10 Must-Have Sweaters for Women
1. Crew Neck and Ribbed
The crew neck or sometimes referred to as the “scoop neck” sweater never goes out of style. It’s one of those seasonal basics that every style savvy gal should have in their wardrobe, regardless of the season. A good rule of thumb to nailing the ribbed crew neck, is to get it in a neutral color such as ivory, taupe or black. By doing this, you are not limiting your options as to what you can wear it with or what winter coats and jackets you can wear it under.
