No matter what the season, a trusty sweater is a must year-round. Perfect to layer in winter or draped over the shoulders to lunch on a spring day – sweaters have become the essential choice of upper wear for the ages.
Coming in different types of fabrics, styles and cuts the most popular sweaters will be found made from wool or cashmere. A classic crew or turtleneck sweater can make any outfit come together, basically, it’s the classy cherry on top. But just because this same type of sweater has been worn through the decades doesn’t mean we can’t have fun with new styles, calling the new and on-trend quarter zip, popular for everything from going to the gym to a day in the office. That’s the thing that makes the sweater one of our favourite essentials period. It’s an investment you can wear year in and out, no matter your age, body type and ever-changing style.
Made for sports and gym-goers, the sweatshirt has had a rebirth thanks to Covid and Gen Z. Usually paired with some bike shorts (an ode to Princess Diana), the sweatshirt really came to popularity in the 80s and seems to be a keeper even if a gym day isn’t a part of your schedule.
