A classic sweater deserves a place in everyone’s wardrobe all the time, but especially in fall. It is on my classic capsule list after all! Whether worn by itself or as a layering piece, it’s an item that you’ll wear over and over again. In this post, you’re going to get ideas for 4 chic sweater outfits as well as where you can shop to get affordable quality pieces!
One pillar that you already know this blog stands on is classic fashion, shopping less, and buying quality when you can. Okay, so that was multiple pillars! 😉
When it comes to the quality aspect it’s easy to get lost thinking you can only have quality if you purchase designer. Though I love to daydream about designer brands myself, it’s very unlikely that I would purchase something designer that’s not second hand.
Why? The price. A lot of people say that you are paying for quality and while that is somewhat true, you are also paying for the brand name and perceived status that comes with owning a designer piece. That doesn’t sit super well with me knowing that I’m overpaying significantly on an item where I could get the similar quality for much less.
100% cashmere is 100% cashmere. So why is it $100 at some quality stores and $500 at designer shops?
What if you could get the same quality of pieces that you would get if you were shopping at Celine, Prada, and Armani, but without the brand markup?
Can you buy the quality without having to buy the brand?
Italic is truly a one of a kind membership where you can shop beautiful, high-quality pieces at realistic prices. You can shop items that are made in the same factories as Max Mara, Armani, and Celine, but at cost. Meaning, you don’t have to pay for any high-end branding. Just the quality.
Take a look at my sweater in this post that’s from Italic. It’s 100% cashmere, cozy soft, and beautiful. It’s a creamy color (though dark undergarments will show through) and only $65! It definitely feels and looks luxurious and it’s one of those items that will become a staple in your wardrobe.

4 Chic Sweater Outfits
1. Sweater under a dress
Wearing your sweater under a dress is a great way to not only add some style to your look but also add longevity to your spring and summer dresses by being able to wear them through the fall/winter season. Change out the footwear based on the weather that day- it’s a super versatile look!
2. Sweater + jeans + blazer
This outfit combo is your classic go-to! Try crop flares instead of skinny jeans for something a little different. Loafers add a touch of sophisticated chic and a blazer is perfect for topping over your sweater for that classy extra layer.
3. Sweater tucked into a skirt
This look is a tad Little House on the Praire and a bit modest chic haha. Though it would be great for the chilly days when you don’t want an exposed neck or bare ankles. This look is pretty well covered and it really doesn’t need any more layers!
4. Sweater over a slip dress
You can easily turn your dresses into skirts by wearing a sweater on top. It’s an easy way to layer and it looks chic!
All of these sweater outfits look different from each other and yet all have the same sweater. That’s the power of layering and creative styling!
