Winter feels so good when you know that you have a few high quality jersey items to rely on. There are few things that fit as snug and comfortably as a winter knit jersey. Thanks to a close grained stitching design, jerseys are warm, lightweight, soft, insulating and flexible. Stylish designs and chic details are but a nice extra that serves to infuse this humble winter basic with personality and pizzaz. While you might already have a few jerseys, there’s nothing wrong with adding a few more to the collection, and here are a few reasons why you should:
The jersey is a very accommodating material that you can pair with any type of material, including formal cotton, silk and satin shirts, blouses and t-shirts. A good example of a jersey’s adaptability would be to throw it over a tailored shirt and pants combo for a stylish day at the office. Not only will you look appropriate, but you’ll feel warm and comfortable in the midst of the cold.
The humble jersey has come a long way from its early days as an item of convenience. Each year brings with it new designs, patterns and detailing that makes wearing the jersey an exciting experience. Chesca Direct stocks a wide range of jersey products, from printed jersey tops and skirts, printed cardigans, sleeveless jersey tops, print and pinstriped t-shirts, beaded and layered t shirts, tunics, cardigans and more. With so much variety you’d be hard pressed to find a wider collection of jersey designs anywhere else, and this store is just one example of what you can do with good quality jersey material.
Jersey knit fabric is typically made from cotton, but there are some varieties that are made using a combination of cotton and synthetic fibers. Nevertheless, it’s characteristically flexible and stretchy, allowing for ease of movement and ability to wear other layers of clothing underneath. Most jerseys cling to the body as a result of the stretch factor, which makes them look fitted, and this is one of the characteristics that make knit dresses look so flattering on the female silhouette.
For those who want the warmth of a winter coat without the weightiness, chunky jerseys are an ideal option. Jersey material is typically lightweight and breathable, and yet still provides enough insulation to keep the biting cold out. Also, because of the lightweight factor, you can layer more than one jersey or add multiple layers of clothing beneath it to keep you warm without the bulk.
Just because it’s chilly out doesn’t mean that you have to sacrifice your style. Most winter jerseys come with creative designs like set-in sleeves, sequins, buttons and more. These seemingly small details can instantly add elegance and charm to an otherwise simple and artless look.
Modern jerseys come in different styles and sizes. You can either opt for a feminine fit, or a chunky, tailored or A-line look, depending on your body type. For instance, a flared cardigan in a feminine fit looks great on women with an athletic build, while A-line and tailored jerseys work well for hourglass and pear-shaped figures.
Due to their durability, knit jerseys are generally easy to maintain and typically require that you wash them in lukewarm or cold water with like colors and air dry. Brightly colored knitwear tends to bleed out when washed with hot or overly warm water. But when cared for properly, a good quality jersey can last for many years.
The classic jersey is an enduring winter trend that just keeps getting better. Not only is it warm and insulating but it’s lightweight, versatile and fashionable. Shop for your favorite jersey here at Chesca Direct!
