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:

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.

Jessica Alba was looking put-together and on-point at the City of Beverly Hills Centennial Party. The actress and entrepreneur wore the iconic Kenzo Tiger sweater with a high-waisted pencil skirt.
