These Fall Sweaters Are Part Shawl, Part Cardigan And Totally Awesome (PHOTOS)

My best friend and I call our hybrid knits that we wear so often "Mr.Rogers." Named after the beloved TV character who often wore a cardigan, they are part cardigan and part shawl. These sweaters are ideal for both cool fall temperatures and frigid office climes. The cozy knitwear adds a casual element to your skinny jeans, leather pants or even a LBD. But it's the drapey, shawl-like bit that sets us apart from the rest of the cardigan-wearing crowd.

A little Rick Owens, a little Helmut Lang in their inspiration, these sweaters are known for their draped collars that are almost architectural in design. Pairing the sweaters with structured bottoms and high heels gives your outfit a touch of softness, and under a jacket or blazer you're that much warmer that your icicle-nosed colleagues.

Here, seven cardigans guaranteed to keep you warm this winter.
