A summary of men's style and one of the favorite elements of men's wardrobe, the sweater builds the most cozy & chic look of winter giving the feeling of a calm luxury.
It is a piece that gives style and at the same time protects from high temperatures while it can be easily integrated in both relaxed and more formal clothing.
The variety is great and the choice is difficult to find the one or those sweaters that will best suit your body type and style.
In the short guide that follows you will find everything you need to discover about the fabrics, colors and trends that dominate this season in sweaters in order to find the ones that will launch your style.
The quality of the sweater
One of the most important elements that you must observe in order not to "get lost" in the huge variety of sweaters that you will encounter is the composition of the fabrics.
The difference lies between natural and synthetic fabrics. Natural fabrics are considered to be wool, cashmere and cotton (which is light and durable and is the most common fabric for the production of a sweater). Unlike in the category of synthetic fabrics belongs to nylon (the most common synthetic fabric), polyester and acrylic (the synthetic alternative to cashmere).
The neckline of the sweater

Here we will dwell more as it is a piece that offers a variety of stylistic combinations. If your jacket has a leading role in layering, you must choose the one with the narrow lapel made of fine fabrics and spread evenly through jackets, cardigans and coats. If you still want to achieve a "warm" winter effect, thick knit sweaters are the best choice.
The sweater with zipper, Lupetto Zip
Known as luppeto zip, zipper sweaters are an ideal choice as they can make you white-faced in both casual and more sophisticated looks. Their special style makes them ideal for any look. You can choose them for an outing at night wearing them over a monochrome shirt but also in the morning at your workplace you can combine the sweater and the shirt with a tie.
Sweater and fit
Let us now turn to an issue that concerns our elegance and our psychology at the same time. The application of the garment we will choose. As with any garment that is worth wearing, the sweater must have the right fit. What you need to pay attention to first is that the end of the shoulder seam ends right at the top of your shoulder bones. Then the sleeves should end at the base of the wrist just above the thumb. The sweater should look comfortable on you without looking poor or wide. In v-neck sweaters, you must be careful that the neckline is not too big, while if you choose a turtleneck, its neck is tight and relatively high without making wrinkles.
