Falling back comes with a chilly price: winter is almost here. But if there’s one thing we love about getting the chills, it’s warming up in cozy knits.
This year, we’ll be doing it in the new knitwear line Augden. The New York-based company is hush-hush about who’s behind the designs (a little bird told us it’s a former knitwear designer for a major women’s label), but they do divulge the line is masterminded in the Big Apple and hand-knit by artisans in the Andes. Made from sustainable and soft natural yarns native to the mountain range, the oversized cardigan ($610, pictured) is the epitome of cozy-cool while the shrunken crewneck will go perfectly with a high-waisted, mid-calf skirt.
