*Until the 1920s, knitted sweaters were utilitarian or athletic items, not fashion statements. It took Hollywood to make the sweater a star! Twinsets have been famously worn by Grace Kelly, Marilyn Monroe and many other feminine icons. A twinset consisted of a fitted under-sweater and a coordinating cardigan usually worn unbuttoned.
This new style of dress brought interest to sweater decorations, thus the sweater clip was born! Sweater clips, also called sweater guards, have been popular since the 50’s as a way to hold a sweater or shrug on your shoulders without having to actually wear the sweater. The two clips are held together with a chain. You clip the sweater clips to each side of the collar of the sweater or just below. The sweater clips themselves are normally alligator type clips like that of what you find on a tie clip. Some sweater clips have a fold over clip like what was found on dress clips from long ago. They are very attractive and come in many designs and lengths. You can also wear sweater clips on your blouse or vest as a decoration. You can wear them with capes or shrugs. However you wear them, sweater clips will give your outfit some extra zing and be a conversation piece that will be noticed. Vintage Shopping Guide.
