Best Bet: Club Monaco Sophia Sweater

By mid-January, the sweater is part of one’s uniform — add a skirt or pants and consider yourself dressed; however, as basic renditions start to feel bland and novelty sweaters lose their luster post-holidays, a graphic cardigan still feels fresh. This color-blocked version from Club Monaco looks great layered with a contrasting pattern, like a floral blouse or a brightly hued tee, and adds some texture to the mix. Come summer, it’ll make for the perfect office sweater.
