It’s that time, y’all–sweater weather! With the official start of fall just a few weeks away it’s time to stock up on cozy sweaters to keep you warm during the cold-weather months. But before you buy wool and cashmere pullovers and crewnecks, don’t. This season it’s all about the long cardigan thanks to designers like Thakoon, Tracy Reese, rag + bone and DKNY who sent knee-skimming sweaters down their Fall 2014 runways. And if you think about it, the trend is quite genius. You can wear long cardis as outerwear during the fall, then layer them underneath coats and jackets when it gets super cold for extra warmth. Shop our faves of the season in the slideshow.
