Classic sweaters for winter

See also

Have you seen any classic cowl neck sweaters at a special price during the winter this year in Chicago? If you haven't had time to shop for sweaters such as those, now may be the time to look for a classic cowl neck or other sweaters to round out your wardrobe. Perhaps you already have some tried but true sweaters in your wardrobe and enjoy wearing them every winter. If you're one of our older readers, you may be reassured that your classic sweaters, such as the sweater in the photo, are still a stylish part of your favorites or a granddaughter's new look.

Winter white sweaters are a perennial favorite for those who can't afford a total wardrobe revamping every season. In fact, there may be very few people who can change their entire wardrobe every season, of course, unless you have help from family and friends, with some trades and gifts from Christmas. For those of you who can, there are cowl necks and other styles available at the popular stores, such as Kohl's and New York and Company, online, for example. They may be long enough to cover up your waistline when wearing low rise jeans and other pants. If you're looking for Gloria Vanderbilt jeans, however, you can probably find jeans and other pants that cover up enough to prevent you from embarrassing yourself when you bend over. (Oh, no!)

Perhaps you're not looking for winter white. If that's the case, there are sweaters available in other colors that might match what you've already got in your wardrobe. Do you want pink? If you're looking for sweaters that will expand your wardrobe, you might find crew necks or turtlenecks, which can always enhance what you already have, even from Target. If you can't find what you want, you may have to make do unless you want one of Land's End classics from their array of colors, mail order style. Saks Fifth Avenue might have a retro look in sweaters, for those who want designer colors, patterns and shapes that will give you a new look.

So for those of you who are too young to realize that a retro look in sweaters is available, to match your Franco Sarto shoes, you might want a look that is new and fresh for the office, especially if you are in an up and coming job. Those of you who think you'll need something trendy, especially in the Chicago job market, could need a sweater or two for a new look for yourself.
