Brace yourselves. Winter is coming. Okay, so I might not be ready to bundle up just yet, as you can tell by my sliver of midriff; however, now is a good time to think about the layers you’ll need as the temps start to cool off. What I’ve noticed, and this is especially true if you wear above a size 24, the earlier you shop for seasonal items, the better. Because the best stuff in those sizes go out of stock so quickly, its best to buy swimsuits early in the spring and winter clothes, like, right now. For this week’s “A Case of the Fridays,” I present to you my favorite cardigans, jackets, and coats.
Cardis are always handy, even if it’s not super cold outside. They work to cut the chill both indoors and out, whether the perp is a blasting AC or an early fall breeze. I’ve noticed this year’s cardigans are less plain Jane and have interesting little details, such as print, patterns, and pockets. As a knitter, it somewhat pains me that it’s absolutely impossible to make every sweater I need, so when I can at least find one with a little something special in the design, it’s as Martha would say, “a good thing.”
Aside from being practical, I always feel an outfit’s a lot more interesting with a jacket. You can go from business to biker just by switching this layer. In the winter, we tend to wear a lot more jackets than heavy coats here in South Louisiana. They give enough warmth without being overly bulky.
Brrr! Baby, when it’s cold outside, you gotta have a coat! Along with being stylish, what I look for in a coat is the ability to be roomy enough to go on over other layers. Often, coats make me feel inhibited, so it’s a bonus to have one that lets you have full range of motion. I’ve noticed a variety of coats available this time of year, from casual to dressy, and like I said earlier, it’s best to order asap so you have your pick of the litter. (Psst…#12 isn’t available yet, but if you follow the link, you can be notified when it is!)
How about you? Have you started shopping for warm weather essentials? Let me know in the comments! As for me, I don’t think it’s too early to sport a little something extra on the outside. Thank you for taking a look at some of my favorite outer layers. Until next time, stay warm!
