Classic Pick: The Cardigan

The quickest way to transition your summer wardrobe into the fall is to add a cardigan. Thanks to our friend global warming, it might be months before we’re ready to wear coats but a cardigan will keep you at just the right temperature. Skip heavy wool versions and opt for lighter cotton until you’re sure fall has really arrived. Oversized slouchy looks will be popular this season as will belted styles.
