Battle of the Sweaters! Who Will be this Fall’s Champion?


Now that I have successfully stripped my entire wardrobe of white (it is after Labor Day after all), I have plenty of filler space for fall sweaters. Cuddly, cozy fall sweaters that make me want to rake leaves, eat toasty clam chowder and read Edgar Allen Poe (can you tell that I missed the fall?)

My search for autumn clothes heeded the undoubted result that Burberry has the best fall sweaters this season. My personal favorite was a wine red Tweed Knit Cardigan by Burberry Prorsum. With a chic little collar and ruffles at the bottom of the sweater, this is my favorite piece by far…..but it costs $1495.00. Yeah, right!

So, a had to move my focus to my other favorite….a dark chocolate brown button up sweater by Lafayette 148 New York. What the sweater lacks in vibrant color, it makes up for with its subtle ruffles and side buttons. Oh yeah, and its costs much less than the first pick ($1,197.00 less to be exact). Alright, so I can’t afford that one either.

What a cute sweater that won’t suffocate you wallet? Buy a gray and red striped sweater from Target (that’s Tar-zhey the queen of cheap chic) for $35.  Designer? No. Cozy and affordable? YES!!

    The first two sweaters are pretty amazing but am loving the “on a budget” option even more!!I need to go to Target soon, my fall wardrobe needs updating. 🙂
