seasonless sweaters

Sweaters are a non-negotiable in SoCal because someone is always
having a BBQ, or a bonfire, or a BBQ that leads into a bonfire. The latter is my personal fave,
because you basically start the day out in a tank and tennies, and round it off in a slouchy sweater and UGGS {yes, I know; but sometimes they're necessary}.

I tend to opt for sweaters in neutral colors that have an oversized, slouchy fit because in Cali, where it never gets too cold, they are completely seasonless. What works for bonfires at the beach in the summer and fall seamlessly morphs into fully-apropos ladies winter christmas jumpers when styled with a mini skirt and Mary-Janes for holiday parties. The same goes for guys.

Those cheap mens christmas seasonal jumpers guys buy right before the holidays? Pair them with shorts on chilly summer nights, or pull-out all the stops with a dressier look {i.e. topping a pair of slacks} for date night, and they're good to go year-round. Bonus for the ladies...borrow one from the boys for a super cute menswear-inspired touch!


What type of sweaters do you {or your guy} prefer?
