Cary Grant, the iconic Hollywood actor known for his suave charm and impeccable style, left an indelible mark on the world of fashion. Why do we have your ear to talk about him today? Well, it seems to be that he had quite a love for the humble crew neck sweater and because of that, we had no choice but to name our newest sweater after the handsome hunk. You heard it here first. Our newest gem in the Fall collection (launching Monday!) is a delicious wool crewneck sweater appropriately named Cary.The Man Behind the Style
Born Archibald Leach in Bristol, England, in 1904, Cary Grant's journey to stardom was nothing short of remarkable. His transformation from a young boy growing up in a working-class family to the epitome of Hollywood star power working with leading ladies like Audrey Hepburn, Grace Kelly, Ingrid Bergman and THE Katharine, just to name a few, is a testament to his determination and talent. Do we have your attention now? Well, his journey to stardom was not only about his acting skills but also his innate sense of style and that's what we are here to talk about.The Crew Neck Sweater: A Wardrobe Staple
Let's get into this a bit. One of the cornerstones of Cary Grant's style was the classic crew neck sweater (among others of course, but today it's about this one.) He perfectly demonstrated that this seemingly "classic not basic" piece could be a versatile foundation for both casual and elegant looks. Fast forward to today, we are inspired to do the same for ourselves. Let's take a page from his style book and incorporate the crew neck knit into our wardrobes.
Here are 4 ways to wear your crews:
Casual Chic: Emulate Grant's casual yet polished look by pairing a classic crew neck sweater with well-fitted jeans or tailored trousers. Add some loafers, sneakers or clogs for a comfortable and effortlessly stylish outfit perfect for a weekend brunch or a leisurely stroll.
Layering Mastery: Grant mastered the art of layering, and so can we. A crew neck sweater can be worn under blazers, jackets, or even over a button-down shirt like our Donna for a modern twist on traditional layering. This versatile approach can take you from the office to a dinner date with ease.
Accessorize Thoughtfully: Grant's minimalistic approach to accessories can be adopted by today's fashion-forward women. A crew neck sweater provides a perfect canvas for statement jewelry, scarves, or belts that can add a touch of personality to your look.
Dress It Up: Don't shy away from dressing up your crew neck sweater. Pair it with a sleek skirt, a pair of pumps, and some statement earrings for an night out.
Cary Grant's influence on fashion reminds us that style is not confined to specific genders or eras. His mastery to effortlessly blend comfort and elegance offer valuable lessons for women seeking to curate a chic but functional wardrobe today.
