Daytime temps may still be mild, but the changing leaves, damp days and chilly nights are all pointing towards Autumn.  This means sweater weather is upon us, and it's going to stick around for a while.  Rather than dread the colder months - as so many of us do - embrace them and the cozy sweaters they require.

There are a few essential sweaters needed to get you through Fall, Winter and early Spring.  The one you will probably get the most use out of is a lightweight, cashmere turtleneck.  Invest wisely here - a good cashmere piece can last you years - choose a timeless, flattering silhouette that you won't tire of.

An oversized cardigan will be your second go-to, it's a super versatile piece that you'll grab again and again.  Wear it over a dress and tights with your favorite felt fedora for a spunky day-time look, throw it on with your workout gear post Pilates, and of course belt it with jeans and a chambray shirt and suede booties for an easy weekend look. 

A causal, graphic pull-over is another workhorse, especially on the weekend. It's a fresh alternative to a sweatshirt and you'll feel more polished wearing it.  

Just for fun, pick a novelty piece.  It'll be hard to choose between the two, but we suggest either a sleeveless tunic that can be layered over tees, dresses and under a blazer or a poncho that you can wear with EVERYTHING.
