A fail-safe cozy weekend sweater that works for everyone? A fisherman’s knit. If you can steal one from your boyfriend/husband/significant other, lucky you. If not, you should still choose one with a slightly baggy silhouette (or shrunken—maybe from the boys’ department; the L.L. Bean version below is actually men’s because it is the most classic shape). Make it sexy by wearing knee-high boots and skinny jeans, or Katherine Hepburn/tomboy with wide-leg pants and sneakers. If you live in CA, denim shorts and sandals (something I always want to do and never can living on the East Coast.) How I wish I could steal Steve McQueen’s! See more options below.
