Hot Styles for Winter Sweaters are Sure to Keep You Warm!

Now that the frosty weather has set in and summer clothes are packed away, we look to sweater styles to keep us cozy and snug through the winter months ahead. And really, on a brisk January morning, what could be better than pulling a deliciously warm and snug sweater over your head? As the temperatures drop, the 2010 trends for women's winter sweaters are making their first appearances.

One trend that will take center stage this winter is the long, fitted sweater. Popular colors for these long women's winter sweaters include grey, plum, burgundy and black. These long, fitted sweaters are designed to be worn with skinny jeans, narrow slacks, pencil skirts or leggings, and a pair of ankle boots. To spice up this wintery ensemble, add a thin belt to the waist, and some chunky bracelets or bangles on your wrists.

Avoid heavy or large necklaces this winter, as elaborate sweater necklines are making a comeback. You will want to show off the attractive cowl necks and shawl-collars that will be especially prominent on sweaters this season. If you are particularly daring, many women's winter sweaters will feature the elegant scoop neck and off the shoulder design.

Sweater dresses are sure to be another closet staple this season. These stretchy, knit dresses are simple, elegant, flattering, and serve as an ideal wardrobe selection for office parties and holiday parties. Ballet flats, high heels, or dressy boots will all add a polished look to a sweater dress. A sweater dress that falls above the knee will look particularly attractive and stylish with a pair of knee high dress boots. This season, try pairing a sweater dress with patterned tights.

The deliciously soft materials of charmeuse, cashmere, alpaca, baby alpaca, vicuna, and merino wool will be particularly popular for 2010 women's winter sweaters. What woman can resist the soft, luxurious, cozy texture of these rare wool varieties? When shopping for women's winter sweaters, be sure to inquire about these wool varieties, care, and other artful details such as hand crochet and re-embroidery, which can add considerable value to an item.

Of course classics such as chunky sweaters, pullovers and cardigans will retain their popularity, but look for new varieties to these old classics such as hooded cardigans, and kangaroo pockets on sweaters. Any of these sweater varieties will look great over a simple turtleneck.

In addition to sweaters, keep an eye out for other knit products that will prove to be some of the most popular trends this season. If you don't already know how to knit, perhaps 2010 will be the year to learn! These must-have knit items include colorful, hand knit scarves, bags, caps, legwarmers, mufflers, and even long necklaces with knitted bobbles. But with just a little knitting practice, these trendy items can be made by hand.

Supersize yarn has been a hot item through the fall. Look for accessories and sweaters with large, supersize or loose weaves. This winter, soft super size yarn is sure to be featured in cozy cowl neck sweaters and shawl-collars.
