I realize most people absolutely love summer — and don't get me wrong, there are plenty of things I love about it, too — but fall is easily my favorite season, especially as a New Yorker. So I'm more than ready to start stocking my wardrobe full of cozy knits and plush sweaters.
First up on my wish list? This waffle half-zip from Donni. At first glance, it appears to be a somewhat basic pullover (albeit a very cute one). But what elevates it to covet-worthy status is the hardware: a gold zipper adorned with a freshwater baroque pearl as the pull. The Los Angeles-based cool-kid accessories brand is known for incorporating jewelry-inspired elements into clothing, and while I love many of its pieces, this is definitely a standout for me. Bring on sweater weather.
Donni Waffle 1/2 Zip, $234, available here.
