Sweater Weather

Bring on the cozy comforts and fall fashions because sweater weather is here. And whether you love a soft, oversized hoodie or a preppy cardigan, sweaters are the wardrobe staple you need now to stay warm and stay stylish.

Who doesn’t love a plush new hoodie? These are the ideal cold-weather layering piece and a great opportunity to add a pop of colour or pattern to your outfit. Prefer neutrals? Pick up a soft, earth-toned piece that’ll match any ensemble and keep you cozy all season long.

We love a casual piece but every now and then it’s nice to dress it up. Enter the cardigan. Throw it over classic basics like tees and tanks, pair it with a tailored blouse, or dress up your favourite leggings for an easy—and warm—seasonal look. Button it up or leave it open and look for options with pockets for chic practicality.

If the idea of wearing a blanket out and about is appealing, then a duster might be just what you need. These long-line sweaters offer the all-encompassing warmth and comfort of a throw blanket with the sophistication of a preppy cardigan. They’re the perfect complement under a long jacket or can take the place of a light coat on dryer days—just grab an infinity scarf and a pair of boots and get going.

Feel and look your best this fall. And stay warm!
