Top-4 popular kinds of sweaters
Turtleneck. This is the version of the sweater, and turtlenecks are loved by women. It is quite comfortable, light and soft, and a woman can say a lot about its ability to harmonize with other clothes and styles. Turtleneck is tight-fitting sweater made of thin knitwear, the main feature of which is a high collar “under the throat”. Turtlenecks can be worn safely both independently and with other types of women's sweaters.
Long-sleeve is another version of the thin knit sweater, which is very similar to the usual turtleneck. The name "long sleeve" is formed from two English words ‘long’ and ‘sleeve’. The main feature by which a woman can accurately recognize the long sleeve is a rather tight silhouette and an oval neckline (the turtleneck has a high collar). It is possible to choose a long sleeve for wearing with jeans, skirts, classical trousers (long sleeve, in this case, should be as concise as possible).
Warm sweater. The sweater is a knitted warm product with a long sleeve and stand-up collar. In this case, the collar can be considered to be a distinctive feature of the product. In addition, unlike a cardigan or a poncho (which can be woven), a sweater is always knitted. The models decorated with embossed patterns and different types of braids look absolutely inimitable. It is noteworthy that the word to sweat (from which the name of the product was originated) translates from English in a specific way and means that it is too hot.
Pullover. This is a warm knitted sweater without buckles and with a V-neck. The pullover, even before it was firmly established in the women's wardrobe, was considered exclusively as men's clothing. Moreover, it was mostly English athletes who wore it, because the product was hotly loved by them due to its practicality and ease of wearing.
