Wardrobe Remix -One Trend, Three Ways: The Knit Sweater
Written by: Elizabeth McGuffin (@withwonderandwhimsy)
Grab that pumpkin spice latte and snuggle up because fall is finally here! With temperatures cooling off and winds picking up, it’s officially sweater season. Fall is a time of comfort-seeking. And just like we retreat to the kitchen for a steaming cup of cider, we also search our closets for cozy pieces like this season’s staple: the knit woolen sweater.
When it comes to sweaters, it’s easy to throw one on and rush out the door. But you can also play with tucking it in and adjusting the waistline for different silhouettes. Grab your favorite sweater and a variety of jeans, pants, and skirts. And spend some time styling different looks in front of the mirror. Do that little bit of front-loading at the start of fall, and you’ll have outfit options to last you through till spring.
This cozy Poppy Tunic Sweater is from brand Molly + Isadora, available exclusively through Dia&Co. The color blocking and side slits update this classic crewneck without sacrificing versatility.

Sweaters are made for easy, throw-on-and-go wear. But don’t forget to explore your other styling possibilities. To help you get started, we’ve provided you with three styling suggestions that take you from the office, to the weekend, to out on the town.
Look #1: At the Office
Pair your sweater with a pleated midi skirt for a smart office look. Wear your skirt at your waist, tuck in your sweater, and then pull a few inches back out to lay over your waistband for a blousy look.
Look #2: Out and About
For busy weekends and on-the-go wear, throw on your sweater with a pair of skinny jeans. To elevate the styling, pair with a long pendant necklace and knee boots.
Look #3: On the Town
Dress up your sweater by pairing it with a high-waisted skater skirt. Accessorize with a jeweled statement necklace, skinny belt, and sassy pumps for a pop of color.
