Genius ‘Leave Me Alone’ Sweater Is All You Need This Winter If You Hate People

If you’re an introvert who hates interacting with people just as much as you hate the cold, you’re in luck.

It turns out, you don’t have to avoid human contact by hibernating under a nice warm blanket in your apartment all winter.

Now, you can simultaneously protect yourself from unsolicited social interactions and cold weather with one chic winter ensemble.

Allow me to introduce you to the “Leave Me Alone Sweater.”

Created by Ruth Grace Wong, a “Pinterest engineer by day, maker by night,” this anti-social sweater is just what it sounds like.

It’s basically a bougie turtleneck sweater that’s specifically designed for people who just want to be left the hell alone… while staying warm in an insanely stylish ensemble, of course.

Ruth told Bored Panda her glorious garment is “more of a statement than a functional piece of clothing,” you know, since you can’t really see where the hell you’re going when you have a sweater pulled up over your eyes.

But if you ask me, a lack of eyesight is a small price to pay for the comfort of total isolation.

Not to mention, this bad boy is convertible and can be worn in three different styles: off-the-shoulder, cowl neck and zipped over your face for those days that you just literally can’t even deal with people.

If you’re wondering how you can get your hands on a few of these epic sweaters, you’ll be glad to know you can make them in the comfort of your desolate home by following Ruth’s simple, step-by-step guide on Instructables.

Ruth has also put her “Leave Me Alone Sweater” up on the website Betabrand with the hopes she’ll one day be able to produce and sell these sweaters to all of the introverts who hate DIY projects but love anti-social sweaters.

Seriously, it’s only a matter of time before this becomes the hottest fashion trend of the season.
