For a casual cool style, you may think of jeans, cargo pants, cut off shorts, and skinny trousers to wear with your pullovers. There are roomy pullovers with welts that are the best ones to match with fitted bottoms to balance the slouchy integrity of your top. Boyfriend jeans may work with your pullovers, but be sure to roll your hems to keep your outfit look polished and neat. Turtlenecks are great to give you enough insulation in the chilly season, but round necklines are best for women with short necks.

To add some edgy vibe to your cozy pullovers, wear them with leather skirts, trousers, shorts and polish your outfit with edgy footwear like oxfords, loafers, and brogues. If you’re not a fan of borrowed-from-boys look, then simply go for a pair of edgy boots. Fashion blogger Annabelle Fleur opted for a leather style of pullover and paired it with a silk skirt and fringe boots making her looks unexpectedly edgy.

To add some colors to your style, wear your pullovers with brightly colored bottoms and accessories. Pull off the unexpected color combination like Blair Eadie did, by wearing a green pullover with her blue feminine skirt. Wearing your printed pullover with a pair of neon colored shorts complemented by brightly colored shoes and necklace can be stylish too. But, if you find it challenging to look for pairs that go well together, simply opt for pullovers with color blocked style and wear it with neutral bottoms making you look creative without exerting much effort.

Wearing structured tops with your pullover balances the integrity of your slouchy tops. Leather jacket, tailored blazers, structured coats and such can be great for bringing some polished look the unstructured silhouette. Semi-tucking a fine gauge baggy pullover, thereby shortening its length, works well as well as scrunching its sleeves to reveal forearm skin adds further structure. Also, wearing pullovers over your crisp button-down shirts can be fashionable too, as the collars and tails of your shirt create a great contrast with your slouchy top.

If you think pullovers are only for a casual street style, you’re wrong as you can now wear them sophisticatedly. Just opt for ones with chic, sleek, and lightweight styles that don’t look bulky and slouchy. Just choose a neckline of your choice. Then, choose a dressy skirt like a pencil skirt, peplum skirt, full skirt, as well as straight-leg pants, which adds more structure to the outfit and curve to your silhouette. Classic pumps and ankle strap pumps are fabulous options while heeled booties dress the look down even further. Finish off your outfit with a bag, sunglasses, and jewelry and you’re good to go.
