A cozy knit is effortlessly stylish during office hours—or after hours.

How to Wear Knits for Work and Play
1. Start with a shapely piece—anything too baggy can look sloppy. Try neutrals during the week, and play with bold colors on the weekend.

2. For an office-friendly ensemble, pull the look together with sophisticated extras, like chunky heels and a structured blazer.

3. Did someone say Sunday brunch? A sporty pullover and cool sneakers easily dress down a ribbed tube skirt.
