Here in NYC, mother nature is threatening temps down in the 60s, which means it’s finally time to break out all those ahh-mazing fall goods we’ve had to stow away until now. But if you didn’t have a chance to stock up on your fair share of chunky knits (or if you’re not ready to take your parka out of storage), not to worry: we’ve rounded up the coziest made-to-layer sweaters for fall.
As a note, it’s best to pick wool blends knits like alpaca or merino—or, if it’s in your budget, a cashmere style—instead of cotton, which will just stretch and lose its shape, especially when layered over oxfords or dresses. So whether you’re pining for a comfy cable-knit number to pair with an A-line skirt or a wool-blended loose-knit to wear over a chambray button-down, we have the season’s best picks to carry you well past the holidays—because sometimes you’re just not in the mood for sequins and frills.
