16 Sweaters to Make the Fall Transition a Breeze

About 99% of your transitional dressing woes can be solved with one simple solution: Put a sweater on it. Whether it’s actually a little chilly or your outfit just needs a little something else, put a sweater on it—keeping in mind, of course, that this includes the options of wearing them over your shoulders, around your waist, or actually on properly.

I say this with conviction because I once looked at sweaters as an afterthought, and rather than consciously shopping for the right ones, I simply wore whatever appeared in my closet (they have a funny way of doing that). But once I took them seriously and adopted this mantra, transitional dressing—and countless other outfit dilemmas—became instantly simpler to solve. Trust me.

Without further ado, shop 16 sweaters we’re loving right now!
