Belt it up

The easiest and the most hassle-free way to elevate your knitwear outfit is by cinching a belt over the top of your sweater or cardigan.

While oversized sweaters give the outfit a more casual and cool appearance, if you are aiming to make it appear more defined, belting it up would certainly make for an excellent choice. Aside from your jeans, you can also do it with your skirts and dresses as well by throwing a chunky knit on the top and cinching it in with a stylish belt.

Wear your cardigan backward

If you are looking to elevate the appearance of your basic cardigan, the easiest way to pull it off stylishly is by wearing it backward.

This little change would make such a huge difference to your ensemble whilst giving your outfit a needed boost. You can also find some pieces that are specifically designed to bring some attention to the back.

Pick pieces with subtle detailing or embellishment
