Rises have been, well, on the rise for some time now. And gazing into fashion’s crystal ball (aka the 2015 pre-fall collections) I see no signs of them falling anytime soon. It’s time to invest in a shorter sweater, one that hits high above the hips and says, Hey, here’s the very tippy-top of my blue jeans. See? I have a waist! Those who are midriff-shy can wear theirs like stylist Vanessa Traina, and layer a tissue-weight tee under an long sleeved turtleneck. If skin is in your comfort zone, though, a tight-fitting sweater can flatter. The most important proportional factors in this equation: sleeves that are longer than your knit’s end (even if those sleeves are bracelet length; see the BDG striped one below). Here are 12 sweaters that meet the criteria and will likely work with any on-trend denim you’ll buy this year. Don’t thank me now…but in six months when you’re still wearing them.
