There are not a lot of clothing items that look equally good on and are equally loved by so many different types of people. Young to old, men to women, large to small, cozy winter sweaters are loved by all, and for good reason! The reasons why we love sweaters so much are pretty much endless, but we’ll try to narrow it down a bit. Here are our top five reasons why we can’t live without our cozy winter sweaters.
You’ll be hard-pressed to find an item of clothing that is just as warm and cozy as a winter sweater. It doesn’t really matter if this is your first experience with a cashmere sweater, or if you’ve been basing your wardrobe around cozy winter sweaters since before you can even remember. Once you fall into the comfort that only a winter sweater can provide, you’ll never love another. It’s like wearing a blanket, except that blanket has been tailored to fit you perfectly for full-body comfort that you won’t be able to find anywhere else.
Do a bit of people-watching. That lady over there with the white Oxford shirt under her cable sweater. That woman walking this way in her cotton sweater and fashionable scarf. Oh! The one rounding the corner in her cami, cashmere cardigan, and pencil skirt. They all have one thing in common thanks to winter sweaters: style! Sweaters will always be one of the most versatile pieces in your wardrobe; you can easily dress them up with a sharp skirt one day, then lounge around the house in the same sweater and jeans the next! There’s no end to the outfit possibilities with a couple of cute sweaters in your closet.
With no regard to the change of the seasons, we love to wear winter sweaters. You’ll find them draped over beachgoers, fanning out at football games, snuggling snowman makers, and even flying fancy kites. Winter sweaters truly are friends you’ll let tag along no matter what season your calendar claims it is. Lightweight cardigans are especially great for all-day wear because you can bring them with you anywhere just in case things get a little chilly. Because they aren’t super bulky, you can stash one in your canvas tote, tuck it into a carry-on for the plane, or even drape it elegantly around your shoulders. Cardigan sweaters make sure that you are ready for anything.
Cotton sweaters are my go-to for staying warm without getting too hot. Everyone is different though. Their ability to be everything to everyone is what makes sweaters so amazing. A cozy winter sweater can be blended wool for one person, 100% cashmere for another, or cotton for someone like me. Winter sweaters are so varied that no matter what you are looking for, chances are, you’ll be able to find it in the warm embrace of a cozy winter sweater. A well-stocked wardrobe will have sweaters in many different weights so that there is something soft and comfortable to wear all year long.
While heavy, bulky sweaters are always in style, they aren’t always the right piece for the job. Having sweaters that are thin enough to be layered over shirts or under coats and jackets but are still warm enough to keep you comfortable all day long are a must-have if you live in cooler climates. Even if you don’t, it’s always nice to keep a thinner cardigan on hand just in case the restaurant or movie theater is a bit chillier than you expected. One of the best things about Lands’ End sweaters is that you can easily pack them in loads of different places where they will be ready and waiting when you need them. People might say that diamonds are a girl’s best friend, but mine would definitely have to be my favorite Lands’ End sweater!
