This most recent cold front has officially catapulted us into the beautiful, magical time of year otherwise known as sweater weather. With visions of cashmere and fleece dancing in everyone's heads, let's take a moment to go over the things that make sweaters so dang amazing.

1. Comfort.

This is common knowledge for even the most novice of sweater lovers. Wearing a sweater is like getting a soft, woolen hug. And who wouldn't want that?

2. They can be worn all year.

It's common to see sweaters worn in some form or fashion no matter the season. Winter? Throw on a coat and some fur boots. Summer? Layer a lightweight one over a dress, romper, shorts, or anything pastel or floral. Literally any outfit, anytime is better with a sweater added. With that in mind though...

3. Sweaters are also seasonal.

Think autumn leaves. Shorter days. Pumpkins involved whenever possible. FALL, the sweet sound of every latte- drinking and boot-wearing gal (or guy), brings instant visions of pure bliss. Sweaters and fall go together like PB & J! As every aspect of life is just a little bit better in fall, so are sweaters.

4. They are unisex.

Sweaters have a certain practicality that literally anyone can wear them and look TOTALLY AWESOME. It's probably scientifically proven that a person wearing a sweater is automatically more attractive. Also the thing I love most about guys sweaters is how they are always 500% comfier than girls sweaters.

5. Christmas. Sweaters.

Because the only thing better than sweaters is sweaters that are Christmas themed. I don't need to say more.

6. Cardigans.

Essentially, cardigans are sweaters, but I like to put them in a special box because of the special place they have in my heart. Cardigans maximize the versatility sweaters already possess, and I never leave home without them (much to my friends' amusement). They are perfect for days that are too warm for an all out wool turtleneck but too chilly for just a t-shirt. I could go on and on about cardigans so I'll stop now.

7. Aesthetic.

As we have already confirmed, sweaters obviously make everything better. Sweaters are just more pleasing to the eye. I know if I am strolling through the mall trying to buy things I don't need and I see a mannequin or poster featuring a sweater, I am running straight for that store to buy five of them. There's just something about seeing sweaters that calms and comforts the mind, similar to a lavender candle or that first bite of a Chick-fil-a sandwich.

8. Sweatshirts.

The close cousin of sweaters, sweatshirts are yet another beautiful gift to mankind. A t-shirt and sweater combined, sweatshirts are the perfect combination of warm, stylish and COMFY. And you can get ones that say everything from a witty pun to a team you rep (like Texas A&M for example, can I get a WH**P!)

9. Warmth.

A more obvious and probably the most useful aspect of sweaters is their warmth. You can find sweaters for every level of warmth, from a lightweight cardigan for a warm breeze to a toasty turtleneck for those blistering winter days.

10. No two are the same.

There is an infinite number of sweaters in this world, which is both a blessing because there are so many to choose from and a curse because I want every. single. one. Now that you understand the true power and pure awesomeness of sweaters, Feel free to buy one in every material, shape and color. Or five.

- Since my late teens, I have had wavy, unruly hair that is susceptible to frizz from heat damage.

- I've made a conscious effort to try and eliminate heat styling products from my hair regimen in order to do less damage in the form of split ends and hair loss.

- When I first tried Tineco's MODA ONE Smart Ionic Hair Dryer, I was immediately amazed by how quickly it dried my thick strands and how straight/sleek my hair was with minimal work.

Up to my late teen years, my thick, soft, silky straight hair was the envy of nearly everyone I encountered. I totally took it for granted till my hair began to evolve into being more wavy and unruly with random patches of wavy and straight hair.

I will preach this until the day I'm in the ground, nudes are an essential.

They are just as essential as toilet paper is right now and they have more power than just being a photo that's hidden on your iPhone. Nudes aren't just a way to turn on the guy/girl you've been hanging out with, but they can elicit a feeling of confidence and pure sexuality.
