Beat the cold in style
Wool sweaters are a great way to keep warm on cool days and a light sweater is great for even the slightest breeze - but it can be hard to tell when a sweater is just for casual wear and when it’s dressy enough to wear to the office. When paired with a professional collared blouse, V neck sweaters and fitted argyle sweaters are a great work-appropriate way to keep warm. (Just be sure to keep those baggy mens sweaters and zany Christmas sweaters at home!)
A turtleneck sweater paired with a tailored jacket is another classic sweater outfit with lasting impact. Womens sweaters are all about fit, so regardless of whether you’re looking for a simple sweater vest, a sweater coat or a preppy polo sweater, the most important thing is to make sure it fits your body. Not only will it look better, you’ll get more wear out of it.
After fit, it’s the fabric that makes womens sweater both stylish and comfortable. Cashmere sweaters are a classic, high-end way to spruce up your wardrobe, and they are an easy way to make any outfit pop – ordering online can also save you the high sticker prices many department stores offer, and with great return policies you don’t have to worry about getting a bad fit.
Keep in mind though, a sweater doesn’t always have to be fancy. Dressy sweaters are great for the office but there’s nothing wrong with comfy hooded sweaters in casual situations like going to the grocery store or just hanging out. You can add a touch of femininity and your own unique style with some fun fashion jewelry or unzip to show off a vibrant polo shirt – whatever your style, it will work in a sweater!

- Hoodies and sweats keep you looking great while also keeping things casual, not to mention comfortable! More about Hoodies
Hoodies and sweats keep you looking great while also keeping things casual, not to mention comfortable! Womens hoodies have become more and more popular over the past years, and are quickly becoming a fashion classic. Hooded zip sweatshirts are great street wear, while hooded pullover sweatshirts let you keep cozy over a camisole or t shirt.
Remember though, hoodies are rarely work appropriate. Keep them for off-time where rock hoodies and punk hoodies are the perfect way to set yourself apart from the crowd. Doesn’t matter your age or your style, band hoodies will always be cool. (Especially nirvana hoodies have with their nostalgic grunge appeal)!
If you’re a student, or you used to be, don’t get caught in sporting college hooded sweatshirts all the time! They’re a nice twist once in a while, but why not do your own thing with a custom hooded sweatshirt designed through an online company that speaks more about who you are as an individual? Look for something with a fun print for a look that really stands out. There are endless things that you can do with a hoodie, just pick your look and go with it!
- Forget Mr. Rogers! A womens cardigan is a great fashion choice for any occasion because the right cardigan can go with anything. More about Cardigans
Forget Mr. Rogers! A womens cardigan is a great fashion choice for any occasion because the right cardigan can go with anything. A wrap cardigan is a practical choice to wear over an evening dress at a formal event (style tip: look for something that sparkles!), while a cotton cardigan, zip-up style or a sweatshirt cardigan, can keep you warm over a T shirt without hiding your look.
Fit and fabric normally determine whether a cardigan sweater is dressy or best left for casual wear. For example, a cashmere cardigan is a great choice for a fancy evening out on the town while a fleece cardigan is better suited for casual or outdoor situations. Keep this in mind when you go to choose because a mismatched sweater can ruin your look in a hurry.
Picking out the right color for your cardigan is up to you, but we suggest keeping a black cardigan sweater on hand at all times because it goes with anything, and finding an airy white cardigan for summer nights. After that, it’s all about your style - a brown cardigan has an earthy appeal that shows you’re down to earth, while a surprising color like magenta or lime green will show off your fun side.

In fashion terms, sweatshirts get a bad rap! There are lots of ways you can dress up a sweatshirt and make it perfect for fun casual situations. Here are just a couple of great looks you can pull off with a sweatshirt!
Together, jeans and a sweatshirt make for an easy look that anybody can wear. This look works with anything from an old college sweatshirt, to a slightly dressier polo sweatshirt. If you want to get even more creative you can go with a custom sweatshirt, such as a personalized sweatshirt with bright colors and fun graphics – check online for companies that do this! It’s all about what you feel comfortable wearing.
If you’re worried about looking too dressed-down in a sweatshirt, don’t go for anything too baggy (like that old, comfy NFL sweatshirt). Choose something that fits and flatter it – pair a short sweatshirt with a contrasting long tank top or add a pair of cool sunglasses with a funky bracelet to a tight sweatshirt. Don’t take this look to work, but if you’re just hanging out with friends, you’ll look fun and fantastic!
