I am starting to get my fall and winter clothes out there. Can you all recommend your favorite sweaters? I hate the ones that pill after one wearing. What tops are you all wearing this season? I like the long thin cardigans but for every day wear I'm thinking about getting Banana Republic and J Crews.

Thanks.

It depends on your lifestyle really. Whether you are in a corporate environment, a housewife, a sporty chick etc, you get the drift right?
My staples are my argyle sweaters.

Brands I like are Burberry, Lacoste, and Barbour.

I also love long cardies, but not those soccer moms wear. I like them really structured.

I don't mind for brands in cardies, I just look for design.

I have a thin silk blend from Banana Republic that has lasted over the years, and last fall picked up a Kenneth Cole cowl neck sweater in white I love plus a thin merino wool Club Monaco. So far those two have stayed nice :smile:

My wardrobe staples usually comes from Club Monaco (I like monotone colors). They have some classic V-necks and cardigans out the last time I checked that will go well with jeans and skirts.

I also like the sweaters from the new Vince collection. It's all about a long and lean look.


I also like the cropped chunky knit sweaters. I'm eyeing a red Theory one similar to this:

cashmere sweaters/cardies from different brands, such as stella, chloe, lv, givenchy. I can't wear wool so it limits the selection somewhat. I really like turtle neck, so most of my sweaters are turtle neck of different color/style.

My favorite sweater is a black cotton crew neck sweater from the Gap. It is so simple and versatile, and I can machine wash it. I cant live without it.

I also like the simple merino wool sweaters in black from banana. They do the best job in mens sweaters too. Thin, soft. I have some nice cable sweaters and wrap sweaters from but I always feel sooo fat in them, or I get too hot!
