7 Sweaters Perfect for Winter Weekends
Your workweek is full of rigidness — from your packed schedule to confining work attire. Once the weekend arrives, it’s time to kick back and dress comfortably, and because ’tis the season, you also want to feel cozy. Stock your closet with these perfect weekend sweaters, and we promise you’ll be stylish and comfortable.
1. The turtleneck
GQ recommends one of its favorites: “If it’s not completely obvious yet, we pretty much love using a turtleneck wherever we can. Thinner versions add elegance under everyday suits while chunkier options become the centerpiece of any outfit. Try pairing a neutral one like this from Gant Rugger with a bright red down vest for a fresh weekend look,” says GQ creative director Jim Moore. What’s great about this sweater is that it can easily be dressed up or down, but no matter which way you choose or how you’re feeling, you’re sure to look like a million bucks.
Try this: Gant Rugger Rib-Knit Turtleneck, $225, available at Mr Porter
2. The chunky knit fisherman sweater
This chunky knit by Orvis is a perfect sweater to wear from day to night on the weekend. This heather color 100% wool sweater in a traditional cable-knit crew neck is just as wearable dressed down grabbing brunch or dressed up for dinner on a Saturday night. Slip it over a dress shirt for a formal look, or go without for a casual look.
