With a sweltering heatwave governing our every move, it comes as no surprise that the idea of fall weather — more specifically, fall fashion — is all we can think about. Fighting the urge to toss our summer wardrobe in storage to make room for an influx of cozy knits, corduroy trousers, and plaid blazers is almost too hard to resist. But alas, here we are, living in slip dresses and denim cut-offs by necessity alone. While waving goodbye to summer has its pitfalls (sayonara summer Fridays!), we've decided that this heat is officially so last season.

Meet the 2018 way to wear striped sweaters. Before you argue the not-so-newness of this particular style of knits, take a look at these game-changing upgrades ahead.
