Once we have done with Indian summers and the like, we will have to admit to the fact that the temperature is dropping. Even when it’s just the start and end of the day that causes us a slight shiver, proper clothes are called for.
That’s when we will be calling on something fuzzy and warm to wear. Whether it’s mohair, angora, alpaca, a blend, or anything else that does the job, it traps warm air without losing us any fashion points. It works for any occasion, and with just about any outfit.
Soft colours blend with the shades of autumn, and are flattering when our skins show the effects of frost or wind. Wear peach with pale trousers, or amber with maroon. Brighten up with woven motifs and logos, like the intarsia on Roberto Cavalli’s fuzzy sweaters for Fall 2014. Or follow Balmain and Richard Nicholl, by keeping it simple in pure white sweaters or coats, and team with printed pants.
Grab a lighter version for socialising, and opt for short sleeve sweaters, like Katy Perry, Lauren Conrad, and actor/blogger Ashley Madekwe, who topped a pastel pink patent leather pencil skirt with a white crop (believe us, it totally works!). Or pair a fuzzy top with shorts and opaque tights for another good evening look.
Mix textures; go for a knitted pattern, such as cable, or introduce stripes. Too much fluff might appear bulky, so break it up by using two blocks of colours. Stand out with a bright all-over design. Add a roll-neck to be extra snug, or make a statement with a cowl. Combine the style with another trend for fall 2014, the oversized sweater, and wear over leather. On the other hand, you could do the opposite, and curtail length with a cropped version.
The fuzzy look was just made for denim. Furry or fuzzy coats and jackets with skinnies, ripped or not, or a mini, or balance a mega-fluffy top with cuffed jeans. This trend harks back to pre-millennium, so you might like to incorporate it with another nineties returner, the grunge look. Try it in all black. Travel back in time once more to neons, and you’ll feel a smidgeon of nostalgia at the sight of Balmain’s long-napped orange contribution to the update.
If the fuzzy look is good enough for Rihanna, who was spotted in a fuzzy sweater on a cool New York evening, while toting an outsize knitted bag, we’re certainly not going to argue!
