Those of you who follow my Pinterest wanderings may have noted a certain “It” item. Early in the year I began to hear a chant of desire, as one does for these things, “Fisherman’s sweater, fisherman’s sweater, fisherman’s sweater.”
A little odd, but apparently I was not alone. Gwyneth has spoken. Via Pinterest and Daily Crush.
We don’t have to go all the way to La Paltrow to wear a fisherman’s sweater. We can start with tried and true. This cable knit from L.L. Bean gets great reviews. And it’s cotton, meaning even those in California can wear it in and out of the house.
Or we can borrow from the boys. like Keri Russell. Enhanced by oyfriend jeans showing the ankle, and oxfords. Via the epitome of quiet.
Hanna Andersson has another great version for boys and men one could pilfer, and the Nouveau Classic Tuckernucker brand makes one that’s boyfriend styled, if we might borrow a term as well as a sweater.
So then, unsurprisingly, we look to classic American designers for the guidebook to Gwyneth territory. Marc Jacobs, below,
and those blindingly expensive, terribly talented, who’d-a-thunk-it Olsen twins, at The Row.
Finally, for those watching expanses of white slightly puffy cables scroll by, and wondering who in their right mind wants to add volume to their midsection, we’ll always have scarves. This one is from Barneys NY private label, in acres of Italian cashmere.
Wrap that soft baby around your neck a few times and throw the tassels over your shoulder insouciantly. Don the rest of your usual gear and scamper out the door, cabled and happy. Don’t forget to wave to Gwyneth as you pass. Keri, of course, would wave at you first.
