As we say goodbye to summer and embrace fall, we are not quite ready to think about coats and heavy sweaters. I haven’t found a single person who does not love fall. With football, baseball playoffs, cooler days the changing of the leaves, what isn’t there to love? I always embrace fall by pulling out my cardigans and assessing what I have. I can layer them over my tank tops and t-shirts and even my button downs when it gets to be November. They work with shorts if it’s a hot day like in San Francisco or jeans if you are in the North West. I’ve scoured the fashion pages and stores and here are the new and creative take on the 4 C’s of fall.
To add fur trim to your cardigan collection, try these by Alice & Olivia (left), Zara (middle) and Joie.
If you like your cardigan with a twist, then these cardi’s are for you. Banana Republic is on the left with a pretty lace detail that is good for both work and play. Nic + Zoe in the middle with a great toggle closure detail and cowl neck – perfect for all body types and ages. And as always, the great cable knit sweater is a perfect staple piece. This one is from J.Crew – I love the toggles on it.
Caplets are in this fall and if you are not ready to embrace the whole jacket idea then these cardigans will let you be on trend without being too trendy. J.Crew on the left is a classic that can work for day and night. Rachel Pally in the middle is better for a more relaxed look and Michael by Michael Kors is best on the end for a casual chic look.
To a fabulous closet,
