FashionFall Obsessions: Fisherman Sweaters

Normally, I look forward to Fall like I look forward to a cleaning at the dentist or cleaning out my fridge. But the unusual early start of warm weather has left me with a bit of ennui about Spring/Summer clothes. I’m ready to put away the pastels, the Skillrex neon, and topknots to embrace a darker, moodier fall. When temps dipped down last week to the 70s and I was waiting an interminable 10 minutes for the next 6 train, I street-style stalked this chic girl next to me. Standing apart from the aztec bandage skirt wearing lemmings at Union Square, she was wearing a white lace-edged handkerchief dress with a perfectly distressed, holey tan fisherman’s sweater that gently fell off one shoulder. The look was very “Oh, I threw on this sweater I inherited from my grandpa who has a compound in Nantucket because nights get chilly there.” It was a perfect transition outfit into Fall and one I can’t wait to emulate. Read on for my picks and some inspiration pictures of this look:
