As summer winds down, stylish cads begin looking forward to fall (and the ensuing layers that come with such crisp days). Thankfully, it's at this expectant time that retailers start to receive their autumnal goods. And if you haven't embraced the cardigan yet, we've got fall's gateway sweater for you right here. Phillip Lim, known for his understated, yet finely-detailed clothes, offers this window pane sweater with a high collar and antique buttons—soft but sturdy, chunky without being bulky. If rushing the season is wrong, then we don't want to be right. Sweater, $646, and pants, $442, by 3.1 Phillip Lim, at Oak, New York.
Lim's Los Angeles store in West Hollywood is housed in a former auto body shop.
