With sweater weather in full effect, everyone could use a little inspiration to dress up your usual look. Personally, sweaters are my favorite part of fall. Which is why I am always looking for ways to spruce up my favorite fall looks. One of the most classic, yet understated looks is the sweater and button-up combo. Adding a collared shirt can add just the right amount of flare to any outfit. Not only that, but it can make you look more polished overall and like you actually spent time getting ready—perfect for those mornings where you got a little too friendly with the snooze button.

This Fashionisto’s look is perfect for running around to classes all day, as it is both comfortable and stylish. While the most popular way to rock the sweater button-up combo is with a solid white button-up, I love the way the checkers in this Fashionisto’s shirt complement the rest of his outfit. It is important to go with a crewneck sweater like this one, as it has the perfect neckline for layering. Whether you prefer to have a plain button-up, or go with a patterned option, it’s all up to you!

To complete his look, this Fashionista kept it simple. He went with khakis, desert boots and accessorized with a basic watch.

How To: Next time you’re debating new ways to dress up your favorite sweater, try layering it with a button-up for an effortlessly chic look. Also, if the weather is colder where you are, this look goes well with a nice pea coat!
