Style: Sweaters to Swear By


‘Tis the season for a wardrobe change.

There’s no better feeling than rocking a new sweater as chilly days aren’t far away. Local shops and boutiques were filled to the brim with stripes, camo and stars, from classic cable-knits to trend cardigans. Add a scarf and a belt and you are ready to go.
A seamless transition into fall…



Don’t sweat it!

4 EASY WAYS TO SAVE YOUR SWEATERS

Extend the life of your favorite sweaters this season (your sweaters and wallet will thank us).

1. Folding > Hanging. When storing sweaters, you should opt to fold them instead of hanging them. Placing your favorite knits on hangers can stretch out the shoulders and distort the overall shape you originally fell in love with.

2. Wash your sweaters after three to five wears & air dry only. Sweaters are similar to jeans in this way. They can take a little more wear than your more delicate items, especially because they are usually layered over other pieces. Cotton, cashmere, and silk should be washed after three or four wears, while wool and wool blends can last up to five.

3. Avoid the shrinkage. Save yourself from accidental shrinkage and skip the dryer. Lay your sweaters flat to dry no matter the material. Want to cut down on your drying time? Here’s a trick: roll your sweater up in a towel like a sushi roll, ring out the excess water, and then lay it flat.
