As the colder temperatures settle in, it’s time spruce up your Sweater wardrobe and today we wanted to talk about one of our latest must have pieces for your closet this season – Elan Sweaters. We recently started carrying this line at Vintage Fringe and their sweaters are probably one of Elan’s most well known staples. Personally, what I love about these sweaters are their distinctive style. These sweaters are not the classic cable knit v neck sweater or cardigans that you see in many of the retail chain stores. Rather the Elan Sweaters we carry at Vintage Fringe have been chosen by our buyers because of their distinctive styles.
Consider the Elan Butterfly Turtleneck Sweater. This sweater utilizes a stylish oversized turtleneck at the top and then the dolman sleeve which is so popular this season. In addition, the sweater also features a loose fit at the waist that actually flares. In fact the center of the sweater is actually shorter than the sides. These two components warranted the Butterfly description. There is also the contrasting ribbed textured knit down the center which is also a great modern way to mix it up with the style of this sweater. For all of these reasons it really is a statement sweater, but best of all it can be dressed up or down. My favorite look is with skinny jeans and high boots to really create that modern edgy look. It’s available in Ash Grey a light shade of grey so it pairs well with both whites and blacks for layering. The sweater knit is acrylic and definitely keeps you warm, but not at the expense of looking fashionable.
Next with a different style all together, the Elan Striped Hoodie Sweater captures more of a vintage style blended with modern fashion trends like the hoodie and the wide stripes. This sweater features contrasting wide stripes in ash grey and creme. A long tunic length sweater this sweater also looks stunning with boots my favorite are tall suede grey boots for a dressy look or even with Uggs for a more casual look. As for the great details, this sweater has a pin closure in front which is actually a large pin that is covered with matching grey yarn. Of course we have to mention the hoodie which also gives this sweater more of a retro look. In short, this sweater is another great statement sweater for your closet that you won’t find everywhere.
As you can see both of these sweaters are great fashion statement pieces, and best of all they won’t break the bank with reasonable pricing for sweaters both currently on sale for under $75. Finding distinctive sweaters can often be a frustrating task as you can find yourself drowning in a sea of v necks and cardigans. At Vintage Fringe we try to find pieces that you are not going to find everywhere else and our goal is always to help you find statement pieces for your wardrobe.
