Chic sweaters are cozy and comfortable pieces you may resort to for a sophisticated and laidback look. There are lightweight sweaters, knitted sweaters, and even silk sweaters that can make you look chic without giving any bulk to your looks. Be inspired by a California fashion blogger Annabelle Fleur for her very feminine looks wearing chic sweater on her street style and have a sneak peek on her blog Viva Luxury to see her stylish street looks always looking put together while keeping a bit of edge in her style.
Chic sweaters should have a great fit on your body and are also in fine fabrics that can be in fluid or lightweight feel. Choose a wider neckline if you have a larger bust or shorter neck, and opt for turtleneck and boat neck styles if you have a longer neck. For a casual chic outfit, wear your denim jeans with your sweater to create an elegantly relaxed look. Also, it’s an interesting hybrid of dressy and casual style and is as comfy as can be in a fashionably fluid or oversized fit. Silk sweaters typically provide a soft, breezy, and luxurious integrity which creates a flattering effect to whatever body type.
For a sophisticated vibe, you may think of pairing your chic sweaters with dressy trousers like Annabelle did. It’s one way to refresh your career wear, giving regular shirts and blouses a break. Printed skinny pants, white skinny jeans, and even chiffon harem pants can be your great choices. Like her, you may even think layering your chic sweater with a crisp button-down shirt to revamp your office outfit. A roomy fit in a soft fabric is a good recipe for comfort as there’s no need to fully tuck your top into bottoms. Also, the boxy fit around the midriff of your sweater is camouflaging if you have a muffin top, yet the welt on the waist and tapered sleeves provide ample structure.
Channel an edgy and tough girl looks with your outfit by pairing your chic sweater with a leather skirt or a pair of leather trousers like Annabelle did. Just choose your fit and size down if your regular size is too boxy, or size up if you prefer lots of slouch. Thigh-high boots and ankle boots are edgy enough to complement your outfit, but you may still go for metallic shoes, oxfords, brogues, and loafers to make them took edgier and trendier.
Chic sweaters when paired with skirts create a preppy and cool looks perfect for afternoon walks in the city. Like Annabelle, you may think of layering your sweater over your button down shirt left untucked and pair it with a lace miniskirt. Also, pleated skirts look preppy and feminine when worn with chic sweaters in classic colors and prints. Indeed, chic sweaters are great staples to go for when you’re aiming for a sophisticated yet cool vibe on your street looks.
