Want to stay warm while still looking great this winter? We think a great way to do that would be to wear the Don't Go Cashmere Blend Cable-Knit Cardigan by Joie. Made from a cashmere and wool blend, this sweater has a hood, four buttons at the front, a tie at the waist, banding at the bottom hem and arms, cables, patch pockets, and no sleeves. This would be a great way to still wear a cute long sleeved blouse you have even if it doesn't stand up to the cold winter months. Available in chalk and midnight.

This sweater is just wonderful. As Girlshop says, it's "funky, but ladylike," and we couldn't agree more. The Popcorn Sweater from By Francine is a blend of merino wool, nylon, and angora, has six inches of lacy knit trim at the collar and bottom hem, long puffed sleeves, and a hook and eye closure behind the buttons in the front. It is so textured and intricate, we just love it! What a great way to keep yourself warm!

Here's a cute wool kimono sweater that will keep you warm this winter. The Intricately Woven Kimono Top by Lauren Moffatt is semi-sheer with satin banding at the arms and sides, 3/4 length kimono sleeves, and a tie at the waist. We're sure you have a bunch of shirts in your closet that would look great with this!

There aren't too many kimono sweaters out there, but we've found a great one. The Kimono Sleeve Wrap Cardigan by LaROK is a perfect way to take this great look well into the cooler months. It falls well past the hips, has short kimono sleeves, a thick tie at the waist, and metallic detail throughout. Comes in three colors: bone, peat, black and desert. Supposedly Mandy Moore's worn this wrap as well, so if you're interested in dressing like the stars, you might want to consider this.

We just love this next top, it feels perfect for fall, especially with the color combinations. The Pullover by Paul & Joe is made of 100% cashmere, so you know it's warm and cozy. It has an orange and grey striped neckline that ties at the V-neck and hangs down the front. There is also pleated yoke below the bustline and short sleeves with a button on each. This sweater looks great with jeans or a skirt, we love how versatile it is!

We really like this next oversized sweater from Development. Made from a wool and cashmere blend, it has a wide rib collar, ribbing on the bottom, sleeves that hang past the wrist, keyhole with a button that can also be left open, and low side pockets. It comes in two colors, marble and black. If only they would say what it was called!

The Shirt Snob loves simple cardigan sweaters with buttons or zippers down the front. In times where you don't want to think too much about what you are wearing because you're in a rush, they are an easy way to look cute. Here's one we just found that we really like, the Cable Sweater by Project-E . This sweater has a hood, the signature XX's on the left bust, frayed edges, and six large buttons down the front. It is available in four colors: blue, grass, red, and sable.

Looking for something a little fun as the weather starts getting colder? Consider the Folklore 3/4 Sleeve Blouse with Pom Pom by Charlotte Ronson. This knit top has ruffle trim at the collar, a keyhold with a tie at the neck, 3/4 sleeves, and contrast yoke at the shoulders. But what really makes this top are the pom poms at the ends of the tie. Personally, the Shirt Snob would love to wear this as we'd love to play with the pom poms all day. If you like this, you may also like the Vest with Pom Pom Tie, also by Charlotte Ronson.

Here's a cashmere sweater that the Shirt Snob really wants, the Short Puff Sleeve V Neck Sweater by Catherine Malandrino. This V-neck has puff sleeves as its name implies as well as pleating at the bust, yoke detail at the empire waist, a rolled bottom hem, and ruching at the shoulders. It's simple and elegant and can be worn with almost anything. Comes in loden and pearl.

With the weather getting cooler, you need to start adding some cute sweaters into your fall wardrobe. Consider the Zigzag Hoodie by L.A.M.B. This knit pullover has banding at the hood, long sleeves, and zigzag stripes throughout. We think this will be a great transition piece until you start wearing a coat to keep warm. Comes in two colors, palomino and winter white.
