Hi, I'm Tina Gill with Worthwhile Style, and today I'm going to give you a few tips on how to layer with your sweaters. So the first thing I've done here is taken this great oversized super comfy sweater and paired it with this nice delicate fabric T-shirt. It's really nice because it adds just a little bit of texture in detail here but it's not overwhelming with the pattern of the sweater. The next thing I did was add this great belt here at the waist. When you're belting your wardrobe what you want to remember is put it at the smallest part of your waist. What happens there is that the eye is drawn here, the rest of the fabric floats away from the body. So it's a great way to camouflage your tummy if that's one of your trouble areas. Something else that works with this outfit is that I did create a lot of volume up here but I paired it with a skinny jean and the reason I did that is if you have a lot of volume here you don't want a lot of volume at the bottom. Volume plus volume will make you appear bigger than you actually are. So if you have a lot going on up here, keep it simple down here. So this is a great way to show off and layer a sweater, just by adding a little texture, a little interest, a little detail. Another option that's probably great for the office is to have like a little V neck type sweater. It's kind of a cardigan but I would wear it more closed. What I did here was I popped a little camisole underneath it that has just a little subtle print to it. It adds this little lace detail here at the top which adds just a little bit of femininity and it's a nice compliment to a sweater like this that's just simple and black. You can pretty much wear anything underneath this and it's going to go with everything. Another option for layering is to layer under your sweater and over your sweater. So what I've done here is I've taken a nice little T-shirt here that's kind of a T-shirt sweater that has a little bit of detail to it and I popped it underneath this very classic fisherman style sweater. It's a great look all by itself but to add that extra layer of texture and detail I paired it with this great tweed sport coat. This is a great look for the office. This is great for running errands. You could wear this with dress slacks, you could wear this with skinny jeans and riding boots and it's going to take you anywhere you need to go. So remember, there's lots of ways to layer your sweater. Just do what you feel comfortable with and what makes you look stylish. I'm Tina Gill with Worthwhile Style. Thanks for watching.
