Maybe it’s just my imagination, but I feel like the minute that fall weather comes back around in New York City, Blake Lively and Taylor Swift turn on, getting photographed together all the time in effortless autumnal looks that I always want to copy for the entirety of the season. And this year is hardly an exception. In the last few weeks, we’ve seen tons of the two best friends, and just as they always do, both have been showing up in outfits worthy of pressing Control + C on.
Their latest sighting came when the duo was photographed leaving Bradley Cooper’s apartment on Thursday, with Lively and Swift going their separate ways afterward. It was at that moment of separation that I noticed just how good the Gossip Girl actress’s chunky cardigan was—and just how much I needed one for my own wardrobe. Specifically, she wore an oat-colored, shawl-neck cardigan sweater with a matching tee, baggy jeans, UGG slippers from the brand’s collaboration with Opening Ceremony, and a denim Chanel flap bag.
Though I’ve unfortunately been unable to ID her exact knit—I get the feeling that it was stolen from Ryan Reynolds’s side of the closet—I did find a $140 Banana Republic alt that’ll more than get the job done. Shop it and more fall cardigans below.
