Cole Sweater
A.L.C.
Sold by: Revolve Clothing

Fit Guide
Pastels are prominent this fall, and look so elegant when paired with greys, camel, or winter white. A.L.C. is a contemporary line of chic separates, and this sweater is simply yummy. Combining alpaca wool with this open chunky stitch creates a beautiful texture that really pops in this color. The silhouette is simple, letting the color and fabrication speak for itself. Dress it up with wool trousers, down with a great pair of distressed grey denim.

Autumn is Calling & so is Our Need for New Sweaters

Happy autumn, ladies. Today is officially the first day of fall. And that means one thing: sweaters. OK, it means a few more things than that – pumpkin everything, leaves changing, football, and cozy fires in the fireplace. And what can you wear while partaking in all of these things? A fabulous sweater. This season, knitwear is more important than ever, so it’s a great time to invest because there are options for everyone and every aspect of our lives. From big chunky, oversized options to sleek, slim cashmeres in turtlenecks, crewnecks, cardigans, and dress silhouettes…oh, it’s too exciting. Let’s just get into the shopping!

We’re showing you just a few of our top picks here. Head over to Fashion Finds, to see more of our favorites, broken down for work, after 5, and casual dressing.
If you like something, just click on the “Shop It” button to buy it from our suggested retailer. And let us know what you think through the comments section below and on social media.

Vince - Sweater Back Drape Neck Coat
Vince has done something that should have been done a long time ago – they created a hybrid of a true coat and a sweater. And it’s fabulous. There are 2 sets of snaps that allow the collar line to either create beautiful lapels (open) or a rounded collar (when snapped all the way up). (See how it looks closed on Vince’s website.)  It is a beautiful neckline to add a scarf – no fighting with a traditional stand-up collar. The sweater knit runs inside the arms, as well as down the whole back, giving extra comfort to an already roomy fitting coat that is just the right weight for fall. For this time of year, a fingerless pair of gloves will work perfectly– they keep your hands warm, look amazing, and you can still use your phone. The grey is soft and polished looking, but you can never go wrong with black.

Not to be left out, DKNY has put a little bit of fun into their open drape cardigan with it’s dip dye coloring from grey to black (so slimming). The long length is very modern, and dresses up leggings (knit or leather) in a flash, especially with heeled booties to balance the length.

Vince - Ribbed Open-Front Knit Cardigan
Vince, too, has a real beauty of a soft open cardigan, in the palest of greys that is so inviting. The rib stitching and easy fit are the perfect combination, but we really like how they’ve made the front a little longer than the back, giving it an easy open drape with a bit more structure in the back. It makes it less swingy and a little more tailored, so it works nicely with trousers for the office (though it is certainly jeans appropriate).

A cashmere open wrap sweater is a cold weather essential, especially in grey this season. Club Monaco’s version even has pockets with leather trim, giving it just a bit of edge that we really like. But it is still relaxed with a wider body, making it endlessly versatile. It looks great with ponte pants or skinny black jeans and a shell or tee, but you can also wear it over a slim sheath dress for a classic look. You can even dress it up with coated black jeans and boots for a night out. The neutral grey is timeless.

Belford, one of our favorite sweater lines at Mark Shale, continues to create some relaxed fitting and well made pieces this season. The deep jewel tones of this tunic style sweater are so saturated and beautiful, especially this pine green. The fine knit of the wool makes it seasonally appropriate, while not too heavy, and looks great with black pants or jeans.

We’ve always been a fan of Joie’s beautiful blouses and knits, and this sweater is a true win. The turtleneck – so popular this season – is oversized, so it’s not too tight, and looks equally chic when you don’t fold it over and just let it naturally scrunch down. The tweed fabric is super soft and a nice mid-weight, which works perfectly with the relaxed style. This grey is so season-right, but it comes in camel tweed too, that is a true classic. Both look great with your favorite jeans or cords, but easily pair with a slim skirt and pumps or oxfords for a workday look.

AllSaints is known for their cool, sometimes edgy, contemporary clothing. And within their line, they have some universal pieces that are just amazing for everyone. Many of their sweaters fall into this category, as many (like this one) have a more relaxed fit, and come in easy, mid-weight fabrications so you are comfortable inside and out. This asymmetrical button up cardigan is truly a design inspiration in its simplicity. When you button it up, it creates the perfect drape at the waist that not only makes your cardigan infinitely more interesting than most, but it quietly conceals any lumps or bumps. It looks just as great open. The tailored style looks professional with slim trousers or ponte pants for work and easy with skinny jeans on any casual day. The deep burgundy is our favorite, but it comes in 2 equally beautiful neutrals.

360 SWEATER makes modern fitting sweaters in relaxed silhouettes that work on everyone. The looser fit of this cashmere crewneck is a staple that you'll love for years to come. Nothing flashy, just a truly quality sweater. We adore the rich navy with skirts, trousers, or jeans. Vince also does an amazing cashmere crewneck with a beautifully neutral intarsia pattern, if you are looking for a basic with just a little bit more.
