Sweater weather

Still haven't had any cool blasts down this way even though I am putting sweaters on my mannequins. Have you seen the latest wrap sweaters? What do you think about this style? Has your college students already got one of the uber soft, super comfy open sweater with a longish front that you can tie? Is she or you more of a it-can't-go-outta-style-if-it-was-never-in-style kinda gal? I tried one on and at first thought they seemed a little too long to wear open. I tied one on my mannequin, and she is a hard body size 4 and she looks thick around the middle with a lot of added fabric right where I sure don't need any extra attention. Maybe the knot will draw attention away from my "dessert line." :) ;) Should I tie it in the back? What have you spotted being sported in the north? Anyone have styling tips? And what's the verdict: Are wrap sweaters fug or fab? http://www.victoriassecret.com/clothing/soft-and-sexy-wrap

Up here in MA we have had unusually warm weather this week--it's in the 70's!

I saw the Donna Karen wrap sweaters being show on Martha Stewart a few weeks ago. She had a million ways they could be worn, which was kind of neat, but I couldn't really see myself wearing them those ways. They reminded me of "Units" - that 80's fashion trend. Anyone remember those? You could wear the long tube as a dress, skirt or bunch it up as a belt.

Anyway...some of the Victoria's Secret wraps are cute. I'd probably wear one.

We've had a few days of sweater weather here, and I saw lots of women wearing the sweaters with the extra fabric in the front but not with ties like on the VS page. I don't think that most of those styles would be flattering on me... with the billowy top you need a streamlined bottom half... I don't

Hi Kellie, ooooo I remember Units in the mall... guess they never made it out of the 80s! Remember all the multi colored leg warmers? We just got in legwarmers that are sewn onto to the bottom of jeggings!! Wonder if shoulder pads are going to make a come back too?????

Hi elc,

With slim tall models pr my Barbie doll like mannequins we are all kinda stuck looking for a good fit.

We have hooded capes...no fleece... it was fun to fly around the store in one

How exciting for your daughter to be raking in the orders! Sure

Hi teadrinker, why couldn't you wear them under a winter coat? I can see a jacket might leave them flowing and showing underneath. I would use it more for a wrap over a tank top or dress for early mornings or evenings when our sun is not heating up the world. I believe even a " who cares" is a fashion statement/choice. Most of our friends are so clever and brillant we don't really see more than their face, probably we are fascinated with their intelligence and that is one fashionable trail to blaze too.
