What Would Holley Wear: Our Four Favorite Sweater Styles

Besides keeping us warm, sweaters also complete an outfit. With long cardigans, statement sleeves, cable knits, and turtlenecks, let’s get started and talk about some of this season’s sweater trends!

Do you like to make a statement? Then sweaters with statement-sleeves are definitely the look for you. One of our Pinterest board picks shows a gray hooded sweater with bell sleeves paired with white jeans, a Louis Vuitton backpack, and brown lace-up Vans.  Style influencer, Jess Kirby, puts together a cute ensemble featuring a white sweater with pop-corn sleeves paired with crop jeans and a teddy bear coat.  

Bulky sweaters with balloon sleeves are so on-trend.  A Pinterest board favorite features one of these beauties styled with a Staud bucket bag and large pearl hoop earrings.  A super-sized gray sweater with balloon sleeves matched with gray jeans looks so comfy and perfect for a casual night out by the fire pit!  Did I mention my husband makes the best fires…ever?

Looking for a sweater outfit that makes a statement in a subtle, yet elegant way?  Then we think you will love a few of the all-black ensembles on our Pinterest board. A beautiful black sweater with balloon sleeves paired with black leather pants, Gucci belt, and a Chanel handbag is ultra-classy.  Do you like to give a cold shoulder to your fall and winter party style? If so, think about wearing a black off-the-shoulder sweater with black jeans to your next winter party….subtle and sexy!

True confession….my favorite sweater is a turtleneck.  If you are wanting a classy look, you can’t miss with this classic style.  I’m loving a camel turtleneck with a white border accompanied by a beautiful pair of gold earrings…it’s all in the details!  A fabulous city look on Pinterest shows an oversized camel turtleneck with a black leather skirt, leggings, and over-the-knee boots….so city-chic!

Cable sweaters are always in style, and today’s version is no exception.  A new twist for cable sweaters is wearing them tucked in a skirt or pants, with or without a belt.  My favorite Pinterest board pick shows a belted brown suede pencil skirt complemented by a tucked-in creamy cable knit sweater.  A great ensemble to duplicate would be a black pleated midi skirt paired with a cable sweater….we are loving the orange cable on our board!  For me, the ultimate Pinterest look shows a large chunky sweater half-tucked in leather pants and draped with a camel coat…a great way to show-off your sense of style!

One of this season’s trendiest sweaters is a long cardigan sweater.  To give it a preppy look, wear it over a pair of dark-wash jeans with a crisp white blouse and add a suede clutch.  A long cardigan paired with jeans or sweats is so comfy. Did I mention we are loving all the gray cardigans featured on our Pinterest board?  Just add jeans, a t-shirt and a pair of comfy kicks!

So, here’s the plan….grab a sweater, and meet me in my back yard for an amazing wood burning fire!  Don’t you just love sweater-weather?
