6 Outfits: Jeans & Sweaters for Stylish Casual Dressing

This week’s Clothes & Conversation, “Jeans & Sweaters: The Key to Casual Fridays & Weekends this Fall” kicked off the post Labor Day week with talk of our favorite fall necessities – jeans and sweaters. In silhouettes of every shape, denim and sweater fabrics are the stars of the new season. Whether you update your closet with a fresh silhouette, like a higher rise or ankle-skimming cropped pair of jeans, or go for a sweater in a beautiful new burgundy color – or, as we suggest, do both - they’ll perfectly update your wardrobe, and surely get plenty of wear all the way through winter.
Here, we’re highlighting 6 outfits that combine some of the best denim & knit pieces of the season. Go for the whole outfit or mix and match some of these new pieces with things you already have in your closet. If you like something, just click on the “Shop It” button to buy it from our suggested retailer. And let us know what you think through the comments section below and on social media. Whatever the occasion, we’ve got you covered.

Why is it a Find? Showing off your shoulders is still a big trend for fall and a cozy sweater, like this one from Free People, is the perfect way to do it in the colder months.
Wear it with: The flowy style and relaxed fit can be worn off-the-shoulder, as shown, or as a cowl neck – check it out through the ‘shop it’ button, so you’ve got plenty of options, whether you choose to pair it with skinny jeans and cute booties for a night out or leggings and flat boots or sneakers for a casual look.
Fit Tip: Like many of Free People's tops, the fit is loose and easy. If you are between sizes, you can even size down.
Alternatives: It comes in a gorgeous shade of teal/blue throught the ‘shop it’ button. And the cream color is going fast. If it’s sold out through the ‘shop it’ button, you can still get it at Zappos. For a trimmer-fitting alternative, Free People nails this look with a wintery cable knit - and it's on sale.

WORKDAY READY.
Why is it a Find? Sweaters aren’t just in cardigan or pullover silhouettes. Rag & Bone’s blazer is such a beautifully professional way to transform a stiff blazer into a comfortably appropriate staple that you can wear for hours and hours. Really, this is one of the loveliest “swackets” (sweater + jacket = swacket) we’ve seen in a long time, with all the high-end detail and appearance of a blazer in a fine unlined brushed wool that only feels like a sweater.
Wear it with: Of course, we’re showing you some great jeans to wear with this sweater jacket this week, but trousers like these knit plaid Theory ones are an easy way to make this piece work on a more conservative day, too.
Fit Tip: Rag & Bone’s contemporary fit gives this blazer a trim, tailored fit and appearance. Go with your normal size, but if you are between sizes, you can size up.
Alternatives: If your size is sold out through the ‘shop it’ button, Shopbop may still have your size. Rag & Bone also does this blazer in an amazing army green color that is great with black, denim, and camel. J.Crew’s relaxed-fitting version comes in grey or navy, which is a beautiful alternative that looks wonderful with slim fitting bottoms. And Anthropologie has a military-inspired version with fabulous button detail.

Fit Guide
Why is it a Find? 7 For All Mankind has launched a new denim fabric for fall called b(air), and boy, is it soft and comfortable. That kind of stretch and softness usually comes in a really lightweight fabric, but this one is completely appropriate for the colder months.
Wear it with: The saturated black wash of these jeans looks great with the black wool knit blazer we’re featuring in this outfit, for a work ready feel. And, of course, you’ll get tons of wear out of them with a cute top for a night out or any of your favorite sweaters any day.
Fit Tip: 7 For All Mankind has a contemporary fit, but it isn’t too trim – especially with the great stretch in the denim of these jeans. The rise sits just around the belly button, so you won’t get muffin top. And the length will hit just around the ankle on most ladies, so heels, flats, and booties all look great. Available in 24-32, go with your typical designer denim size.
Alternatives: 7 For All Mankind has also done this amazing denim in a deep, rinsed indigo with contrast stitch and a blue/black with self stitch, offering another 2 options that are just right for a casual office day…and beyond. Alternatively, J Brand’s military-inspired button detail along the slant pockets of these jeans give them a more tailored feel that really steps up your denim for the season.

