As the colder months come upon both the east and west coasts, it is essential for anyone to have a collection of knits in his/or her wardrobe. Sweaters may seem to all look the same but not all of them serve the same stylish purpose. For example, the maxi cardigan is one style that is among the most wanted for fall. It has been one of the sweater styles that has come and gone over the years. But this season is the time to really invest in a maxi cardigan. There is a revival of the 70s and 90s this season and a maxi sweater falls perfectly into the mix. From lightweight for the early fall weather to heavyweight for the bitter cold winter, the maxi cardigan is here to stay for the entire fall season. Try the Merci Maxi by Free people available at Macys to start your maxi cardigan collection, or the Staring at Stars Maxi by Urban Outfitters.
Oversized sweaters are another closet staple for this fall and winter season. While the maxi cardigan is perfect for early and late fall weather, oversized sweaters are essential for early and late winter weather. The chunky texture against skin keeps the body warm and toasty under a stylish wrap coat. Oversized sweaters are best paired with a fitted bottom. Such as leggings or skinny jeans. The best footwear to pair with oversized knits are over the knee boots or combat boots. Oversized knits can be found in a variety of styles and most are very bulky, so everything it is paired with should be smooth and fitted. Try the Anabelle oversized cardigan from Billabong or this oversized gray sweater from MissNY to boost your already growing sweater collection.
Before you splurge on more sweaters it is essential to do a closet edit of your sweater collection. Find out which sweaters have holes that need repair, strange smells, are bad holiday sweaters and are too small. These are all items that must be thrown away because they will get lost in the growing pile of new sweaters. When you have finished editing, stock up on the seasons latest trends by including purchases of cardigans and chunky pullovers.
