Sweater weather is upon us! It’s still technically fall, but with temperatures quickly dropping, I think it’s better to dress the part than freeze your ass off. Now is the time to fully embrace knits!

This sweater keeps me warm even when it’s freezing outside.

Totally random, but I’ve recently noticed that alpaca-blend sweaters are making their way into every store. I guess regular wool and cotton just aren’t good enough anymore? Either way, alpaca blend will keep you warm, and it’s a nice change from other fabrics that you’re accustomed to wearing.

Nowadays, I am totally digging V-neck knits paired with cigarette trousers. It’s such a simple yet polished look that can be worn for various occasions.

No matter how much my friends and family make fun of me, I will always be a sucker for an oversized grandpa cardigan. Actually, all oversized everything. But cardigans are especially comfortable and cozy. 

They’re perfect for those “today I don’t feel like doing anything” days. And when it’s less than 50 degrees outside, I really don’t feel like doing anything.

I, for one, can’t let go of a cropped top no matter how cold it is. Even if I’m not bearing my midriff, I still love the way a cropped sweater looks with a pair of high waist jeans or a skater skirt.

If you’re headed to the office, try a pencil skirt with one of your favorite sweaters and a pair of pumps. If you want to layer your look, wear a collared blouse underneath. If you feel like your outfit is dull or too simple, remember to accessorize with a hat or statement jewelry. Add the finishing touches with your favorite lipstick and you’re good to go.

How do you rock your knits?
