18 Far-From-Basic Cable-Knit Sweaters
It’s an undisputed fact that everyone needs an array of sweaters in their cold-weather lineup. Like a quality V-neck, a comfy cardigan and a boldly patterned knit. OK, maybe two or three of the latter. Another absolute must? Why cable-knit sweaters, of course.
Cable-knit sweaters are never in short supply. You can buy them at almost every department store. But we’re not advocating for your average textured knits. No, we like our sweaters with a whole lot of personality. Think puffy sleeves, asymmetrical hems, detached collars and even a cool cape take. We’re also looking for pops of notice-me color. We’re talking a retina-burning highlighter yellow, pale powder pinks and an ombre offering that’ll make onlookers do a double take. After all, staying warm shouldn’t involve sacrificing style points.
Our knit picks definitely demand to be the center of attention. So it’s essential to keep the rest of your outfit low-key. Pair them with classic straight-leg jeans, a pleated midi skirt or slightly slit-hem trousers. You can even slip them over your favorite fall dresses.