Why is it a Find? The side ruching detail on this Theory knit top makes it an ideal top to wear under a blazer, since you can take your jacket off with confidence. The pleat detail, and ribbed mid-weight fabric helps conceal any lumps and bumps, so you’ll have an effortlessly smooth look. Oh, and ladies, it's on sale.
Wear it with: We love this top under a blazer or on its own with absolutely any bottom from jeans to skirts. It’s just one of those wardrobe staples you’ll reach for over and over.
Fit Tip: Theory’s contemporary fit shows off the trim style and stretchy fabric of this top. In P-L, go with your normal size. If you are between sizes, you can size up without this top looking baggy.
Alternatives: Vince’s modern-fitting split-neck silk blouse or trim-fitting cashmere ribbed crewneck sweater are just as beautiful under the featured blazer. And of course, any button down or tee will look great.

Why is it a Find? Block heels and menswear-inspired loafers are must-haves of the season. These Rebecca Minkoff patented leather loafers interpret both beautifully for a tailored style that is the perfect finish to this work look.
Wear it with: What we love most about these loafers is that the pointed toe prevent then from looking too bulky, so you can wear them with slim pants and jeans, and even with skirts and tights.
Fit Tip: They run true to size.
Alternatives: Coach’s loafer alternative also has a tassel detail, but with a rubber lug sole that is so comfortable. They are a more rugged take on menswear inspiration that look great with this outfit and any pair of jeans or trousers.

CASUAL FRIDAY.
Why is it a Find? When you think sweaters and jeans, you may not think of a dress, but this Diane von Furstenberg wool/cashmere dress is going to change all that. We are absolutely obsessed with it – check out the reviews through the ‘shop it’ button, and you’ll see that we’re not the only ones. The color, fit, and timeless style is perfection.
Wear it with: The great thing about a dress is how little fuss is required to have a complete outfit. We are showing how to wear this one casually, with a denim jacket and suede boots, for a Friday work look that easily transitions to a night out. But with black tights and suede pumps, it can also take on a dressier look. You can even layer a button down underneath for a stylishly work-ready outfit.
Fit Tip: Unlike DVF’s jersey wrap dresses, this sweater version is easier and more forgiving, so in P-L, we suggest going with your normal size – no need to size up to give a nice wrap that shouldn’t require a cami underneath (though you can certainly add one, if you like).
Alternatives: This dress comes in a soft, pretty pale heather grey through the ‘shop it’ button, as well. A true steal, this blue/black patterned version won’t be around long, so grab your size if it’s still available. No matter your style though, there is a sweater dress for you this season. Velvet's version has an oversized sweater look that is effortless and relaxed; Theory’s contemporary take has a fit-and-flare shape that highlights your waist and offers some room in the hip/behind area in a beautiful dark green cashmere; and, DEMYLEE (one of our favorite newer sweater resources) offers a formfitting version.

Gap - 1969 Icon Denim Jacket
Why is it a Find? When we think of Gap at its best, we think of our old school jean jackets. And this faded black denim one is just the right update for a modern look that is so fresh again.
Wear it with: It hits at the hip, so it is just the right proportion for a dress. You can see it with one in one of the additional images through the ‘shop it’ button. And the faded black denim looks great with all the updated olive cargo pants of the season, as well as colored denim or a cute pair of sweats.
Fit Tip: Gap’s fit is relaxed and modern. Available in XS-XXL, Petites and Talls, there is a size for everyone.
Alternatives: You can never go wrong with the classic blue denim version, whether you go with this same style from Gap or J.Crew’s option that is just a bit trimmer and shorter.

Why is it a Find? A plaid scarf adds to the casual vibe of this outfit and is also a nice accent to the wrap neckline of the featured dress.
Wear it with: Of course, this color combination looks great in this look, and you can wear it with any of your neutral tees, sweaters, and casual dresses. It’s also pretty fabulous with a denim button down shirt.
Alternatives: This scarf comes in several lovely color combinations through the ‘shop it’ button.

