Hey guys! Happy Monday!
Alright, so I’ve done a few 3 Ways to Wear it now, and I hope you guys have been liking them as much as I do. I think it’s a great way to create some inspiration for re-wearing pieces. We can probably all agree that it’s no fun having a sole way to style a piece, because that means it’ll always look the same. And since most of us don’t particularly enjoy wearing the same thing every day, that means that piece won’t see light as much. Therefore I think an important tool to have is to know how to style an item different ways, and here comes my posts to give you ideas! So read on and keep an eye out for more of these to give you the tools to ensure every piece in your closet gets its rightful time in the light.
For this post, I chose the piece that has likely been the most purchased item in the last couple months: a sweater! And more specifically, an over-sized sweater. These are much desired for its coziness, however, they can be so bulky they become hard to style and so they were the perfect option for this post.
Scroll down to see how I styled mine!
Sweater dress with over-the-knee boots – Perfect for weekend brunch
In this first style, I’m wearing the sweater as a dress to create a look that’s romantic, feminine and just a little sexy. The over-the-knee boots are the perfect choice to pair with a sweater dress because 1) it’s getting too cold for bare legs, so these cover up most of your skin, 2) this combo is arguably the epitome of fall fashion and finally 3) when you see them together, there’s just no discussion to be made because it’s a fact that these two are a match made in heaven.
Since my sweater is cream, I had a range of options for colours, but I decided to stay simple with these grey beauties. They’re special because they lace up in the back which makes them just that much better. And to finish, I added this bag that was the perfect amount of colour that doesn’t scream too loud but added what was needed.

A little dressier & a little funkier – Perfect for a day outing with the girls
For the second outfit, I added some pants and heels to create a look that’s girly and fashion-forward. To create this style, choose a pair of pants that’s fun and can grab the attention. Once you have that, pick out a pair of girly shoes to match. Heels (especially pointy-toed) are a great option because they help make your legs look longer and therefore reduce the look of bulkiness that the sweater brings, leaving it at a happy cozy. Finish off the look with a cute bag! (Extra advice: pearls are all the rage this season, so feel free to use this as your excuse to rock it)

Totally casual – Perfect for a Saturday at the market
My final look is completely casual for an effortless comfortable result. I’ve brought out my favourite pair of jeans and just tucked in the sweater to give it more shape. My heels have been swapped out for a comfortable pair of loafers. Since I love to be extra, mine cheetah-print plain because an extra edge to the outfit. However, black or any type of flats would work fine as well. Add a cute cross-body bag, a dark lip and you’re ready to enjoy a beautiful fall day outside.
