We're all about versatile pieces — especially ones that let us borrow from more closets

The #1 reason why cooler temps don't bother us at all? Sweater weather! While the ultimate layering piece never goes out of style, there many iterations to try this season. One standout is the unisex cardigan. These open knits can be comfy, slouchy, tailored and of course, versatile enough to work for him and for her. At the end of the day, sharing is caring! Lucky you if you can share the cost of these with your GF, BF or BFF.

As far as knitwear is concerned, geek-chic never goes out of style. To play up the vibe, pair loose-fitting cardigans with white button-ups, and feel free to accessorize with glasses—even if your vision is 20/20.
