Sweaters vs How to Wear Them

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

The Crewneck

Typically worn with: A T-shirt underneath; you can wear it with a collared shirt, too, but it can look a little square.

Positively associated with: Athletes

Negatively associated with: Yuppies

Beware of: Thinking you can wear it without a collared shirt under a jacket. You can’t.


The V-Neck

Typically worn with: Collared shirts, including polo shirts (with the shirt’s collar tucked into — yes, into — the sweater).

Positively associated with: Laid-back weekends

Negatively associated with: Casual Fridays

Beware of: A plunging neckline. Never show more than the top two shirt buttons.


The Cardigan

Typically worn with: Anything from a T-shirt to a dress shirt and tie. A good cardigan is often a suitable way to add warmth on chilly fall days.

Positively associated with: Mr. Rogers

Negatively associated with: Fusty English professors

Beware of: Losing a button. And never tuck a cardigan into anything.


The Turtleneck

Typically worn with: A tweed blazer or a sport coat. You should also feel free to wear it on its own.

Positively associated with: Steve McQueen in Bullitt

Negatively associated with: Steve Jobs (His are cotton. But still.)

Beware of: Anything too tight or fitted. Or too loose and long, for that matter.
