As warm summer days become a distant memory, it’s time to stock up on sweaters. With so many styles, cuts, colors and fabrics to choose from, sweaters are perfect for both work and play during the chilly seasons.
Add Dimension to Your Wardrobe
Cardigan sweaters are an essential layering piece for both work and weekend activities alike. For work, cardigans can be perfectly paired with sleek dress pants or a skirt. For many women, their go-to work cardigan is a traditional button down style in a solid color. Blacks, whites, and grays pair perfectly with everything, but a cardigan in a brighter hue or even an argyle print can also go great with just about anything, and it is an excellent way to bring a splash of color into your everyday work wear. Also look for knit-shrugs and charmeuse cardigans with ruffled trim or belts for added interest.
The addition of a few cardigans in your wardrobe is an easy way to add interest to any outfit and give you more options when it comes to mixing and matching. The classic womens cardigan sweater is a staple item in most work wardrobes not only for fashion, but for function as well. It is the ultimate layering piece for unpredictable office temperatures. Simply throw the sweater on when the thermostat dips too low, and take it off if the temperatures begin to creep up.
Dress Up or Dress Down
One of the many great things about sweaters is that they are so easily dressed up or down. Wear a sweater with your best trousers or skirt for work, and transition into weekend mode by pairing it with your favorite pair of jeans. When it comes to weekend wear, some of the best sweaters are draped, flyaway styles that are frequently seen on today’s hottest and most stylish celebrities. Layer ruffled fly away sweaters over a basic tee, or get the most out of your summer tank tops – even in cold weather – by wearing under a cardi.
For those extra cold weekend days, you may want to trade in your cardigan for a cozy, cable knit turtleneck sweater. If you are looking for a little more glam in a pullover style, try cowl necks, dolman-sleeved styles or sexy, form-fitting V-neck sweaters.
As you prepare your closet for the cold months ahead, be sure to stock up on sweaters of all kinds. From basic cardigans to sexy pullovers, from work to play - there is a sweater for every occasion.
