“Sweaters are a closet staple,” says Colombian fashion journalist and critic Nina García. Having served as the fashion director for such magazines as Elle and Marie Claire, there’s no doubt she knows what she’s talking about. “Knitwear can play a vital part in layering,” echoes British supermodel Twiggy. “The simplicity of a lightweight cardigan makes it one of the best ways to layer outfits,” explains the fashion icon. “I love grandad cardis for winter, worn over a vintage lace shirt, waistcoat and full skirt with slouchy boots.” “I think there’s something charming about incorporating summer clothes into winter, like pairing a summery skirt with a massive sweater,” suggests American entertainer Debby Ryan. “I’m also really into layering during the winter.” “When I’m at home or at school, I’m casual and comfortable,” notes American model AnnaSophia Robb. “I tend to wear work out clothes and lots of sweaters.” No matter how you wear them, sweaters are an essential part of every winter wardrobe, from sweater jackets to cocoon sweaters. A Thalia lightweight duster cardigan is ideal for layering as is an Alexa hooded cardigan that covers your head. Now that the weather is getting colder, you can remain warm and fashionable in a Lana Aztec long sweater cardigan. Available in soft knit, the ankle length style features a draped front, which adds a chic accent to any ensemble. For an added touch of pizzaz, try a Kamil embroidered kimono cardigan or a Marwa crochet trim shawl cardigan jacket with crochet ruffle. All of these winter staples are available at Artizara where you can find a wide array of modesty garments to keep you looking good and feeling cozy throughout the cold season.
