The Cozy Sweaters That’ll Get You Through Party Season

Getting dressed for a cocktail party when it’s puffer-jacket weather can be tricky. Tights help. Or a cozy faux fur coat. And you know how we love a blanket scarf. When the accessories just aren’t cutting it, there’s another winter essential that always saves the day: the going-out sweater. Part cozy layer, part sexy top, this one-and-done piece keeps you warm without killing the festive vibe. Bodycon fits will show off your curves; while strategic cutouts, peek-a-boo hems, and lace-up details allow you to conceal and reveal according to your mood and preferences.womens-sweaters

The best part: styling these do-it-all knits couldn’t be easier. Slim-cut jeans and black boots are a no-brainer if you’re headed to a house party, casual restaurant or bar. Ankle boots always work but if your locale is extra cold, over-the-knee boots will add even more warmth—not to mention turn a few heads. If your plans for the night are a bit fancier—like a cocktail party or work event—wear your going-out sweater with a slim pant or pencil skirt and stiletto heels for a more glamorous look. Add even more oomph with a bold lip color and a pair of statement earrings.
