Essential Sweaters!

These are the heavy hitters. The sweaters we pull out over and over again throughout the season for various reasons. These are the must-haves… unless you live in Miami. Then you probably only need one. 😉

#1 | The Layering Piece

We all need to have some basic crew neck long sleeve layering sweaters in our wardrobe. These are the pieces you can easily wear alone, or wear under a blazer or jacket. This sweater by Worthington is very soft, cozy, flattering… and comes in a bunch of colors!

#2 | The Cardigan

The cardigan is another must-have sweater for all of us. It not only keeps us cozy and warm, but it also slims hips, butt, and thighs. It also adds polish to your overall look. I talk a lot more about the importance of the 3rd layer in this video. And you can see other cardigan outfit ideas here.

#3 | The Turtleneck

The black turtleneck is a heavy hitter for me in the fall and winter. This one looks awesome alone or layered under a jacket. I love the balloon sleeve detail, which gives an otherwise basic piece a little something extra!

#4 | The Tunic Sweater

The tunic length sweater plays an important role in our wardrobes. It’s not only keeping our behinds warm… it also gives us more coverage! If you want to wear leggings or fitted skinny jeans, throw on a longer sweater, like this heathered green one by A.N.A., and you are good to go. This comes in six colors.

#5 | White Cable Knit

The white sweater is an absolute must-have and the cable knit is a stylish option. It’s clearly a snuggly piece, but it’s also quite feminine and lovely. This cable knit comes in two other colors. And, aren’t these gray booties SO fun?? They are surprisingly really comfy too.

I think it’s also important to have one sexy and modern sweater in your closet! This A.N.A. sweater in black cherry has some interesting cutouts on the sleeves, which makes it a real standout! The color is also pretty bold and makes a statement.

#7 | The Apres Ski Sweater

You will wear this gorgeous A.N.A. sweater curled up by the fire with your hot toddy or after a day of skiing. Side note, one of the benefits of living next to a ski trail, you never ski a full day. You ski for a couple of hours here and there. It’s awesome!
