Wool Asymmetrical Peplum Sweater
Tory Burch
Sold by: Tory Burch

Fit Guide
Tory Burch really wows with this elegantly striped sweater. The nod to the retro inspiration comes through in a subtle way with its variegated stripe in gorgeous shades of deep red and blues. But more important than what inspired the style is what it does for you…the peplum shape works with the angled stripe to really slim the torso and show off your waist. Sweaters don’t often create such great shape, but this one does – making it a beautiful option with a pencil skirt for work or with dark jeans for a stylish night out. It also comes in solid black (also through the ‘shop it’ button), which really shows off the style. The modern fit is available in XS-XL.

Sweater Style: What Every Lady Needs This Season

The calendar says Fall kicks off this week, which means it is perfectly appropriate to talk about sweaters. And that’s a great thing for us because it’s one of our favorite things to talk about. Of course, sweaters are a staple in our cold weather wardrobes, so that’s really not the story. But finding truly amazing sweaters, whether they’re updates to add some trends of the season to your wardrobe or beautiful new timeless staples, that’s the part that gets interesting. This time of year, there are a lot of options – and especially this year, when sweaters are such a strong fashion story, too. Timeless colors like black, camel, ivory and grey are as prevalent as ever, and take on a fresh look in interesting cable knits, tweeds, and even furry trims. Intarsia and Fair Isle patterns highlight all the English and ski inspirations of the season, with blanket-style sweaters giving us endlessly cozy options. We even get to play with some pretty fashion colors, like rich burgundy and blue in every shade. Big and chunky; or, trim, sleek, and inspired by the ‘70’s, there are sweaters for everyone and for every occasion. So, we’ve done some digging to narrow down to some of the best.

Take a look at a few of our favorites here, and then head over to Fashion Finds, to see more of our favorites 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.

Milly - Milly Reversible A-Line Skirt
This Milly skirt is simply everything - and we mean that because it's reversible (black to grey) so there are countless ways to wear it. The contemporary fit isn't too slim, but provides just the right shape to create a slim line down the hips before it flares out. The waistband is wide and so flattering. We're directing you to Nordstrom's website through the 'shop it' button since they have the full P-L size range, but check out Shopbop for their great pictures where you can see the contrast of black or grey stitch and waist detail on both sides. This skirt will work in any setting - with a tailored sweater and heeled sleek boots for work, or an easy-fitting sweater with ankle booties and tights for a night out or a day around town.

White + Warren has made their mark on the world of cashmere with some wonderfully over-sized scarves and wraps in sumptuous cashmeres. This season’s poncho is drool-worthy. Not only is it as soft as a cloud, it’s the perfect weight. It will warm you up without getting you overheated. And the style is endlessly versatile. As shown, you can see how it’s a pretty poncho that you can simply layer over any outfit (really, anything from a simple tee to a button down and any bottoms work). Alternatively, because of the gorgeous light cashmere, you can also wrap it around your neck, as a cozy scarf, using the neck opening as a loop for your scarf. Click through the ‘shop it’ button and look at the 2nd image to see what we mean. You’ll also see that it comes in pale grey, and you won’t go wrong with either.

With the trend of intarsia pattern taking hold this season, LINE offers a version we love for its deep colors and relaxed silhouette. The black and olive green combination make it an easy go-to for your favorite black leggings, since the shape is fluid and drapey – covering your behind and hips with stylish ease. The complimentary border pattern gives it a polished finish that really steps it up from similar sweaters our there, which is just the kind of detail we’ve grown to expect from LINE – they know how to make a quality sweater that it is just a little more special than the rest.

We don’t know if we love the color or the fabric more…let’s call it a lucky draw. Rebecca Taylor’s use of mohair creates a feminine and airy finish that really pops this cobalt blue color. It’s a shade of blue that looks beautiful with almost every skin tone and is more versatile than you may think. Of course, it’s easy with denim or black or grey. It is truly stunning with camel wool trousers or even with a burgundy pencil skirt. This is a style that will work in any situation, from work to dinner, to a casual weekend brunch. The longer length makes it an easy choice with skinny pants, and can even be belted with a slim belt over leggings. A simple tank or shell is all you need to really let the sweater shine.

Autumn Cashmere

Fit Guide
Autumn Cashmere is another favorite of ours for, what else, cashmere. This sweater is a cashmere blend, which actually helps show off the interesting stitch details that make it so utterly amazing. The bell sleeve is just incredibly chic, and the v-stitch pattern along the sides of the body taper in the waist, while creating a very subtle peplum shape that eases around the hip and balances that sleeve perfectly. 525 America offers an all-cotton, amazingly priced version that comes in a couple of colors with the same slimming chevron waist stitch detail. That is what makes this sweater such a Find – it’s not always an easy feat for a sweater to create such pretty shape. And this style works with jeans or trousers, as easily as it does with a slim midi-length pencil skirt.

Nic+Zoe is a consistent favorite for their well-priced knits, especially their patterns, This colorblock open cardigan uses a beautiful color combination of blue and neutral tans and olives that look just as good with jeans, as they do with brown trousers for the office or a nicer dinner. The cotton/rayon fabric is a light alternative to the wools and cashmeres that are in abundance for the season. It still has a nice weight to it, but you won’t get overheated with your coat on or in a well-heated room. There is also a brown-yellow combination that will match all the same things.

BB Dakota - Jase Sweater Vest with Faux Fur
For some fashion fun, you don’t have to pay a fortune to get something really cute. This open sleeveless cardigan touches on 2 great trends of the season – intarsia pattern and fur accenting, culminating in a sweater that will make you want to go rent a log cabin somewhere in the woods. The knit isn’t wool so you won’t get too hot, but it’s still soft and cozy. And the fur – don’t worry, it’s faux. (Note: it may need to be fluffed up a bit when you first get it delivered. But once you do, it looks great.) Anything from a grey or cream thermal to a black turtleneck look great under it with your favorite jeans or simple black stretch pants.

Inhabit - Asymmetric Single Button Shawl Cardigan
Inhabit sweaters have been a favorite of ours for years, but since we used to carry them in our own retail stores, they haven’t been easy to find. So, we’re directing you to Inhabit’s own website where they offer you free shipping and returns for this gem of a cardigan. Their quality simply cannot be beat – their 100% cashmere is nothing short of luxurious. This silhouette will look current for years to come, with its easy shape and stylish side-button closure. It’s worth the investment. It comes in soft denim blue, and ivory, but this black tweed with white flecks is our favorite. It creates a look that can look appropriate for the office – almost like a relaxed jacket with black trousers and a shell or turtleneck – or worn casually with you favorite jeans, a tee, and your broken-in boots.
