Wearing sweaters with jeans may be a very classic outfit to wear during the winter. But that definitely doesn’t mean it has to be dull or boring. You just have to choose the right sweater.

I partnered with Nordstrom to show you the most stylish sweaters with jeans looks from Nordstrom Made brands for the new season. You will find lots of great options at affordable prices.

Let’s start with a pair of jeans, and then see how you could wear the same pair of jeans with different sweaters for different looks, from casual options to dressier choices to see you through the winter months.

We opted for skinny jeans for this article as they are versatile and comfortable in winter. However, many of these looks would also good with other types of jeans.

how to wear your sweaters with jeans this winter

1. cinched waist

Let’s start with a cardigan. While most sweater and cardigan styles don’t tend to show off the waist, the Open Edit sweater (below) is a good choice if you have an hourglass figure, or you want to create the illusion of one.

As this creates a nice, flattering silhouette, you could easily dress this style up for evenings out with a pretty camisole and heels. Or, you can wear during the day with flat boots.

2. off the shoulder

Off the shoulder sweaters are particularly on trend this season, and are a great way to show off a little bit of skin without getting chilly. An off the shoulder choice can be a good one for the pear shape as the neckline can balance out your hips. It can also be good if you want to hide a belly as the eye is drawn to your shoulders and away from your tummy area.

3. classic cashmere

Cashmere keeps you warm and feels beautiful against your skin during the cooler months. Team with another classic choice like a trench coat.

4. long cardigan

A long cardigan is one of the most flattering options you can choose for your outfits. This is because leaving your cardigan open creates a column effect which can be lengthening and slimming.

6. COLORBLOCK

I noticed plenty of colorblock sweaters on the designer runways from the likes of Akris, Jill Sander, Victoria Beckham and Dolce&Gabbana this winter. But, you don’t need a designer budget to get the same look. The Caslon colorblock sweater (below) is a stylish, affordable option that comes in four different color pathways.
