LAYERING CARDIGAN SWEATERS
Cold weather means layered styles are a must! Our very favorite layering piece is a chunky, cozy cardigan. Not only are these ultra-soft and comfortable, but they’ll also add color, dimension and excitement to an otherwise entirely neutral look. This grey colorblocked cardigan ($98) is thick enough to keep you warm throughout the day, yet light enough to remain comfortable at the office. The black cardigan ($79), fantastic for layering over virtually any outfit, is cozy and chic. And, this mauve cardigan ($98) takes a unique twist on a neutral shade and looks fashion-forward atop a simple white button-up and medium wash denim.
BRIGHT & BOLD SWEATERS
Sometimes you simply want to make a statement, and a sweater is a perfect way to do so throughout this chilly time of year. The bold winter trends to look out for are leopard print, stripes — especially in autumnal hues — and bright fuschia. Here, we’ve featured three sweaters that fit just that. This striped sweater ($88) features a fun, slightly belled sleeve and flattering scoop neck, while this leopard cardigan ($24.99) is ideal for layering over any simple look. And why not spice up your winter wardrobe a bit with a pop of bright fuschia? This pink tunic sweater ($98) is bold and playful, yet looks ultra-polished when paired with dark denim, a simple skirt or black trousers.
NEUTRAL, EVERYDAY SWEATERS
And for every other day of the week, when you’re looking to wear something soft and cozy, yet professional and polished, these are the neutral, everyday sweaters to wear. This oversized tan sweater ($79) is a fantastic addition to your closet as it can be worn as is, tucked into some high waisted jeans or even paired with leggings and boots. Its length will keep you covered, and its style will flatter any body shape. This black off-the-shoulder option ($98) is a beautiful addition to your sweater collection. It is feminine and flirty and can be worn for both work and play. And lastly, this simple grey ribbed turtleneck ($69) is a style staple. It can be worn with any bottoms and defines timeless style.
