When spring comes around you know that there is going to be the dreaded question: “What do I wear the off-shoulder sweaters with?” Don’t fret because there are many outfit possibilities out there.
The off-shoulder sweater is a wonderful example of a versatile item that can be worn in all kinds of ways. It is elegant, yet comfortable; it looks professional, yet not too formal, as demonstrated by my previous outfit. It can also be worn in public without being too revealing. The off-shoulder sweater can be used to substitute a jacket for a more elegant look if you’re wearing a turtleneck and pants (I’m sold on this one). Lastly, it can be worn with high-heeled boots for a “Sexy in heels” type of look.
Here are a few ways to wear the off-shoulder sweater:
1) Wear it on top of either a dress or shirt dress. This will show your shoulders while looking professional in the context of work or at school; also, you can wear it in public without being too “revealing”. As far as accessories go, wear a bracelet, watch, or even decorative earrings.
2) If the sweater has a V-neck as I mentioned in the previous point (sleeves rolled up at your elbows), wear it with a low-cut bodysuit underneath. This is to show off your shape without actually revealing anything besides maybe an inch of skin.
3) Wear it with either jeans or tights and boots. I mentioned tights because I have a feeling that the original plan of wearing this off-shoulder sweater with leggings is not going to work well, especially when you are planning to wear an off-shoulder sweater dress. Be subtle and elegant, wear heels for a more sophisticated look.
4) Wear it with a long skirt. This look is super simple and classy and leaves room for your personality to shine in other areas of your outfit. You can go from business casual to classy in no time at all with an off-shoulder sweater.
You can unite all of the elements under the same sweater and create different looks with the off-shoulder sweater. Whether you’re wearing it on top of a dress, button-up shirt, turtleneck shirt or jeans fits this item well because it allows you to display your shoulders without being too revealing. The versatility of this item is just the tip of the iceberg because it gives you the chance to be more creative with your dressing. This sweater can be worn in a formal environment or even in public! It is comfortable, classy, and sexy.
There are endless opportunities for this item to be used not only as an accessory but also as a fashion statement. Just remember that it can be whatever you want it to be and anything goes! It is a very versatile item which means there are unlimited ways to wear it. There are no limits and it is all up to you. You can wear it with a low-cut shirt to reveal a few inches of your bare skin or wear it with an elegant skirt.
First, we have to ask ourselves if we want our shoulders on full display or only part of them. You can wear off-shoulder sweaters with a dress or shirt dress to show off your shoulders, but also show yourself in a professional and elegant way.
For the second look, we have to ask ourselves what we would look best in. For example, if you have a curvy figure many times you will look best in an off-shoulder sweater with fitted tights or if the sweater has a V-neck then wear it with either a bodysuit or fitted tights. If you have more of a straight figure then you can wear the off-shoulder sweater with jeans or pencil skirts. If you wear the sweater with a pencil skirt, then just don’t forget that it’s all about accessorizing.
For our next look, we have to ask ourselves if we want to go a little dressy or if we are feeling casual? If you want to go dressy I recommend your regular outfit and just add an off-shoulder sweater to it. If you are feeling more casual I recommend that you wear the off-shoulder sweater with a button up shirt and then style it how ever you want.
If we want to go a little dressy we can also wear an off-shoulder sweater with a long skirt and accessorize with your regular jewelry. It is all up to you, but one thing I can’t stress enough is that this versatile item is great for the summer because it shows of your shoulders but in a modest way.
We have to be careful when we wear an off-shoulder sweater with shorts, on account of the danger of a visible panty area. I’m not saying to only wear it with long skirts and buttoned-up shirts, but remember that it can look just as good with that. As far as accessories go, you have lots of options.
