If you’ve always wanted to layer several pieces to create a detailed, cohesive look, a solid coloured cotton sweater is essential. It is lightweight, which means that you can layer without running the risk of feeling stifled halfway through the day.
It’s not as hot as a typical Indian summer, but we aren’t getting any closer to winter either. Since we’ve established that it is still too warm to break out your thick woollens, a cotton sweater serves as an ideal transitional piece. It is perfect for this time of the year, as it takes care of the occasional evening chill, but doesn’t weigh you down.
Because cotton sweaters lose heat faster, they’re perfect to wear by themselves. When worn over jeans or paired with a suit, they look extremely fashionable and require minimal effort.
When compared to sweaters that are made out of wool, those made out of cotton are easy to launder and store. If you are not someone who prides themselves on their laundry skills, investing in cotton sweaters is a great idea, because they are low maintenance and are also affordably priced, making them easy to replace.
For a simple office look, layer a V-neck cotton sweater with a dress shirt and trousers. You can also add a blazer if you feel a slight nip in the air. For a stylish, sophisticated off-duty look, dress down your sweater by wearing it over distressed blue denims paired with casual lace-ups.
