We all love being cozy and warm in wintertime. It’s important to know what we look best in so we can choose the most stylish, versatile and wearable knits that express our individuality.
Do you know what type of sweater girl you are?
Here is a handy guide to the most popular cashmere knits from classic staples to trend-setting styles.
Traditionally these are button down and are available in crew or v-neck styles. The more classic versions hit right at the top of the hip, while trendier looks are slightly cropped, slouchier or have elongated sleeves. We love them worn with basic t-shirts and tank tops. More progressive styles include those that are longer, from below the hip to ¾ length, and are buttonless with draped fronts. These tend to work for both day and evening occasions.
These range in styles from fitted to oversized boyfriend sweaters. The neckline allows for layering of long sleeve crew neck t-shirts, sleeveless tanks or even turtle necks underneath. If you are going to spend the weekend in the country, your nights spent cozying up near a fire, you will want a chunkier, oversized sweater that you can wear with your favorite pair of worn-in jeans. For days spent in the city, either at work or checking out a museum or gallery on the weekend, we suggest a more fitted alternative. This can range from body skimming styles to those that have slightly more room but evoke an air of sophistication when worn with a pencil skirt, trousers or leather jacket. Scarves are perfect to pair with crewnecks as they not only provide warmth but style as well.
Not only does this style keep your neck warm in the harsher days of winter, it can range from a basic fold-over-neck to those that are high, ribbed and could easily take the place of a winter scarf. Your basic turtleneck will be all one type of texture. Other turtlenecks are designed with creative license and can be flat bodied with a ribbed neck or a ribbed body with a cross stitched high neck. They can also run the gamut from hitting just below the waist to ultra-long. Whether fitted and body hugging or edgy and cut asymmetrically at the bottom, there are a myriad of choices and there is definitely one out there for you.
V-Necks can either have a subtle V or a plunging V which can be worn with a touch of lace on a camisole underneath. V-necks defy categorization in that they are offered in many weights and can have a range of detailing such as contrast stitching on the V or ribbed, loose and fluid bottoms.
All four styles are must-haves in any woman’s closet. Find the silhouettes, textures and lengths that work best for you and have some fun with your style! Shop these styles HERE.
