Five Fave Sweaters for Fall

Hello, Fall: You’re Here! Well…mostly. We’re a little bit spoiled this time around with sunny seventies weather, but the crispness in the evening is the ultimate treat. In preparation for the cool months ahead, here’s a Five-for-Fall of all things sweaters.

1. The Sunshine Sweater

As the summer gates begin to close, certain words come out of hibernation: chilly, crisp, cozy. For the first time, soup seems fathomable, layers seem desirable, and sweaters become the best thing ever. The sunshine sweater is like that first sweater you pull off the top shelf, likely put on just as the sun sets. And an open back? We’re all over that one with colorful Nikibiki tanks!

2. The Coastal Sweater

Maybe it’s the dreamy blues of this tunic, or maybe I just have ocean stars in my eyes. Nevertheless, something about this sweater just whispers coastal to me. Packing a sweater was high on the list for my last ocean jaunt, as the main mission was to catch the sunset one last time before the winter months. The misty fog blended the ocean into the sky, creating the eeriest of beautiful blues. Cue the coziness!

3. The September Sweater

I’ll just preface this by saying that I am completely biased about this one: I am a fan of all things burgundy and beyond. I actually do have a sweater in this color that I can’t wait every year to wear in September (I even wore it in heavy A/C in August once). The allure for me is how fantastic it looks with boots in the fall, from black riding boots to caramel-colored handbags. Bonus: its sister names are delightfully tasty, and oh so seasonal. #wine #cranberry

4. The Annual Stew Recipe Sweater

Forgive me if I’m making anyone hungry, but this sweater transports me to the symbolic home-making portion of fall! I picture it worn during the time when sweaters aren’t just suggested, they’re practically required. And with any change in the weather, traditions are bound to emerge from the shelves where they’ve been resting. I’m seeing some stew making and streaming movies–plus this sweater as a trendy wrap blanket in the midst.

5. The Autumn Equinox Sweater

If you squint hard enough at this photo, it has “FALL” written all over it. The leaves decorate the sidewalk; the subtle cowl neck of the sweater doubles as a neck scarf. PLUS: It’s the prettiest pumpkin color of all. This color is made for all things fall, as it pairs well with mustards, olive tones and cognac accessories. Happy Autumn Equinox, everyone!

Chris is a self-confessed resale fashionista. A fashion recycler from an early age, she learned the consignment business from her mother, Jan Gauger, at omt divine resale in Lincoln, Nebraska. Chris moved to Portland, Oregon in 1990 and immediately felt at home, among her people. She started Here We Go Again Deluxe Resale Boutique in 1992 and has never looked back. The second location of her store opened in 1997. Chris loves pretty much everything about clothes and fashion, but she has a serious boot and shoe addiction that is fed by the two stores. It's doubtful she will ever be recovered. In addition to clothes, Chris loves mentoring young women and teaching them about what it takes to run and manage a small business. She has employed some pretty remarkable women over the years and is grateful for all they've done to help grow Here We Go Again. She is a Hoosier by birth, but was raised in Nebraska. She has two sisters who continue to run the consignment store there, and one brother who has sense enough to stay out of the way. Her husband of twenty-seven years, is a land use planner and the fix-anything-guru that Chris relies upon more often than she'd like.
