While there's no denying that sweaters will always be a cold-weather staple, after a few months of heavy rotation, they can feel—for lack of a better word—boring. I'll be the first to admit that I can get into a slight outfit rut toward the end of the season and end up reaching for the same sweater-and-jeans combo I've been rocking for the past few months. During desperate times like these, I turn to the mecca of all outfit inspiration for fresh styling ideas: Instagram (where else?!).
