Okay, first of all, no, I’m not actually wearing a sweater today. We are in peak summer where I live, and I’ve lost all interest in wearing anything other than running shorts, tank tops, and flip flops. It’s just too hot to wear anything else.
My heart is squarely in autumn right now.
Usually, I resist fall fashion until the last minute, but not this year. I’ve gotten a jump on my fall wardrobe, and, since thinking about crisp, cool weather is a nice escape from the oppressive heat, how about if we indulge in a little fall preview?
First up — this sweater from And Other Stories.
A good striped sweater is a capsule staple — and yet I haven’t had one in my wardrobe. I just haven’t been able to find a striped sweater that checked all my boxes.
This sweater is a tightly woven jacquard knit — which means it won’t sag or lose its shape, like some sweaters do. It’s wonderfully soft and not itchy whatsoever. There are a few touches that feel designer to me — the wide sleeves, the stripe placement, the not-too-short-not-too-long length, the drape. Plus — win of all wins — it’s machine washable!
