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.”
