We have a rare chill in the air today so I wanted to talk about sweaters, specifically men’s sweaters. I feel like this is one of those things that most men stay away from but when done right, it looks extremely stylish and can really amp up a man’s winter wardrobe.
All three of the above options are a definite yes in my book! The key to pulling off a stylist men’s sweater is fit though. You don’t want to go too over-sized or you might as well just throw on a big hoodie and call it a day. If you are going for a stylish upgrade, it has to fit well!
The things I do not like in this look is the overboard silly patterns. The example with the fox and tree stripe pattern is a definite NO in my book. Woodland animals should not be on a men’s sweater. The only exception to this is if you are attending an ugly Christmas sweater party! You should stick with classic patterns such as the example in the top three photos.
Another important thing to remember is this look is that the pants you pair with your sweater matter. If you are going with slacks that is fairly easy to do but if you choose jeans for a more casual look, you want the right jean. This does depend on the sweater though so there is no overall rule. Just make sure if you choose a lighter sweater color that you may want to go with a dark jean and vice versa. You can see in the examples at the top that the cream sweater is with a darker fade denim but the one with the pattern that has a dark base is paired with a slightly lighter jean.
Men, what are your favorite sweater looks? Or do hate them? Let me know!
