I’ve always been someone that stuck to a pretty safe color palette when it came to my clothes. I think a lot of it was when I was a child shopping with my mom I’d see her write off certain colors of because they didn’t match her skin tone. From there, I always assumed those colors were not for me either. It’s only been later in life to where I realized that we look better in differing color tones. On a recent Aritzia shopping trip I originally picked up a black merino wool sweater that I wanted to try on and then the associate pulled this sweater and showed it to me. I wasn’t sure about the color, called Tamarind, but decided to try it on and ended up loving it. After doing more online research, its clear to see this yellow-goldish tone is a pretty popular sweater color this fall see here and here.
I’ve linked below to several other options in this color palette, but let’s talk specifics about the sweater I’m wearing here. This is the Wilfred Cyprie Sweater and is made of 100% merino wool. This is not your gross, scratchy wool sweater you’re grandma knitted for you. If you’re not familiar with merino wool it is a much finer wool strand that is both warm but also soft. This sweater has a nice thickness and a semi-loose fit with a what I’d call a mock-neck. You will have to hand wash this, but do not fear it’s not going to be nearly the amount of work that you think it will be. Merino wool has natural anti-microbial properties meaning odors and bacteria won’t seep into the fabric meaning less washes because it won’t get stinky!
I’m excited to wear this new-found color more often this fall/winter and see what other item in my closet this will pair well with. If you’re feeling this color too I’ve linked to several more options below!
