As the summer sun gets farther away and the crisp fall air moves in, cozy sweaters are at the top of our wish list. This season’s sweaters come in all shapes, sizes, and textures. Mixed with luxe leather and a go-to pair of jeans or tossed over a wispy dress, a comfortable sweater is a must-have for cool-weather layering. Check out the 13 fall sweaters we’re lusting over.
Chunky Cable Knit
Cable-knit sweaters are a classic, but this season they’re getting an update with oversize silhouettes and chunkier details. Balance the heaviness of the sweater with fitted bottoms, like Ashley of Ring My Bell’s skinnies-and-heels combo. Half- or side-tuck to show off a bit more shape.
Sartorial muse and Fashion Toast blogger Rumi Neely is known for her effortlessly luxe style, as demonstrated with this oversized sweater look. The New York Fashion Week Fall 2014 runways were littered with fantastically large sweaters layered over silky, dainty slips. Tip: Keep the sweater simple in muted colors for the most mileage and best effect.
Cropped sweaters first hit the streets last fall, and we’re still riding the trend this season. Team yours with high-waist pants or skirts to keep covered, as Danielle of We Wore What did. Hint: We love the turtleneck and extra-long sleeves details to keep the top looking balanced rather than shrunk.
Billowing Waffle-Knit Sweater
A waffle knit is a great way to add texture to a sweater. Wendy Nguyen, blogger behind Wendy’s Lookbook, rocked a plush and slightly oversized waffle-knit sweater in a soft hue. We love the wide turtleneck on the sweater, which is totally a trend worth trying this season.
