Sweater Weather

Finally! The most wonderful time of the year has arrived and it’s time to freshen up fall wardrobes. Below I’ve chosen my favorite 12 sweaters – I know it seems like a lot, but in a store like Hirshleifers a top 12 was very hard. Besides, they’re so comfy and easy to wear, you’ll wanna stock up.

If anyone has gone 0 to 100 real quick, it’s Fausto Puglisi. From being a relatively unknown designer to debuting his first collection just last year, Puglisi is now clothing all your favorite celebrities, editors, and street-style stars. Featuring geometric prints, bold colors, and flirty silhouettes, his rise to success comes as no surprise. I loved all the red, black, and whites, from his Fall 14 collection, and especially loved the Lady Liberty cameos seen throughout. See how I styled my two favorite pieces below.


Turquoise, Not Just For Summer

After Volunteering with a Rwandan HIV initiative, Ashley Pittman was inspired by Kenyan craftsmanship to launch her fair trade jewelry label. In collaboration with local artisans, Pittman uses indigenous materials (horn, bronze, semi-precious stones) to reinterpret and modernize old African designs.

I’ve always a been a big fan of turquoise, and I love how she uses it against contrasting colors and textures. Although I typically associate turquoise with summer, I think it looks just as good with chunky knits and longer sleeves. Pittman also gets bonus points for donating 10% of all profits to a health center and school in Kenya.
