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] Keep reading »
Topshop is joining forces with German-born designer Markus Lupfer once again, hot on the heels of the success of his previous eight collections with the retailer. This time around, Lupfer is offering his iconic sweaters in a lightweight fabric, emblazoned with oversized sequin images. There’s a pineapple, parrot, heart, bow, and lips to make pop-art lovers smitten, including the Rolling Stones fan. These sweaters will definitely help transition your wardrobe from summer into fall. And don’t be shy about wearing sequins in the day because sparkling is totally appropriate during the daylight hours now. But looking like Vanna White isn’t, so I’d pair these with simple leggings or skinny or straight leg jeans. The Markus Lupfer sweaters are currently available online for £85 (about $145), but will be in stores Aug. 25. Keep reading »
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] Keep reading »

The bad ass-ness of a biker jacket, the comfort of a sweatshirt — sounds awesome to us!

The only negative? Your rejected cardigans will be sad. [$68, UrbanOutfitters.com] Keep reading »
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 work and weekend wear. [$69.50, Express] Keep reading »
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 is great.

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. And when you’re wearing a snowflake- or animal-patterned sweater, you’ll fit right in, whether you’re sipping a hot toddy après-ski or chopping down trees. Keep reading »
