Fall Fav: The Fisherman Knit Sweater

If there is one thing you need to buy for fall 2013, it's an ivory fisherman cable knit sweater. You might actually have one waiting to be pulled down from the top of the closet. It's a winter staple for many that has been updated by luxurious designers such as The Row but you can also find them at old school retailers such as Brooks Brothers. Before we know it, the weather might be cool enough to wear it too.  

Alexa Chung is wearing a cable knit sweater she designed for Madewell.  While it's no longer available, they do have a few other options online now.

unfortunately, i have found that one needs to be very thin to pull off the cable knit sweater, much like everyone in these photos. fuller figures should stear away and go for a finer knit. but they are beautiful.

Ah such a classic for men and women - and looks so cozy and comfy for fall! I'm going to get a nice big oversized one, you've convinced me!
