Sweater Trends: Cropped Sweater with Maxi Skirt

Sweaters are one of the Fall trends that I'm loving. They come in  oversized and tailored styles as well as casual and dressier fabrications.  If you really want to try a sweater look, here is one way of wearing it while remaining sophisticated and chic (see Jessica Alba in Ralph Lauren Collection).
The key to this look is to wear cropped sweaters with dressy elements, like fluid maxi skirts, elegant sandals, and dressy bags for a fashion forward, simple and ladylike feel.
The dressier fabric of the maxi skirts is best when pairing with sweaters.  To avoid baring your mid-riff, opt for sweater styles that hit just below the belly button. Sweaters with a body-hugging ribbed band at the bottom will make for a smaller midsection, as well as flash less skin.
