Crewneck Sweater

If you don't have a crewneck sweater in your closet, now's the time to purchase this versatile and classic style. This light brown cashmere option from Frank and Oak is available in two timeless colors and made with ethically sourced and naturally dyed yak wool that'll keep you warm all season. Keep it casual by pairing it with black skinnies and booties, or dress it up by tucking the sweater into a black denim skirt with tights and knee-high boots. And of course, both choices could use a pair of gold hoop earrings. ($129; frankandoak.com)
