Then Lloyd complements the cop and says "Yeah, killer boots, man!"But seriously, a few good pullovers are a must for any wardrobe in an area that gets chilly in the winter. The pullover is soft and comfy and yet can look cool and casual or neat and pulled together, depending on what kind you put on.

But seriously, a few good pullovers are a must for any wardrobe in an area that gets chilly in the winter. The pullover is soft and comfy and yet can look cool and casual or neat and pulled together, depending on what kind you put on. There are just so many different pullovers out there and even more ways to wear them!

History of the Pullover

Humanity has been making garments from wool since 3000 B.C.E. Wool is naturally insulating, water-repellent, durable, and even sometimes anti-microbial making it perfect for winter wear. It was sometime in the 15th Century that knitted tunics were first made on the British isles of Guernsey and Jersey; leading to the English name jersey. The knitted garments were created by the wives of sailors and fishermen out of natural wool. As natural wool retains its oil, it protects the wearer well against the cold even when damp.

The usage of the jersey made its way throughout Europe, particularly among workingmen. By the 1890s it was accepted by athletes in the United States. Americans today call it a sweater where many British people call it a jumper. (In America, a jumper is a sleeveless, collarless dress meant to be worn with a blouse. It's what the British call a pinafore.)

Pullovers were the first type of sweater. They were worn before and after athletic events to keep the player from getting chilled. Designers such as Jeanne Lanvin and Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel introduced sweaters in their line-ups in the Twenties. Lana Turner made the sweater more fashionable by wearing a close-fitting knit sweater in the 1937 film They Won't Forget. And they didn't! In the Forties and Fifties, the term "sweater girl" was used to refer to a woman with a curvaceous figure that looked good in a sweater. She was sexy, yet sophisticated. All through the Twentieth Century, more varieties of sweaters made from both natural and synthetic fibers were introduced.

Types of Pullovers

There are just so many appealing options to choose from! We have sweaters that will adhere to any woman’s fashion sense. We’ve assembled a quorum of some of the best sweater styles you’ll want to add to your wardrobe. We've even thrown in a few tips for styling them for your ideal look.

Sweater

"Sweater" is a broad term covering long sleeved garments made of a knit or crocheted material. Pullovers, as opposed to cardigans, are pulled over the head. Hence the name. Made of knit fabric, the sweater is very elastic, making it conform to the shape of the body. They are perfect for a layered look in the winter.

Sweatshirt

Invented in 1920 by college quarterback Benjamin Russell Jr., the sweatshirt is made from thick cotton jersey material. It's as warm as wool but more breathable and less itchy. In the Sixties, Universities saw sweatshirts as an advertising tool, branding them with their names and logos. Sweatshirts today are a great way to express yourself in a fun way.

Hoodie

It is indeed a pity that such a practical garment has gained a bad reputation as attire for criminals. A hoodie is everything the sweatshirt is plus the convenient hood option to protect your hair and face from wind and rain and sometimes front pockets that can be used as a muff. Offset the criminal stereotype by wearing them with fitted jeans without any destruction. If you go into a store, bank or other place of business that requests lowering a hood, it is best to comply.

Styles of Pullovers

The overall fit and texture of a sweater can affect the entire look. Keep these basics in mind.

Oversized

If you want to be cozy yet cute, pair an oversized sweater with a tailored bottom such as well fitting skinny jeans. A relaxed skirt will also do. Present a contrast in textures. Watch the sleeves so that you don't look like some cutesy anime character. ("Oha Lucky!")

Cable Knit

The cable knit creates a sweater with a patterned texture of thick braid work. The resulting fabric is more dense and less flexible than is typical. They are often associated with men's wear, but the lady can pull it off too. Wear them with wide legged jeans and contrast brights with darks.

Chunky Knit

This sort of knit is more associated with blankets than sweaters, but it's not unheard of. These sweaters look great with pencil skirts and close-fitting jeans. A sweater large enough to be worn as a dress can be paired with contrasting leggings and a belt to give the garment some shape.

Sweater Vest

This is associated more with men's fashion than women's but have a cute, preppy sort of look. Wear it with a nice dress shirt. You can add a necktie for an androgynous look or frill it up with a silk scarf. Interestingly, what Americans call a vest, the British call a tank top and vice versa.

Material

Generally, sweaters are made out of soft and warm material. Wool is thick and warm but cotton is more breathable.

Cashmere

This fine wool obtained from the neck hairs of the Cashmere goat just screams luxury. It's not only three times as insulating as sheep's wool but finer, lighter, stronger and softer. First manufactured in the cold, mountainous regions of Mongolia and Nepal, Cashmere found its way to America in 1947 where it quickly caught on as a status symbol.

Wool

Wool has been used as a textile since the domestication of the sheep. This natural fiber is obtained from sheep, goats and some breeds of rabbits. 

Wool tends to be bulky causing it to hold air and retain heat better than most fabrics. Wool is highly absorbent and flame retardant. Wool from Merino sheep is particularly popular because it's so fine and soft.

