You know when you just see a sweater and know it’s meant for you to own it? I have multiple sweaters in my closet where I’ve had this urge that they need to be in my closet, and they end up being sweaters I wear CONSTANTLY throughout the fall/winter seasons. Here in Utah we have harsh winters so it’s important for me to find comfy, oversized sweaters that I can snuggle up in all season long. As of late I have been gravitating away from purchasing sweaters from Forever 21 and other retailers solely because of the cheap quality that you can sometimes find. I have realized that many of the comfy, adorable printed sweaters come from the decades of our grandparents! My grandma has the most AMAZING sweaters and I have also found many thrift stores carry some vintage pieces that shouldn’t be overlooked. You can find a great vintage sweater for $8 max at the thrift store and it’ll be just as stylish as the ones found at department stores! I know not all are thrifters… but I encourage you to take a closer look next time you’re passing your local thrift store, you never know what vintage fall item you may find! If you’re not into thrifting, take a look at your grandma’s closet! You are sure to find some amazing gems in there worth wearing!
