You Said: Yes to Shawl Collar Sweaters

Chelsea DB Shawl CardiganWe asked: Would you wear Shawl Collar Sweaters?

You said:  Yes to Shawl Collar Sweaters, with a 69% to 31% vote.

Style tip? Shawl collars provide an elegant twist to the everyday cardigan or pullover sweater.  The style is very American Classic, so it naturally works with other All American pieces: tailored button-down shirts, tweed skirts, and blazers.  But you can also mix things up and pair it with edgier pieces: skinny pants, asymmetrical skirts, and biker jackets. 

Next question: Military pants are an interesting casual pant alternative to jeans.  But what do you think?   Tell us, would you wear Military Pants?  Cast your vote on the sidebar!

    I could see these for most people, totally. I want to wear them, but they always remind me of my Mom! LoL. I guess I’ll have to do a wacky combination with a funky blouse to ‘own’ the look.

    Shawl Collar Sweaters don’t have to look frumpy – just make them your own with a funky combo. You could try the blouse combo – or even a oversized shawl collar sweater with skinny pants. Just have fun with it!

    Agree with Trisha – these sweaters can look both comfy and feminine if you style them right! Offsetting the bulk created by all that collar is key …

    Shawl collars are a classic styling element, so I think they’re usually a “do”. I have to say though, I ike when the sweater has a more defined / cinched waist than the one pictured.

    Great point about offsetting the bulk, Sal!
