Fall might be New York’s most fashion-obsessed season, but let’s be real—some days, you just want to throw on your go-to merino pullover and call it a day. (Seriously, when did it get so chilly?) Good news: That snuggly-soft sweater also happens to be one of the most stylish things you own. Here are five outfits that prove it.
WITH A STRUCTURED PENCIL SKIRT
A utilitarian turtleneck becomes old-school glam when paired with a fitted skirt. But leave your hair tucked in à la Olivia Palermo to modernize the look.
OVER A SLIP DRESS
A silky, lingerie-inspired dress makes for a nice textural contrast against a fuzzy pullover, and a monochromatic palette ties it all together.
WITH A NECK SCARF
Tie a silk square over your favorite crewneck and voilà: new sweater (and effortless French-girl vibes).
OVER A SHIRTDRESS (AND PANTS)
Extend the life of a summery poplin dress by throwing a chunky knit over it. Add a pair of straight-legged crops and congrats: You just became a Jedi-level expert in layering.
WITH A LEATHER JACKET AND JEANS
When all else fails, baggy sweater + moto jacket + jeans is a foolproof fall-outfit formula—one that leaves room for an extra slice of pie.
