Cold weather doesn’t mean you have to look frumpy or buried under layers. Look posh and sophisticated this season with these attractive, warm sweater styles.
The warm and woolly one
Some days you just want to wrap yourself up in something you know will keep you warm no matter what. This heavy knit cardigan from Jacob will do just that (jacob.ca, $99). Or if you want something that’s a little more form-fitting but still offers the same amount of warmth, check out this cable-knit sweater from Smart Set (smartset.ca, $30).
The cozy yet sleek one
Who says sweaters can’t be sexy? You have every right to be warm and toasty and still feel like a lady. And fortunately there are plenty of styles this season to let you do just that. This cardinal surplice sweater from White House Black Market is absolutely va-va-voom (whitehouseblackmarket.com, $94)! Whether you wear it to work, a holiday function or anything in between, you’re bound to make jaws drop.
The funky patterned one
Gone are the days of wearing baggy grey sweaters and black hoodies. It’s more than possible to be warm and still make a fun fashion statement. All kinds of patterns can be found out there this season, from bold polka dots to crisp lines. If you’re looking for a classic, check out Smart Set’s Fair Isle sweater (smartset.ca, $40). Can’t go wrong there! Or if you’re in the mood for something a little more daring, consider Forever 21’s Intarsia striped sweater (forever21.com, $28).
The long and stylish one
If you love showing off your legs, winter can be a frustrating time. But with so many stylish leggings and tights out there these days, there’s no need to restrict yourself to boring pants. And a long sweater that falls anywhere between mid-thigh and just above the knee is the perfect wintery complement to your favourite pair of tights. This polo-neck sweater from H&M may be just the warm and bright addition you’re looking for (hm.com, $30).
The business casual one
Sometimes you know you need to get a little dressed up, but you can’t bring yourself to wear anything that won’t keep you blissfully warm and toasty. That’s OK! Plenty of sweaters this season have the big, woolly feel but are cut in attractive designs, so you can have the best of both worlds. This Aran-knit double-breasted cardigan from Zara, for example, will have you feeing cozy and sophisticated (zara.com, $50).
