the sweater report

Ask me anything   every day is sweater weather

Sometimes I think it’s too bad the overly girly feminine looks, as demonstrated by this lavender 80’s skirt set, is no longer a popular style. Think Jessica McClintock’s romantic, country Gunne Sax dresses in the 70’s or Molly Ringwald in “The Breakfast Club”. Nowadays everything is so flashy.. I feel a bit nostalgic for this fashion!
Wear this lovely set with brown boots and plenty of yellow roses in your hair.

This 80s mohair sweater is adorable! I like its low-key, almost childlike silhouette and neopolitan ice-cream color scheme. It has a very “The Babysitters’ Club” feel to it; just imagine it with acid-wash jeans and a cheery scrunchie. Or layer over a turtleneck shirt and cords for a very nerdy look. Why am I talking about layering? It’s 28 degrees out!

Amazing! I love this almost puritanical fashion. “Sobere luxe”.

Fabulous darling! Such “understated luxury”. Can’t you just see this 70’s linen jumpsuit on a jet-setting lady like Edina from “Absolutely Fabulous” or Samantha Jones from “Sex and the City” when they decide to take a holiday to a Moorish landscape?  
Wear with a giant floppy hat and lace-up leather sandals to explore some ancient Roman forts (and get into glamorous shenanigans, of course).

It’s so hot today! What’s a sweater girl to do? 
Stay cool and demonstrate your knit-loving credentials with this kooky 90’s Liz Claiborne linen top. I love the seed stitch panels contrasted with the melange yarn and arrow patterns. The raglan design means this kind of design could be easy to make in your own colors, too!
Wear with high-waisted cut-off Levi’s and plimsolls and get moving!

I’m loving the wallpaper floral design of this sweater. It’s got a fresh color scheme that takes it away from fusty and a little bit into the realm of kitsch… but all in good fun!
Wear with blue-and-white gingham cropped pants and plimsolls for a cheery spring day.

The color of this 80’s Aran sweater is amazing! Such a clear sky blue. What a beautiful day~ I love the seller’s description of traditional Aran pattern symbolism: 
"The sweater incorporates traditional Aran stitches including the honeycomb (represents the hardworking bees), diamonds (wealth and success), moss stitches (good harvest - abundance and growth), and cables (fisherman’s ropes - safety and good luck at sea)."
Wonderful! Wear with navy blue cotton velvet pants and Red Wing boots for prosperity and luck in your work.

This 80’s Irish wool sweater is perfection. I love the wonky argyle and the teddy-bear vibe. The wonkiness just makes it so much less serious and so much more cute!
Wear with baby yellow jumbo corduroy pants and burgundy brogues for a comfy goofy look.
