What Do You Wear In The Fall?


Sweater weather is better weather

Sweaters are a major piece in my Fall/Winter wardrobe. 

They can add the pop to any outfit. I have a uniform that consist of a cashmere sweater, checked shirt, necklace, dark jeans, and brown leather booties, Brougues, or leopard flats for the Fall.

white cable knit sweater, gingham shirt, denim and saddle bucks. this might be the year i break and buy myself a pair!
I love the look of a collar peeking out from a pullover sweater.

Today I am going to show you outfits that include a sweater.

These are outfits I would absolutely wear. If there is a part of the outfit I would change I will tell you how I would make it more ME!! 

I hope what you are about to see, inspires you to pull out your sweaters, and start mixing and matching.

Houndstooth cardi
Black and White is always Right!!!

TJ Maxx Fall Lime Sweater 3 Ways @c c Corso Como
Mustard is a color that not everyone can wear, but it is a color I like to wear. 

The only thing I would change in this outfit is the bracelet, I would have a gold large chain bracelet with this combination. 

I would also prefer the leopard shoes to be without the silver studs.

love this look for fall
I would change the shoes to a black loafer for this particular outfit, but I love the combination of camel/tobacco with the denim blue and black.

Pink and Camel for FALL
Speaking of camel! I love pink with camel. In fact I am coveting this sweater for my Fall wardrobe. I would like to add a bit more pink this year to my fall colors that I already have in my wardrobe.

sweater coat, scarf
Don’t forget about sweater coats in a neutral color! I have a dark camel/tobacco sweater coat that I love to wear in cooler weather. I usually wear it with my dark washed jeans.

Yellow and polka dot


navy. great looking zipper detail on sweater
Look for sweaters with details as pictured above. The little zipper is just the right touch to allow the polka dot blouse to peek out.

Ralph Lauren Black Label
Ralph Lauren always does a classic look. Notice the leather detail on the shoulder. 

This one detail elevates the style of this sweater to a higher level. If this were in camel, it would be in my closet!!

I have a few sweaters on my radar that I would like to add to my wardrobe this year…….

A camel sweater with elbow patches…….

elbow patches on cardigans,♥

An off-white cable knit sweater……..

White Cable Knit Sweater-
A pink sweater, bright or even light will do…..

The Pink Pagoda: Pink Is For Fall
If you are just starting to build a sweater wardrobe I would start with three sweaters……

  • Black cashmere pull over
  • Cream cable knit
  • Your favorite color in a cashmere pullover

With those three sweaters you will be able to make many different outfits for your wardrobe.

I love when you do posts like this, you have a great eye for detail. I love the layers and the detail of the accessories on the wrist. I know pointed toe shoes are very in this year and I love how they look with skinny jeans. Heaven!

Love sweaters and I also love the look of laying with a button down, so chic and comfortable and practical. Love the examples you showed...I am ready for fall!

I love the sweater coat, but I don't have much opportunity to wear it in SW Florida...one of the few things I miss about living in New York. I love the "mustard" color you have featured this season. I introduced it to my wardrobe last year and this but I call it pear or citron. Love it.

Great tips!
It's time for another closet purge! My wardrobe needs have changed so much over the last five years, but my closet doesn't reflect that.
Yay for sweaters! Love them!

I'm a cardigan girl. I adore them. When I was working I wore them 4 out of 5 days a week. I did just buy a jean jacket that I'm anxious to start wearing if it ever cools off! All of your looks are fabulous. Favorite is that black and white houndstooth sweater.
