At the slightest hint of crisp fall air, it’s every fashionista’s instinct to reach for knits, tweeds, and flannels. But instead of jumping feet-first into autumn fabrics (and overheating in the September sun), consider opting for a versatile, lightweight sweater to get you through the unpredictable summer-to-fall weather.
Not only do sleek, thin knit tops allow for more breathability, they’re also perfect for layering should you need to add a jacket or scarf. Consider the choices below in your search for the perfect early-autumn top, all featured in our Fall Into Fashion Sale.

The absolutely perfect throw-on-and-go piece, this cardigan features long, clean lines and is made of an ultra-light knit.
Paired with faux-leather leggings, this adorable hoodie, with its ribbed finish and dropped sleeve, feels both fresh and trendy.
A lightly ribbed fabric lends the perfect amount of texture. Try the top over a pair of high-waisted, dark wash jeans and ankle boots for a sleek look.
Adding an oversized cardigan to an otherwise nondescript outfit is a simple way to incorporate a current trend. The fuzzy finish of this cardigan makes it an especially cozy yet breathable outer layer.
Pastel stripes add the perfect amount of interest to this super-soft, crewneck pullover. Pair the sweater with a retro flared jean and a silk scarf for vintage fall vibes.
A surprising panel of eyelet lace makes this cropped hoodie ultra-contemporary and decidedly feminine. The strategically-placed sheer panel allows for a cheeky underpinning peek. Layer over a neon sports bra or cami for an eye-catching look.
Covered in leopard print, this draped cardigan is perfectly whimsical and absolutely wearable. The open front and flowy knit also make this sweater the ideal transitional piece.
The off-the-shoulder silhouette allows for a flirty peek of skin, while still being modest enough for crisp weather. Not too excited to rock a strapless bra? Layer this top over a collared shirt for a preppy-coastal vibe (and to make it bra strap-friendly).
A surplice neckline draws the eye inward, making it an almost universally-flattering style. The top flows away from the body and then gathers at the waist, which is especially exciting for those looking to enhance an hourglass figure.
To capture that trendy boho-chic, ethereal vibe, reach for this airy kimono. The subtle snakeskin print is absolutely a neutral — don’t be afraid to pair it with a pop of color or even another muted print.
Meet your new fave cozy piece. Curl up on the sofa with this ultra-soft button-down (and a glass of wine while you’re at it).
