CIty Life in a Oliver Charles Sweater

Introducing a 3-part blog series about new ways to consistently show up and create quality experiences in the big city where you're from.

Starting My 1-Week Sweater Challenge

My Oliver Charles sweater arrived on a Saturday afternoon... I decided to start the 1-Week Sweater Challenge the next morning.

The packaging was so fun! I kept my new sweater in its cylinder-shaped box that night. It has a cool yak on the front and a funny story about Slater and Jack on the back.

The next morning, I put my Oliver Charles sweater on, and I immediately noticed all the things I’d been looking forward to.

The 3D-knitting was awesome. It's seamless, soft, and the pit venting makes it super breathable.

But would I feel this way after wearing it every day for a week?

The answer was yes

My favorite part of the 1-Week Sweater Challenge ended up being something I didn’t realize weighed on me so heavily every day.

It answered the ever present question - what was I going to wear?

Since I knew this piece would be at the center of every outfit, I was excited to test its versatility.

Unique, Natural Fit of 3D-Knit Sweaters

My first test came right after I put it on. I picked up my guitar to see how it felt while playing. Playing my guitar is a little thing in life that brings me happiness...

If this was going to be an everyday sweater for me, I needed to make sure it felt comfortable in motion. It moved with me, an extension, just like my instrument.

By the end of my lazy Sunday morning, I was reluctant to take it off and I experience that feeling to this day.

Can I "Live" In a Wool sweater For A Week?

Styling my sweater was super easy.

Although “weather” is a strong word for what we have in Southern California, a light rain fell the next day and the yak wool in the sweater performed like a champ.

It dried quickly and didn’t retain any smell. I wore it with everything from a collared shirt for a cute layered look to throwing a hat on and walking out the door.

Whatever I needed to do, whether it was working from home or taking a walk in my neighborhood, I knew I'd feel warm and comfortable.

Benefits of A Quality Wool Sweater

Clothes are our companions - the uniforms we wear as we move through life.

OC got me interested in the concept of enclothed cognition, which is the idea that what we wear influences how we feel. And it’s true.

My Oliver Charles sweater is extremely versatile. The fit is unbelievable. This material learns about you.

Just as I was getting to know this piece and how flexible it could be, it was getting to know me too - my particular shape and size and movements and ways of being. The comfort is undeniable and so is the style.

Oliver Charles Is My Personal Uniform

Oliver Charles says it’s "a single sweater for all of life" and I’m officially a believer.

It’s made to last and backed for life. Not thinking about what I was going to wear freed my mind up for everything else I needed to get done.

Wherever I went, whatever I did, my sweater was cozy, stylish, and I felt good in it.

That’s what makes Oliver Charles sweaters different. They were designed and created to last and you can feel that.

The challenge was an amazing experience and I can’t wait to wear it forever.
