The Coziest Pullovers for Winter

Perhaps all the wintertime dressing up has gotten me into a comfy, casual mode. Pullovers always give me a warm and fuzzy feeling. There is nothing like wearing something that makes you feel and look comfortable, and in the colder months wearing warm and comfortable clothing is necessary. This isn’t Saturday night cocktail attire, but attire for the days you just chillax or attire you can wear to work over your work clothing.

Starting simple yet stylish, check out Banana Republic’s horizontal pullover. It is cowled and has cool buttons that accent the sleeve. Please remember that horizontal stripes can appear unflattering on some body types. If you have a short torso or are top heavy, avoid this item like I will. But, that doesn’t prevent me from admiring it.
