How to wear an off the shoulder knit sweater

Among all types of off shoulder tops, my favorite has to be the knitted off shoulder sweater. I think there must be some magical chemistry between the skin and the rope that makes the shoulders and collarbones look extra sexy. Another thing must be that strapless sweaters are often worn in autumn and winter when not many people show a lot of skin, which makes the sexy look particularly rare and attractive. Now let me share some of my favorite outfit ideas and hopefully you will try some of them.

I’ll start with an outfit idea that you don’t see often, but it looks very nice and attractive. It is indeed good for spring and autumn. Pair a gray cable sweater with a white skort. I’m sure this outfit can make you stand out from the crowd especially if you have nice long legs.

For a pure and innocent look, you can wear a cream colored knit sweater with a matching skirt. I would say this is a gorgeous outfit to wear to work unless your workplace dress code doesn’t allow you to dress sexy. If you want to wear a jacket, you can combine the outfit with a black leather jacket.

Instead of the comfy sweater dress featured in the previous outfit idea, here’s one with a slim gray sweater dress.

Instead of looking pretty and approachable in a comfy dress, this slim-fit sweater dress looks more feminine and mature. Pair the dress with knee high fleece boots to complete this outfit.

This is a great example of the off the shoulder sweater overlay. Just wear a white sweater and a tube top. Show off one shoulder for the asymmetric, stylish look. Combine the outfit perfectly with jeans. This outfit also looks great when you want to show less skin by replacing the tube top with a black vest top.

This gorgeous outfit features a tiffany blue batwing sleeve sweater and black button down mini skirt. This is easily my favorite outfit idea on the list.
