I consider myself something of a pullover sweater connoisseur in that I am never not wearing one. Why wear real clothes when you can just throw a sweater on? This year, I’m loving them in warm, thick knits and relaxed crew-neck silhouettes, perfect for wearing alone or layering over collared shirts. Check out 10 of my top picks in the gallery above!
As 2012 draws to a close (we made it!), we’re narrowing down our utmost favorite celeb looks throughout the year, like these 10 stars who consistently impressed us in the hair and makeup department…
