The New Cardigans

Draping cardigans and interesting shapes abound among new sweaters this fall. If you are like me, you probably still have a lot of sweaters from seasons past, in that case I would suggest just picking out one or two that are really different from anything else you've got, and sticking with those. No need to duplicate what you already have. These are a few of my faves -

This Autumn Cashmere cape is a gorgeous shape, perfect for casual dates or even with trousers in a chilly office -

This cozy looking cardigan also looks great either worn casually or to the office-

Autumn Cashmere Classic Rib Drape Coat in Frost

You could also put a belt over it at the waist and make it look very different.

I have been in love with this adorable Free People caridgan since I first saw it -

Free People Cozy Cable Cardigan in Oat

It doesn't look like much maybe, but it strikes the perfect casual note with it's shape and color, and the stripe and scarf. Can't you imagine this for a fall apple-picking outing?

I also really like this Smitten chunky lambswool sweater coat,

Women's apparel: Smitten Chunky Lambswool Sweater Coat - Dark gray

Its a little pricy, but this is something you will have for years, and even better, if you are pregnant or planning to get pregnant, since the buttons are only at the neck, you can wear this throughout your pregnancy. As your belly grows, the sweater will just hang open. Very cute!

For a lovely and very inexpensive cardigan check out this adorable option from Old Navy -

Women: Women's Cropped Sweater-Knit Swing Coats - Marshmallow White

It is very cute on, and comes in several colors including purple and navy. It also only buttons at the neck, so again it's great for pregnant women.
