Yellow and Pink Knits for 'Autumn at the Beach'


Dreading the prospect of sloshing around in slush and bleak winter mornings? How about the comfort and warmth of a sweater in decidedly non-wintry colors: Bright yellows and sugary pinks. Anything, anything to help you wake up when it's depressingly dark out, right?

Mariska van der Zee dons a sunny yellow Paul & Joe knit, a Sonia Rykiel over-sized pink jumper (with an equally over-sized shawl collar), and a short sleeve, pale yellow, angora Manoush sweater, in "Autumn at the Beach," from Grazia France (see the rest of the photos, here). Autumn's the best. The weather's still nice (hence, the beach), and the changing foliage, Halloween, pumpkin pie, ...that nice cool breeze reminding you that those leaves will eventually fall from trees bared to snow. Snow that will turn into the aforementioned grey slush and salt slurry. (Who spent her college years walking to class in a 'snow-belt'? This lady, right here!)

Manoush, Doudou Short-sleeved Jumper in pale yellow, or baby blue. 248 (~$320)
Sonia Rykiel, Oversize Jumper in pink. €850 (~$1,100)
