Evening Sweater Style: Sexy Warmth…It’s Possible

Nights out are a time to show off your feminine side. Do sweaters fit in to that equation? You bet they do. Not just for warmth – though on a Fall or Winter night, that’s certainly part of it. They can be sexy, too. With mod and ‘70’s inspirations in full swing, there are lean silhouettes that look great for date night or drinks with the girls. Sweater dresses and cozy options for casual nights by the fire are must-haves this season- especially when you play with some trendier accents, like floral, lace, and cut out details. So, let’s get dig into the great ones we’ve found.
Let us know what you think in the comments below. Check back tomorrow (Thursday) for amazing casual sweaters that will get you through many weekends to come in cozy style. Whatever the occasion, we’ve got you covered.

We are strong believers in the power of the Diane von Furstenberg wrap dress. There is simply nothing like this timeless style to make a lady feel like a lady. While it’s usually done in a seasonless jersey fabric, this Find is made of a super soft wool. The result? Maybe the sexiest and most flattering sweater dress out there. We find the sweater wrap dresses are even more forgiving than their jersey counterparts, and in sizes P-L, you don’t need to size up as we suggest in jersey. Just go with your normal size. The cobalt blue floral pattern represents the moody florals of the season, but DVF’s prints are always amazing – and this one is sure to become iconic, just like the rest. The black ground makes it easy to pair with black tights and boots. You can also dress it up with sexy, strappy black heels.

For a more casual sweater dress, perfect for any relaxed night of drinks and dinner, DEMYLEE’s 100% cashmere tunic style is the way to go. It has an open v-neck and on-seam pockets that accentuate the easy shape – we always love a good pocket in a style like this. Add a pop of color with a scarf or keep your look sleek by just adding a statement necklace. It also comes in grey through the 'shop it' button, and there is even a turtleneck version, too. It’s just that good. DEMYLEE started with sweaters and it’s still a main focus of the line, delivering luxurious fabrics in well-made timeless styles. The contemporary fit is relaxed, perfect for a night of enjoying a good meal with friends. We're sending you to Revolve Clothing's website, where they offer free shipping and returns.

If you’ve seen the Dolce & Gabbana ads this season, or noticed some beautiful red floral dresses on celebrities, you may have fallen in love with the gorgeously feminine blooms. Now, you can have a very similar floral pattern at a fraction of the price with this Samantha Sung cashmere sweater. The simple crewneck silhouette is all about the pattern. You can certainly pair it with an equally bold pattern, like Anthropologie is doing in their picture, but we like the elegance of keeping the rest of your outfit simple. It's beautiful with black trousers (wide leg or skinny), a black leather pencil skirt, or even a great pair of jeans. The deep blue version is equally amazing. We are truly in love.

Joie - Matrika Long-Sleeve Top with Lace Inserts
It doesn’t get more feminine than black lace, and the back accent on this otherwise simple Joie sweater  is just the kind of subtle allure that we find the sexiest of all. The front is a solid sweater knit, so this one is all party in the back. You can wear a cami underneath (black or nude to show off the lace), just your bra, or no bra at all (if you’re lucky). How much skin you want to show through the lace is entirely up to you, and all the ways we’re suggesting look great. The lace back  finishes with a raw edge that not only shows off the beautiful fabric, it also flatters by gently hanging over the waistband of whatever bottom you choose to wear with it. Give this sweater an edgy feel by wearing it with coated, leather-like jeans. Or create a fully feminine look with a midi-skirt (hitting at the calf) or pencil skirt. And you’ll never go wrong with dark wash jeans and a sexy pair of heels.

There is nothing like a simple white angora sweater to make you feel like a lady. While it can be wonderfully precious, with a satin skirt or velvet trousers for a dressy event, especially around the holidays, it can look edgy and cool with leather pants or distressed jeans and sexy heels or boots. Alice + Olivia uses the right amount of angora to create the dreamiest loft without it being overpowering. The back of the sweater is simply ribbed, so the brushed look of the angora is only on the front. That, combined with the contemporary fit keeps the shape looking trim, and not overpowering or too fluffy. The quality ensures this won’t shed all over the place (though a little initial shedding should be expected for any sweater with angora in it).

This Rebecca Minkoff (yes, the designer of those amazing handbags makes equally amazing clothing) is such a fabulous sweater for a fun night out. The cream wool is seriously soft and not too heavy, so you won’t overheat in a restaurant or commuting with your coat on. Besides, with those amazing cut-out shoulders, you’ve got a little ventilation – disguised as pure style. It is flecked with wonderful color, so you can wear it with jeans of color or your favorite shade of distressed denim. It’s great with cords or ponte pants, as well. It’s an amazing price in a contemporary fit that makes it an easy choice to add to your wardrobe.

A cowlneck adds beautiful design appeal to Club Monaco’s luxurious cashmere sweater, and is lovely to show off your collarbones. It dresses up an otherwise simple silhouette, and looks great when sitting around a table at a restaurant – all of the interest of the sweater is visible and it’s not too closed up so you won’t be hot. Whether you choose the pale heather grey (shown) or the light tan praline, the sophisticated color palette dresses up jeans and pairs with dressier pieces, like skirts and trousers. The easy, longer shape finishes with a ribbed hem, so you can even wear it with ponte pants or coated leggings, especially if you are on the shorter side.

Vince - Pointelle Trim Cashmere Sweater
The delicate pink is the perfect color for the soft 100% cashmere and relaxed fit of this Vince sweater. It’s just so easily feminine, especially with the pointelle detailing. For a sophisticated dinner with the in-laws, a pair of pale grey or camel trousers is so posh-looking. For a little more fun agenda (not that that’s not fun, of course), pair it with a great pair of jeans or leggings and high boots. The neckline can easily accommodate a statement necklace, but you don’t need one – this sweater speaks for itself. If your size is sold out or your interested in an ivory version, Nordstrom carries this style, too.

With leggings, treat this sweater from Polo Ralph Lauren as a dress and a tunic…a dress/tunic hybrid. The amazing cognac brown elbow patches give it that perfect English countryside feel that will have you curling up by a fireplace over cocktails with stylish ease. (Check them out, along with the additional black and brown versions of this piece through the 'shop it' button.) Add a belt if you want to show off your waist, but it’s great on its own with high boots in black or cognac and black tights or leggings. Winter perfection - and right now you can get it for 25% off with code RLGIVE15.