Cotton

Touted as "the fabric of our lives" this soft and fluffy fiber grows in bolls on cotton shrubs. The bolls are spun into yarn or thread that is woven into a textile that is soft and breathable. It has been cultivated since antiquity but modern technology has lowered production costs, making its use more widespread. It is often blended with other fibers, both natural and synthetic.

Pattern

When considering your overall ensemble it is good to keep the pattern of your sweater in mind. This could make or break your look!

Solid

A solid colored sweater is appropriate for a business casual look. You can look comfortable but still neat and professional. You can wear it with a patterned skirt or contrasting slacks and a patterned scarf.

Striped

According to SpongeBob SquarePants, the right time to wear a striped sweater is all the time. Well, maybe different stripes for different occasions! The Breton stripes are for casual outings with boyfriend jeans and a paisley scarf. For a more professional look, layer stripes with solids. Horizontal or vertical? Why not diagonal? Diagonal stripes will make you look more curvy where vertical stripes will make you look taller.

Print

Now that Frozen has a sequel out, Sami patterns, snowflakes and rosemåling are going to be popular. Geometric prints are a bit retro but making a comeback. Got a favorite animal? You can celebrate it with a sweater depicting your furry friend. Tie-dye, floral prints and paisley are all fun and colorful patterns for sweaters. Pair your bold prints with blacks and whites to really make them stand out.

Logo

What better way to let everyone know who you're wearing than to emblazon it across your chest? But it's not just fashion designers putting their logos on pullovers! Let people know what your favorite fandom is by wearing a sweater bearing its trademark. For an artistic look, you can wear a sweater that blends text with images in the style of Kruger or Lichtenstein.

Neckline

The whole appeal to a sweater can be the neckline.

Turtleneck

The turtleneck collar extends to the lower jaw and can be rolled back. It's a staple for business casual attire.

Crew

The crew neck is round and collarless. It's great for a layered look.

Round

A round neck is a looser fit than a crew neck. A very low round neck is a scoop neck.

V-neck

As the name suggests, the neckline is shaped like a letter V. It is best paired with collared dress shirts, ties and scarves.

Colors

Always think about what color works best for you.

This is the color for an elegant and mature look. It's very slimming.

This is a neutral color that goes with anything. Try not to match your skin tone too much or people will think you're walking around naked.

This creates a softly elegant look. Silver in particular is stunning.

Nothing says "I'm a team player" like navy blue, making this great for the workplace. This is a good base tone to wear with brighter colors or a statement necklace.

It goes with everything, but is notoriously hard to keep clean. It can create a pure and simple look with a touch of elegance.

This celestial color looks great on people with blue eyes. This cool color works with lavender, gray and black.

Red

This is a powerful color that looks sexy with black. Gold can add a spark of flaming allure.

This is a color for a cute and pure look. Redheads can wear pastel shades of pink.

Sales

Think you have to be rolling in dough to own a Marc Jacobs, Versace or Calvin Klein? Not so! Many of our designer brands are forty, fifty, sometimes even seventy percent off the retail price!

Brands

While we offer luxury brands such as MSGM, Kenzo and Acne Studios, we also carry more affordable brands such as Adidas, Mango and Free People. You should know we also carry Lovers + Friends, Vince and Rag & Bone.

Trends

A cozy but inviting silhouette is de rigueur as is the sculpted sleeve. Textures and drapes make a sweet and soft look.

Pop Culture/Celebs

When not used for fanservice without baring skin, the sweater is used to connote someone who is gentle and intellectual. Sweaters and sweater vests are pop culture shorthand for "geeky but incredibly smart and even kind of nice." Peter Parker often wore them in the comics to hide the fact that he was actually The Amazing Spider-Man. Velma Dinkley from the Scooby-Doo cartoons always had her orange turtleneck. Weezer had a song called "Come Undone" that became known as "The Sweater Song" due to the chorus being "If you want to destroy my sweater, hold this thread as I walk away".

The geometric patterned sweater was the uniform of many TV dads in the Eighties, symbolizing warmth and wisdom. Amaze.org presented an animation about gender identity that featured a penguin named Jason who prefers sweaters to sports wear, showing that boys can embrace their gentle side if they want. In the Harry Potter books, Harry and all the Weasley kids get hand knitted sweaters for Christmas from Molly Weasley, making sweaters and other knitted objects a symbol of maternal love. 

Celebrities prove that gray sweaters are not boring! Cameron Diaz was spotted in a gray tribal print pullover at LAX. Gisele Bündchen was seen hurrying through the streets of New York in a charcoal turtleneck and basic black. Hilary Duff paired a softer oatmeal gray with destroyed jeans.

Conclusion

Sweaters are a must for every wardrobe. They are both fashionable and functional. The trick is knowing what to wear with your sweater and what situation the sweater will be worn in. Remember to contrast but not clash. A good sweater will make you look soft yet stylish.
