A great alternative to the wrap is an oversized sweater or an oversized open cardigan. Celebrities like Nicole Richie and Vanessa Hudgens have been spotted wearing it. If you want one with a little bit of oomph, go with items that come with Nordic inspired patterns or prints. For example, these oversized open sweaters from Twelfth St. by Cynthia Vincent and La Cité:
Twelfth St. by Cynthia Vincent Oversized Navajo Sweater, on sale for US$245 from US$350 at Shopbop.com
Twelfth St. by Cynthia Vincent Oversized Lightweight Navajo Sweater, on sale for US$245 from US$350
La Cité Sweater Cardigan, on sale for US$128 from US$150
These come in thick materials, but there’s no stopping you from using it this season if you want to. They’re perfectly wearable and will keep you warm on extra cool nights when a thin wrap or cardi is not enough. All three oversized sweaters are on sale by the way, so if you like it, go and get ‘em before it’s too late.
You can also try this more season-appropriate topper from Diane Von Furstenberg – the Adene Cardigan. It is colorfully printed and features Nordic inspired banding all around the hem, placket, and sleeves.
