Cosy winter sweaters

I know I said I am into sparkly clothes but I am into cosy sweaters too…. You know how it is, some days one feels very sexy, gorgeous, etc. etc., others, one feels like “I need a cuddle”. original_cashmere_scarves_3_That’s when a cosy winter jumper is useful. You may even have a “half sexy half cosy outfit”, in case you are not sure about your mood being stable all day long… (not at all likely in women!!)

Only there are two problems: first there’s not much in a way of knitwear which is decently priced and quality at the same time, two, it isn’t really cold enough for them, al least here, in Italy.

Providing it becomes colder, here are a few thoughts on how to wear an oversized cosy sweater:

Lighter colours look “warmer” and more “hugging” than darker ones,


very long sleeves too….

A pattern generally makes your sweater look thicker than perhaps it is, so more wintery, might make you look wider too though.

Of course a polo or crew neck make tops warmer looking

as does mohair

or raised patterns and melange

Now, how to wear it. Well, what about a pair of skinny jeans or leather trousers with ankle boots (with or without heel).






I really like a shirt or t-shirt which is longer than the sweater and shows at the bottom.

Or a pair of chinos in the same colour of your jumper for a soft, cosy look? In this case I would add lace up shoes or trainers. I rather like a pencil skirt, again perhaps with trainers or ankle boots.

If you are tall enough, it’s also nice to add a full skirt, with heels preferably.

Well, let’s hope in the weather now!
