While designers tried their hands at sweater sets during the 1920s, the first true twinset is credited to Otto Weisz of Pringle of Scotland, who was inspired by the sweaters he saw worn on the golf course. In the '50s and '60s, the twinset became a staple of women's work wardrobes, most notably secretarial work or teaching (women's career choices were still fairly limited). Its popularity continued to grow outside the office too thanks to Hollywood starlets who were frequently photographed sporting the style on and off set. Equal parts sweet and sophisticated, it remains a classic to this day.
A layer as classic as the style icon we were inspired by. Wear it alone or pair it with the matching cardigan—it seems to work with just about anything.
