5. Knitted Sweater 

According to Statista, the global sweater market is estimated to generate 104.8 billion U.S. dollars in retail sales in 2021. Do you know why? It is because people love wearing sweaters. They don’t just add to your style statement, but also make you comfortable and confident. 

However, the million-dollar question is, how do you choose the perfect sweater for your wardrobe? The three basic things that you should consider while sweater shopping include:


  • The Neckline
  • Think cautiously which type of neckline looks best on you. Should you go for a turtle neck for warmth, or should you go for a V-neck for a more stylish look? 

  • The Length 
  • The length of your sweater plays a crucial role when deciding on a perfect sweater. The best way to choose whether to go for an elegant looking cropped sweater or a traditional long one is by thinking about the bottoms that you will be paring with that sweater. 

  • The Volume 
  • If you want a clean and structured look, you should go for fitted sweaters. If you want to opt for a more relaxed and comfy look, then loose ones are the way to go.
