Sweaters are always wardrobe essentials for the Fall. Not only does it keep you warm during colder months, but it’s also perfectly suitable for cool summer months. To prepare you for the inevitable colder weather to come, the sweater has gotten a very chic makeover. But how do we take this trend from the runway to real life? We’ve outlined the top fall fashion sweater trends you’ll want to be sporting come the new season.
The poncho may not be the first thing that comes to mind when thinking of chic Fall attire, but the style was all over the runways for 2014. However, designers gave the poncho a new spin by constructing the piece in neutral shades and a more voluminous silhouette, making it both functional and incredibly easy to pair with an autumnal wardrobe. For a streamlined take on the trend, check out this piece by Raffi, a chic wintery white cable style. Pair with printed trousers or skinny jeans for an especially show stopping effect.
The Sweater Dress
The sweater dress is no longer simply a preppy, country club staple. Fashion Week’s iterations of the sweater dress were altogether more relaxed, with geometric patterns and a modern, slouchy silhouette giving new life to the style. To take on the trend, pick a dress with a slightly relaxed fit and a muted palette of colors. Try this mod Diane Von Fursetnberg sweater shift. Pair with opaque tights and boots to upgrade your autumn!
The Sweater Coat
If you like cardigans, then you’ll like sweater coats! Make your workday topper do double-duty by choosing a sweater heavy enough to be outerwear.
Subtle Color Blocking
Play up your assets with geometric color blocking! This pattern is eye-catching, unique, and the high-low hemline is on-trend and edgy. Throw this sweater over any blouse or tee, or wear it alone over pants or a solid skirt for an easy daytime outfit.
The Slouchy Sweater
October is the perfect time to pick up a new slouchy sweater. These are the sweaters you can curl up into while sipping hot cocoa in front of the fire. They’re loose, cozy, and, most importantly for our frigid winters, keep us warm! Mostly for evenings and weekends, these perfect knits are divinely casual and classic. Just because we want to be comfortable doesn’t mean we need to forfeit style!
So this Fall when stocking up on cozy sweaters and new boots, be sure to fill your wardrobe with rich chic fabrics and fun styles! Whether you’re a minimalist or someone looking to make a bold statement, we can bet you’ll find a style (or two, or three) to love this autumn.
Happy Fall…Happy Shopping…Always Intrigue-ing!
