How To Match A Beater Coat To Your Look
Beaters, like all other sweaters, are great for every sport. They are both warm and functional, making them a popular choice in knitwear among knitters. The versatility of beater sweaters is also unmatched by any other type of unit. A knitter can create a wide variety of looks by adding or taking away buttons, shortening or lengthening sleeves, or adding an edging to the neckline. Of course, these same knits can always be worn with just about any other sweater, but it is the versatility of beater sweaters that makes them so appealing to so many knitters.
Another great thing about beater-wearing is that you can easily change from casual to formal (or semi-formal) attire, like a turtleneck with a buttoned-down shirt or a v-neck sweater with a tailored jacket. A casual sweater like a cardigan works well with most clothes but can give off a more casually cool vibe if there's no other color or style in your wardrobe. Formal wear, like a buttoned-down blazer or a skirt, gives off a more dressy vibe but can still look good with almost any outfit. Even a tuxedo does not need to be plain anymore!
One of the coolest things about beaters is that they can go from work-to-work, from casual to formal. Simply slip on your favorite sweater after work and you're dressed for the occasion. Of course, you can always coordinate your sweater to your pants and tuxedo for a nice professional look, but the ability to switch beaters effortlessly between work and formal attire is a big plus. There are so many different colors and styles available today that you will have a hard time keeping up with everyone else's outfits! You'll love the variety and the fact that each pair of clothing can be worn for so many different situations.
If you have more than one outfit to wear, a great option is to wear all beater in one color. A solid colored cardigan in beige or white is a classic choice for the fall. Or you could also match your sweater to a dark-colored shirt or sweater, or even match your pants to a light colored suit or shirt. No matter what you pair it with, you're guaranteed to make a fashion statement. It's almost impossible to match up two beater neck sweaters in the same color - you simply won't go wrong. And because they are quite simple in their design, they can easily be coordinated to the rest of your wardrobe.
If you do wear beaters often, you might want to consider buying several. Instead of buying a single sweater, get several of each color or style. You'll save time and effort when trying to decide what to wear that day. You can easily find beater sweaters that look similar in price to those in fancy department stores, and if you shop online, you'll find even better deals.
The neckline of a sweater is an important feature, especially if you're wearing it with a cardigan or other layered clothing. A high neckline can create an illusion of depth and can be flattering when you're wearing a sleeveless top or long sleeved blouse. But if you're wearing a dress, it can give you a rather washed out look. Choose a neckline that isn't too low; it can help balance out your look and give your shoulders some dimension.
One other thing to think about is whether to leave your sleeves rolled up or rolled down. When you're wearing a sweater with an overly long sleeve, you can draw attention to the area where you are wearing the sweater. But when it's rolled up, you're more camouflaged and can make a fashion statement even without being obvious. Both styles can look great together, and you can even wear a sweater with an attached belt for extra variety. Just keep in mind that the longer your sleeve is, the shorter it will be.
Now that you know how to match a beater coat to your look, you can start experimenting with different colors, patterns, or styles. If you're wearing a solid color, you can really stand out by wearing some contrast colors like black or dark gray. Or you can wear stripes along with the beater, to create a rock and roll look. Whatever you do, don't wear your sweater as just another garment; match it up with the right accessories, and you can create the look you're going for.
