Even if you have a drawer full of knits, you’re really missing out if you don’t own a Space Dye Sweater. This year they’re more popular than ever, and here are a few reasons why.
1. Space Dye Sweaters are Colorful
I always say that color is energy and energy is life, and at midlife, we certainly want to look alive, don’t we (LOl!) Space dye sweaters, like my pretty blue one, are colorful because of the unique way in which the yarn is created.
Each strand is dyed in multiple colors to create abstract color patterns, which may or may not repeat throughout the length of the yarn. Maybe you’ve heard of dip-dye? Well, it’s the same thing.
Space dyed yarn can be dyed in coordinating or contrasting shades. My sweater is in pretty shades of blue, giving a subtle yet sophisticated look. Contrasting colors would give this sweater a more funky look. (Does my white coat look familiar? I wore it last week with that pretty pink sweater I showed you.)
2. Space Dye Sweaters Add Texture to your Wardrobe
Any great wardrobe needs texture, and space dye sweaters give you that. Most are made with marled (twisted) yarn, so you end up a chunky knit sweater that has a lot of colors, which tends to emphasize the texture even more.
3. Space Dye Sweaters are Sporty
You tend to see a lot of the space dye sweaters and tops in Athleisurewear. With a dressier sweater like this, you still get that cool, sporty, camouflage-print look and feel.
I love the way this sweater has been knit in different directions, creating a figure-flattering V-shape down the front.
4. They’re Comfy
This space dye sweater is nearly 60% cotton, so it’s soft and comfy, as well as a nice weight to wear in the spring.
5. This Cropped Style is Right on Trend
Cropped space dye sweaters have been trending. This one sits perfectly at my waist and looks excellent when you pair it with long, dark bootcut jeans.
I love this stunning blue color with my new pink Kate spade bag.
