You know those days when it’s cool in the morning, warm in the afternoon, and chilly at night? They can be a b*tch to dress for, especially if you’re out and about all day.
Option #1 is wearing a smartly layered outfit (think washed shirt, thin knit, light jacket, light scarf, etc) and carrying a bag in order to add/remove pieces as the weather changes.
Option #2 is to wear a breathable knit – thick enough to keep you warm, but breathable enough to get a breeze through it and stay cool when the sun pops up.
Here, 3 “sweaters” than can help you get through those up-and-down temperature days of early Fall.
1. Loosely Knit Drape
What I love about this sweater is that the color scheme, knit style and drape fit make it look elegant – and expensive. In truth it was under $20, on sale.
Bonus Tip: Early Fall is a great time for earth tones (browns, kahkis, olives) and deep saturated accents (burgundys, maroons).
Bonus Tip II: It’s also a great time to introduce suede footwear, and boots (or both).
Bonus Tip III: I’m typically not a big fan of synthetic fabrics, but I can get behind (or in) an acrylic sweater done this tastefully. (Some advantages of acrylic: affordability, colorfastness, strength, washability, cool to the touch)
Bonus Tip IV: Same versatile cargos as featured here.
