The 5 Sweaters you need for fall
Sweater season has arrived—and Fashion Fabrics Club has rounded up the essential styles that will instantly upgrade your fall wardrobe, pairing nicely with every basic and go-to in your rotation. Meet the 5 sweaters of fall ’16.
This fall’s sweaterdresses are taking on a minimal shape in lightweight wools like cashmere, which makes for an easy go-to. Just add the season’s trending Chelsea boots and minimal jewelry and you’re ready for just about anything the day brings. (Extra tip: To prepare for fall’s temperamental climate, toss a pair of tights in your bag in case you’re caught in a sudden temp drop.)
The Collegiate Cardigan
The fall season is all about “back to school,” so it’s no wonder that preppy pieces start to pop back up on the fashion scene after a long summer of laid-back looks. The cotton sweater knit cardigan is a grown-up way to bring a little prep-school polish to a look. Heighten the appeal by layering over a boyfriend button-up.
The Sweater Vest
The name of the game of this season’s knitted sweater vests: the longer, the better. From thigh length to ankle skimming this easy toss-on transforms the most basic of fall looks—like a favorite pair of jeans and a simple tee—into a full-on look.
The cropped sweater in a breezy cotton knit or crochet is just right for transition season. On warmer days, pair with a fit-and-flare mini skirt or high-waisted pencil skirt. For crisper, cooler days, use it as added dimension to a tailored look like a classic white button up and pair of patterned cigarette pants.
The Turtleneck Tunic
The perfect partner with all of fall’s leggings and skinny jeans, a long, sleeveless heathered knit sweater tunic offers so very many ways to wear. Wear it with a crisp button-up underneath to make it office-ready, or pair it with tights with an oversized trench or topcoat tossed on top to give it more of a sweater-y feel. The options are endless.
