One of the best things about the change of seasons from summer to fall, in my opinion, is the return of sweaters to the wardrobe. Days are slowly turning chilly as the calendar changes, which means its sweater weather. Whether you are going to be wearing old favorites that last season after season, or looking to add some new pieces to your wardrobe, here are some of my favorite and essential sweaters for fall 2013. fair isle crew (1) in a soft oatmeal and navy combination, perfect for the season. Fair Isle sweaters are a staple in my wardrobe, and are perfect for transitioning from late fall into the winter season. Brooks Brothers. (4) Chunky sweaters always make a statement in the fall. They are versatile in that they can act as outerwear during early fall and transition into layering pieces as the weather turns colder. GANT has an array of great options such as chunky turtleneck pictures above. (5). For the GANT Fall 2013line the collection is entitled “New York Stories and Collegiate” They garnered inspiration from the East Coast and quads of the Ivy League schools. I love this infusion of style and the return to East Coast inspiration. The pieces are quintessentially fall, and perfect for the man about town. Considering adding pops of color to fall looks. Sweaters are a great way to accomplish this. Fall style is dominated by darker hues such as navys and olives. Add a bright sweater under a navy blazer for interest. Cashmeres are perfect for layering and are available in bright tones such as this vibrant blue v-neck from J.Crew (6). This fall opt for a mix of classic and fun. Do not be afraid to wear a bold color under a blazer, or a fun print. Traditional styles such shawl collars and cable knits continue to be great options and will last you season after season.
