How to Style a Black Sweater This Holiday Season


Ways to Style a Black Sweater


Everyone has a black sweater in their closet. In this post, I’m sharing three holiday outfits with ways to style a black sweater for when you don’t know what to wear. For me, black sweaters are a must-have for the holiday and winter seasons. They are comfy and so effortless to style and turn into a fun outfit! Although some people may view the holiday season as stressful, having a cute outfit that makes you feel confident is just the start of getting into the holiday spirit!

The best thing about a black sweater is that you can style it with everything! Since black is a neutral shade, the accessories you customize your look with can be any color and will not clash with the sweater! The look above is sure to ‘wow’ anyone at this year’s holiday outing! I kept my accessories simple with a statement necklace and gold earrings.


Outfit #1 – Casual Holiday Look

Everything about this look is so fun and fashionable. After picking out my cozy Black Sweater, I then picked out the cutest, colorful scarf, which I think is a necessity for this winter. Not only does it keep me super warm, but it’s absolutely adorable and vibrant! Another winter necessity is this Knit Beanie. Although a little more expensive than most, Lululemon beanies are definitely worth the purchase, especially this time of year. The High-Waisted Pants I am wearing are from Express and are on sale for just $40! To accent the scarf, I added more pops of color with the addition of these stylish Trekker Boots. These boots are stylish and add a fun vibe to this outfit. This look is one of my absolute favorites for the holiday season!


Outfit #2 – Dressy Holiday Outfit

I absolutely love this look. I think it can be worn so diversely for a holiday party this year or any winter night out. These Black Pumps from ALLY Shoes are super chic and are also versatile. You automatically get $40 off your first pair of heels when you purchase them using code JILL40. What’s better than that?! I love how this Metallic Pleated Skirt and Black Pullover Sweater look together. It is so cute and even perfect for a New Year’s Eve party!


Outfit #3 – Leather Skirt Outfit

This skirt and scarf combination is to die for! I am in love with this Faux Leather Skirt from LOFT, which is 40% off right now! The colors are perfect for the season, and the skirt is flattering on any body type. The scarf creates the perfect color touch to the outfit, adding some fun. One of my favorite winter closet staples is long black boots like this pair. These not only go with everything, but they are so comfortable and chic. These outfit pieces are must-haves for the upcoming holiday season!
