An unfussy sweater is a useful thing. Hit up any online retailer specializing in current menswear and you’re sure to find a mix of knits ranging from trusty basics to straight-off-the-runway fashion with a capital F. And though it’s fun to envision yourself wearing a hand dyed cashmere jumper embroidered with psychedelic mushrooms, it’s probably not the most practical purchase you can make for your life right now.
So in our third installment of the Winter Wish List, we decided to focus on the trusty basics.
Chunky turtlenecks. Rich merino in earthy hues. Nordic knits. There’s a good reason why certain styles make a comeback year after year and it all boils down to use value. Think about it…a navy wool crewneck can do everything your college sweatshirt can do and serve you well in times when you need to look a little more sharp.
So whether you’re in the market for something to don on Zoom or just live out your best cozy vibe while sipping a bourbon, we’ve gathered up our five favorite unfussy sweaters and the shirts to wear underneath them.
