Ease into Fall with a Versatile Long Cardigan

Part sweater. Part coat. The long cardigan is one of the most versatile layering pieces. And, the right layers make getting dressed so easy during the fall. When I got a sneak peek of J.Jill’s September collection, which launches tomorrow, I knew I had to have the long double faced cardigan.

A Long Cardigan is a Versatile Layering Piece

The J.Jill cardigan comes in a striking and classic combination of black and camel. It’s a color combo that looks sophisticated with everything. The cardigan also has the perfect length to create a long and lean silhouette no matter how you wear it. I’m wearing it today with cuffed jeans and a tank, but it looks equally fly with a dress.

We’ve been waking up to chilly mornings here in St. Louis, and a long cardigan has been an easy, cozy, and stylish choice for staying warm. As it gets colder, I can continue to rock my long cardigan by adding more layers. I especially love the look of a cardigan under a jacket.

Light layers are my go-tos for transitioning my summer style to fall. See another one of my fall transition essentials here.

Talking about fall essentials, I envision wearing my Madewell Transport Rucksack and my Chinese Laundry oxfords (now under $30) often. They’re both functional and fabulous pieces that evoke fall flavor.
