    2. A striped open cardi if you wanna take your summer wardrobe into fall. All those cute lacy tanks you own? Style them under the cardigan for immediate fall vibes.


    Promising review: "This sweater is way better than I expected. It is lightweight, perfect for fall, the colors can go with black pants to work or jeans on the weekend. And best of all — the lines match up on the side so it doesn't look cheaply made! The ribbed cuff makes is easy to scrunch up to wear as a 3/4 sleeve and the weave is just right for either a short-sleeve tee or long-sleeve blouse. This is my new favorite." —J Edwards

I machine washed on the delicate cycle, tossed in the dryer for a few minutes, then hung to finish drying, and the sweater still looks and feels exactly the same. Win!
