While it’s technically fall, the weather is still warm enough that you can’t quite dive head first into all of the shiny new pieces in stores right now. Sure, you could be a suffering street-style star and wear a seasonally inappropriate coat, but what normal person does that? Instead, embrace the tights-free weather and incorporate cozy touches into your outfit. Take this short-sleeve cashmere sweater in a rich shade of green — it’s light enough that you won’t sweat, but feels fresh enough to enliven a simple work outfit. Paired with a tailored wool skirt and a weirdly shaped bag, it’s an office-friendly look that you can get away with at even the most conservative of places — without resorting to a suit.
