After a long, hot summer, breaking out comfy, oversized sweaters is like a lovers reunion, but as winter winds on, that romance wanes. By January it seems the entire closet is cable-knit. How to keep this sartorial relationship varied and exciting?
The answer is a cropped sweater. Though appropriate for work (try this Rag & Bone sweater over a sharp button-down) and tantalizing after dark (especially when worn with a pair of high-rise skinny pants), a cropped sweater transitions between more than just day and night. It also bridges the seasons: a Dolce Vita sweater (pictured) warms up a short summer frock, and Preen cashmere recharges the jersey maxi dresses that are ubiquitous during the year’s warmer months.
