The Lovely 20's

Fall into Fall: Draped Sweaters and Jackets

Posted in Uncategorized by Virginia on August 24, 2010

I am seeing a lot of draped sweaters and jackets for this upcoming season and, quite frankly, I am madly in love with the trend. It adds a twist to staples like blazers and flair to heavy sweaters. Some of my favorites below:

This is the Arilette cardigan from DVF. The shiny black and gold print makes the cardigan look like a brocade jacket in this picture – but it’s actually 100% wool. Isn’t it gorgeous? Avail at

Vince draped shearling jacket. This jacket has that nonchalant coolness that is very New York. Found on

Missoni “tweed” knit cardigan. Chunky knits are hot this season and one in a Missoni print is highly covetable. I love that this heavy knit has the draping because it adds flair to what otherwise could have been a boring grandma piece. Available at

Alice + Olivia Michael leather-paneled wool blazer. This is arguably my favorite piece out of the bunch. It is hard to tell in an image online but the construction is amazing. The leather paneling across the shoulders makes the jacket look sharp and structured. But the wool draping adds a softness that totally works. It has both edge and romanticism. If you haven’t noticed from previous posts, I am all about contradictions that work. Found on

Come back soon for more Fall into Fall pieces! Next stop: Anton Heunis jewelry.

    I love the structure of the Alice + Olivia! The leather paneling is definitely a needed detail.
