Wondering how to wear a long sweater? The style now is definitely learning towards more cropped style sweaters and tops, but here are 4 great ways to wear your long sweater.
Do you prefer long or cropped sweaters? Because of the new trends, long sweaters can feel a little dated, but I have some great outfit ideas on how to wear a long sweater. These 4 looks will help you keep older pieces in your closet feeling fresh!
This is the tunic I’m wearing. I’m wearing a size small — it shrinks in the wash, so size up so it stays longer!
How to Wear a Long Sweater
Try a tunic with straight leg pants
Can you wear a tunic sweater with straight leg pants? YES YOU CAN. But make sure your ankles are showing so you get some skin showing under all that fabric. Also the monochromatic look helps keep the outfit feeling streamlined and classy, rather than lots and lots of fabric drowning your body.

Layer your tunic sweater
You can absolutely wear your tunic sweater under a coat, but make sure the coat is long. I have a post all about this RIGHT HERE. Ankle boots or flats or sneakers would work with this outfit, but I chose over the knee boots instead.

Dress down the tunic sweater
Can you dress down a tunic sweater like this? Yep! Choose a pair of jeans (I chose skinny jeans to balance the oversized sweater) and then wore high top sneakers and tall socks for extra warmth. Then I finished the outfit with a baseball hat for casual touch. I love how this outfit came together — simple and cool!

But I also like a pair of brown or tan or leopard or gray sneakers that feel a little less bright when I’m adding darker colors to my outfits.
