As we are about to hit October, there is a truth that we can no longer ignore: fall is officially here. Technically it started on the 21st of September, but now we are really in the full swing of things. As such, it is time to update the fall weather wardrobes and import some new sweaters into the rotation. Sweaters are essential to the fall outfit formula for a reason: they’re cozy, work as layering pieces for those days where the temperature fluctuates wildly from morning to afternoon to night, and they look pretty cool when styled right.
So what are you waiting for? Keep scrolling to discover 7 new sweaters to consider adding to cart this season:
The oversize plaid check on this Simon Miller sweater is too fun not to highlight. It adds a sense of playfulness to the typical plaids and prep school-inspired style that comes every fall, and it works as a standalone statement piece or when paired with the ankle-length skirt in matching print.
Even if you tend towards neutral colors, I suggest having at least one bright sweater in your wardrobe. They are great mood boosters on dreary days, and they are an easy way to add a special pop to an otherwise basic fall or winter ensemble. This fuschia mock neck sweater from Quince is a great colorful sweater option.
A classic Fairisle knit sweater gets distorted and modernized with this colorful knit sweater from NIA The Brand. With a cropped fit, this sweater will look stylish at the apres ski party as the “Aspen” monicker implies, but it will also look amazing with a pair of relax-fit jeans city-side.
Do cardigans count as sweaters? I say yes, especially when talking about this cozy knit cardigan from fitness and athleisure brand Thrive Société. It is warm enough to serve as a layering piece on brisk mornings at the house or to and from workouts, and I like that it’s longer and features pockets as well.
This looks like something Hailey Beiber would surely rock, perhaps with a pair of low-rise cargo pants or an ultra-mini skirt. Get bold and use a cropped sweater to showcase your abs, or wear this as a layering piece over a favorite dress. The cream is such a beautiful hue, too, that will match so many things.
I absolutely adore the designs from Propaganda Agency, a sustainable knitwear brand inspired by 70s and 80s style. With each piece crafted in Peru using non-allergenic alpaca yarn and pima cotton, these knit pieces are luxurious and soft. I am a big fan of this scenic sweater in particular, which serves as a great statement piece in colors that are ideal for fall. While Propaganda Agency is geared towards menswear, I say anyone can appreciate this chic knit.
Get the Scandinavian girl style as we head into the colder months with a turquoise oversize turtleneck sweater. In addition to a thick turtleneck, this sweater features fun balloon sleeves that add great volume to the piece.
