Sweater Styling With California FP Me Beach Babe, FPCasi

Sweaters can be tricky to transition from summer into fall, especially if you live in a warm-weather climate. Here’s how one of our favorite FP Me gals is wearing her sweaters now!

This post comes from Free People Santa Barbara Store Manager and LA Social Media Manager, Casi. Always fantastically styled, Casi radiates California cool, and I couldn’t wait to hear how she transitions her wardrobe into fall. Read on for her warm weather sweater styling tips!

Still salty with warm ocean water, the smell of the bonfire smoke clings to your hair.  Mild yet glowing nights spent in the sand, as the sun slips below the horizon, are my absolute favorites. Fall on the coast has officially begun.


Get the look: Easy Tea V-Neck Sweater, Melia Striped Briefs

A pullover sweater is always my go-to — from day to night, a fine-gauge pullover is perfect, something soft and easy. The Easy Tea Sweater is spot on and I love that this one is the same color as sea glass. Pair it with your favorite shorts or toss it on over a pair of skinnies and boots when you’re off the sand.


Get the look: Easy Cable V-Neck Pullover

As that salty ocean breeze grows chillier with night, it might be time to pull out that heavier cable-knit sweater. My favorite is the Easy Cable V. It reminds me of one of my most-loved blankets from when I was young and makes me want to cozy up to a bonfire.



Get the look: Shark Hem Cotton Cardi, Denim Petal Brief, Wrap Top, Twiggy Round Sunglass

Left: This Cotton Wrap Cardi is always hanging out in the back seat of my car or my leather tote bag. This sweater can be tossed over anything, or let one shoulder fall off and pair it with shorts or a summer dress! (If you’re already feeling fall, pair this guy with our sweater leggings and a soft cotton tee — it’s the perfect match.)

Right: No California day is complete without a pair of sunnies and your best black bikini. This top is one of my favorites – it’s classic with a twist (or quite literally a wrap)…and doubles up well as a bralette! Top it all off with a pair of round sunnies and you’ll feel like a ’60s beach babe. (Don’t forget to pack your sweater, though.)
