We’ve hit sweater weather people! I have officially worn a sweater and now I am on the hunt for the perfect cozy pieces to fit into my wardrobe. I roamed the internet and searched every corner of the virtual sales floor to find the sweaters that will keep you warm, cozy and chic this fall.
Pop of Color
This is a season of color, and this includes your knitwear! Whether you love that bold true red or a more subdued green, you need to get away from neutrals and pop your fall look with some color.
I was a big fan of the slogan tee this past summer, as was the rest of the fashion world. As we move into fall I have been seeing more and more slogan sweaters. These are a fun way to add some personality to your look.
This is a big trend this season and I totally understand why. Who doesn’t want to wear what’s basically a blanket around and call it a sweater? If my whole body could be covered in sweater-like materials I would be okay with that—the bigger and baggier the better in my book. I love wearing oversized sweaters with a slinky skirt or a pair of skin tight faux-leather pants.
These embellished sweaters add a little sparkle to your look. Pearls, rhinestones, and metallic thread are just a few of the ways your sweaters can be embellished. Embroidery is also alive and well! It’s easy to find an embellishment that add that little something extra to your outfit while staying true to your personal style.
You need at least one fine knit sweater in your life for layering up. If you’ve got a strappy dress you love but it’s under 70 degrees, just layer a thin turtleneck underneath. Want to wear your favorite midi skirt? Throw on a thin V-neck sweater for a soft fall transitional look.
Fuzzy sweaters lend a bit more texture to your outfits, so mixing them with other textures is something you can do that can’t necessarily be done with other sweaters. These textured yarns also tend to be even warmer than your average acrylic sweaters.
Who doesn’t want a sweater down to their knees (or longer)? Didn’t I mention earlier how I want my entire body to be in a blanket-like burrito all day?! Enough said.
If oversized isn’t enough for you, finding an extremely thick sweater will fulfill all your needs. The thicker the yarn, the warmer the sweater (unless were talking cashmere, which is pretty darn warm even in a thinner knit). I think a sweater always looks cool under a coat or on its own with a pair of skinny jeans. That look portrays an effortless, cozy, chicness that we all want.
