7 Cheers For Sweater Weather!

The only thing that can get us through the particularly painful weeks of mid-Winter is fashion, of course — particularly, cozy sweaters ready to be styled a multitude of ways. In case you're also suffering from a case of the snowy-day blues and need some inspiration, we've gathered seven celebs putting their own spin on the knit staple.


Start off the workweek with a classic, sharp look that skips busy prints and bold colors. Reese Witherspoon [1]'s basic white sweater looked especially clean worn with a black skirt and accessories.


If a late night at the office has you desperately wishing you could just wear a sweatshirt into the office, then go for the next best thing: a warm crewneck sweater. While the piece is definitely weekend friendly, it can easily be dressed up for your 9-to-5 with the right shoes. In Jaime King's case, that meant a pair of embellished black flats.


Rose-covered or not, any sweater can be dressed up with a styling trick like the one Jessica Alba [2] employed. Layer it over a button-down done all the way to the top, making sure that the collar is pulled out and over the neckline of your knit. Add a statement necklace for a final bit of pizzazz, and you're ready for a dinner out with clients.


While Ashley Greene [3]'s easy look would've worked with a thin, solid-colored top, upon closer look, this one has something extra. The sleeves and hem were edged with a spot of tie-dye, turning the would-be preppy look into something with a dash of hippie.


Make your casual Friday playful with an animal-print sweater. The style's had a big moment this year [4], and they're a dime a dozen, making it easy to find whatever creature speaks to you. Hilary Duff [5]'s easy outfit made it known that she's an elephant girl.


An oversize, asymmetrical hemline like Lea Michele [6]'s might look sloppy in the workplace, but the weekend is a different story. There's something inherently relaxed about the shapeless piece, which is perfect for pairing with leggings or skinny jeans. And while it's ideal for lounging around at home, there's a sexiness to the way it slips off the shoulder that lets it work for drinks out, too.


In its old-school, Fair Isle iteration, the sweater seems made for running errands à la Elle Macpherson. She bundled up in Aspen, wearing hers over a plaid shirt with leggings and a furry trapper hat. Extra points if you match your sunglasses!
