Happy Christmas to all who celebrate!
I need to refresh my sweater collection, and I am hoping to use after Christmas sales to do that. Sweaters are my favorite tops and I wear them almost exclusively. Thin layering ones under blazers for work, more interesting ones with jeans on their own on weekends. Linen and cotton ones in summer, merino and cashmere in winter. I rarely wear other types of tops - I have few t-shirts that I wear at home, and couple of blouses that I wear on the hottest summer days, but other than that - sweater it is. Unfortunately sweaters are not the most lasting items of clothing. Because of that I am always on the lookout for interesting ones in my color palette, and I refresh them often. My collection got pretty thin recently. In addition to regular replacement of 2-3 seasons old sweaters that are looking tired and worn out, I also had some bad luck lately. I had to retire four sweaters after only few wears - one ended up in wrong laundry cycle and shrank to XS size, another had stain in front that I could not get rid of, and 2 developed holes after first very gentle wash. Those two with holes are botn BR and I am now hesitant to buy more from them. Do you have any recommendations for me? Where should I look? Do you have a sweater that you a particularly happy with?
