Winter time is sweater time with me. When the days get colder, there’s nothing better than to snuggle in the warm magnificence of the mesh. Sweaters are a timeless basic for almost every occasion, every woman and every style. Because you can combine sweaters in many ways and each conjure a different look. If you know the right shapes, colors and outfits, worth investing in high-quality pieces from fine material. Since the fashion designers each season offer a variety of models, it is not always easy to find the right sweaters for your basic wardrobe or the. My Tip: There are three timeless classics, which are independent of trends – an enrichment for every wardrobe between the many individual designs.
1. the classic V-neck sweater: The all-rounder for every season
A basic wardrobe without V-neck sweater is hard to imagine for me. The classic V-neck sweater is solid, very fine or medium wool thick and smooth knit. Depending on which figurative proportions you have, choose something more or waisted, shorter or longer versions and a deeper or higher v-neckline.
You are a woman with small breasts and Petite build upper body, you can access also to sweaters with round neck. The classic round-neck sweater is also one of the timeless classics of the basic wardrobe and is just like its counterpart with a V-neck.
V-neck sweater are incredibly versatile. In the Office, a pencil skirt, a classic shirt including and possibly a narrow belt at the waist to look great. But also a slacks man-style V-sweater is a suitable partner. Leisure wear him pure, with T-Shirt or blouse to jeans, leather or Chino pants. The all time favorite in combination with black evening – or Tuxedo pants, narrow glitter rock or to the 7/8 cigarette pants in silk and high heels is noble.
Another advantage of the V sweater: In fine cashmere-silk quality, he is a companion for almost every season. In the winter, you can wear a thin Turtleneck (see sweater-basic no. 2) including or a long Cardigan in the layered look. In the summer, he hangs casually over the shoulders of your T-Shirts and warm on cool evenings. The V-neck sweater is your partner for all cases and can accompany you stylishly on many occasions .
2. the thin Turtleneck Sweater: The Combi miracle for leisure and Office
In the colder months, a plain, thin knitted Turtleneck Sweater is essential for me. I own a character-oriented model that I like to wear the same in multiple colors. Also a sweater with Turtleneck is good portable almost for all figure types, as long as attention is paid on the following details:
- A crew Turtleneck stands above all women with slender neck and small bust size, often H figure types.
- Character types , as well as women with O figure and Hourglass figure should be looking for broader, larger turtleneck.
- Y figure types should prefer raglan sleeves.
I’m wearing my Turtleneck pur as well as under Blazers, jackets and long knit cardigans and ponchos. They can be combined with almost anything: flared Maxi skirt, pencil skirt, all forms of pants and even shift or sheath dresses, which are ready for winter with a turtleneck including, opaque tights and boots or booties. Even with V sweaters (see sweater-basic no. 1) and coarse knitted jumpers (see sweater-basic no. 3) can be an extremely warm outfit them. More customization ability isn’t really.
3. the chunky knit sweaters: The pattern boy with heat guarantee
Coarse knit sweaters are currently the trend. However, the trendy copies with gradients, color patterning, material combinations, applications and all possible (and even impossible in my view) motifs play. My advice: Go to very carefully with such fashionable time phenomena. Because from trendy already embarrassing in the next season will be. Select if in doubt prefer the timeless, classic chunky knit: for example, with cable pattern, ribbed or smooth surface appearance. Much wool used for thick winter sweater, so these sweaters in high-quality materials are very high-priced.
A coarse knit pullover in high quality material is the basic of your winter wardrobe that keeps you across reliably warm over the years. Depending on your sweater is more voluminous, the narrower the silhouette of the lower body should be kept. You can implement this with narrow, straight pants, pencil skirts, or just falling, calf-length skirts. Your sweater is waisted and shorter, you can access to other pants in men’s style or issued skirts. Probably you are predominantly wear such a model for casual occasions, in a combination with jeans . Chunky knit in a material mix looks nice with leather. Right now, there’s also the trend to combine chunky knit with fine, shiny and patterned or embroidered materials, such as satin, lace, Brocade, sequined or metallic Lamé, as a contrast. The result is interesting outfits which are suitable for further opportunities. One thing is certain in any case: in a classic, coarse knitted winter sweater you will have years of enjoyment.
Your sweater classics are particularly durable, if you keep in mind the following:
Buy sweaters in colors and materials that accompany long you and your basic wardrobe!
I prefer buy timeless, high-quality and high-priced classic in neutral base colors that I can combine with any accent color in my closet. Only when there are these basics in the primary colors of my wardrobe , I gradually extend the range with my favorite accent colors, such as Red or purple. The neutral colors are black, dark blue, anthracite, and light grey and Brown, camel, cream – and whites. Choose those warm or cool shades that match your color type and the existing primary colors in your wardrobe. Women with strong upper body are well advised with sweaters in darker base color. Women with slender upper body can wear bright base color.
This classic sweater in neutral colors will accompany you for very, very long time. Therefore worth investing in high quality, natural materials. With high-quality cashmere, alpaca and Merino Wool – also in mixtures, for example, with silk – you can’t go wrong.
As always: buy rather a few, high-quality and timeless basics that suit your figure and your style type to you, for your basic wardrobe. This is even truer in sweaters. Because your sweaters are life partners, who take everything with you – in the best case even though you more times bring the one or two kilos on the scales…
