Animals on sweaters: not just for kids! They can be chic and sophisticated and add a dose of whimsy to the most serious adult wardrobe. Trust me. Or don’t, and click through this gallery of must have animal sweaters. But warning: if the fox wearing glasses sweater is sold out before I get a chance to buy one, I’m blaming you.
I am still pretty securely in denial that summer is ending and fall is just around the corner, but in those rare moments when I allow myself to consider the cold temps on the horizon, its been to think about buying sweaters. I have been jonesing for this black sweater with leather pockets from J. Crew for, like, a month now, but $158 is a lil’ much. So when I came across this ASOS version — that I actually kind of prefer – for a third of the cost, I was like, Boom! Fall, get at me, bro! I am ready for you!

It’s waaaayyyy too cold to leave the house this weekend, so make the most of your indoor time by transforming an old sweater into a cozy new pillow cover. The process is surprisingly easy, and when you’re done you can cuddle up with the fruits of your labor and take a nice, long nap. [Brassy Apple]
A short-sleeved sweater seems, you know, to totally miss the point of being a sweater. Sweaters should keep you warm and cozy and protected. But! What a short-sleeved sweater lacks in arm-covering it makes up for with style. SS sweaters are great for layering — wear a long-sleeved shirt underneath, or a pretty, frilly blouse to dress up your winter wardrobe. Plus, the whole not having sleeves thing will make it easier to get your winter coat on. Promise, it really works.
After the jump, 10 short-sleeved sweater options, for your pleasure.
