Hello, Fall: You’re Here! Well…mostly. We’re a little bit spoiled this time around with sunny seventies weather, but the crispness in the evening is the ultimate treat. In preparation for the cool months ahead, here’s a Five-for-Fall of all things sweaters.
1. The Sunshine Sweater
As the summer gates begin to close, certain words come out of hibernation: chilly, crisp, cozy. For the first time, soup seems fathomable, layers seem desirable, and sweaters become the best thing ever. The sunshine sweater is like that first sweater you pull off the top shelf, likely put on just as the sun sets. And an open back? We’re all over that one with colorful Nikibiki tanks!
2. The Coastal Sweater
Maybe it’s the dreamy blues of this tunic, or maybe I just have ocean stars in my eyes. Nevertheless, something about this sweater just whispers coastal to me. Packing a sweater was high on the list for my last ocean jaunt, as the main mission was to catch the sunset one last time before the winter months. The misty fog blended the ocean into the sky, creating the eeriest of beautiful blues. Cue the coziness!
3. The September Sweater
I’ll just preface this by saying that I am completely biased about this one: I am a fan of all things burgundy and beyond. I actually do have a sweater in this color that I can’t wait every year to wear in September (I even wore it in heavy A/C in August once). The allure for me is how fantastic it looks with boots in the fall, from black riding boots to caramel-colored handbags. Bonus: its sister names are delightfully tasty, and oh so seasonal. #wine #cranberry
4. The Annual Stew Recipe Sweater
Forgive me if I’m making anyone hungry, but this sweater transports me to the symbolic home-making portion of fall! I picture it worn during the time when sweaters aren’t just suggested, they’re practically required. And with any change in the weather, traditions are bound to emerge from the shelves where they’ve been resting. I’m seeing some stew making and streaming movies–plus this sweater as a trendy wrap blanket in the midst.
5. The Autumn Equinox Sweater
If you squint hard enough at this photo, it has “FALL” written all over it. The leaves decorate the sidewalk; the subtle cowl neck of the sweater doubles as a neck scarf. PLUS: It’s the prettiest pumpkin color of all. This color is made for all things fall, as it pairs well with mustards, olive tones and cognac accessories. Happy Autumn Equinox, everyone!
