Monday Obsession: Make This Your First Sweater Purchase

Monday

While we’re all beginning to mourn the final weeks of summer, let’s not forget the light at the end of the season: September is in sight, which means crisp fall afternoons and — drumroll — sweater weather! (And yes, the prospect of a good cable-knit gets us very excited.)

Mark the beginning of the long-awaited season with an unexpected pullover that’s sure to be a cold-weather mainstay. The Alexander Wang sweater pictured comes from Princeton’s high-end designer haven Zoe. It’s available online, but we suggest visiting the brick-and-mortar and making a day out of it. (The soon-to-come fall foliage is to die for.)

Shopping details ahead.

That’s why we were thrilled when an email landed in our inbox proclaiming a limited edition design-your-own-shoes collaboration with Stuart Weitzman.
