We’ve officially entered the dark days here in Seattle. Grey skies, light rain and chilly temps have become the norm—but don’t think we’re complaining! If there’s one thing we love about this season, it’s the opportunity to rock cozy sweaters with almost every look. Read on for a roundup of our favorite Designer and Contemporary styles, from big and chunky to sleek and sculptural.
Add thick swaths of leather to a plain-as-day sweater—whether all over or just in strips—and you’ve got an edgy new take on a winter staple.
