Knit sweaters are known as fall and winter fashion’s must-have clothing item, but heavy knit garments tend to get boring by the middle of the season. This is why I love my Forever 21 black knit sweater with cut-out sleeves. At a glance, it looks like the average sweater, but take a second look and you will notice it’s not-so-average sleeves.
Usually knit sweaters make my body look too bulky because of my curves, but the cut-outs attract more attention to my shoulders, giving a balanced look to the rest of my body. The sweater is also lightweight and loose fitting, leaving extra room to layer without feeling like a walking bundle of fabric.
Because of the sweater’s versatility it can be worn with denim, leggings and skirts, giving each look a different style. Toward the colder days of fall, the sweater can be dressed up with scarves, and the cut-outs make it breathable, allowing me to throw a on heavy coat during the winter months.
A black sweater goes with everything, but the cuts make the entire piece work double time, not only serving as a comfortable winter garment, but also an edgy piece without working too hard. I can dress the sweater down or up without feeling too lazy about my look.
