It's definitely time to start thinking about fall dressing, but depending on where you live, you may not need to start piling on the layers just yet. That's why these little beauties are so great. Like sartorial security blankets, they provide a little comfort and make you feel good. Knit from light cottons, featherweight wool and silk, they're not stifling when the sun is shining and provide a touch of warmth in the evening. The key is to keep them casual. You don't even have to worry about knotting them up—just sling it over your neck and tuck the ends into your jacket or cardigan and call it a day. It's the easiest way to add some color and texture to your early fall kit, whether you're wearing a suit or a T-shirt.
