Knitwear Will Be Your Winter Salvation
Nothing quite like says winter like wrapping yourself up in a blanket by a roaring fire. Now, imagine if you could bring that feeling with you where ever you go while still looking your best. Knitwear is your solution to staying warm and comfortable all winter. With ways to style it including turtlenecks, cable knit crew necks, shawls, shawl neck cardigans, graphic sweaters, and oversized sweaters, there is something for every style.
The two most important things while looking for your knitwear is the material and fit. The fabric can either be a classic fabric such as wool, merino, and cashmere. These are classic and never go out of style. There are also the trendier more specific fabrics: cotton-blends, mohair, and Chenille yarns. The best way to choose what you want will be by getting into a store and feeling them in person, online shopping can only get you so far.
The fit is the next thing to look at. The fit is what will make or break your ability to "pull off" knitwear. Contrary to what most people believe: if you aren't as lean as you'd like to be it is better to have your knitwear closer to your silhouette. Closer to your silhouette doesn't mean it should be too tight though, it's a fine line. Another tip is that typically if you're taller and leaner than it's easier to pull off oversized and baggy sweaters.
