Along with the coat, the sweater is one of the most recurrent garments of winter : they accompany us in our daily looks, but they also serve to form the most elegant outfits when the cold is the protagonist. At intu Xanadú we tell you which are the most versatile and what the trends are like for this fall-winter 2021.
history of the sweater
The sweater is the star garment in our wardrobes, with countless designs, materials and possibilities for our looks. It began to be popular among the working class (fishermen and sailors), as it served as a coat and was especially durable: these were made of English wool, in one piece and in navy blue. When the English bourgeoisie began to be fond of sports, they made knitted sweaters and they became an essential part of sports outfits and also of the styling of the English dukes, where vests are an essential item of clothing.
Known as a jersey, sweater or pullover, it is a key garment of the traditional style, easy to combine with long skirts, short skirts, jeans , sneakers or heels. A complete sales success that returns to our wardrobes every new season.
The trends invite you to be the protagonist of our combinations, choosing sweaters with animal print, with shiny finishes or with oversize width. Bright colors have also gained popularity on the catwalk, but plain sweaters and turtlenecks will always be a trend : timeless but with a lot of character. We have made a selection with some of the ones we like the most.
If you want to renew your most timeless sweaters, we recommend that you get a solid color one, easily combined with a multitude of garments. You can bet on simple pieces but with original shapes, like this sweater from Zara with a wide puffed stain and finished in a cuff . This sweater is made with wood fiber from sustainably managed forests.
At Benetton we choose this wool sweater, with a round neckline and made of 100% wool Italian fabric. Very resistant and in a plum shade that is especially
flattering. From Cortefiel we choose this sweater with a metallic finish with pearl knit and ruffles on the armholes, as well as long puffed sleeves. Very flattering and versatile for any occasion.
The warmest days cry out for a turtleneck sweater: the most hated and loved of the fashionistas. Many find in it a special piece with which to keep us warm on the coldest days, incorporating a polished and warm style . Others, on the other hand, do not feel comfortable with the high neck finish. We have options for all of them, starting with this one from H&M , high ribbed , but very wide so it doesn’t get in the way throughout the day. It’s made of soft wool knit, with raglan sleeves, dropped shoulders and a dropped back. Made with recycled polyester.
Our Massimo Dutti store includes a classic and warm piece in its autumn-winter 2021 collection: the cable-knit sweater . We have selected this shade of grey, perfect for everyday wear without losing class. From Stradivarius we keep this white sweater with balloon sleeves , timeless, stylish and of the highest quality to accompany you for years.
In addition to being a wardrobe staple, sweaters can also be the most prominent garment in your look. Bet on flower prints, sailor prints, animal prints or glitter. We recommend this jacquard knit sweater with flowers and a round neckline, available at Zara.
If you want to bet everything on color, you will love this Desigual sweater. It is a knitted sweater with a high neck, with a teddy effect and designed by the designer María Escoté . Unite the most vivid colors with golden metallic fabrics. Do you dare with him? Finally, we recommend this H&M sweater, in shades of brown and white, with psychedelic motifs , a perkins neckline and dropped shoulders.
We recommend that to give a touch of personality you include special accessories that give movement to the look, such as scarves around the neck, shirts with striking collars underneath, wide earrings or even necklaces that give a touch of color. You can draw attention to your sweater or you can use it as an accompaniment to a more striking piece, such as a printed skirt or pants. Whichever style you choose, make sure it feels comfortable and reflects your own personality.
