This next top looks so warm and cozy, we want it right now! The Reverse Jersey Tie Waist Cardigan by Lily McNeal is the perfect sweater to throw over your favorite tee. It hangs past the hip, has a hood, a tie at the waist, two pockets in the front, and long sleeves. Comes in two colors: rose and tan. If you like this sweater, you may like the very similar Striped Beach Cardigan as well.

The Shirt Snob found when we were in school, it was nice to have a good staple in many different colors. Here is one example, the Gateway Cable V Sweater by American Eagle. This sweater has a V-neck, cable detailing, is ribbed on the neck, bottom hem, and cuffs, and has their signature logo on the chest. It's simple, so when you don't want to think about what you're wearing to class but what to look presentable (i.e., not an oversized sweatshirt!), it's great to have on hand. And it comes in 11 colors, so you're bound to find a few that work for you.

This sweater is nothing super special, but it looks awfully cosy and warm, and we think it'd be great for the fall. The Holding Out Sweater by Joie is made of a cashmere and wool blend. It has a ribbed shawl collar, cable detailing throughout, large ribbed bottom hem, and four buttons down the front. Comes in two colors: heather grey and pecan.

When we first saw the Long Sleeve Mixed Pointelle Sweater by Catherine Malandrino, we thought we had seen it before. Turns out, it's very similar to the Open Knit Twist Front Cami we showed you last June. The knit sweater is made of 100% baby alpaca, so it's very soft. It has an empire waist, crossover bust with two inch banding and pleat detailing, and pointelle detailing throughout. It is semi-sheer and lined at the bust and has long sleeves. It also comes in three colors: noir, pearl, and rosewood.

Here's a great sweater for the fall from the Gap. The Shawl Cardigan is made from a blend of cotton, wool, and alpaca. It has a shawl collar, long sleeves, three wooden buttons up the front, two mini patch pockets on the front, elbow patches, and ribbed trim along the bottom hem and cuffs. It's available in two colors, heather grey and snow patch, and it's also available in tall and petite sizes too.

Here's a cute one for fall. The Cashcouer Sweater by Maria Bonita Extra is a wrap sweater. It has a tie at the waist, a V-neck, white trim at the front edges and the ties, and slightly puffy short sleeves. It's simple and elegant, a perfect top to wear when you want to dress up a bit.

As it's getting to be Back to School time, we think it would be appropriate to show you some tops from retailers you all know well, that you can also buy in your local mall. Here is one we really like, the Long-Sleeved Military Sweater Jacket by Banana Republic. This V-neck sweater has three buttons in the front, raw edging throughout, front button-flap pockets, rolled finish at the sleeves and hem, button tabs at the cuffs, epaulets at shoulders, and a notched collar. It is made of a cotton and alpaca mix. We think this would be a great top to wear over your more basic summer wear. Comes in two colors, black and smokey bear brown.

Now that it's almost August, it's time to start thinking about Fall and that means sweaters! Here's one that we really like, the Hand Knit Cable Car Coat by adam eve. This sweater is hand knit as the name says. It has cables running down it, ribbed banding at the cuffs and edges, and a shawl collar. It's also made of an alpaca and wool mix, and it comes in black and taupe. Now, the Shirt Snob is a bit of a knitter, so we know that this would take a long time to make by hand. We don't think the pattern looks very easy. Therefore, we feel this sweater is really worth it's price more than most tops we show.

Next up by Free People: the Pointelle Kimono Hoodie. This sweater has a wide ribbed waistband, wide 3/4 length sleeves, a hood, and antiqued copper buttons that go up the V-neck to where the hood begins. The stitches are large, so you should wear something underneath this. It'd be great to throw over your shirts for the fall. Comes in three colors, ivory, purple melange, and chai.

We know the Shirt Snob would be furious at us, but we just had to cover this rather interesting Gama-Owl Premium Track Jacket. We think the Shirt Snob would have to love the fact it's a limited edition of 250 Pieces, and who doesn't want to wear a cute owl on their track jacket. This stretchy number is made of 62% Cotton, 33% Polyester, 5% Elastane Knitted Fabric.
