While the daylight hours are short, these winter days sure seem long. The periods of cold, dreary weather are only interrupted by moments of mixed precipitation and the occasional perfect snowflake. What better way to stay warm and fashionable this season than with a long sweater or cardigan?
Duster jackets were all the rage this summer and fall. Now it’s time for its warmer cousin to have a moment in the spotlight. See how some of our favorite Fashionistas are rocking their long sweaters this winter.
1. It’s A Cinch: Avoid the bulk but keep the warmth by cinching your sweater at the waist with a belt.
2. Layer It: Layer your favorite long sleeve T-shirt or button-down under the sweater. Especially for those sweaters with shorter sleeves, the contrast adds some additional interest to your look.
3. Go Nude: Make a black dress more casual or elevate a pair of jeans with a long, tan sweater. The color resembles that of a classic trench—making it a great alternative for this garment.
4. Play With Pattern: From plaid to tartan to brocade, traditionally winter prints are instantly reinvented when worn on a long sweater. Just keep the rest of your look more basic to allow your sweater to shine.
