Keep warm and cozy with a classic retro vintage sweater (jumper) or button-up cardigan. From the 1900s to the 1960s vintage sweaters changed from plain chunky cable knit cardigans and shawl collar pullovers to thinner and shorter crop sweaters and knit tops. Handmade or machine made in plain or winter-y fair isle sweater prints were fashionable in the early 30s to 40s mid-century while the later 50s and 60s embellished twin sets with beads, applique, and embroidery. The retro 60s and 70s loved bold mod designs, new textures like boucle, and longer hip lengths. Learn more about the history of 1900-1930s sweaters and 1940s to 1970s sweaters.
