Sweaters at the start of fall

The end of white jeans and dresses means the start of sweater season for me (although I have been cheating on that whole no-white-after-Labor-Day thing). It is somewhat early in the season to begin wearing sweaters, but I've devised five cute ways to wear cozy knits before you really have to start adding the layers. 

The Sweater Mini: It's not yet time for the full-on wool sweater dresses to be brought out, but you can still wear a cute, lightweight sweater dress. Roll up the sleeves and pair it with a long necklace and a messy top-knot bun.

Sweater + Shorts: I'm a huge fan of this cable knit cream crew-neck sweater Gwyneth is sporting here, but what makes it even more seasonal is the fun navy/polka dotted shorts. Just because white shorts are banned doesn't mean all shorts have to see the back of your closet as well.

Sweater + Sequined Mini: This is my favorite look, but also probably the most difficult to pull off! I've been noticing the sweater and sequined skirt trend all over Pinterest for the past few months, and I think it's a great look for the fall, as long as you find the right looking skirt. For this look, gold sequins are the way to go. 

Liquid Leggings + Backless Sweater: It's a shame this sweater is sold out, but I'm on the hunt for one just like it. I've always loved tops/sweaters/dresses that show a lot of back, and I think combining a sweater like this with black liquid or leather leggings would be the perfect match for a day (or even a casual night) out. 

'For the Home Only' Look: This picture has "lazy fall Sunday" written all over it. Definitely a look meant for staying in, I love the thought of an oversized sweater, a cup of coffee and my Bon Iver playlist on repeat for a chilly fall afternoon. 


  1. I love how comfy all of these look - it's making me want hot chocolate, blankets, and hockey games!
