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…

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]…

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]…

Crave: Fleece Biker Jacket

This bright blue, fleece sweater jacket from Silence & Noise is perfect for the impending spring weather, and would look great roughing up a structured dress or warming up a denim mini and T-shirt.

Crave: Three-Button Sweater

The winter is all about layering, but it takes skill to not look like the Marshmallow Man. This three-Button Sweater satisfies both needs. Made of wool and angora, it will keep you warm when worn over a long-sleeve shirt, and its short sleeves won’t add bulk under your winter coat. Plus it pairs well with…

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 cardiga…

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.

Fashion Slideshow: Cardigans

This fall season the cardigan is making a statement. And that statement is: “Anything goes.” Whether stripes, bubble sleeves or silk-trim, the cardigan has definitely been updated. But don’t fret, old standbys–like a simple, over-sized cardigan–still feel current.
