the sweater report

Ask me anything   every day is sweater weather

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.

According to Google, Sonia Rykiel’s “poor boy” sweater is a shrunken-fit sweater with a short body and long sleeves, This awesome 70’s Rykiel sweater has her signature cool stripes and a cute tabard-like ruffle on either shoulder. Makes me think of the style of a turn-of-the-century street urchin!
Wear with brown shorts, knee socks and beat up vintage leather lace-up boots for the look of a little ruffian.

The cloudy space dye design on this 70’s cable sweater looks just like the view outside my office today.  What a misty, dreamy weather! It feels like the lull before a typhoon. 
Wear this sweater with some grey heather sweatpants while staying in with the family and playing mahjong to ride out the storm.

This sweater is so normcore! You can’t deny it. It’s like something an Nsync member might have worn with frosted tips or a canvas bucket hat and baggy jeans. I guess normcore is kind of synonymous with 90’s… but it’s the fashion lexicon I grew up with too so it’s the golden standard.
Wear this sweater like  a moody teenager who’s been made to move from a big city to a country town against your wishes and you march around moodily gazing at the sprawling natural vistas. That’s how we rolled in the 90’s.

I’m obsessed with stripes. This 50’s wool Jantzen sweater has that cool rockabilly-verging-on-grandpa-style look. Wear with a quiff, white jeans and leopard-print creepers for a “You wanna fight about it?” summer evening look.

I’m loving the heathery blues and mauves of this Scottish wool sweater. It’s so evocative of misty summer mornings on the moores! Wear with an olive plaid hunting cap, grey parachute silk A-line skirt and white Hunter boots for a walk with the old basset hound.

I am sailing, I am sailing, home again, across the sea… I seem to be getting a lot of musical inspiration from sweaters today! I love the flat sailboat scene on this azure blue cardigan, looking just like the model boat race on Conservatory Pond in  Central Park.

Wear with a red and white broderie striped dress and espadrilles for a 1950’s tourist-in-Italy vibe.
