No, different from what could be assumed now, we are not embarking on a retro-themed skiing trip. The zip-up sweater is having its comeback, but it took another way than back in the 80s. In this winter, it is not hidden under thick skiing jackets, functioning as a warming gear for outdoor sports... It has undergone a complete change of image and turned into one of the most stylish and trendy fashion pieces of the season. Last years hype around the turtleneck has been topped, just by adding one little detail, the zipper. The sporty retro piece has immediately made its way into our hearts.
Most zip-up sweaters come with a rollneck (major love for the warming effect), while the zipper reaches either entirely or just halfway down. For the fabric, it’s either jersey or some knitted material. An extra-special retro look proved a mix of materials and colors, as ribbed cotton with neoprene-like or technical fabrics with a subtle shimmer. Geometric stripes are also very welcome.
The Kenzo jumper from the Autumn/Winter 2017 collection is a showpiece for the Zip-Up Sweater trend. It features a funnel neck, contrasting panels, ribbed trimming, dropped shoulders, a front zip fastening, and a digital retro print. More different, but not less amazing pieces of wool and Cashmere come from Acne, Isabel Marant, and Chloé.
On the streets, the trendy sweater is styled casually with high waist mum jeans or chic with a skirt or in a layered look under a slipdress.
