For the love of sweaters!! Will always tells me that I do not need another one, but I tend to disagree. Sweaters are what I have the most of in my wardrobe. My cousin Sophie once said that a great sweater is like an old friend. They should feel cozy, reliable, comforting and make you feel great. Yesterday I put my heavier winter sweaters to bed for the season but I kept my colorful cashmere ones out because they will be so useful on chillier spring days and summer nights.
Sweaters are all about the fit for me. I like my sweaters to be fitted (loosely is fine), a certain length, and most of mine are one color (i.e. pink, camel, cream, etc.). I do have a few with stripe detail which I love and I am always on the hunt for a special one — have my eye on this bad boy. Where to begin with building a collection of trusty friends? I would say that you should begin with neutrals, and then pick a few more special statement pieces.
The third sweater in this set is a lifer — a great neutral timeless piece. Same with the second but it’s especially cool because you can wear it two ways (with or without the turtleneck). The first I love and can’t wait to get in the fall, and here is a piece that is similar and available now. Number 4 is my favorite, the sweater I am wearing in the first pic is also Tibi — not many sizes left here! The last four are really fun and personal preference, I adore them all.
I also love more sporty/masculine sweaters again as long as the fit is right. I picked up this striped number above in St. Tropez last summer and haven’t been able to find it online but love these similar pieces (not all of which are masculine!):
