DON'T WEAR THE COSBY SWEATER
Bill Cosby's sweaters are the butt of jokes for a reason. By all means, experiment with sweaters in brightly colored stripes-preferably lean-cut crew-necks but steer clear pf any pattern so loud you wouldn't wear it to work. And never wear a printed sweater with anything but solid-colored shirts and trousers.
DON'T WEAR THE CHRISTMAS SWEATER
No article of clothing in your closet should be pegged to a holiday. The only excuses for wearing a "festive" sweater: You're a kindergarten teacher, you're a kids TV presenter, or your grandmother gave it to you-and you're at her house.
DON'T WEAR THE SKI SWEATER
An alpine-inspired sweater can be stylish-think a small-scale wintry print worn with jeans on the weekends- but an oversize, chunky-knit sweater bearing reindeers isn't appropriate anywhere off the slopes, or on them either.
