New Ways to Wear Aran
With winter fast approaching, are you thinking of fresh new ways to wear an Aran sweater? This traditional knitwear, originally worn by fishermen has enjoyed renewed popularity and can be seen on celebrities from Gwyneth Paltrow to Chris Evans. It’s warm, versatile and easy to incorporate into a smart or laid back look, so here are some ways to refresh your Aran sweaters this winter season:
The Aran jumper lends itself easily to outdoor occasions, whether you’re hiking, walking the dog, camping or attending an event. Lighter shades will give an uplifting look during darker winter days and the properties of wool will keep you both dry and warm. Easily combine with jeans, trousers or a skirt and boots for a casual yet comfortable winter outfit. For a range of Womens Aran Sweaters, go to Shamrock Gift
Chunky Knit Cardigan
Easy to take on and off depending on the weather, a chunky knit cardigan fitted with smart buttons and useful front pockets is another great choice for outdoor wear or lazy days at home. Comfortable and cosy, a cardigan can be paired with jeans, joggers, dresses and skirts as it’s incredibly versatile.
This type of jumper is extremely stylish and a must-have for every wardrobe. Incredibly soft and with Aran detailing, a cashmere in traditional white or cream will look spot on for any autumn/winter occasion.
For those who are a fan of turtlenecks, the Aran sweater can come in many styles including this one. For an added twist, consider a splash of colour and choose emerald green or deep blue. Combined with jeans, a belt and boots, this creates a rugged yet smart look for the sophisticated outdoorsy crew.
Half Zip Up
A compromise between a jumper and a cardigan, the half-zipped Aran is a popular and more modern take on the traditional. Again, an easy to wear option that is ideal for just about any casual outdoor activity.
Not a turtleneck and not a round neck, this option offers something a bit different and looks great in a mossy green or charcoal grey colour. It can be dressed up with chinos or dressed down for jeans and offers a flattering neckline for those who don’t like turtlenecks.
Can’t be dealing with cardigan buttons? Then a full zipped Aran is the way to go. It’s a modern take on the Irish classic and can be worn in a variety of colours ranging from off-white to teal or navy. No need to worry about what constitutes smart-casual when you’ve got one of these to throw on.
For those looking for a sweater to wear for smarter occasions, a fitted Aran is the way to go. This form fitting option gives a pleasing profile over a shirt and is a much more suave way to wear a sweater, avoiding any potential bagginess.
A current trend is the oversized jumper that virtually comes down to the knee. If you like the sound of this style then it looks great when paired with super skinny jeans.
