The Crafty Tipster
Cable knit sweaters have been in style since, well, forever. They were constructed strictly for warmth, knitted and hand-sewn with love by mothers and grandmothers. Today, we still can't seem to let go of these once heartfelt tokens; they're dotting runways everywhere for the fall and winter seasons.
Fashionistas of all ages are donning thick sweaters this season, and rightfully so. The more colors the better, and what better way to brighten up a chilly day? A sweater is a comfortable yet fashionable way to go out, and you can pair it with anything from jeans to leggings. Many women are now sporting them over dresses and skirts. Our beloved street photography has been inundated with knits; shots like the following have been spotted all over the internet, inspiring people to hitch a ride on the season's best trend:
As much as I like the women's sweaters, there is one thing I like much, much more ... men's sweaters! In my opinion, thick sweaters look much better when they're not form-fitting, and with men's sweaters, you can absolutely achieve this look. It is also much easier to find a plain sweater without buttons or embellishments when you shop in the men's section. Plus, they tend to be much thicker and warmer! My very favorite is Rodarte's line of mens sweaters (appropriately called "Brodarte"). The colors are fantastic, and they look SO soft and warm. It would look great with a pair of ankle boots, no?
A great place to find wearable men's sweaters is (surprisingly) at Abercrombie and Fitch and Hollister. They tend to have big, plain sweaters, and especially at Abercrombie, they're of very good quality. Check them out! Remember, men adore it when women wear their clothes ... this is the best of both worlds! So, next time you're shopping for a trendy new sweater, check the men's section. You'll make much more of a statement this way!
