Womens Sweaters

Womens sweaters are comfortable, cozy fashion pieces that add texture to your outfits. Turtlenecks, cardigans and basic pullover sweaters are examples of timeless and flexible sweater styles that are pretty much your important closet essentials for Fall and Winter. Cottons for summer, wools for winter and cashmere as an all-around.

If you're like me and love wrapping yourself in a sweater or live in a cool climate like I do then you can never have too many of these cozy garments!

Basic sweaters can be used as blank canvases where you can lay your favorite accessories and create different looks with the same piece. I just love how you can effortlessly do a transition from summer to fall-outfit by layering for example a cardigan and tights with your dresses and skirts!

They're also your quick-fixes when you want to balance out or tone down a too-flashy outfit or just need something simple to throw on when you’re late for work.

With me, I tend to buy basic sweaters and cardigans in heaps, but I make sure to add the occasional boho or print cardigan. My tip to you is to buy cardigans because they're easier to throw on with whatever (especially basic tops) compared to closed sweaters that limit your options.

Now let's take a look at the sweater-topics I'm covering:

A V-neck is one of the most flattering necklines that works with most body figures.

The pointy V-shape helps draw the eye up and down, visually creating a lean and elegant silhouette on your body figure. The slimming neckline makes your torso slim and longer.

How to Buy Womens Sweaters

Before you buy a sweater, make sure you've gained a basic knowledge of what the different fabric terms mean to ensure that you're buying a quality garment – as well as what details to look for and what styles look best with your body figure and personal style.

How to Get the Most Out of Your Sweaters

Don't be afraid in investing in print sweaters, black and white print cardigan by Macy's

My best advice to you is to secure the wardrobe sweater essentials first and then focus on sweaters that are basic in color (solids will do good too) and style, and then add the trendier (with prints and other fancy details) ones after that.

Simply put, you'll get the most for your buck with versatile womens sweaters that can be easily transformed into different outfit combinations - just by switching the belts, scarves, bags and jewelry!

However, never be afraid to try other styles that look stylish and up-to-date. Fashion should be a reflection of yourself and your true personal style :-)

So create a fashionable statement with a colorful sweater with interesting details like gold buttons, pockets, prints, fabric texture or other fun details.

If you want to squeeze out every potential outfit combination, then put most of your money in cardigan sweaters - they're more versatile than for example turtlenecks and pullover sweaters because they open front style makes it easier for you to match with your other tops. (Well, unless you're big on wearing accessories and prefer wearing them as a fashion statement on a blank canvas)
