Find the Perfect Winter Sweater: Our Ultimate Guide

Winter has officially arrived, and we know what that means: sweater shopping has made its way to the top of the list! With so many options available these days, finding the perfect winter sweater can be hard. There are plenty of factors to consider when looking for your next cozy layer. Luckily, our team at Voltage Fashion has done all the research for you with our ultimate guide on how to find the best sweaters this season! 
 Cable Knit Sweaters

When it comes to finding a great cable knit sweater, there are a few things to keep in mind. First and foremost, you'll want to make sure that the sweater is soft and comfortable. Cable knit sweaters can often be a bit scratchy, so it's important to find one that will feel good against your skin. Additionally, you'll want to choose a sweater that fits well. A good way to test this is to put the sweater on and see if it's tight or loose around the chest and waist. If it's too tight, it may be uncomfortable to wear; if it's too loose, it may not keep you warm enough. 

Fair Isle Sweaters

Fair Isle sweaters are a type of sweater that is typically knitted with intricate colorwork. They're usually made up of many geometric shapes woven together to create what looks to be an abstract image. Fair Isle knitting originated in the Shetland Islands, but can now be found around the world, including in Norway, Sweden, and even the United States. Fair Isle sweaters have been cropping up on runways all over this past winter season because they offer a unique aesthetic, but still maintain comfort by giving you something to watch while you're bundled up on the couch.

V-Neck Sweaters

A close competitor to the cable knit sweater is the v-neck sweater. These sweaters can typically be worn with a nice blouse below. V-necks will also vary in how loose or tight they are. If you're looking for a casual sweater that's not too dressy, then this type of sweater will be perfect for you! 

Poncho Sweaters

Poncho sweaters have become a staple in the cold-weather apparel industry. They come in a variety of different colors and styles, so there's a poncho for everyone. The best part about these sweaters is that you can wear them two different ways: either with the poncho pulled tight or with it draped loosely over your shoulders. Perfect when paired with mid to low rise boots!
 Cardigan Sweaters

Cardigan sweaters are a must-have for any winter wardrobe. They come in a variety of different styles, colors, and materials. You can wear them as a light layer or as a heavy coat, depending on the weight of the sweater. Cardigans are perfect for those days when you don't know what to wear because they can be dressed up or down with ease. Our favorite fashion hack is to get comfy in your favorite leggings and compliment the look with a trendy cardigan on top. Know exactly sweater you are looking for this season?
