3 New Ways to Wear Knits (and None of Them Are Sweaters!)

With the crisp fall weather in full swing, we've been wearing sweaters and cardigans on repeat - but TBH, while we love a cozy knit, even our favorite sweaters are starting to feel a bit snoozeworthy. The quickest way to update your fall knit game? Knit pieces that aren't sweaters. We're talking dresses, skirts and even pants - they're the perfect way to achieve those snuggly autumn vibes and hit the "refresh" button on your wardrobe.

1. Sweater Dress
All Knit Everything: Dress

Sure, you could throw on sweats and a tee on those days when even making it out of bed feels like an accomplishment - or you could fool the world into thinking you totally have it together with a cozy knit midi dress ($63, ASOS). (Hint: This look is just as comfy!) Toss a leather jacket ($99.99, Mango) on top for extra warmth and to break up the long silhouette. This simple, minimalist outfit looks amazing with a no-fuss pair of sneakers ($79.95, Nordstrom). Finish off the look by adding in eye-catching details - a statement ear cuff ($5.90, Forever 21) and a cool faux furry clutch ($69, ASOS) look trendy, but don't overwhelm this polished, less-is-more ensemble.

2. Ribbed Pants

Knit pants ($48, Topshop) may seem tricky to nail since their snuggly sweater fabric can make them clingy, but shapes with a flare or wide leg tend to be on the more flattering side, and have a killer leg-lengthening silhouette when paired with chunky-heeled booties ($35, Boohoo). Dress them up with a floaty high-necked blouse ($39.90, Zara) and a tailored camel coat ($45.60, New Look). The must-have piece to add to any outfit this season? A skinny scarf ($19, Urban Outfitters) - which looks on-point draped around the neckline of your blouse and adds that retro, '70s vibe we're all going for this fall.

3. Pencil skirt

Want to try the all-knit-everything look? Pull it off with a ribbed midi skirt ($25, Wallis). Bloggers and street style stars like Danielle Bernstein of We Wore What have been spotted rocking the cozy look, and it's the warmest way to wear a skirt in chilly weather! To get the look, balance out the proportions of your pencil skirt with an oversize fringe-trimmed sweater ($34.99, H&M) on top. Wear the neutral look with a pair of oxblood faux croc booties ($119, Zara) to add a bit of color! Roll up the sleeves on your sweater to reveal a marble statement cuff ($6, Charlotte Russe), which matches the simple, clean vibes in the rest of your outfit. A wool hat ($29.99, H&M) makes for a polished finishing touch!
