During the winter months wearing sweaters becomes a necessity. First of all, a sweater will keep you warm but also it will add weight to a skinny physique and streamlines to a large figure.
I am sure you already have some sweaters in your wardrobe, try to mix them with shirt, t-shirt, jacket. If you want to show some style, add a tie or a bowtie. Sweaters are one of the best items of clothing that a man can own, so choose them wisely. Pick good quality fabrics like cashmere, the counterfeit sweaters are a poor investment, it’s better you wait for sales to buy them from reputable merchants.
Let’s be practical and let’s find some tried and tested outfits.
Sweater over a shirt is one of the best mixes for a smart casual look. Just remember that the collar of your shirt should remain tucked inside the sweater and not rest on the top. Also, if it is too cold add a suit jacket. It works very well with jeans and trousers. And the majority of men own this garmen in their wardrobe.
As the name implies, the distinguishing feature is the “V” cut neckline. A perfect pair will be with a shirt; if you go for something stylish, add a tie or a bowtie. It is better to leave a V-neck sweater with a large cut for the ladies.
It is still an excellent alternative to the traditional suit and tie. A dark colored, well-fitted quality turtleneck sweater paired with dark trousers will make almost any man look thiner, taller, and more stylish. It can be worn with a suit, with a sports jacket, denim jacket, leather jacket, or, if you choose a turtleneck from woollen material, simply by itself.
I don’t know how many of you tried to mix this type of sweater with a dress shirt and a tie, but the result is very stylish. This pairying will move the attention on your face. I see this garment worn with t-shirt which does not work, but if you want to wear it at the office, add an elegant touch.
#Crew neck sweater
The temperature is very low, so blend a wool crew neck sweater with a tweed shirt or just a t-shirt and you will achieve a beautiful casual look.
One of the most versatile items from a man’s wardrobe – the cardigan. It is a perfect choice if you want to replace a suit jacket and still look elegant. Pair it with a shirt for an office outfit or with a t-shirt for a casual look.
In conclusion, a sweater has a practical use by keeping you warm and a stilish one by changing the monotonous wearing of dress shirts and trousers to the office.
And about the „lovely” sweater vest – leave it for your grandfather 🙂
