I must admit that the new sweater trend adopted by the Kenyan men is much appealing. Apart from becoming more dress conscious our men recently seem to be accepting the fashion vibrant change.

Though the sweater trend has been absent for quite sometime our men seem to bring it back in style and have made it the latest fashion craze. However like it normally happens not all men have been able to pull the trend off as it should be.

When deciding what to wear to work men are inclined to keep their outfit official by wearing suits. However sometimes it is monotonous to wear dress shirts and slacks from January to December.

If you’re tired of wearing a bland shirt and tie to the office everyday a sweater is an available convenient alternative.

Functionally if worn right, it helps show off personal style without interfering with the official look. Yet most men know little about sweaters and even fewer take full advantage of all the styles and patterns available.

Understanding the fine line between sweaters that work at work  and sweaters that don’t is very important.
