Layer Up! 14 Sweaters Perfect For Fall

We know, we know — it's basically still summer outside (although, can we talk about the perfect day we're having today?). But, even though the weather hasn't gotten the memo that fall is in the building, we're pretty sure the temps will start to drop any minute now. Hey, a girl can dream, right?
So, in the interest of getting into that autumn spirit, we're starting the preparations a little early. We've staked out every apple fest and corn maze in the DMV, gotten our decorative gourds out of storage, and packed up our summer duds. And, to help us through these in-between times — when it's hot during the day, chilly at night, and freezing in our office (really, what is it with that A.C.?) — we turn to layers, layers, layers.
Sweaters of all kinds are the building blocks of a chic and functional cool-weather wardrobe, and this season's pieces offer something for everyone. We've gathered up all the best in lightweight pullovers and cardis so that you can build one fabulous fall 'fit — just click through for a first-aid kit packed with knits.
