We the People Style

Sweater weather is the most delightful thing about fall, even though it is more basic than a pumpkin spice latte. Seriously though, who doesn't love to wrap themselves up in something soft that lets them forgo the jacket, boots, and 10 other layers they'll have to suit up in come winter? The air is crisp, the sun is shining, the cashmere feels good and looks good… Everybody's happy.

To make something good even better, it turns out we're not the only ones who are excited—our fashion editor friend's over at Who What Wear have been eyeing the funky cardigan trend and cuddling up in some cozy and cute pullovers.
