Women's Long Sweaters

The beauty of a long sweater is its versatility. This particularly feminine cut does not have to drape heavily and without a shape. As warm wear in cooler weather, it accentuates curves while covering up the areas you may want to disguise, as long as you cleverly pair it with the right layers underneath or accessories on top.

When the temperature starts to drop, consider having a staple long sweater from Christopher and Banks to fit a variety of personal and professional settings. You can create a look that is unique to your life by considering a few basic style principles.

When choosing a sweater for the office, err on the conservative side, but remember, you do not have to sacrifice a feminine shape in order to be modest. Long, belted cardigans create a trench-coat style that easily fits into a professional setting without the constrictive and masculine structure of a blazer.

Pairing a bold colored sweater (perhaps one with an interesting neckline) with a skirt and stylish leggings or slim fit jeans will show off some of your best assets in a sophisticated manner. The long length draws eyes to the legs and face, while keeping you comfortably covered up.

Sometimes the fabric texture alone will influence the way a sweater should be worn. If you are working with a bulky cable knit sweater, consider feminine layers underneath, such as a floral pattern or lacy camisole. If the sweater is embellished on its own, let it be the highlight of your ensemble by pairing it with subdued colors and minimal accessories.

Whether you are out for a walk and need a comfortable outer layer in the fall, or you are looking for a sweater that easily transitions between a day at the office and dinner at your favorite restaurant, consider our collection at Christopher and Banks. We offer sizes that suit every shape, from petite to plus size.
