A sweater is just a sweater . . . until it isn't. Just as women have gotten creative by swinging their waist bags over the shoulders, tying a jumper across the chest is the new go-to move. Fashion girls like to construct a look that's multidimensional, slightly asymmetrical, and maybe just a bit off. That's why everyone on the street at Fashion Week picked up on this hack, which we've mastered here at POPSUGAR (see Fashion Director Hannah McKinley above). It's started to trend like bucket hats or flip-flops — only this is a style you don't have to buy into in order to pull off.

You can employ the trick in the name of mixing prints. Just find a sweater that matches some of the same shades in your dress or skirt, then knot the ends of the sleeves at the front and decide whether you feel most comfortable letting the fabric lay over your left or right shoulder. Ahead, we're showing you all the sweater connoisseurs we've spotted recently, then suggesting a few practical options that are just perfect for the task at hand. And hey, if you get cold, you've got an extra layering piece. Pretty functional, eh?
