Sweater Weather: Knitware to cozy up to

Lately, I’ve noticed that pulling a sweater over my head has become almost as much a part of my morning routine as pushing start on the coffee maker. Soft, textured, oversized—there are so many beautiful knits I’d happily cozy up in out there.

Here are some that have caught my eye recently…

Not a sweater, per se, but big enough to be worn like one: I’m loving these Argentina-made oversized scarves, in all of their earthy tones (and everything about the styling here).

For a similar look, try this two tone long scarf. (And yes, that hat is amazing, but not for sale on their site. I tried to find a similar one, and came across this and this.)

I’ve long loved the Colorfleck look, every since I used to borrow my dad’s in the ’80s. I have this sweater in the lighter grey and it’s one of my favorites. Now I’m wishing for the darker one, too.

(This new crewneck box-cut one is really cute, too!)

I’m drawn to all things rust-tone these days. This sweater is no exception.

The Pom-pom look seems to gain momentum with Misha & Puff’s popcorn sweater. I haven’t gone for it, but what I like about best about it is all the tone-on-tone texture, so I tried on the top cardigan at Madewell the other day, and it’s nice how the open front breaks it up a bit. The second option here takes that tonal texture in a more subtle direction.

Still, if popcorn is what you’re after, here’s a modified take on the trend from Anthropologie.

A Knotted Waist is perfect for showing off all those high waisted jeans, and the slimmer cut works well with the wide-leg ones. This one comes in lots of colors.

Speaking of color, a gorgeous color for this mockneck.

To be honest, my most-reached-for basic is a black cashmere crewneck that I got years ago from L.L. Bean for a trip to Yosemite. It’s so warm and soft—I’m not sure why they stopped making it in basic black. But I found a few other Cashmere options that look tempting:

Like, NotMonday’s Essential V-neck, above.

Or these gorgeous basics by Naadam (unisex, and so many colors at a great price point) and Everlane.

Under “Splurge,” my wishlist would definitely include this Dôen sweater. (That lead photo of the gorgeous handknit Ulla Johnson sweater also fits in this category.)

And for a “save,” here are two good-looking, chunky classics—from Urban Outfitters and a well-reviewed one from Amazon.

Which would you choose? Any favorite knitwear sources to add? 

P.S. Relaxed Denim and last year’s sweater round-up.
