All About Designer Sweaters
Great fitting women’s designer sweaters should be part of every women’s cold-weather wardrobe. Sweaters are perfect for layering and are soft and cozy on their own. Choosing the right sweater is a matter of style and material.
People have used wool for garments for thousands of years because it’s naturally water resistant, durable, and warm. When choosing designer sweaters, you’ll pick from pullover sweaters or cardigans in weaves including cable, felted, or woven. There are many materials to select from, including lambswool, cotton blends, merino, and cashmere sweaters.
Merino wool has been a weaver’s choice since the 12th century. The merino wool is moisture wicking, making it a diverse material for designer sweaters. When combined with cotton, merino makes a light sweater for early fall and late spring.
Lambswool takes its name from the lambs it’s sheared from. Lambswool is soft and can be tightly woven into women’s designer sweaters for added warmth. Cashmere sweaters have long been a luxurious choice for cardigans and pullover sweaters. The fiber comes from goats and is much finer and softer than wool from sheep, making it one of the softest sweater materials around.
Modern Materials and Design Options
Manufacturers make designer sweaters from cotton blends or synthetic materials. Cotton sweaters are warm but breathable, allowing for moisture evaporation. Synthetic blends are durable, stain resistant, and less expensive.
Women’s designer sweaters come in a range of styles, from standard pullover sweaters to cardigans. Pullovers feature a crew neck, long sleeves, and ribbed cuffs at the wrists and waist. V-necks and turtleneck sweaters are similar to crewnecks at the wrists and waist, but not at the neckline. Sweater vests are normally worn over a long-sleeved, buttoned shirt. Cardigans double as light jackets with zippered or buttoned fronts.
Women’s designer sweaters feature a variety of woven patterns and designs from colored yarn. Many weaves are self-explanatory, like the cable, honeycomb, and braided pattern. The tighter the weave, the warmer designer sweaters are.
Yarn comes in every color of the rainbow, and sweater makers have been expressing artistry in these garments for years. From landscapes to holiday scenes to geometric patterns, there are designer sweaters for every taste.
Classic stripes or argyle patterns are a great way to accent solid colors. Pair a classic gray or black cardigan with slacks and a white top for a seamless work look. Combine a patterned or brightly colored cardigan over capris for a fun spring outfit. Jazz up a midi-skirt with cashmere sweaters in a soft color for date night sultriness.
