Nothing screams autumn quite like throwing on a cute fall sweater and hitting a harvest festival or cuddling up on the couch with a plush blanket and a spiced apple rum punch to watch a scary Halloween movie. (There’s a reason they call it “sweater weather,” after all.)
With so many sweaters to choose from, here are a few things to keep in mind. When it comes to oversized knits, the key to successful styling is proportion play. Relaxed fit sweaters work best when paired with snugger-fitting bottoms, like slim-fit jeans or leggings. Chunky turtlenecks can’t be beat for warmth. Wrap-fronts and longer tunic styles are flattering and easy-to-wear, while cardigans are always favored for ease and versatility. And as for fall 2021 trends, tight ribbed knits and polo-style designs are standouts to keep an eye out for.
Can’t wait to slip on what’s sure to be the comfiest sweater you’ve ever owned? Whether you’re looking for a trendy, cheap knit to wear with your ankle boots, or a pretty pullover to layer under your moto jacket or light coat, you’re bound to find something just right for your favorite autumnal activity.
