It Is Sweater Season And We Say Welcome !

These early crisp and cool days have prompted me to pull my sweaters out of the depths of my closets. And I could not be happier. I have to admit, I am a bit biased because I am a fall girl. But allow me to convince you if you are a bit reluctant to pack away the summer frocks…

There are few other pieces that can whip an outfit together more easily than a smart sweater. Like a statement necklace, a bold cardigan or color-block pullover can draw it all together.

The best part of this season is layering. Keep that summer dress at the ready and layer over it an over-sized sweater or a thick cardigan. That is enough to keep you sans-tights for a few more weeks. One of the best options is a vintage jumper doubling as a jacket.

There are a lot of choices out there– and with this season’s trends, there is a diversity of vintage inspiration. While the re-vamps are well done these days, I recommend hunting for the real thing.

We are thankfully a bit past the ironic ugly 80’s sweater with faux fur, cut outs and stray fake pearls now that we have come to appreciate with more nuance the Aztec, tribal, and Cosby sweater option. Color block, geometric patterning is still plentiful online and in the vintage stores. But I will warn you: the urban Native American is getting tired.

You can’t miss with a sweater circa 1950-60s. The tailoring is just right, the beading is impeccable, and no one made a cardigan like they did back then. Also, with the microclimates that crop up between home, office and traffic in the transition from air conditioning to heat makes the short sleeve sweater option– and there are many from that era– the right way to go. It could be the Mad Men-ification of fashion, but putting the tucked in sweater with a thin belt is super cute. Check that video’s key suggestions.

If you are into fur, vintage is the way to go. So many fur lined options over cashmere. Very lux.

We can’t forget hand-knit either. Ladies had skills on the needles back in the day and there many priceless pieces to be found second hand. Especially in Scottish wool, which is waterproof!

Vintage knits also lend themselves well to the earthy tones– mustard and rust– that were being shown on the runway for Fall with tailored pants. But ultimately comfy needs to remain in our fashion vocabulary and a well worn sweater epitomizes comfy.

Enjoy the season as the leaves change color by airing out your vintage knits.

    I have noticed that of all kinds of insurance, health insurance coverage is the most dubious because of the conflict between the insurance policy company’s obligation to remain afloat and the buyer’s need to have insurance policies. Insurance companies’ earnings on health and fitness plans are low, so some corporations struggle to profit. Thanks for the thoughts you talk about through this blog.

    This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.
