In the market for your next forever sweater? We’re here to showcase 5 types of sweater that will never go out of style…
A sweater’s selling point is its shape, and everyone has a preference. Whether it’s tight fitting, close to the body for extra insulation or an oversized, light-weight staple that allows for layering - find you’re next favourite sweater in the list below.
A CLASSIC FIT
The term ‘Classic Fit’ gets thrown around, but let’s clear up what that actually means. Think, not too tight, not too loose. A Classic fit sweater is designed to both hug, and fall off the body at once. Commonly a crew neck, your classic fit sweater will be form fitting on the shoulder, loosen around the chest and finish with a flattering drape.

A FORM FIT
Form-fitting is a term that’s common in the fashion world, it refers to a snug fit that will hug your shoulders, arms and bust and flow down from there. A form-fitting sweater sits tighter to your body, providing warmth and insulation.
Here’s a sneak peak of our favourites:
AN OVER-SIZED FIT
The easiest ‘throw it on and go’ option. An oversized fit is one that you don’t have to worry about. Your oversized sweater will fall off your body flawlessly as soon as it’s pulled over your head. Perfectly paired with practically everything in your wardrobe, discover our favourite oversized sweaters here:
The name says it all - a V-Neck sweater can be a classic, form fitting or oversized shape with a deep V through the chest. This sweater highlights your décolletage, allows for accessories and provides a shape that’s easy to dress up, or down.
