A fisherman’s sweater is a Fall favorite for me. Traditionally, these sweaters had complex cable knit patterns and they were made out of scratchy wool so that the Irish fishermen who wore them stayed warm even when they got wet from sea spray. Of course, today they are made out of softer wools, usually merino, and they come in more colors and different styles, such as turtlenecks or cardigans, but the practicality remains. The winter white color, the classic style, and the coziness factor just speak to me!
Since we’re having a real winter this year (real for Southern California at least!) I definitely have winter fashion on my mind. In fact, I don’t even have enough sweaters to get me through this many cold days since I’ve never needed this many before! However, one thing I do have, and have always loved, is turtlenecks. Most specifically, chunky turtlenecks. They’re casual, cozy, and oh-so-comfy! And they’re not just functional, but versatile, too. They can be worn in a myriad of ways, they work with everything from skirts to jeans, and they’re warm (something I’m definitely looking for these days!) And of course, a leopard bag never hurts an outfit! A cozy, cableknit turtleneck in a cream color is so timeless. A classic black turtleneck paired with jeans is my go-to winter outfit. I love that she made this sweater slightly dressier by pairing it with a leather skirt. Love the pairing of winter white with the black skinnies and loafers. So chic! With a skirt again here. Seriously chic. Black on black. You can’t go wrong. A perfect casual fall or winter combo.
