Days get shorter, the air gets crisper, and just like that, fall is among us. After a long, hot Floridian summer, I could not be more ready for cooler temperatures, hot drinks and, of course, SWEATERS!
Whether you live in a more mild climate or are expecting harsher temperature changes, a cozy sweater is something that everyone can agree on.
I’ve taken the time to outline my favorite styles for both men and women this season that are sure to satisfy the trifecta of comfortable, functional and fashionable…enjoy!
Turtleneck sweaters are staples for any cold weather wardrobe, but what about the time in between? For the past few years, short sleeve turtlenecks have been popular high fashion items. This season is no exception as they are simply perfect for transitional, mild fall weather.
‘Dove Down’ is the perfect sweater if you love the feeling of being wrapped up in a cozy blanket, and who doesn’t? Long sweaters such as this can easily be worn with leggings or whatever you choose. The two-tone white and grey pattern is interesting, while also simple enough to match anything. My favorite is the detail of shawl collar and cuffing, which gives it the potential for a dressier approach. I love finding clothing that can be worn in many ways.
I’ve never been afraid to let my spirit shine by wearing bright colors and bold patterns. I was immediately drawn to the ‘Lima Dance’ for its beautiful fit, flouncy arm drapery and colorful patterns. It beautifully satisfies modern high fashion, while also referencing traditional Peruvian culture.
The ‘British Isles’ sweater is my favorite of the men’s picks from NOVICA. I love the thick-knit, classic pullover paired with traditional patching on the elbows and shoulders. Did you know that this style was inspired by 19th century English Ranger uniforms? It is also made of 100% wool to keep you warm on the coolest of days.
I have always loved men’s sweaters and could easily see myself wearing this sweater oversized with leggings and boots. Ladies, take note. It could be the perfect selfless gift for your man, that you would never, ever want to borrow. 😉
Hoodies are the perfect transitional pieces for when temperatures start to drop. They can be worn year round for cooler mornings or evenings and can be easily taken off and tied around the waist when the weather warms up. I love the unique, hand-woven cotton detailing on the ‘Mountain Adventure’ pullover. The fleece material will keep you warm and the embellishment adds a festive flair!
The style of the 1/4 zip sweater has always appealed to me. Zip up to cover your neck for maximum warmth, unzip for a cool, casual look. ‘Mountain Life’ is made of 100% alpaca wool to keep you warm while also feeling very lightweight. I love the geometric pattern in beautiful, seasonal colors!
Sweaters are an integral part of keeping you warm during the cooler months. When you shop from NOVICA, your heart will feel especially warm knowing that your purchases directly support the lives of artisans in rural areas of the world, while also helping them to perpetuate the traditions of their culture.
