Are you feeling the mid-semester outfit slump? Already bored of your new fall clothes? We know the feeling - and we've got your solution. Refinery29’s landing page for street-style app WEAR on Refinery29.com is your go-to source for fashion inspo this fall.

The page is fantastic because it allows you to click on any look and find the exact source of each item. Additionally, all the looks are real life-wearable - no over-the-top editorial looks here.

While there are tons of hot trends on the page, we're particularly loving the #R29SweaterWeather section. Here are six knitwear styling tips we picked up there:

1. Play with proportion.

As WEAR user Prettylittlefawn demonstrates, a super-slouchy sweater looks fab with fitted skinnies and a big hat. These three pieces, though simple, look crazy luxe when combined.

2. Belt it.

Belt it

Give shape to a baggy, oversized cardigan by cinching it in at the waist. Here, Sheerstomping uses her cardi's built-in tie, but any belt will work. (Bonus points for double sweater layering!)

3. Add edge with monochrome styling.

Knitwear usually leans more toward "cozy-cute" than edgy, but this look proves it's all down to the styling. Rock head-to-toe black for a badass take on your fave fall sweater. (Leather gloves optional.)

4. Try a sweater coat.

Why limit yourself to traditional knitwear shapes? A coat-shaped sweater like Styleinfurno's is cool and unexpected. You're sure to stand out on campus.

5. Short sweater dress + long jacket = win.

Pair a short sweater dress and a longer jacket

This look is the perfect mix of sultry and cool. It's super simple, too: Pick up a knit minidress, then add a long coat and boots. Done.

6. Rock a textured pullover and shorts.

Embrace what's left of fall's warm weather by mixing your favorite summer cutoffs with a lightweight knit like Shaunajacobs does. Perfection!
