Sweater weather is an annual rite of passage we basically count down the days to after months of heat and humidity. The idea that there's a piece clothing that's comfy enough to slouch on our couch in and cool enough to be a dressed-up part of our daily uniform is an underrated blessing. But we're not just talking about any old sweater you have lying around. The real crème de la crème of the knitwear we're eyeing adds more dimension than just muted neutrals — they're about packing in as many striped colors as we can.
Gone are the sailor-turned-French girl stripes of summer. This fall, we're looking towards a bigger and bolder take on the classic print — thick and colorblocked. From two-toned sleeves to asymmetrical sizes, the bright options ahead are modern takes on the '70s sitcom styles of the past. So if you're looking for a 2017 version of something Marcia Brady would wear, well, you've come to the right place.
