Get Bundled Not Bulky In Fall's Best Sweater Coats

There's (finally!) a chill in the air, and the time has come to splurge on a great fall weather transition piece. You want something that's not too stifling—don't worry, you'll be able to break out your puffer coat in just a few short weeks—and not too lightweight. A chic but cozy sweater coat is the perfect piece for fall, as it keeps the chill off without adding unnecessary and unsightly bulk.

When you think of sweater coats, don't confuse them with housecoats. You don't want to look like you're wearing a bathrobe out of doors, after all.There are plenty of luxury sweater coats out there that are sleek and stylish. Stella McCartney's cable knit wool/cashmere coat ($1,495) could never be mistaken for a robe, with its shiny buttons and knotty pattern. Diane Von Furstenberg's Longoro crocheted sweater coat ($595), with a high neck and artful double breasting, transitions perfectly from outdoor to indoor. And classics like Juicy Couture's marled coat with tie ($298) and Gap's shawl-collar sweater (a steal at $68) are comfy standards that will never go out of style.

If cable knitting isn't your thing, opt for a more demure version of the sweater coat. Theory's Verdana coat with built-in scarf ($295) is an understated pick, and CO-OP Barneys New York's girly swing sweater coat ($238) is so feminine and pretty.
