Choose A Sweater That’s Easier In Color And Design

Fashion is not eternal, but there are time-honored principles that always work. One such principle is universality. The simpler the drawing and color of the sweater, the more versatile the sweater becomes. The more concise the sweater, the easier it is to choose the color of jeans. We have a series of articles about the universal wardrobe, I recommend reading it.

Traditional male colors: gray, dark gray, light gray, brown, dark blue, and green are convenient to combine with all traditional colors of jeans. Let’s remember what jeans usually lie on the shelves of stores: light blue, dark blue, black, and white.

Of course, a simple monotonous sweater and regular blue jeans will not make you a style, but you can go for a trick. For example, you can buy a sweater with a large knitted or interesting pattern.

There are interesting models of sweaters where the sleeves and breasts are connected from a contrasting yarn. For example, gray sleeves and white breasts or dark blue sleeves and white breasts. These sweaters are ideal for classic jeans.

Sweaters in white, red, or other bright colors can also be worn with jeans, but they should complement the style of jeans and not lose in style. For example, jeans come with a contrasting orange stitch on the seams that will fit perfectly into an orange sweater.

By the way, we have a great article on how to pick up a sweater man. It will be useful to read.

Don’t Mix Up The Styles Of Jeans And Sweaters

In short, narrow jeans are tight sweaters, short jeans are short sweaters. One of the main recommendations you can give is to pick up things of the same style.

If you decide to wear a large-print, three-dimensional knitted sweater, it would be inappropriate to wear narrow jeans. Excessive “weight” in the upper body and “lightness” in the lower body. There is an imbalance on the face. Wide classic jeans should always be worn under the volume sweaters, which will level the top and bottom of the body.

And the opposite is true. When you decide to put on a tight-tight pullover with a V-neck, put on wide, baggy jeans at the bottom.

Round neck sweater with jeans

By the way, don’t forget to keep your style when you put your shoes on. The tighter you are wearing, the less bulky your shoes should be. For example, if you’re wearing a thin, tight sweater, skinny jeans, you’ll be wearing “light” shoes or sneakers. Once you wear bulky work boots, you’ll look like the boy who wore Dad’s boots.

Add A Touch Of “Zest”

One of the main challenges in combining sweaters and jeans is to make the combination interesting. A simple sweater and jeans can look boring and simple. To dilute the pattern, you should add a “zest” to the image.

The easiest way to diversify your style is to add accessories. For example, tie a men’s scarf that resembles a texture or jeans color. If you’re wearing a cardigan and a classic cardigan shirt underneath, add a knitted tie to match the color of your jeans or cardigan. By the way, in our online store, you can buy a knitted tie in different colors. Remember that the shirt should be in contrast to the cardigan.

If you’re free from the corporate dress code, let your shirt be straightened out and look a little out of your sweater. It will look even more interesting if you tuck in your shirt only halfway. In addition, you’ll need tough shoes to strengthen your style.

If you’re thinner, you’ll look bigger and more harmonious when you wear several layers of clothing (shirt, shirt, cardigan, blazer). Read more about how to dress skinny men in our past publications.

Learn To Dress Properly In Layers

In winter we dress in several layers to keep warm. However, not everybody knows what to wear and in what order from childhood. We fix the situation.

1. The outer layers should cover the edges of the lower layer of clothing. You should not have a T-shirt sticking out from under your sweater. The lower edge of the jacket should not protrude from under the jacket or sheepskin coat. Maybe you’ve heard the expression: “sticking out like it’s from under a Friday Saturday”? It applies to this rule. On the other hand, it is now fashionable to have a jeans shirt sticking out or a T-shirt collar looking out from under the sweater collar. Everybody is looking for their own style and many people go to experiment with casual style. But this is appropriate if you are confident in your taste and can soberly evaluate your appearance.

Men’s pullover combination

If you are sure of your style, you can safely pull the edges of your shirt out and roll up your sleeves.

2. If you are wearing a V-neck sweater or cardigan over your shirt, try to keep the collar corners of your shirt under the sweater, not over it. Sometimes the corners of the shirt collar will become very deformed, and to get rid of this problem, use iron bones for the collar.

3. The combination of a jacket, sweater, and shirt is very insidious. Sweater sleeves should be over the sleeves of the shirt, while the sleeves of the jacket should be slightly shorter than the sleeves of the sweater. This is the perfect layering. On the other hand, it is acceptable when the sleeves of the shirt go beyond the sweater and the jacket, while the sleeves of the sweater are not visible under the sleeve of the jacket.

4. If you wear a sweater and shirt, the shirt sleeves should be hidden and not visible. Alternatively, make them flush to prevent the sweater sleeve from hanging over the hard cuff of the shirt.

All these rules with layering don’t seem so important, but every detail has a certain tradition. The question is, do you want to follow tradition or show a rebellious style and plunge into experimentation. It’s up to you to decide.

Typically, the patches are brown, beige, or black, so finding jeans with a contrast stitch of the same color will not be a problem.
