I remember growing up how much I used to hate wearing any type of sweater that my mom used to lay out for me. I felt it made me look like a tiny bug about to explode. But my mom bless her, always sang to me that ‘better safe than sorry’, so dress up kid, and sweat your heart out. So you get why for quite some time, I disliked sweaters of any kind. Up until I grew up (well, that’s debatable), and found myself embracing their look and utility. Also I think sweaters have become a major look for the past years. Now I have officially signed onto the Sweater club.
Below are 6 amazing sweater types that you can wear this rainy season:
The bigger the better you know. Who ever said size does not matter, clearly never wore or seen a sophisticated boho-chic oversized sweater paired with anything, especially skinny pants, jeans, OR miniskirts.
Are quite the deal this season, which is perfect because they can go from office hours to late night dinners or even cocktails? They look so fabulous, yet have a certain effortlessness to them, sort of like saying ‘I just threw this on and here I am.’ Silver & gold styles are the best
The 70s pals! Or just a great solution to hide from the cold. From loose to skin tight, to roll or messy turtlenecks they’re all in, whether on oversized or tight sweaters, they do the style trick. To get that gorgeous look everyone is buzzing about these days, tuck your hair in
These are the best fashion invention ever. For freezing temperatures. For fat days. And being in right now makes them okay not just for weekends or mountain trips, but for everyday no matter the occasion. A little half tuck always gives a bit of chicness to the look and waist definition.
Pastels or powdered sweaters
Crazy prints and funky patters step aside, it’s time for monochromatic style, for muted colours, for pastels and dainty hues to rule this autumn. Whites, blues, pinks, and tons of greys are invading the streets and the shops. I call it the Sanguine kind of sweater. Besides, they carry a bit more class and sophistication to them.
One colour sweaters
Okay, so patterns and prints may not be so hot this fall that does not mean we can’t wear them though. If you are looking for simplicity but beautiful one colour sweater is your pick .
