Weekly Theme: Keep it Cozy

If you understand the term Hygge, the Danish word to describe things that make you feel warm and comfortable, then you’ll understand the reason for this sweater. If you are the type that wears scarves inside, or hates wearing scarves outside, and want to be warm, this sweater is for you. Its got chunk, warmth and a tall neck to make sure you can channel you inner sea captain from the comfort of your home city. The only caution, if you have a notably shorter neck, then this one may not be for you. Wear with black chinos or jeans, olive chinos, or dark wash jeans.

Weekly Theme: Keep it Cozy

A comfy cardigan is a go-to in the colder months if you want to get cozy. This shawl collar cardigan from Peter Millar is super warm and comfy because it is made from wool and yak, meaning it is soft but also holds in a lot of warmth. The neutral colors make it great to wear with both black and brown and the shawl collar makes it formal enough for business casual with a button down underneath, or a great way to dress up a v-neck and jeans.

J.Crew V-Neck Cashmere Sweater

Jcrew Hearth Grey vneck cashmere sweater.jpeg

You're going out on a group outing to a rooftop bar in October, it's 78 degrees during the day but will likely dip into the 60's after the sun goes down. You have to go to work before heading to the bar and the office is a balmy 76 degrees thanks to Charlie and Jane, the two perennially cold people who are friends with the office manager. How does one prep for this? Easy- pack this J.Crew cashmere sweater in your bag and be prepared for it all. Its super soft, and goes with almost any shirt you need to layer, collared or not. The only rub with this is that it's dry-clean only, so keep that in mind the next time you go to the cleaners. Plus a cashmere sweater for under $100 is a pretty decent find, so snag this while you can, and be prepared for your happy hour chill out.

Jack Wills Ettington Crew Neck Long Sleeve

We are getting to the point in the season where the beach or lake is still an option for weekend plans, but the nights are starting to cool down. Making this Ettington nautical-themed long sleeve from Jack Wills the perfect top to keep you comfortable. It fits somewhere in between a shirt and a sweater, since it is fairly light with some added chunk, making it the right weight and sleeve length for a cooler night out on a boat, near a bonfire, or a step out to the local watering hole after 7:30 pm. Note: This shirt has a pretty thick neck hem that some may need to get used to, but it adds to the look so we'll take the 15 minute adjusting period as our cross to bear when throwing these sailor-inspired stripes on. We suggest wearing it with jeans, fitted khaki chinos, or solid navy shorts.

Boden Turner Sweatshirt

Everyone has a sweatshirt they lounge in, like this one, but not all sweatshirts play well for both lounging and a layering. This Boden Turner Sweatshirt achieves this hard-to-reach limbo by combining comfortable cotton with a washed look with vintage jersey-style stitching that accentuates your shoulders. This sweatshirt is great for layering on the cooler days, but can also be worn by itself when hanging around the house. Another nice feature is the wider cuff at the bottom of the shirt that helps keep the sweatshirt from riding up. We suggest you wear it with a blue button-down and jeans for a relaxed yet thoughtful look.

Everlane Crewneck Cashmere Sweater

A high-quality, soft cashmere sweater is a  closet standard for any young professional. This sweater from Everlane is made of 100% Mongolian cashmere, which is slightly less expensive than its European or Japanese sourced counterparts. That doesn't mean this sweater will be scratchy or pill like the hybrid wool fabrics though, the 100% cashmere is super soft and the slim fit makes this sweater lay nicely without bunching up around the midsection. Note: this sweater is dry clean only because of the higher quality of the fabric, so don't accidentally throw it in the wash if you want it to remain the same size, and soft.

River Island Navy Knit Crew Neck Sweater

If you haven't heard of River Island, it's most likely because they haven't really made it to the states yet. But don't discount them, they are one of the premier clothiers on High Street in London. Their sweaters, or Jumpers, as the Brits call them, are super soft, mostly because they aren't made from cheap wool or cotton, or wool or cotton at all. They make their amazingly soft sweaters out of Acrylic, Elastane, and Nylon, just like that really soft Neff beanie you always tote around. This also makes them machine washable, and resistant to shrinking, which is great for the accidental "Oh no I put my wool sweater in the dryer and now it might as well be sold at Baby Gap" kind of moments. Pair this with light colored jeans or gray chinos for a stylish, yet comfortable look in the colder months.
