Bright colors are not just for spring and summer, they can — and should — be worn into the fall and winter months, too. Want to stay warm in the fall and winter in a colorful way? Consider investing in a pink sweater.
Pink sweaters are trending for the fall and winter. They add a touch of femininity to your look while keeping you warm, and they’re a great way to stand out in a sea of neutral and dark colors.
There are many variations on the pink sweater in stores right now. You can find one in all colors on the pink spectrum, from fuchsia to dusty pink. You can try an oversized one or a cropped one. Yours can be short-sleeved, long-sleeved, or even sleeveless. The pink sweater can even have a hood or be in the form of a dress. There’s a pink sweater for every style.
Below, I’m sharing 8 ways to wear a pink sweater with some cute pink sweater outfits sure to get your inspiration going!
The 2018 Way
This pink sweater outfit includes some of the hottest trends of 2018, such as white boots, a mini bag, little cat eye sunglasses, and frayed jeans.
Start off with a dusty, warm pink sweater and frayed jeans. White kitten heel booties look great with this look. Keep your accessories neutral so the focus stays on the sweater. An O-ring belt, tiny cat-eye sunglasses. and a mini crossbody are all simple but trendy accessories. Now you have an Instagram-ready pink sweater outfit!
The ’80s are making a fashion resurgence for the Fall, especially the decade’s bright colors and bold attitude. This pink sweater outfit combines ’80s vibes with a touch of athleisure for a look that’s perfect for class.
Start off with a neon pink v-neck sweater and mom jeans, another ’80s trend that’s made a comeback. High-tops were popular shoes in the 80s and Vans can be found in college students’ wardrobes so these high tops are a perfect pick. The black-and-white color scheme on the shoes tones down the look.
’80s accessories are bold, bold, bold and while these bead and tassel statement earrings are trendy and quirky, they’re also great for an ’80s aesthetic. A neon green backpack carries all your essentials while adding in another pop of color.
Pink is the girliest color out there and a pink sweater is the perfect choice for a girly girl. Because of this, it’s a perfect piece for creating a feminine, romantic outfit like this one.
A pink floral embroidered sweater and a blue floral midi skirt form a girly outfit combo. The look gets even girlier with simple pastel ballet flats with bows. Rose gold flower earrings and a flower headband will do to finish the look (or choose one of these for a more toned-down feel).
Create an on-trend athleisure outfit by pairing a cropped pink hoodie sweater with mesh panel leggings. These white Nike sneakers are a bit of an investment, but they’re versatile, comfortable, and in style, plus they look great with almost any outfit. A floral water bottle adds a pop of pattern and encourages you to drink water throughout the day.
Simple for Class
This outfit is a take on one of our outfit formulas in the article What to Wear to a College Class. This version features a pale pink sweater and stretchy jeggings, a perfect combo to be used as a blank canvas. A gold disc necklace and nude ballet flats and are simple and girly. The cognac tote bag is oversized and versatile, making it ideal for carrying books, folders, and other essentials around campus.
Fall to Winter
The Fall to Winter transition obviously involves the cold, so here is a transitional outfit that incorporates a pink sweater. A sweater dress, a beret, a scarf, Chelsea boots, and tights can be worn in the Fall, but they can also be worn in the Winter. All of these items above will help keep you warm due to their fabrics and textures.
While this is an article about pink sweater outfits, I decided to include a sweater dress to mix things up. This soft knit sweater dress is a great way to stand out in a sea of dark colors this winter. (The version linked is the “tall” size, as the regular is sold out, however here is the link to the regular size in case Boohoo restocks soon.) A plaid scarf adds a pop of pattern and is ideal for keeping your neck super cozy. Cable sweater tights will keep your legs warm and help you transition into Winter. Finish off the look with leather Chelsea boots and a wool beret.
A pink sweater is a perfect opportunity to wear a Barbie-inspired fall outfit; Barbie is all about pink! Pair a hot pink sweater that screams Barbie with a lighter skirt for color contrast. The sweater above is a little pricey, but it’s classic and statement-making. If pink is your color, it’s worth the money. Add some sass to the look with over-the-knee boots and a pink top handle bag.
Add some glam to the look with crystal drop earrings, and finish with a Kate Spade scarf that practically screams retro Barbie.
This pink sweater outfit is perfect for any holiday party that you might attend. A high-neck pink ruffle sweater looks great with a scarlet a-line skirt. Polka dot tights will keep you warm in chilly temperatures.
Now it’s time for accessories. These heels are cute and comfortable, plus they boast a kitten style that makes them easy to walk in. A crystal statement necklace and a glitter envelope clutch will finish the look with some sparkle.
