The sweater. Perhaps there is no layer that we crave more upon the arrival of the cool Autumn and Wintry days and nights than the warmth of a sweater. The word cozy certainly goes hand in hand with the knitted and woven delights of warmth paired with fashionable and classic styles of personal preferences. If the word “cozy” expresses “comfortable and warm”, sweaters provide just that. Style awaits as the winds swirl around us. Fashionable preparation of warmth. “Sweater Season”.
By definition, a sweater is a “knitted top, and knitted garments”. The history of the layer of warmth is believed to have had its knitted form created for the 19th century British fishermen. Oh, the iconic fisherman’s sweater. Although this is not a discussion of history nor how the various forms and styles of sweaters came to fashion’s forefront. Rather, a mere visual appreciation of the garment of warmth itself.
Of course,the fabrics of choice determine the effect and level of warmth one requires. Natural fabrics will serve well as investment pieces over time. Sweaters that will become perrennial go-to options time and time again. Beyond the protection from the Autumn winds or effects of cooler climates is the consideration of the fabric and style. Whether the sweater you layer yourself is the warmth of wool (Ah, the loved Merino wool sweater), cashmere (Oh, the luxurious feel and warmth!), cotton or a blend, the refined sweater will endure to be a welcomed layer within the world of our personal wardrobes. Whether this classic pullover is a V-neck, crew neck, turtleneck or other variations of sweater styles, the choice is personal. A base layer of function and style. Of course, as with any fashionable basic, the ability of sweaters to work with your wardrobe in a versatile fashion is another benefit of these layers of warmth.
Although the options, styles, fabrics and yarns of formed knitted appeal are many, the choices and options that await are indeed, personal. Choices that will endure to layer you season to season. When you invest in timeless and classic fabrics and styles, the longterm benefits of fashionable warmth will prevail in your wardrobe for years to come. Fashion’s timelessness, indeed. Yet a visual homage to the sweater awaits…colors, styles and images of fashion’s layers will undoubtedly inspire you to assess your collection of layered warmth. Perhaps, donning a sweater that has been out of sight that is now beckoning to cover you in knitted and woven warmth. Fashionably, so. The warmth of fashion’s layer, indeed….
“Fashion is what you’re offered four times a year by designers. And style is what you choose.”
Consider the layer of the sweater and its fashionable status of warmth and style. The options that are available, to meet your personal style in timeless fashion, are many. Style preferences of layered attitude. Warmth and fashion fused and united in a fashionable statement that will delight those that nestle within the cozy warmth of the wearable fitted “blanket” of style…