Why is it a Find? Complete this look with Via Spiga’s suede boots. The almond-shaped toe isn’t too pointy or round, so they aren’t too trendy. The completely “walkable” 2” block heel is just high enough to look good with a dress, while providing loads of comfort.
Wear it with: The knee-high shaft looks great with skirts and dresses, as well as skinny jeans and leggings.
Fit Tip: They run true to size and come in a large range, 4-12.
Alternatives: These boots come in a few neutral suede options through the ‘shop it’ button. Alternatively, kate spade new york’s leather versions –whether you like a lower or higher chunky heel - are beautiful options that you’ll get just as much use out of all season long.

TAILORED EASE.
Why is it a Find? Anthropologie gives a tailored cable knit sweater a modern update by adding an accent of a tweedy fabric across the side and back of the flattering peplum.
Wear it with: While many classic cable knit sweaters hit at the waist or high hip with a typical banded trim, the peplum hem of this gorgeous wine-colored sweater stylishly highlights your waist and skims over the lower belly/hip area, so it’s easy to pair with skinny jeans as we’re suggesting today. It looks just as good with slim wool trousers in any neutral from black to camel.
Fit Tip: This sweater has a modern fit that isn’t too trim. In XXS-XL, it comes in Petite too, to ensure it’s not too long or voluminous on anyone.
Alternatives: Another tailored option, J.Crew’s argyle crewneck is the brand at its best, using menswear inspiration for a fresh take on a timeless sweater in their trusted modern fit.

FRAME Denim
Sold by: Nordstrom

Fit Guide
Why is it a Find? If you haven’t tried FRAME jeans yet, this is a great pair to start with. The higher rise hits just at/slightly above most ladies’ belly buttons, which we love for skinny jeans. It creates a longer, leaner line and prevents muffin top by hitting closer to your natural waist.
Wear it with: The dark wash with slight distressing – in just the right places – makes it easy to dress these jeans up or down. They hold up to a tailored sweater, like the one featured in this outfit, and can pair with casual tees and slouchy sweaters/sweatshirts, too. The higher rise also adds polish if you want to tuck in a button down shirt.
Fit Tip: Of course, they are skinny jeans, so they are meant to be slim-fitting. FRAME Denim has a contemporary fit that is more similar to Joe’s Jeans than Rag & Bone – they don’t run super trim, so you can go with your normal size (23-32). The waist isn’t binding either, just adding to the comfort of the soft denim that has just the right amount of stretch. They are meant to hit at just above the ankle, which is the look this season, but if you are petite, they will be full length – and that looks great, too.
Alternatives: For a mid-rise option, with a straight (not skinny) leg, these James Jeans offer the same wide size range with equally amazing stretch and softness.

Why is it a Find? L. Erickson’s wide cuff adds just a bit of pizzazz to this outfit. In neutral tones, it works with the rich burgundy of the sweater, and can easily be worn over the cuff of the sleeve.
Wear it with: A statement cuff adds the right finish to the rolled-up sleeves of any button down, as well as a sleeveless dress or ¾ sleeve-length sweater.
Alternatives: Click through the ‘shop it’ button to check out all the fun, neutral options. There is also a thinner version for a more subtle statement, and we also love this gold hammered cuff for a bolder accent.

Why is it a Find? Sure, you can wear your favorite heels, loafers, or sneakers with this outfit, but we love Dolce Vita’s suede booties for an updated alternative. With a pointed toe, modern block heel, and just right height, you’ll reach for these booties over and over again.
Wear it with: These are the perfect booties for all of the cropped pants and jeans of the season. The shaft comes up a few inches above the ankle and have a slim fit on the leg (with a stylish and functional back tie) so they easily slip under the hem of your pants, and create a smooth line when you wear them with tights and skirts/dresses, too.
Fit Tip: These booties run true to size. And the 3 ½” heel is thick and sturdy for comfortable walking.
Alternatives: These booties also come in grey and burgundy suede through the ‘shop it’ button – and they all work with the outfit we’re showing today. While we are featuring this well-priced option, Stuart Weitzman started this bootie look with a skinnier, dressier heeled version

