Sweater season is well and truly in full swing, Vancouver.
As the weather gets colder you’ll want to be wearing your coziest winter numbers. And obviously style is paramount because you’ll want to look good combating the cold.
But you don’t want to look like a ‘Plastics’ reject from Mean Girls by layering on some frumpy, semi-warm cardigan. Avoid this by investing in a high-quality sweater. Let’s be real, you’re going to be wearing it for most of the coming season so it’s worth buying a seriously comfortable piece of knitwear.
Vancouver-based brand Backdrop Fashion is the perfect place to snap up amazing knits of higher quality than those you’ll find at fast-fashion stores on the high street. The brand hit the market back in 2016 solely focused on knitwear wholesale. Since then, they have opened an online store and now sell to more than 300 retail stores in North America.
To celebrate sweater season, we rounded up the top five sweaters you can buy at Backdrop Fashion.
The chunky cable knit is so hot right now. It’s the contemporary version of the sweater you always wanted your nana to knit for you. Wear it over a long dress and fall in love with how effortlessly good you look.
Win at dressing for winter by wearing this dual-colour, sleek and dressy sweater. With refined details and a variety of stitches, it’s the kind of thing you could wear underneath a leather jacket while riding a motorbike. Or you could wear it to work with a pair of skinny jeans and Stan Smith kicks.
If you’re on the hunt for a pullover that’s cozy AF, you need this warm sweater in your life. The lovely folks at Backdrop Fashion call this the “Drake 1-800- ITS-COZY” internally, so you know it’s good.
Based on the bomber jacket silhouette, this fall/winter zip-up cardigan is a key wardrobe staple. It’s easy to dress up your look by wearing it with a dress or take it down to a more casual vibe by wearing it with a pair of boyfriend jeans.
This cardigan is the answer to those days when you want to throw something on quickly and haven’t checked the weather. It’s easy and super comfortable to wear, zipped or open. Plus, it’s a favourite of Backdrop Fashion staff. Pair it with a pair of tapered pants, jeans, bougie track pants, or wide leg pants for an exaggerated look. So. many. options.
