OUTFIT IDEAS — 5 Standout Knits to Wear With Your Most Reliable Staples

Fall’s around the corner, and with that comes turning leaves, cozy blankets, cider, and sweaters. The latter is no doubt a solid part of every cool-weather wardrobe, but how can we keep our them from feeling stale and overdone? Putting a high fashion spin on that knit you just picked up from H&M is not only fashion forward but also totally doable. After all, they’re versatile, able to be worn with miniskirts, maxi skirts, jeans, trousers and shorts, and they can be styled uniquely with each pairing. Don’t believe us?! Then keep reading because we’ve taken five unique knits and five wardrobe staples to create on-trend looks that will have you standing out while everyone else is trying to catch up.

» Sweater + Long Skirt: This combo is killer for a relaxed and comfy vibe.Take a roomy sweater and pair it with a long, flowy skirt to achieve pure coziness and effortless glamour.

THE SHOPPER: Detailed Knit Sweater, $16 at Zara. Malene Birger Severa Pleated Silk Crepe De Chine Maxi Skirt, $665 at Net-A-Porter. Winter Moss Nubuck Arizona, $120 at Birkenstock.

» Sweater + Shorts: Late summer and early fall are the ultimate in transitional periods. You might be outside for bonfires, picnics, concerts or more, and that time from afternoon to evening when the sunsets can grow from incredibly humid to chilly. For those times, don’t write off the chic oversized sweater paired with some shorts. It’s the best of both worlds in one stylish package.

THE SHOPPER: Ultimate Chunky Sweater in Nep, $53 at ASOS. Guess Tile Pattern Sequin Shorts, $80 at Bloomingdale’s. French Connection Giovanna, $125 at Piperlime.

» Sweater + Trousers: Choosing a classic pair of trousers to pair with an overly fuzzy sweater is the perfect way to sneak some coziness into the office. We have a soft spot for fluffy fabrics and think they can look rather high fashion when paired with the right pieces.

THE SHOPPER: Knitted Fluffy Long Jumper, $80 at Topshop. Pleated Crepe Pant, $118 at J.Crew. Audrey Brooke Hylda Textured Leather Pump, $60 at DSW.

» Sweater + Denim: For days when getting dressed up is a painful thought, bring out the ripped denim for a casual beachy fall vibe. Something about a perfectly knitted sweater layered with worn and destroyed denim gives the look the ultimate all-American vibe.

THE SHOPPER: Wide-cut Wool-blend Sweater, $60 at H&M. 7 For All Mankind Josefina Super Light Destroyed Cuffed Jeans, $225 at Neiman Marcus. Verna Woven Sneaker, $395 at Michael Kors.

» Sweater + Short Skirt: For a dressed up and flirty take on transitional sweater looks, pair yours with a short skirt instead of more casual shorts. And on date nights, you’ll also show some skin without feeling too revealing.

THE SHOPPER: Vince Chevron Knit Crewneck Sweater, $230 at Nordstrom. Ice Queen Skirt, $50 at Nasty Gal. Nydewet Heels, $35 at Aldo.
