I love a good sweater.
If clothes had emotions, the sweater would be the happiest of them all.
For me, the perfect sweaters are over-sized: draping happily over your body, leaving room for a shirt underneath, and perhaps one more person could squeeze in there too.
It’s currently sweater-weather in London.
Ignore what the week may be forecasted to look like, you can’t go wrong with an autumnal sweater. Sweaters are even more ideal if you don’t spend too much time standing outside.
For those not accustomed to sweater-wearing, don’t underestimate the power of a good sweater by throwing on just anything sweater-ish over anything you can find.
If you want to make the sweater-look a fabulous look, take time when you go sweater shopping and try them on if you can. Sometimes I get a sweater 2-3 sizes bigger than normal to get the look I want, other times my size is just fine!
Oversized sweaters go perfect with slim-fitted leggings, trousers, or jeans. Normal-sized sweaters look great with a smart shirt underneath and its collars peeping through.
So here’s to the sweater, and to my favourite styling season: autumn.
