Trend of the Week: Statement Sweaters

If you’re looking for a fashionable gift or if you are looking to make a “statement” this holiday season yourself, look no further than the Statement Sweater.  Sweaters and even sweatshirts are being adorned with words, phrases and pictures to show your more playful side.  In case you missed it, I featured some Statement Sweaters on KTVI Channel 2 News at 11 a.m. today.

Statement SweatersInStyle Magazine recently featured the trend and gave some advice on selecting just the right Statement Sweater for you.

  1. This is a cheeky, of-the-moment look.  Don’t think of the logo as a message or an expression of your immortal soul…it’s just for a giggle!
  2. The casual top works best when paired with something unexpectedly luxe, like sleek leather pants or a pleated skirt in rich wool.
  3. Keep the accessories clean and sophisticated: a smart bag, simple heels and a bracelet.  Avoid necklaces or anything else that competes with the fun!

Check out Charlotte Russe for phrases like “Girls Night Out” and “Tres Chic.”  H&M has a black and white polka dot sweater featuring Minnie Mouse, and Dillard’s has a Jolt sweater with a very trendy owl and a Chelsea & Violet black and white star print sweater.  There’s so much more in stores now to take part in this fun trend!
