Sweaters That Add Intrigue

cozy blonde

You have a drawer filled with basic cashmere and wool, ho hum. Of course, no one’s suggesting you don’t do wonderful things with mix and match pieces, but how about these? A little something about each one distinguishes it from its sister. Nothing incredibly expensive or outrageously avant-garde, just, well, life is in the details, yes?

Transverse Placket Sweater by Gro Abrahamsson

Isabelle loves autumn; cocoa, oatmeal, socks, ghost stories. She shops vintage but combines pieces with the occasional contemporary piece. More likely to wear this with a midi skirt and boots than pants, she’s looking for a long, cotton petticoat. And maybe bloomers. Button front with asymmetric closure and really interesting collar. Fits the form. 100% wool. Cranberry. $228.00

Herlev Sweater Coat

Julia likes things soft and feminine. The collar did it for her. The sweater makes her look longer and leaner. Mostly a browns and navy woman rather than black, she knows the piece will coordinate well. It’s a little old fashioned just like Julia. Button front, big, frilled collar, welt pockets. Despite what the image looks like, this is long sleeved. 100% wool. Available in gold, deep red, or black. On sale $89.95

Bear Printed Turtleneck Sweater (in two color combinations)

Kimberly is an outdoorswoman. She takes long walks (climbs in the spring and summer,) ice skates, skis and generally thinks the rest of us are wimps. The sweater is perfect snow bunny apparel to her. Whimsical, but not cutsie. Heavy rolled, cowl neckline, long sleeves, ribbed cuffs and hem finish. Apples, bears and flowers with small tossed letters. 100% wool. $70.99

Sea foam Extra Long Cardigan

Lilli wears pastels all year round, likes her hair loose and layers up, rather than wear anything bulky. The color here made her think wistfully of The Little Mermaid. Ah youth. Great with jeans and cords, the piece, when belted, will also look well with skirts. Lambswool. Featuring v-neck, long sleeves with ribbed cuffs. Single-breasted, button front, split sides styling, ribbed hem. Stars on the elbows. $72.99

Deep Blues

Left: Knitted Letter Dark Blue Sweater- Mia’s a casual type. She hates dressing up. Her closet is filled with things that have a sense of humor.

Right: Peter Collar Navy Blue Cardigan- Natalie dresses like Zooey Deschanel, girly and young. So far, she can get away with it. She likes the look, her husband thinks it’s sexy.

U shaped neckline with crocheted Peter Pan collar, long sleeves; transparent flower shaped buttons fasten at front; ribbed hem and cuffs. 100% wool. $70.99


Left: Patrizia Pepe CardiganPayton has style. Her friends ask for advice or emulate her. She gravitates to clothes with interesting silhouettes and natural fabrics, artisanal jewelry and unknown designers. The color of this is a real draw as well. Now where is the long pleated skirt she bought last year? Lightweight wool/silk sweater with solid crepe cowl neckline, long sleeves, snap button closure, multi-pockets. $145.00

Right: Just Cavalli Animal Print Sweater- Riley is a fashion executive. She deducts part of her work wardrobe.
