The thermometer gauge is slowly dropping—it’s time to open up the storage bins, untie the fall clothing bags and break out the warm and toasty clothes.
Knits have long been touted as the logical choice for fall and winter fashion due to their warmth and comfort. They are also versatile and effortless to wear and you can easily find some fashionable pieces to accent and expand your wardrobe.
From scarves to bags to comfy sweaters and pants, the best of fall knits are finally in season. Take a look at some of these top picks:
Cashmere Blend Knit Sweater
What do you do when you need something warmer than a thin, long sleeve shirt, but cooler than a heavy coat? A knit sweater will fulfill the need for a little extra warmth during the cool autumn months without making you sweat. And what better way to stay warm than with a little cashmere? Though cashmere has a sumptuous feel and it can be layered nicely with blouses and camis, sweaters made of 100% cashmere can get pretty expensive. Thankfully, you can find beautiful cashmere/cotton blend sweaters like this one at Orvis — same level of comfort without the high price tag.
Great fall accessories
A unique idea for fall knit fashion, this knit bag is a trendy way to bring these coveted fabrics into the warmer months of the year. This exquisite Juliaca Knit Bag from Peruvian Connection is fashioned with knit puma and alpaca. It is a one-of-a-kind piece and inspired by the owner’s anthropology research in the Andean marketplaces of Peru. It boasts a feeling of history and handmade comfort and will definitely garner a few looks.
Dance the night away in comfort
One of the highest-rated fall fashions is the knit dress. Designers have created knit dresses to look as alluring and stylish as their “stiffer” counterparts but without all of the discomfort. A ruched waist knit dress or Softwear knit dress from National is simple, yet stunning. It is fully lined and red-carpet worthy, yet robust enough to throw in the washing machine after an active night out on the town. Look for easy-to-wear style that is flattering on many body types.
Knit ballerina slippers
For the princess of comfort
To add a little uniqueness to these fall knit fashion finds, these ballerina slippers are not only stylish and adorable, they are completely comfortable. These lightweight slippers are perfect for lazy fall days by the fire or for lounging around on a brisk Sunday afternoon. Sold at Roamans for a pittance, they are made of soft, washable cotton jersey knit and available in 7 different colors and patterns.