NIGHT OUT.
Why is it a Find? It can be trickier to dress for a night out once the weather cools – you want a ladylike, pretty look without being freezing, right? This sweater is the answer. Joie’s modern aesthetic is on full display with its gorgeous lace-trim that adds just the right amount of feminine flare to a timeless black mock neck sweater.
Wear it with: Slim jeans and pants look best with this sweater, as we’re suggesting in this outfit, to offset the easy fit and highlight the lace hem detail.
Fit Tip: We are showing you a picture from Zappos, as it is the most accurate visual of the easy, modern fit Joie is known for. Once you click through the ‘shop it’ button to Nordstrom, you will see it is much looser on the model than it will be on most ladies. (Both sites offer free shipping and returns.)
Alternatives: Joie also made this sweater with black lace trim, which is so chic and easy to pair with everything – including all the pieces in this look. Anthropologie’s take on lace accenting comes in the form of a beautiful pointelle sleeve of this timeless black, modern-fitting crewneck sweater. But dressing up a sweater for a night out doesn’t have to mean lace – Banana Republic’s bead detailing gives a basic silhouette a fabulously unexpected twist. Or keep things simple with the little open shoulder detail of Vince’s easy-fitting turtleneck – the no-fuss, no-muss style Vince is known for.

Why is it a Find? Instead of black or dark denim for a night out, go with these cognac sueded jeans from 7 For All Mankind. The color is so elegantly rich, and you will be pleasantly amazed at how soft and stretchy they are. Get the look of suede with the comfort of your favorite leggings.
Wear it with: This cognac color is one of the perfect neutrals of the season. It accents black and white, and looks beautiful with rich jewel tones like burgundy, forest green, or sapphire blue. Any style top works, whether you go with the sweater we’re showing in this outfit, a tucked-in blouse or easy, tunic style. Wondering what color shoes work? Black leather is easy in any silhouette, and white sneakers make for a great casual finish. (And we’re showing you another fun option below.)
Fit Tip: 7 For All Mankind has a contemporary fit, but it isn’t too trim – especially with the soft fabric and easy stretch in these jeans. The mid-rise sits just below the belly button, and the length will hit just around the ankle on most ladies, so heels, flats, and booties all look great. Available in 24-32, go with your typical designer denim size.
Alternatives: 7 For All Mankind also has coated jeans in this color that are equally stunning. Note that this coated version is not quite as stretchy and soft as the sueded version we’re featuring, but you can still go with your normal size. Black is an easy and always chic alternative, so swapping out the cognac color for black coated denim or J Brand’s black velvet jeans are other fun alternatives.

Why is it a Find? Statement jewelry, with big stones and pearls have a wonderfully vintage feel, yet when paired with updated prints and textures (as shown in this outfit), create really modern appeal.

Fit Tip: We’re showing you how these look on, so you can get a sense of the size – chunky enough to make a stylish statement, without overwhelming.

Why is it a Find? We absolutely love a little leopard this season, and accenting this outfit of neutrals blacks and browns with these J.Crew leopard flats is the perfect way to pull it all together.
Wear it with: Treat this animal print like a neutral, truly. Sure, they will pop simple jeans, black trousers and a white top, or a timeless black sheath. And they will also add an extra touch of style to a plaid or dark floral top with slouchy, distressed jeans.
Fit Tip: In sizes 5-12, these flats run true to size.
Alternatives: No matter the heel height, J.Crew has the animal print shoe for you – stylish block heels, feminine open d’orsay flats, or sexy heels.

WEEKEND ON-THE-GO.
Why is it a Find? Versatility is one of the many key selling points of this cozy Joie sweater. It can be worn as a cowl neck (shown), while you are running errands during the day. And then add some bold lipstick, and pull the neckline down for an off-the-shoulder version, so you can head straight to drinks and dinner.
Wear it with: The soft creamy white is flecked with black for a tweedy-looking texture that is so rich. We are showing you how to wear it with boyfriend jeans for a casual, weekend look. And you can also pair it with slim black trousers or a pencil skirt for a dressier look that can take you from desk-to-dinner with ease.
Fit Tip: We are directing you to Neiman Marcus through the ‘shop it’ button where you can see how this sweater looks when you choose to wear it off-the-shoulder. Cut in Joie’s easy, modern fit, you’ll see that it is a bit big on the model there. The picture we’re showing you from Shopbop offers a more accurate view of the fit. Both sites offer free shipping and returns.
Alternatives: Anthropologie offers a couple of cowl neck/off-the-shoulder sweaters with an equally easy fit in laid back silhouettes, like this shirttail hem version and this fun batwing version

