Sweater Safe Than Sorry

Sweater Safe Than Sorry, October 2013, Cardigan, Sweater, Keep Warm

Living in Bombay has its perks and er… pitfalls! It’s just that the city never really gets as cold as I’d like it to be during the winter months! (I’m choosing to ignore mentioning all the other serious pitfalls this city carries on its shoulders.) Even so, that doesn’t stop me from throwing my light-weight knits all over the place. And it’s true that I have an odd fondness for winter wear, irrespective of the season – blazers, cardigans, coats, jackets, scarves and sweaters, uh-huh! Before I bring out all the heavy gear, I thought we could start with the most basic knit (see picture). The carelessly classic pullover sweater! They’re snuggly without being overbearing, come in all kinds of silhouette shapes and yet they can be tons trendy – you can experiment with colours, prints (animal print is sooo fetch, this year!), styles and textures (er, cashmere?).

{ What’s in each of the pictures? 1. Troian Bellisario as Spencer Hastings (Pretty Little Liars); 2. Fine-knit Sweater, H&M; 3. Leo Pullover, Anthropologie; 4. Julie Sariñana of Sincerely Jules; 5. Chelsea Girl Tiger Head Jumper, River Island; 6. Easy Rider Sweatshirt (in Cream), Forever 21; 7. Slouchy Angora Jumper (in Pink) by Boutique, Topshop; 8. That’s a three-fourth picture of ME rocking my whale print sweater from Zara with my dinosaur necklace from Accessorize! }

P.S. The Chelsea Girl tiger head jumper from River Island gets my vote for Sweater of the Year! For starters, I love its vintage vibe in the form of the retro tiger head print, plus I can think of ten ways to accessorize with and style it – think choker necklaces and sling-purses with a pair of pleather leggings or ripped denims (ooh, and high-top sneakers!).
