As we noted on Monday, fall is upon us. Here in the DC area the mornings are crisp, but the afternoons can still get a little warm. This means that transition pieces are a must, and lightweight, simple sweaters are the perfect item. The best part about sweaters like this is that they can be worn for work, or with jeans for a nice weekend look. These sweaters can also work triple duty, transitioning from summer into fall, throughout winter layered with a scarf or blazer, and to transition you from winter into spring. We prefer simple, single color pieces so that they can be accessorized for any occasion. Below are a few great, affordable options (especially given the endless sales at the retailers these days). Also check out the accessories to spice up your sweater finds!
