Ladies, get ready because the argyle sweater is obviously making a big comeback!
As a vintage timeless style cardigan in the 80s and 90s, some of you may think the argyle sweater may appear to be old-fashioned for nowadays’s style.
Well, that’s not true at all.
In recent years, the argyle sweater has gone through many changes and they are now truly versatile to style!
From classy lady to edgy school girl, it just gets the look right.
So ladies, if you wonder what to wear with an argyle sweater to look elegant yet chic, below are the 6 foolproof ideas! Enjoy!
1. WEAR A WHITE SHIRT UNDER ARGYLE SWEATER
Let’s start with the basics, shall we?
Regardless of the colors and designs of the argyle sweater, it always looks great when you wear a shirt underneath and show out the collar.
With the low-neck sweater, pair it with a shirt just instantly to make you look more decent and put together.
But of course, wearing doesn’t necessarily mean boring.
If you want a more womanly look, find the shirt with a nice lace collar to add a sense of softness and sweetness to the look.
I also saw some girls wear the bell sleeve shirt underneath the argyle vest for a one-of-a-kind silhouette. I think I will just copy this look next time!
2. PAIR THE ARGYLE SWEATER WITH A PLEATED DRESS
For a school-girl-inspired look, pairing the argyle sweater with the pleated dress is such a no-brainer.
Even though Argyle is a classic pattern, once it pairs with the pleated skirt, that just brings out the youthfulness of the look.
With a pair of simple white sneakers or combat boots, this is how you look wholesome and chic all at once!
To further enrich the look, let’s not forget hairstyle plays a major role as well.
Instead of laying all your hair down, do a delightful high bun or messy french braid to spruce up your look.
And if you want a more vintage look, wearing a pair of Mary Jane can always add a sense of retro vibe!
3. WEAR ARGYLE SWEATER WITH A LONG DRESS FOR A CLASSY LOOK
While the hot schoolgirl look is in the rage these days, let’s not forget the classic, timeless way to style an argyle sweater because this is the type of outfit that never goes out of style.
For a sophisticated look, a style argyle sweater with the midi dress is always favorable.
Pair a grey argyle cardigan with a satin dress just looks simple yet polished.
To dress up the look, you can always add a belt to accentuate your waist to highlight your curves.
After all, little details play a major role in creating the one and only style.
4. WEAR CROPPED ARGYLE SWEATER FOR AN EDGY LOOK
For an edgy look, consider cropped argyle sweater and flaunt your curves!
Whenever I open Pinterest and Instagram and search argyle sweater, nearly more than half of the photos are cropped sweater outfits.
This trend is all the rage these days.
For a sweetie look, you can pair the argyle sweater with a white shirt or even a long dress underneath for a feminine look.
I once saw a girl wear a cream silk knee dress underneath a beige cropped sweater that really helps to accentuate her high waist.
As for a bolder look, you can always pair the cropped argyle cardigan with the faux black leather legging.
To finish off the look, add a choker and a cool beret is always welcomed.
5. GO MONOCHROME WITH AN argyle cardigan
As a petite girl, my favorite way to wear is an argyle cardigan in monochrome style.
Not only this is such a time-saving hack, but it allows me to look taller and slimmer visually.
As the argyle cardigan is full of overlapping diamond patterns, that can slightly add some bulk to the upper body.
Pairing the overall outfit with similar shades of colors can tame the patterns and keep your look sleek and put together.
But of course, embracing tone-on-tone doesn’t mean you have to wear a similar hue for everything.
In a blue monochrome outfit, I will still wear a pair of white sneakers to add an extra pop of freshness to the look!
6. OPT FOR REFRESHING COLOURS AND DESIGNS
Last but not least, get creative with the argyle sweater colors and designs!
As a winter staple, it seems the argyle sweaters are always present in dark colors like dark brown and navy brown.
To freshen up the look, why don’t we choose pastel colors for a dreamy youthful look?
Just by changing the colors, the argyle sweater just looks way more stylish. Whether you pair it with mom jeans or a short skirt, it just looks equally flattering.
And if you look for a sense of high fashion in argyle, I will highly urge you to find a sweater with an asymmetric design (just like the photo above).
It can always add a sense of spontaneousness and effortlessness to your look and make it looks like a designer brand.
