Sweater season calls for options: chunky cable-knit crewnecks, wooly turtlenecks, fleece popovers, and one of our current favorites of the moment, long cardigans. The substantial style is a little like a coat you can wear inside—and outside, too, if you happen to live in L.A.
Duster-length versions add a bit of drama to an everyday T-shirt-and-jeans outfit, while thigh-length cardis make even lightweight dresses seasonally appropriate. Snuggle up in a cozy neutral-hued style by Zara or Kenzo, or add a bit of welcome color to your wardrobe with Iro's ice-blue knit or Marni's fun stripes. Either way, you'll thank yourself once winter officially rolls around.
