No. 11: Tight Sweaters, the New Cleavage

Forget plunging necklines, the female news anchors of America are wearing clingy sweaters. And they look good. The tight sweater has always allowed a woman to appear totally demure and irrepressibly sexy. With the recent emergence of the female news anchor as one of the most important female archetypes in pop culture today (that and the cop-show heroine), the sweater’s double duty is being employed more than ever. Take the women of Headline News, for instance. Or almost every female news anchor at Fox or MSNBC. They have to look sexy, but cleavage would be wrong. Shrunken cashmere, however, suggests that they want to attract us and coyly repel us at the same time. They want us to listen, and someone has determined that if we are slightly turned on, we’ll listen better. So: SWEATERS.”
