Becasue even though it's springtime (and soon enough summertime), the temperature is known to take a dip when the sun goes down. And this lovely wool cardigan from Aubin & Wills is just the right knitwear for keeping warm and looking cool.
There's a part of me that would have loved to have been a boxer. Having been punched once as a youngster and not liking it (at all), I knew my dreams of boxing stardom had to settle for repeat viewings of Rocky and Raging Bull. But these awesome, custom hoodie bathrobes from the Vancouver-based wings + horns have me ready for the ring!
Shall we toss on a knitted sweater this season? This Fred Perry striped version has red, blue, and white and a cross-chest design accented with a logo applique. Rib knit collar, hem, and sleeves add shape and fit to an already slim fit piece. Cotton and true-to-size in sizes s-xl. [$120 at urban outfitters]
A loose, comfortable sweater is as close you can get to a thick blanket, except this one can be worn off of the couch! 100% wool holds in heat and keeps you warm, while the angled button-front closure adds a designer shape. Button front closure and ribbed trim; available in size L. I have a feeling that this one sold well, so grab the last sweater or two while you can. [$220 at revolve]
Doesn't this piece look like a jacket? It's not! All of us who are living in warmer climes will rejoice when we get to wear a snuggly wool sweater with the look of a military jacket, but with a little more sophisticated style to last you through the season. Belted waist and a regular fit add style without edging towards the OTT world of many high-fashion selections. A good compromise for the...
Blocks of artistic style are shown off in a luxe fabric that's usually put to far more boring use: see how fun mohair can be when it's in teal and black? Solid black sleeves set off a thick block design on both back and front on this lightweight piece. Available in S-XL, it's a good holiday present-- to yourself. [$248 at oak]
Sweaters aren't an inherently cool item, but they do get a boost in the right direction when they boast a drooping cowl neck and jazzy pattern. The wool/cotton blend has a great lightweight drape and ribbing at the cuff and hem. Hits at the hight hip; available in sizes s-m-l. [$420 at oak]
This sweater vest, quite frankly, trounces the other ones I've seen so far this season. It's like a graphic tee, but way warmer, and way more form-fitting to boot. Throw it on with any old t-shirt and watch it work wonders. Available in red and grey in 100% cotton for the wool-allergic types. Up to XL. [$49.50 at express]
Not all sweaters are necessities to dig out of your drawer and rip off before anyone sees you. If you've got some wormy-looking stuff left over from seasons ago, replace everything with one simple double-breasted item. Signature contrast buttons make this piece pop, and could even help you look a little wider in the chest. [$398 at ssense]
Its not jacket weather yet, but the weather forecast is looking to head south. That said, it might be wise to keep your eye on cool-weather clothing right about now. We dig this one, the Orthodox Wolfe Sweater in Charcoal. The collar and clasps make for an edgy detail to an otherwise standard sweather. Elbow cuffs extend to the wrists, and the bottom of the Wolfe sweater is styled with...
