Find the Best Sweater and Overshirt Style for You

Sweaters are an excellent, and often underrated, piece to include in your wardrobe. Where most outer layers provide warmth, they lack something in terms of style. That’s not the case with a sweater. With a sweater, you can look great, stay comfortable, and complete many different types of outfits for countless occasions.

In this article, we are going to provide some basic tips on how to find the right sweater for your needs, tastes, and favorite activities. Of course, if you have any questions about the products you find in our inventory, feel free to contact us right away for assistance.

Considerations When Picking a Sweater

There are plenty of great sweaters available to pick from today, both here at V1946 and from various other retailers. Before you get into the shopping process, however, it’s smart to think about two key points that will dictate what you look for in your next sweater.

Preferred activities

To get started, think about what you are likely to be doing when you’ll be wearing your sweaters. If you are going to be indoors and relatively relaxed, like going out to dinner or hanging out at a friend’s house, you don’t need to worry much about performance. Also, if this is a garment that will typically be worn inside, it won’t need to keep you particularly warm, so you can focus largely on the sweater’s style. However, if you are going to be active in your sweaters – say, playing golf, for example – you’ll want to think about the durability and flexibility of the sweater. Sweaters that have room to move and are made from materials that will be comfortable in an active setting are going to be a smart pick.

Personal style

You’ll also want to make sure a sweater that you purchase makes sense for your style and overall wardrobe. Some people like to use sweaters as a classy, upscale item that is suited for more formal gatherings, and that’s certainly a great way to go. But it’s not the only option, as other sweaters will bring a casual, yet still stylish, look to your wardrobe. You might want to have options that fit into both of these categories, or you may stick with one over the other exclusively.

Consider Some Options

Perhaps the best way to get comfortable with what types of sweaters will work for you is to look through options that are available at V1946. As a starting point, let’s look at our Quilted Quarter Zip. This is a medium weight garment that will provide some warmth to your outfit on cool mornings or evenings, but it’s not so heavy as to be restrictive. It’s made with a 60% cotton and 40% polyester blend material so it’s a comfortable item that is also offered in two colors. This is a great pick if you want a layer that easily comes on and off as your needs change throughout the day.

If you like the quarter zip style but want something slightly sleeker, look at our Heathered French Terry Quarter Zip. This uses that same blend of cotton and polyester, but without the quilting, it has a streamlined look and is another option that would be great for layering. We mentioned golf earlier, and if you happen to be looking for an outerwear garment to add over your golf shirt when the course is cold early in the morning, this item would be a nice pick.

Keep Your Options Open

Adding just a single sweater to your wardrobe would be a good start but loading up with even more options will help you create great outfits throughout the fall and winter months. Whether you need sweaters or anything else from our V1946 collection, you are sure to be impressed by the value and quality that we deliver. Place your order today!