Why is it a Find? One of our absolute favorite boyfriend styles, Citizen of Humanity’s Emerson fit isn’t too oversized – just perfectly slouchy and comfortable – so they can be worn with slouchy and trim tops, alike. In this new faded black, they are just amazing.
Wear it with: Of course, we love them in this outfit with a soft, feminine sweater. And there’s nothing they don’t go with – sweaters, plaid button down, sexy blouses, etc. The same goes for shoes - sneakers, ballet flats, and heels all work. And in the cold weather, booties are an easy way to maintain the rolled-up boyfriend look without exposing your skin to the elements.
Fit Tip: The effortless fit is evident in every aspect of these jeans, meant for the perfect slouchy look. If you have skinny fitting Citizens, you can go with the same size, but these will certainly have a more relaxed feel. If you are often between sizes, you can size down – especially if you are petite. These sit just below the belly button with a loose, but not sloppy fit through the hips and legs.
Alternatives: Hudson jeans offers a similar faded black wash in a high-waisted skinny and a mid-rise skinny. Both are seriously soft and stretchy in a contemporary fit that isn’t too trim – go with your normal size.

Fit Tip: They run true to size, in sizes 5-11.
Alternatives: When the weather gets too cold for ballet flats, these Geox pull-on booties are just high enough to meet the cropped length of the jeans in this look and have an equally comfortable rubber lug sole.

Why is it a Find? Citizens of Humanity always does a great job with their fits and washes, and that is especially true with these jeans. Called “Elsa”, this is one of our favorite updates to skinny jeans. They’re slim, but not super skinny, so there is a bit of ease in the hip/upper thigh/crotch area and they finish with a straighter hem that doesn’t fully hug your leg, like typical skinnies. Click through the ‘shop it’ button to see all the views, to get a clear visual of what we mean.
Wear it with: The medium blue has the right amount of distressing for any casual, weekend look - there is slight fraying, but not actual ripping. We’re showing you one casual way to wear them here, but don’t be afraid to add a sexy top and heels for an effortless date night look, too.
Fit Tip: Citizens of Humanity is a contemporary denim line, but the fit isn’t overly skinny, so we suggest going with your normal size (available 24-32). Because it is a slimmer fit, if you are between sizes, you may try going with the larger one. While these are several inches above the ankle on the model, we find they hit just above the ankle on many ladies, so you can wear them with booties in the colder months and not expose any skin. The rise is updated to sit just around the belly button – the ideal spot to eliminate muffin top.
Alternatives: Citizens of Humanity’s Agnes fit has a slightly higher rise and slightly shorter length that we’ve found to be just a bit looser in fit for a trendier look. Alternatively, 7 For All Mankind’s version has a bootcut flare to the cropped leg that is truly updated looking this season – and you can see how a cropped length can work with boots once the weather is cold.

And the slight a-line to the body ensures it won’t cling to any of your bits or bumps – not always an easy feat for a simple knit.
Wear it with: When you need a tee, whether it’s under a sweater as we’re showing here or just on its own, this tee will be your choice. The cotton fabric has a bit of slub-like texture to it, just adding to its perfection.
Fit Tip: The modern fit is typical of what you’ll find at Anthropologie. In XXS-XL, and Petites too, this one is made for every lady.
Alternatives: It comes in a lot of colors through the ‘shop it’ button – we think you’ll want to stock up. Another play on an interesting hem, this tee has a faux layered detail that is just as flattering.

Fit Guide
Why is it a Find? Oh, these sneakers! We’re obsessed. The dark grey flannel is the perfect update to your white sneakers and holds up to all the cozy, textured fabrics of the season.
Wear it with: We want to – and will – wear them with everything. They work with the jeans and sweater/tee in this look, and are just as cute with leggings or even wide leg trousers and a button down top. With the modern day merging of casual and smart dressing, the menswear-inspired fabric of these sneakers give them versatility that can dress up or down.
Fit Tip: They fit true to size and are super comfortable.
Alternatives: J.Crew also has a plaid version that we just love for a little pop of pattern.
