5 ways to style a fisherman sweater

Now is the time to start looking for the perfect fisherman sweater to take you through damp days of fall. Cozy and versatile, the fisherman sweater is an ideal companion to a stylish wardrobe. Fisherman sweaters may hail from men who made their living hauling fish from sea but you do not have to look as if you just stepped off the docks. The following stylish outfits will make you crave a classic fisherman sweater.

5 ways to style a fisherman sweater

Neutralize: If simplicity is your style, then pair an off-white fisherman sweater with shades of tan and white.

A pair of white jeans adds a surprising freshness to the style. Add a brown leather belt, simple brown wedges and a distressed leather backpack for a calming look. Substitute khakis if white does not work for you. These skinny Jag Jeans with a hint of shimmer are a nice companion to the chunky knit.

Camouflage: You can effectively combine trends when you pair a fisherman sweater like this sleeveless Hazel turtleneck with camouflage pants. Accessorize with gold to add a feminine touch to this combo. The result is a high-fashion style that fits right into your daily life.

Mini magic: A thick sweater calls for showing a little leg. Pair a fisherman sweater with a season appropriate L.L. Bean corduroy mini skirt. Add tights and oxford wedges for a collegiate look that works.

Skinny balance: Balance is a well-known fashion rule. If you are going to wear a baggy top, then be sure your bottom half is sleek in order to balance out your overall look. Dark wash skinny jeans are a no-fail choice when slipping into a bulky sweater.

Leather: If you want to style your fisherman sweater in an unexpected way, pair it with faux leather pants like these stretchy leather pants by Michael Kors and pointy black pumps. The incongruity of the masculine sweater and the sexy sleek leather and heels create a stylish evening look that is cozy and comfortable.
