Men’s sweaters are easy to pass while shopping, but there’s plenty of ways to incorporate the styles in your wardrobe. These 8 different ways to wear a men’s sweater as a dress, will boost your style while adding a new twist!
A solid men’s sweater with bare legs or with sheer tights, will create a glamorous fall look. You can wear tights with bling or other designs, to dress it up. Or, you can wear plain color tights.. The boots you choose can be utilitarian inspired combat boots, or equestrian inspired over-the-knee black or brown boots. This look can also work with chunky heel, platform, and printed boots.

2. Cardigan Over Cami
Men’s sweaters fit longer on ladies, allowing you to wear an oversized look with a cami. Pair a cardigan with jean shorts or leggings. You can wear it with skirts as well. Its best to keep it simple with a cami or t-shirt underneath. Button up cardigans are best for this look, with the option to wear opened slightly, or buttoned fully. Wear shorts underneath, if you want to wear buttoned first and unbuttoned later on.
Wear a sweater that is expanded in the collar, like a v-neck, to wear off-the-shoulder. If you know you’ll be doing a lot of movement, try wearing a cami underneath to keep secure. Accessorize with a shoulder carry bag or go with a small clutch, if you’re wearing it as a night look.
Shorts are easy to wear with a men’s sweater, because they have the cool casual look, but can still be dressed, with accessories. A men’s sweater with Kim K inspired biker shorts create an athleisure style look that can be worn with sneakers. You can also wear short chino shorts, if the vibe is a bit more preppy.
5. Over Button Up
Wearing a men’s sweater, over a button up, is a fresh look that is also professional allowing you to attend an event or kick-back. Usually a white, black or solid blue button up works best in contrast with both a printed or solid sweater, to accent without your outfit being too busy.

6. Over Long Tee
A long t-shirt will give you a look thats urban and chill. A sweater that is printed, over a black or white tee shirt or accented color shirt, can be worn with boots or sneakers. You can add a clean cut look by pairing your long tee and sweater with long socks and oxfords, for a prep-school inspired look.
Sneakers care easy to wear and can be worn in all weather. Pair your sweater with jeans and sneakers for a cozy casual look or wear them with shorts and sneakers to a chill festival. Classic sneaker silhouettes like the Jordan 1s pair well with mens sweaters, as well as the newer silhouettes like the Nike Reacts.
