Late fall is a charming time of year. The first snowfall often brings with it the spirit of the holidays, while encouraging us to slow our pace and settle in with a hot drink and a good book.

As the weather cools, layers become necessary and we welcome them with open arms as we embrace a new change of wardrobe scenery.

Whether you're cozying up at home or heading out for festivities, a wrap sweater is a stylish and functional way to keep warm. These pieces can be long and drapy, fringed or flowing, belted or buttoned. Pair it with a basic tee, skinny jeans and sleek boots and you have a look that will keep you comfortably classy indoors or out.
