Getting The Most From Your Winter Basics: The Sweater

You may remember my post titled Your Autumn/Winter Wardrobe on a Budget well, as an extension of that, I'm going to be running a short series on getting the most from your basic winter wardrobe staples. Here's part one!

A cosy sweater is an absolute essential for a chilly winter, although, it's easy to get bored when you can't afford one in every style and every colour. What about using your imagination to get just that little bit more mileage out of only one? I've got a few ideas...

Tuck your sweater into a high-waisted skirt or pair of trousers for a classy look.

Product Information

Wear over a mans white shirt. If your sweater is fitted or baggy this can look really great.

Be fun and flirty by wearing your sweater with colourful braces.

Product Information

Add your favourite broaches or badges to personalise your sweater.

Couple with a waist-belt and fantastic shoes for a slick, up to date look.

Product Information

Chop the sleeves off an old sweater for a granddad-chic body warmer.

Layer with a long waistcoat and scarf for a cosy, casual look.

Product Information

There are a tonne of ways to customise an old sweater. Try adding cute buttons or a lace or pearl trim.

What would you do to lively up a plain sweater?

I don't wear sweaters at all! Is that strange? I live in cardigans instead, although I would quite like a snuggly one.

Cardigans are a great sweater alternative, you can throw them over anything. So no, you're not strange Helen! I'm with you!

Great comment ♥
