9 Chic and Classic Sweater Options For Women


We’re in full on sweater weather temps here in Connecticut. So today I want to feature these classic sweater options for women.

I’ve recently taken out my sweaters and assessed what I’m keeping and what needs to go (I found a giant hole in a long loved sweater, really hoping it’s just from a snag or pull!)

Now I’m looking to add a couple more new sweaters to my collection. It’s always nice to mix things up with my cold weather uniform.


What makes a sweater a classic?


In addition to fit and price, it’s important my sweaters feel good. I’m over trying to make wooly bulky and often acrylic blend sweaters work! No more itchy sweaters!

I’m all about investing in a few quality cashmere or cashmere blends and not having to worry about what to wear underneath.

If you love the layered look in the photo above, the sweater Irina Linovich is wearing is by ROKH  (and her sunglasses are Celine).

I happen to think the whole outfit is SO chic, I’m just not sure how a look like this one would look (and feel) under a coat or jacket…a major consideration here in New England.

I feel the same way about all the cute, long duster cardigans…how do they work under shorter coats?

But I digress…

  1. Real wool is itchy. Layer a T-shirt underneath.
    Re the long cardigans, when I worked in an office, one desk drawer was for heels and another was for sweaters. So one option is to keep your dramatic duster at work. But I also have several mid-calf coats (keep those knees warm!), and a long cardigan won’t stick out the bottom.

      So true! I don’t tend to wear longer coats anymore, because I drive SO much! Life in the suburbs. Great ideas, thanks so much! XX

      In Virginia and further down south, wool is a deal breaker many times. I buy wool sweaters and then hardly wear them, it only gets cold enough for them a couple weeks a year.
