It is the most versatile yet stylish statement sweater. The wrap
allows access to a peak of your dress or top underneath and the tie
can be replaced with your favorite belt.
Fall is well underway and I feel that I am attracted to the same type of sweaters....They are all button up cardigans. I want to add some sweaters that are a little risky for me and make a statement.
Simple Sweater Shopper
Dear Simple Sweater Shopper,
- A good statement sweater must be flattering, have a little flair, yet stay simple. Yes simple can be good sometimes, especially with a statement piece, you don't want to go overboard and look like you tried to hard.
- Buy something that isn't too trendy. Sweaters should really be more of a quality piece than a trendy piece. The reason I say this is because in Seattle we wear a lot of layers and warm pieces. It should last this whole season, possibly the next, or stored for another year.
- For a thinner sweater with extra warmth go for one made of cashmere or alpaca. Cable knit sweaters are bulkier so careful with the layering on these pieces. The layering pieces should be a tight cotton long sleeve or a cami.
