Designer Sweaters

Sweaters from Victoria Beckham Pre-Fall 2017  show slouchy shapes with monochromatic colors.

Every year designers make oversized sweaters for all seasons, from knee-length cardigans in all white to V-neck sweaters with coordinating turtlenecks and for winter – wool jumpers with shearling trimmed corduroy jackets.

Better than wearing an actual blanket in the cold weather, these knitted pieces can be flattering when styled in the right way.

One option is to wear a huge monochromatic knit teamed with loose trousers or a flowing skirt – get inspiration from Victoria Beckham (look at those sleeves below!) and Marc Jacobs and you can’t go wrong!

  1. Thank you for this post. I was wondering if you have the link for the white sweater towards the beginning of your post. In the picture the model is holding a cup and the walls are painted white.

    1. Hello Maureen, I’m so happy you like the post, that sweater in the photo you describe is a stock image that I bought, so I don’t know who made that white sweater.
      There are lots of other patterns for you to choose from, so I hope you will find something new to make!
      Happy knitting,

  2. Hello Louise, thank you for your wonderful patterns! On #8, the Super Chunky Oversized sweater,, is there any way to get that pattern in English? If not can you suggest something similar? I love the look of it! Thank you so much, love your website!


    1. Hello Donna,
      I think that the pattern you ask about is also in English if you scroll down on the pattern page.
      You would have to email the pattern creator to ask about a translation if it is not there anymore, as this is not one of my own pattern designs.
      I hope that helps!
