good morning, my darlings! today, i’m talking about about one of my favorite fall staples – the classic cozy sweater. i love the versatility of such a simple piece, and i always have a few sweaters on rotation for each season. the fun really happens once autumn hits; layering is essential for warmth, and accessorizing is a must for style purposes!

there are so many ways to wear a classic knit sweater (i love this one from uniqlo, but you can find something similar almost anywhere). continue reading for some tips to looking polished, while staying toasty.
i would recommend a light-weight sweater for the office (i.e. cashmere, a light cable knit, etc). try to stay away from a chunky knit; the volume and texture can come off as too casual in a corporate setting. you can either wear the sweater on its own, or layer with a crisp white collared shirt underneath. complete the look with a long, delicate pendant necklace.
ease into the “canadian tuxedo” trend: wear your sweater over a light-wash denim shirt, while rocking a dark-wash denim skinny jean. let the tails hang out below the hem of the sweater and pop the collar. i like to pull up my sweater sleeves and show off the cuff if at all possible. you can wear this look with flats, heels or a cute pair of booties. on a cooler day, throw on a scarf! i love accessorizing with scarves. one simple piece can pull the colours in your outfit together in a no-fuss way.
time to have fun with this look. first, pull out a plaid or patterned collared shirt and layer under your knit sweater. rock this look with some leather leggings, a skinny jean, or a form-fitting skirt. be creative! next, accessorize. wearing a statement necklace instantly dresses up your outfit. last but not least, throw on a pair of your sexiest heels. voilà! you’re ready for a night on the town.
