That image of Sigourney Weaver cuddling a pumpkin that’s floating around the Internet right now? That’s us. We may have a few scorching weeks left, but right now we’re dreaming of crunching leaves and slaloming down mountains (even though we’ve never touched a ski pole). We imagine ourselves relaxing by a softly crackling fire, sipping some sort of hot (spiked) autumnal beverage. Naturally, in said fantasy, we’re wearing a beyond cozy sweater.
We’ve had enough of sticky, hair-mortifying humidity and we’re ready for sweater weather: cashmere, cable knit, intarsia — the works. Oversized, bell-sleeved, fringed and embroidered, sweaters walked the Fall 2016 runways in all textures, patterns and sizes, giving us ample material for our après–summer mood board.
When it comes to hunting down the knits you’ll be wearing well into winter, we’ve done the legwork for you. Office-, campus- and couch-ready, click through the slideshow above to get all wrapped up in this season’s most stylish sweaters. (P.S.: Good news — you don’t have to give up the off-the-shoulder trend just yet.)
