Quiet Luxury Sweaters for Winter and Beyond

With winter in full swing and my pregnancy progressing into its 2nd trimester, I’ve been leaning hard on a steady rotation of quiet luxury sweaters to keep me feeling both cozy and stylish. The whole vibe is pretty darn effortless, since each piece is meant to be simple, subtle, and able to mix and match with everything else in your wardrobe. Plus knitwear is tailor-made for for the quiet luxury trend since a great sweater can be an outfit-maker in and of itself! Here’s what I keep in mind when creating my go-to outfits.

How to Shop for Quiet Luxury Sweaters

With its mix of classic, minimalist silhouettes and investment-worthy materials, the quiet luxury trend is SO up my alley! When shopping for quiet luxury knits, go for timeless neutral hues like camel and cream, oatmeal and cocoa, charcoal and ink. Basically, if the name of the color sounds elegant and rich, you’re on the right track!

Texture is key, too, since quiet luxury is all about sumptuous touches. I especially love a cable knit like the one I’m wearing in the image above. It speaks to a level of craftsmanship that’s understated yet high end. A chunky cable knit has a slightly more casual sensibility, while a delicate cable like the one on my camel sweater feels more refined. The flattering drape and extra length on mine is especially appreciated as my belly continues to grow!

The examples above perfectly illustrated how versatile these sweaters are for occasions of all kinds! Layer a cable hoodie over jeans and a white tee, and a crisp button down pairs beautifully beneath a timeless crew neck. Tuck an oversized vest into a silk skirt for a fancier affair, or wear it untucked with bike shorts for weekend ease. A boxy knit works perfectly with pleated trousers for the office. You can even team a knit top and skirt for a feminine co-ord set. Really, you can’t go wrong!
