with an awesome moto jacket. It gives the look a very laid back vibe while still looking put together and polished. Also, can we talk about the classic penny loafer?! I’m obsessed and they are comfortable as ever! Pair with a shoe like this to achieve the “effortless” look we all strive for.
As you all can see, I love a good statement sweater and there are so many fun ways to style them and make it your own. It just takes a little creativity and thinking outside the box. Always remember to play with prints and don’t be afraid to stand out a bit — in fact, that’s what I love most about it. Be you and make your own trends!
