Sweater weather is here, y'all! Well, sort of... I mean, the temperature has dropped by a few degrees in Taipei, and the unbearable heat and humidity has definitely subsided. Plus, it IS already October and technically fall time, so who cares if it's actually still sunny and warm on most days, am I right?! It's time to dig out the knitwear, including cozy sweaters and cardigans!
I love shopping for new knits this time of the year, and have already been scanning the shops and Interwebs for some fresh, comfy pieces. For the past few years, we've both been trying to purchase more quality knitwear (instead of quantity), so have quite a few lovely pieces in our collections already. But, you know, there's always space for a few more...
After browsing online doing "research" for some new knits, we've decided to share with you the ones that we're obsessed with, and think would make a good addition to any closet. We've done our best to find items that are affordable, but still good quality, and mostly composed of natural fibers like cashmere, alpaca, mohair, cotton or wool. Also, it's always a good idea to buy your knitwear in neutral colors, because you'll be able to wear it for many years to come, and it's easier to mix and match with the coats and pants you already own.

Liesl is Wearing:
cardigan | H&M
jeans | Levi's
bag | Meli Melo

sneakers | Golden Goose
I love me a good over-sized cardigan, and added this mohair and wool blend one from H&M to my closet this fall. It's very reminiscent of the popular Acne Studios Raya cardigan (but at a fraction of the price!), and is available in this gorgeous camel color, a light grey and black melange.
Buy this H&M Mohair-blend cardigan ($69.99)
More sweaters I'm loving from H&M
I'm obsessed with this dark beige shade this year, it literally screams "fall!", right? It's also available in other colors if this is not your jam.
Buy this H&M Fine-knit sweater ($29.99)
For some reason I was really drawn to this mohair-blend knit in "Powder Pink". I think the shade is quite special, and can add a pop of color to your fall outfit without going overboard.
Buy this H&M Knit Mohair-blend sweater ($49.99)

Is there anything more luxurious than a soft, cashmere sweater? Yes, they can be pricey, but I've found some affordable options if you just have to have a few in your collection. All of these sweaters come in a variety of colors, so find the perfect one for you and #treatyoself.

More Cozy Knits from ASOS
ASOS has a huge selection of comfortable sweaters and cardigans, and after scanning through the endless options, I have found a few that I think would be great additions to any fall wardrobe this year.
Left: The color of this sweater is just so gorgeous, and is described as "Bleached Rose". I love how the sleeve slightly balloon out, and the chic mock turtleneck. Buy this ASOS Moss Copenhagen Cable Knit in Alpaca Wool Blend sweater ($98).
Middle: This chunky navy wool sweater looks so cozy, and is a timeless color to add to your collection. Buy ASOS Selected Femme Wool sweater ($87).
Right: The color of this one just jumped out at me; definitely perfect for fall! Buy this ASOS DESIGN Oversized Ribbed cardigan ($48).
Our Favorites from ACNE STUDIOS
Acne Studios is known for their quality and luxurious knits. They are a total splurge, and you should keep scrolling if designer items with designer prices give you heart palpitations. However, you do get what you pay for, and they are made from the softest mohair.
Buy this ACNE STUDIOS Raya cardigan ($480).
Buy this ACNE STUDIOS Dramatic Mohair sweater ($268).
Wool Winners from & Other Stories
A friend recently told me to check out the amazing sweaters from & Other Stories. I've heard about this store before, but have never ordered from them myself. I was blown away by the selection of cozy knits they have available this season, and just had to share a few of my faves.
Left: This alpaca and wool blend sweater just looks incredibly comfortable, and will look great with your favorite pair of blue jeans. Buy this & OTHER STORIES Alpaca Blend sweater ($99).
Right: I seriously want this over-sized brown sweater so badly! Not only is this shade extremely on trend this year, I don't own anything like it, and there's definitely a gap for it in my wardrobe. Buy this & OTHER STORIES High Neck sweater ($69).
I think both these turtleneck sweaters are just lovely. Obviously I have a thing for over-sized knits, and I think it's because all I want to do is throw on one of these sweaters with a pair of comfy leggings, grab a book and a blanket, curl up on the couch, and call it a day. On the left, buy this & OTHER STORIES Wool Blend Turtleneck sweater ($99), and on the right buy this & OTHER STORIES Wool Blend Turtleneck sweater ($119).
Comfy Must-Haves from MANGO
Left: This sweater is just gorgeous, and I really like the puffed sleeve detail. This color is extremely classic and chic, and can easily be dressed up or down. Buy this MANGO Puffed Sleeve Ribbed jumper ($69).
Middle: Another cardigan, y'all! I just find cardigans so easy to wear and style; just throw it on over a plain white t-shirt, put on some jeans, add your favorite necklace and voilà! Buy this MANGO Buttoned Long cardigan ($69).
Right: I've seen this sweater on a few of my favorite fashion bloggers, and I absolutely adore it! It's really big and everyone suggests you to size down, or buy your regular size if you like the chunky look. Buy this MANGO Wool-blend Knit sweater ($59.99).
