You know it is monsoon season in Singapore when you feel like you have just stepped into Antarctica whenever you board the bus, or when you start to feel your fingers slowly turning into mini popsicles.

I may be exaggerating, but you know what I mean.

Since it is important to keep warm this season, this gives you the perfect excuse to pile on those layers! The easiest way to style sweater weather outfits is to centre them around one main item.

Here are four key pieces you should unearth from your wardrobe right now.

1. Sweaters


Sweaters for #sweatherweather


What is #sweaterweather without sweaters? Feel free to show off all the awesome sweaters that you have bought but did not wear for fear of roasting in the sun.

Wear a sweater with a pair of fitted pants, and you are good to go! Choose a duller design for your bottoms if your sweater has a vibrant design, and do the opposite for a plain-looking sweater.

2. Scarves


Wear scarves in warm autumn tones like brown and red!


Scarves are a great way to deal with the temperamental weather in Singapore. The weather might be chilly most of the time, but there are days when the sun comes out in full force at noon.

You should arm yourself with a scarf in these situations! This way, you get to stay warm even when you have a tank top on. #win

3. Knitted outerwear


Fun fact: The “holes” in your knitwear can trap plenty of heat.


Knitwear should not be restricted for #sweaterweather. On sunny days, you can choose to pair knitwear with a skirt (for the girls), bermudas (for the guys), or even your trusty pair of jeans.

Since knitwear is in trend nowadays, why not hop onto the bandwagon and stay in style?

4. Beanies


Save your hair and keep your ears warm with a beanie.


It is a known fact that Singapore’s humid weather often cramps our style. Curly hair gets frizzy instantly, and straight hair often goes limp.

If this is a common occurrence, having a beanie is the way to go. It not only hides your hair, it also is a cool addition to your OOTD. This is also a way of acting, coughs, hipster.

While staying under the covers in this cold weather seem like a very attractive option, do consider these outfit ideas when you head out next time!
