Holiday Shopping: Cozy knits for guys and dolls

December 14, 2011 | 10:00 am

Soyer knit vest
A sweater seems like a ho-hum holiday gift but really, it’s so practical and with this recent cold and rainy weather who wouldn’t want to receive a cozy knit item to stay warm?

This knit vest from Soyer, above, is a cute, warm layer, plus it’s versatile enough to be styled and worn several ways. Throw it over a dress and under a skinny belt for a color-blocking effect or pair it with wide-leg jeans and a soft, patterned blouse for a fancy boho vibe.


For the guys in your life, how about this Fair Isle crew-neck option from Vince. The pattern is festive without being over the top and the neutral colors make it easy to wear after the holiday season.

If he’s not a pattern-and-print kind of guy, Vince has some super soft and solid cashmere versions.

People may complain, but I think everyone is secretly hoping for a new sweater as long as it's soft to the touch and of course, very stylish.


Soyer knit vest, $358, comes in teal or taupe, at Des Kohan, 671 Cloverdale Ave., Los Angeles. 

Vince Fair Isle sweater, $295; Vince Classic cashmere sweater, $295, at Vince, 112 S. Robertson Blvd, Los Angeles.
