Is anyone else trying to hang on to those last days of summer as much as I am? With a lot of us still experiencing hot and steamy weather, the thought of bundling up in cozy sweaters might seem as foreign as a trip to Neptune right about now. But when it starts getting a bit nippy out, you’ll be ready.

Many of these pieces are transitional, most great for layering, all of them fabulous.

Boden comes through with the classic Rosslyn Fluffy Cardigan. Perfect for layering, you’ll be reaching for it throughout the year. Comes in four colors, including a “cool early spring nights” peony pink and my personal favorite, emerald green. ($130 via Boden)

A classic, comfortable and flattering silhouette, this sweater dress from Boden adds interest with a bold graphic print and gold buttons in the back. ($170 via Boden)

Contrasting knits and short sleeves make this Club Monaco sweater perfect for early fall. Layer with a thin turtleneck or long sleeved tee for colder days. Comes in beige and black. ($269 via Club Monaco)
