The first day of fall is the best time of the year - to start thinking about super comfy cosy sweaters.
For many of us, we have our old favourites stashed away in the closet, wearing every year because they are oversized and offer a comfy cosiness you can only find when wrapped in a blanket.
But for others, who like to scour the internet and fashion magazines for the latest must have's there are an array of choices out there, from bold pieces to soft fluffy muted sweaters.
Once sweater weather has started, we all need a little fall outfit inspiration and insight on how to develop our own style.
Instagram fashion bloggers share with us the playful side of fashion, from extreme looks to more smart combinations that are guiding us towards everyday style.
