Try These sweaters and Jean Outfits Now
When the weather turns cooler, many women find it challenging to dress warmly without sacrificing style. With this year’s sweater dressing trend, it’s easier than ever to look fashionable and stay cozy warm in your outfits. Here’s our street style-inspired guide to the stylish jeans and sweater outfits you can wear everywhere now and through the winter months, from running errands to chairing meetings at the office.
Embellished Sweater and Jeans
A special sweater makes it easy to pull together a traffic-stopping outfit with jeans in a snap. Here, an easy-to-wear jeans and sweater outfit looks completely fashion-forward, thanks to colorful fur detailing on the arms. Look for sweaters with special embellishments that can be pulled on with your go-to dark wash jeans, for a look that’s modern and cool.
Striped Turtleneck Sweater and Straight Leg Jeans
Channel a retro look in this schoolyard-inspired outfit that looks right on trend for fall and winter fashion. A cheerful, colorful striped sweater is the perfect choice to wear with dark wash, straight leg jeans. Tuck your sweater into the waist of your jeans – especially if they’re a high-rise style – for a more grown-up look. Ditto for adding a fabulous bag and shoes.
Layered Sweaters and High Waist Jeans
The layered look is huge for fall and winter fashion now. Create an attention-grabbing look that will keep cozy warm in the cooler months, by layering thin sweaters. Here, a V-neck sweater is layered over a higher necked top, so both layers are visible (which is key to this look). Both tops are belted into fall’s must-have high waist jeans, which helps to define your figure when you’re wearing layers.
Sweater Coat and Ripped Jeans
Wondering how to wear jeans to the office this fall and winter? Here’s a new outfit to try that picks up on the sweater dressing trend. A tailored black blazer and lightweight, colorful sweater instantly pull together an outfit in jeans for work. Add luxurious accessories, such as blingy rings, designer (or designer-look) sunglasses, and a fashionable leather bag, for a city-chic ensemble you can wear to run meetings (and errands after work) in style.
Patterned Sweater and High Waist Jeans
Here’s an easy cool-weather outfit that you can wear everywhere this fall, from shopping in the city to lunch with friends and picking up the kids from school. Pull-on a printed sweater in an open weave (wear it over a camisole if you’re self-conscious about showing skin). Pair with this year’s must-have, high-waisted straight-leg jeans. For extra style points, finish your look with a cute purse that picks up on one or more of the colors in your sweater.
White Sweater and White Jeans
Head-to-toe white dressing is a summer trend that can work surprisingly well into the fall and winter months. Pair your favorite white skinny jeans — not just for summer anymore — with a cozy white sweater, to create a fresh fall outfit that will turn heads. Need extra warmth? Add a basic long-sleeved white tee beneath your sweater for insulation. To accessorize this look for the cooler months, add a sturdy leather bag in a neutral tone.
Wear this look with chunky black ankle boots for casual sophistication, or keep things basic in plain white sneakers, as pictured here.
Pastel Sweater and Skinny Jeans
Summer may be over, but the pastel fashion trend continues to be imported into the fall and winter months. We love the sexy, feminine effect of matching a pretty, pale pink sweater with body-hugging skinny jeans. Wearing dark jeans with a light top is also a great way to look skinnier when you wear denim. Cut the sweetness by wearing this look with trendy ankle boots, or play up the womanly vibe with high-heeled black pumps for a date.
Clash Your Colors Over Classic Jeans
A classic, sophisticated pair of jeans, such as the dark wash trouser jeans pictured here, makes a great foundation for playing with your other wardrobe pieces. Create an eye-catching outfit this fall when you combine unexpected colors in your outfits, such as the rose-pink sweater and red purse pictured here. You could add another bright color in your shoes, or go with basic black pumps to ground your look — but this idea is a fun and easy way to express yourself this fall.
Poncho and Jeans
Poncho dressing returns as a trend this fall, with new styles in stores to suit your personal taste. Whether you prefer a solid color or a patterned poncho, this wear-over-everything sweater pairs perfectly with all your jeans this fall season. Dress up this easy daytime look by wearing it with black accessories and simple jewelry.
Grunge-Inspired Boyfriend Jeans Outfit
Grunge style continues to have an influence on the fall and winter fashion scene. From relaxed jeans to the must-have concert t-shirt, we’re feeling the 90s influence. Style a casual jeans and sweater look that works for the school and casual weekends, starting with comfortable boyfriend jeans. Add a graphic t-shirt and a boyfriend-style cardigan sweater. Then add a cozy wool scarf for warmth and a structured bag to carry all your must-haves.
A plaid shirt loosely around your waist as an accessory. Finish this easy outfit with menswear-inspired loafers, or plain white sneakers.
