Chic- and- cosy
Ten sweaters to wrap up in this winter
The holiday gifting season likely saw at least one or two gift cards sent your way. So, we thought you might like a little help spending them.
A stylish knit is always a safe bet during the cold- weather season — especially when you call Canada home.
We asked Verna Ursua Brown, director of product for Vancouverbased Aritzia, if there can ever be too many sweaters in one’s closet.
“Definitely not,” she says. “Particularly living here in Canada, we have plenty of time — and cold weather — to experiment with a range of sweaters.”
So, why not add something to your sartorial collection that you’re sure to wear on repeat.
It’s sure to be a worthwhile purchase, especially if you’re able to invest in a material that’s going to last.
“The most important thing to consider is fabric,” Ursua Brown advises.
“Sweaters made from high- quality materials like wool and cashmere blends have greater longevity. We make many of our sweaters from fine Merino wools and premium Italian yarns to ensure that they last.”
When you’re poised to pay a bit more for a knit piece, Ursua Brown says it’s also important to consider the cut of the sweater, because you’re going to want it to stick around for a while.
“Think about the style of investment pieces,” she says. “Anything too trend- driven may feel dated by next winter. Timeless, classic fits are a safer bet.”
