It's the perfect time of year to bring all of your knits out of the closet and style them! I have a few suggestions here on ways to style a variety of outfits with your knit pieces. I love how knits can add extra texture to a look and are also a great way to stay warm and cozy. Be sure to try the following tips out!

I'm absolutely loving layering lately! It's the perfect way to extend the wear of lighter pieces into colder weather. Here I've styled a cute summery dress overtop of a knit sweater in a matching orange shade. Layering is a great way to style for the fall and pre winter time of year. Pair your look with a few simple accessories so that the layers make a statement.

I actually crocheted this pink tube top myself and already had pants that matched perfectly! I would add a coat or a long sleeved top overtop to make this look seasonly appropriate. A blazer would also be a great way to bring the look together. This adds some nice texture to the outfit and was really easy to make. Check out this video for a simple pattern!

In my final knit style suggestion, I paired this orange sweater with a mini skirt and knee high boots. I would also add a pair of tights on a chillier day. Tuck your sweater into the skirt to define your waistline or tuck it up into a crop top underneath to temporarily crop it. Finally, add a crossbody bag to finish off the look. You could also add a belt to the waistline of the skirt for extra detail.

These tips can be used to style pieces you already own or you can shop similar products to what I've used using the links in the text.
