With a fall full of cold, brisk mornings and then warmer, sun-filled afternoons, it’s sometimes hard to predict what the weather will have in store when getting ready for an early 8:30 a.m. class. Too cold for a T-shirt but too hot for a jacket is a day-to-day challenge that many Montrealers often face. However, this Fashionisto mastered the in between season look with a comfy knit that put him at just the right temperature for the day.
A knit sweater should be a staple piece in every Fashionisto's fall wardrobe. They're timeless, fashionable and arguably the most comfortable article of clothing you could ever own, next to a Snuggie, of course. They're perfect for an afternoon in the library, coffee at a café or a walk in the park. All in all, they're what helps students get through the four years of those cold morning walks to class and late night, warm exam-cram sessions.
This Fashionisto's sweater is a classic American Apparel knit. Their Fisherman Knit is a great option as it comes in almost every color, from ash grey to lavender, and it can be unisex too! For something more detailed, ASOS has traditional striped knit sweaters and patterned ones which will not only be great for fall, they’d also be great carry over pieces for the winter months ahead. Knits come in a variety of thicknesses and textures as well, giving you tons of variety for what to buy so you can find the exact sweater you want!
Hint: As the temperature continues to drop, you can still rock the cozy knit sweater by pairing it with a peacoat or leather jacket for added warmth.
