Cool evenings, cool sweaters

Vanessa Bruno Athe Cable knit poncho

As sad as I am that summer is winding down, I love the change in the weather. Last week there was an article in the NYT’s on seasonal change (and fewer work hours) and how it’s important for our creativity and productivity- I couldn’t agree more. The cooler evenings foretell fall days to come, and although it is too early to bring out most of my new purchases, sweaters are the perfect transition pieces. This season, there are tons of new shapes, textures and prints beyond the classic cardigan. Thrown over a sundress or white jeans, a fisherman knit or intarsia print is the perfect topper for end of summer picnics and fireworks.

Marni Geometric wool-blend sweater

Isabel Marant chunky-knit wool and alpaca sweater

Proenza Schouler Intarsia knit pullover

Ralph Lauren Cashmere cape

And my favorite and most versatile piece in my wardrobe, the cashmere poncho. I throw mine over everything from jeans to cocktail dresses.

  • I like my fishnet cardigans…in white and/or black. I wear a tank top underneath and throw the cardi on over. By the way, I LOVE your blog.
