It has been so cold in Vancouver lately that I’ve been living in my Cozy Oversized Knit Sweaters. I’ve been spring shopping in anticipation of better weather (remember my Cami NYC purchases?). Today I found these amazing cozy oversized knits on markdown and clearance at Roots. I wanted to share because even though we are officially in Spring fashion season, the actual season is still winter. There are great winter markdowns to be found!
I always forget to shop at Roots even though I love a lot of their loungewear and casual wear. I never think of Roots for classic basics like knit sweaters but they are a definite
I was in heaven today when I walked
I’m sad to report only a few of these sweaters are still available online. But there are several other styles online that I didn’t see in

As soon as I spotted it in store today I knew I was buying it. It’s 45% wool, 35% nylon and 20% alpaca. Those of you sensitive to wool will find this one mildly itchy but also very soft. I’ve been wearing it all day without a tank or shirt underneath and so far I don’t want to take it off. the care tag says it’s dry clean only but I plan to wash it on delicate with a lingerie detergent and no spin, and then I’ll lay it flat to dry. Should be fine, I’ve washed alpaca knits before.
If you’ve been admiring the oh so pricey Instagram favorite Bella Freud 1970 Jumper, look no further. Roots
I really loved the look of this dark navy sweater. The rustic knit embroidery detail at the neckline is so perfect. I wanted to purchase this one but there was definitely more itch than the first one I showed you and I know I won’t reach for it. It also wasn’t enough of an oversized slouchy fit in my TTS. I may still consider it at a later date in a bigger size if the bigger size makes it less itchy.
