Well folks, that chilly breeze is undeniable at this point. I’m always resistant to accepting that WINTER IS COMING but the fact of the matter is, I can’t escape it. My remedy for this: a column about winter wardrobe necessities. ‘Cause the freezin’ winds will be a little easier to bear if we’re lookin’ good, right?
My resistance to the chill of winter eventually gives way to the realization that I can wear my trusty sweaters again. A long sleeved, crewneck sweater is an item that is widely available at a variety of price points, prints and textiles, thus rendering it a classic in my books. The downside is they can come across as… hella boring. But fear not! I tracked down for outfits that just might change your view of ye olde crewneck.
Wild For Overalls
More trend-conscious than cowboy, I love this look from Wildfang. I’d never thought to style overalls for fall, but they look stellar with rolled cuffs and lil’ booties. Just the thing for hanging out at the pumpkin patch!
All Black E’erythang
This one is an exercise is subtlety. All black doesn’t have to mean all-bland. Masculine and cool, my favourite touch are the bright red kicks!
Tapestries and Tapered Jeans
Using a contrasting collar, a vintage ribbed pullover gets a modern update. The throw over tapestry jacket, little crew socks and a sturdy oxford make this one functional and fancy (just the way I like it).
Skirtin’ The Issue
Statement necklace? Chelsea boots? Tweedy skirt? You’re ready to rock a crewneck sweater like a Mod-Girl incarnate. Things aren’t quite as groovy these days, but damn, you look good!
So here’s to the humble crewneck, reppin’ for the seemingly modest prep in all of us.
