Neutral Territory Coldwater Creek

Sure, many parts of the country are still pretty warm, but fall WILL arrive. Frosty air, falling leaves, and that early morning chill.


…you’ll need a coat!


This year, our fall outerwear collection is brimming with great neutral pieces: sweaters and cardis, vests and jackets, coats, parkas and trenches.


From creamy off-whites to deepest charcoal and all the mochas that come between, the warm colors complement everything in nature’s palette, from earth tones to saturated jeweled hues.


Look for on-trend details like faux fur collars and linings, blanket patterns, bold graphics, and fun features like belts, toggles, and quilting.


Perfect pieces to bridge the last leaf and the first snow, these stylish sweaters and jackets may be neutral, but they’ll make sure you never disappear into the background.

On Trend: Faux Fur


If you’re zeroing in on the fur trend, you’re definitely getting warmer. The fur is faux, sure! But the fashion stir is all real.


As a statement or an accent, it’s everywhere this year. The runway at New York’s Fall Fashion Week saw fur trim on hats, boots, clutches, and especially collars.


We’ve taken this irresistible idea and applied it to a whole collection of fabulous and functional neutral-toned pieces. Our fanciful assortment of sweaters, jackets, coats and vests take fall’s wear-with-everything palette to a whole new level.


The stars of the show: a cozy knit poncho trimmed with a long swath of faux sable, a marled sweater with detachable faux fox collar, and a wool blend coat with faux fur to button on or off.


Each piece is proof – the new neutrals are anything but ordinary.

Mix and Match Cardigans


How do you wear YOUR cardigan?


For us, it’s all about mixing and matching sets, layering colors and patterns, and changing it up every which way. Buttoned, belted, open, tied. So many ways to wear cardis!


Mix It

For a fresh take, try color blocking. Bright swaths of different colors add charisma and fun to your wardrobe, and it’s even more fun when you know you can’t go wrong. Swap out any of the shells from our matching cardigan sets with another one in a different color. Choose subdued tones for a subtle look, or bright hues to create a bold fashion statement. Either way, it’s a modern, on-trend outfit that will take you anywhere.


Solids are great, but prints are even more fun. Mix up your cardigan style with a patterned shirt. Notice how our Perfect Shirts ™ and embellished tees go great with all our cardis? That’s no accident! The whole fall spectrum was chosen with mixing and matching in mind. With the right accessories, this look can dress up for a touch of weekday refinement, or dress down for a relaxing weekend.


Match It

Our EveryWear™, Merino Mix, and Silk*Cotton cardigans are available with coordinating shells. Of course these go perfectly with each other, but the tops can also be paired with different cardis without fear – all our fall colors are consistent across the entire collection. Plus, so many of our other tops and tanks complement the cardigans, offering you a color-on-color layered look. Perfect for when you want a little polish and sophistication. It’s a timeless look we love, and always flawless to fall back on.


Layer It

Don’t stop with a cardi and top! Add some layered jewelry or a vibrant scarf. Try belting your cardigan. Button it up, wear it open, tie the hem in a flirty knot.


Have fun with our fabulous fall cardis – you’ll look fantastic, no matter how you wear them!

Four Fabulous Fall Cardigans


What makes a cardigan stand out? Attention to detail, sumptuous knits, and of-the-moment colors, to name a few. This group of cardis has all that and more!


We call them Fall’s Fabulous Four, but you’ll call them your newest favorites.


Four cardis so perfect, you can’t possibly choose just one. The Silk*Cotton, Merino Mix, Dream Cardigan, and EveryWear™ Cardigan. Each one with its own unique charm, in a kaleidoscope of color.


When the forecast calls for a cardi with real elegance, Silk*Cotton is just the thing. Delicate pleats shape the neckline and a velvet ribbon embellishes the button placket. Truly a three-season piece, it tops off everything from crops to jeans to dresses in a lightweight, silky-fine fabric.


Our new Merino Mix Cardigan is a fashion statement you’ll want to make now and in seasons to come. The crescent-cutaway hem adds a little flair, and the luxe blend of Merino and acrylic is soft but so forgiving.


The Dream Cardigan earns its name. It drapes beautifully, with an oh-so-feminine sweep along the hem for a touch of dramatic movement. Sweater weather just got a lot more sophisticated!


The EveryWear™ Cardigan is just that – amazingly versatile and endlessly wearable. Go anywhere, do anything in easy-wear, easy-care fabric. A gently scooped neckline and button front make it an everyday wardrobe staple you’ll turn to time and time again.


The best part? All our cardis and matching shells not only go great in sets, they mix perfectly with our entire vivid fall spectrum, so pick a color to match every mood!

How to wear fall’s great colors?

Try turquoise or burgundy jeans with a sequined tank. Throw on a matching cardigan and look totally put-together.

If you’re feeling bold, pull a color from a bright top like we did with the pinks and violets of our soft spots shell, pairing it with midnight purple jeans.

For a fantastic twist on black & white, pair the graphic dot print blouse with denim in a vivid color. We especially love it with rich terracotta.
