Class to Night Out: Graphic Sweater

Sweaters: 1, 2

Do you struggle with transforming your outfits from day to night? Don’t worry, CF is here to help turn that daily annoyance into a fun challenge. Class to Night Out focuses on one piece per week, and aims to help you take your look from study sessions in the library to dancing the night away.

Want to make a bold statement without sacrificing warmth this season? A graphic sweater could be the perfect addition to your wardrobe. These trendy sweaters are both fun and a little edgy, and this contrast makes them perfect for everything from the finishing layer of a chic outfit to the ultimate in cozy comfort.

This week, I’ll be showing you how to style a cat graphic sweater for both a day of classes and a night out. (Not a cat person? Try a wolf, skull, or even an abstract shape to get the same look!)

Graphic Sweater: Class

Create an ultra-trendy daytime look by pairing your graphic sweater with a pair of deep red skinny jeans – any color from oxblood to wine to maroon will keep you looking fresh and on-trend. Add elegant touches to create contrast between edgy and feminine – try ballet flats with bow detailing, a cameo necklace and simple pearl studs. Complete the look with a structured satchel to hold your notebooks and pens.

Graphic Sweater: Night Out

Sweaters of all kinds can be tricky to pull off at night, but a graphic sweater with just the right amount of bold color contrast can make an edgy statement that’s the perfect fit for an evening out. Plus, did I mention the warmth factor?

Try styling your graphic sweater with an extra glamorous piece on the bottom like a gold sequined skirt. Amp it up with a sparkling collar necklace and a thick black waist belt. Keep your accessories feminine and elegant to give the rest of your outfit the spotlight. Beige heels, a matching studded bag and ivory teardrop earrings work together to complete the look.

What do you think?

    I’m in love with the cat sweater, but the link tells me that it’s no longer available. :(((( It would be really nice if you posted links to things that we can actually buy.

    I realllly want the bicycle sweater. Also, I am obsessed with sequined skirts, so I love the second outfit.

    I agree with Kelly. I love the cat sweater and I’m kind of tired of items being shown that are no longer available to buy. This is not the first time this has happened.

    I don’t understand the belt in the second Outfit. I imagine that the shirt would be tucked in to this skirt

    @Kelly & Christine

    I’m so sorry the sweater sold out! I make these posts three or four days ahead of time and it was still in stock then. In my experience, Forever 21 usually re-stocks popular online items, or maybe you could find it in store.

    I love sweaters, and since I go to a school where it gets really cold in the winter I really need some new ones! I like the options you presented here!
