Ask The Man Panel: On The Fringe

This week, in response to a reader request to have the Man Panel review “something that normal people would actually wear,” I decided to get their thoughts on this fringed shawl cardigan from Forever 21.

Do Not Want: Blood-Stained Sweater

I’m all for eye-catching design, but I’d prefer that my clothing choices didn’t lead to 911 calls from concerned passersby, like this Jason Wu sweater might: “Ummm, yeah, there’s a woman in front of me in line at Starbucks, and she’s obviously bleeding out, but she doesn’t seem to notice … yeah … that’s right… More »

AE Cable Knit Studded Sweater

Every year we buy a few sweaters, but only end up wearing a couple favorites over and over.

This particular sweater is perfect for layering under a quilted vest and toning down a full mini-skirt… More »


How To Buy A Dude A Sweater He’ll Actually Like

The sweater may seem like a standard, almost impersonal gift. Done right, though, it’s the ideal present — it’s practical, attractive and will actually be used. That said, year after year of going with guy friends to return their hideous sweaters for other things has taught me a bit about how not to eff it… More »


Get Your Mitts Off My Boobs, Santa!

This is Urban Outfitters’ Grey Antics Mrs. Klaus Sweater from their special holiday sweaters collection, but I can’t figure out why anyone would want a cardigan that evokes an image of Santa Claus getting grabby with Mrs. Claus … or you. That’s gross! [Urban Outfitters] … More »

Quick Pic: Would You Wear A Cardigan As A Dress?

Rihanna went out last night wearing a long cardigan as a dress. We can’t decide whether this is a good idea. Sweaters aren’t normally long enough to cover our butts, but maybe in the winter, when tights can provide extra coverage. [NYC, 6/10/09] … More »

Style On The Street: Check Marks The Spot

Okay, so I have absolutely no idea what is going on with this girl. I am hoping that it was Halloween when this photo was taken. Either that, or she’s an actress in a horror movie and she didn’t have a chance to take off her blood makeup. That being said, her buffalo plaid cardigan… More »


You’d Look Awfully Fair In Some Fair Isle

We’re pretty sure Fair Isle is going to usurp plaid as the preferred pattern of hipsters in cold climates. Like plaid, Fair Isle isn’t stylish at first sight, but it’s just so folksy and familiar-looking that it grows on you.
