5 Sweater Looks to Try: Great Daytime to Night-Time Outfits

Looking for an outfit that can easily transition from a daytime errand outfit to a night-time shindig ensemble? Why don’t you rummage in your closet and look for your trusty sweater? Yes, your sweater! It’s a lot more versatile than most of us give it credit for.

Sweaters are even being worn on the red carpet now. You just need to find the appropriate pieces to dress up your humble knitwear. Here’s how some celebrities wore their sweaters:

1. Alexa Chung wore a blue sweater over a wrap skirt

Fashion “it” girl Alexa Chung attended a private shopping event in a powder blue high-neck sweater that she wore over a printed wrap skirt.

The skirt is very modern, but the MTV presenter gave it a more timeless vibe by opting for classier accessories, such as her low-heeled pumps and mini handbag.

Now, we are usually not fans of tights worn with midi skirts, but this is actually one of the exceptions. The tights, along with the studded clutch and the pair of ankle boots, gave this look a more sophisticated vibe.

Why, just a couple of weeks ago, her errand outfit got under our radar because of its unapologetically effortless vibe. This is another hit. She wore a cropped sweater with a pair of the still-popular denim overalls.

The actress sticks to this formula nearly all the time, and we laud her for it. She definitely knows how to keep things comfortable.

You can’t go wrong with the sweater and denim pants combination. But like Reese, you can shake things up by wearing a trendy fedora hat and animal-printed flats.

A loose sweater is always great to have because there’s room for you to wear something under it. A collared shirt is always a great partner to loose sweaters for that cute preppy look.
