Don't sweat it

Is your sweater rotation feeling a bit tired? We still have another six weeks of winter according to the groundhogs, so it's a nice time to change it up. Given the wide variety of shapes and colors out there, you really can't have too many sweaters. A few favorites from this season profiled below.



Jen loves a stripe. It's a basic-not-basic look. And a roomier crewneck like those above are flattering on almost all body types. At left, the white/navy stripe by J. Crew is a less expensive option that will be great to transition into spring (try it with the Nili Lotan "Jenna" pant) and even summer half-tucked into a pair of shorts. At center, this red striped sweater (now on sale!) by Plan C would be great with jeans right now. Plan C is a newer label launched by the daughter of Marni's founder and you can tell. It definitely has a cool vibe and we will be featuring more of their pieces soon. At right, the black and white, wool-cashmere sweater by La Ligne is another cozy one to wear now. La Ligne was started by three women designers and has become a hit on Instagram.


A turtleneck is another classic look. Here we have three stepped-up versions with a modern vibe. At left, the navy is quintessential Nili Lotan. She knows how to bring a casual sexy vibe to anything, even a turtleneck - not typically known for its sex appeal! Her navy cashmere version is slightly sheer and slouchy and will last for a long time (it comes in army green and black as well). A great layering piece under a blazer or half tucked into a pair of trousers.


In the middle, another piece by Plan C, this burgundy turtleneck is also slightly sheer and has cutouts at the hem on both sides. Love this color with charcoal, black, navy or denim.


Vince makes the wool cashmere sweater at right and it is a special one, especially in this navy color. The cut is very elegant and it has a pretty button detail at the cuff. It could easily be by Co or a similar luxury brand. It's a great quality for the price.


This Cos sweater is the ultimate, basic layering piece. It's sheer and pretty with a lightweight tank underneath. Try it under a vest or blazer or under a winter dress. The length in the body and sleeve is just right.


And for a casual-luxe look, check out this relaxed piece by James Perse. It's like a better version of a baseball-tee, and in cashmere.
