Hot cocoa, the crunch of newly fallen orange and red leaves, pumpkin patches and apple orchards, early sunsets and cozy fires. As a New Englander, I am spoiled by fall weather. Hey, we pay the prize with awful winters. But fall is just perfect. And what else do I adore in addition to those key autumn elements listed above? Sweaters!
A good quality sweater will last you forever and pairs with just about anything. I’m a sucker for the traditional, casual, comfy-cozy jeans + sweater combo. I also love wearing them with skirts and a thick pair of tights in black or a fun color or print. If I’m feeling particularly lazy, or maybe under the weather or lounging at home, sweaters are perfect with a pair of sweats or yoga pants. They actually add a kind of “dressed up” effect.
No matter how you style your sweater, though, there’s no denying they are great as we slip into increasingly cool weather. Here are 12 sweaters I just can’t live without.
