It’s Sweater Season

There is a magical season that lies between the last sun-soaked day of the summer and the first chill of winter. The season, known as autumn, also goes by another colloquial name – sweater weather season. Forget pumpkins and spiced lattes, sweaters are the fashion symbol of the fall. This period is full of fresh, brisk air, and wonderful warm shades of oranges, reds, browns, and yellows.  There is no debate that sweaters are made for this season because they help you stay warm, comfortable, and stylish when it matters the most. They are convenient and versatile, as they go with almost any outfit. If you aren’t already a believer in the sweater, this article is sure to change your mindset. While we are in the sweater season, here are tips and options for sweaters that will have any outfit feeling comfy and cozy, but still looking chic.

Off-the-shoulder Sweaters

Off-the-shoulder sweaters are the trend for the season. These sweaters have a chic look that can go great in the fall but can quite honestly be worn in practically any season. Off the shoulder sweaters are an option for women. There are two main options for necklines. The first is off the shoulder, which shows a bit of skin from the shoulder, usually just on one side. Then, there is a cold shoulder neckline which shows both shoulders.  They both go well with jeans or even a long skirt. You can get them fitted or oversized, depending on the look you are going for this season. This sweater is chic, but still warm enough to get you through the season.

Lace-up or Self-tie Sweaters

Self-tie designs are usually reserved for the spring and summer, but not anymore. Many fall collections feature a lace-up element because they elevate the average sweater to be fashionable and eye-catching. Oversized sweaters go well with leggings or ankle boots. You can also layer on top of a slip dress or jeans.

Lace-up sweaters aren’t reserved for women. There are plenty of options for men as well. Most go perfect with a clean pair of dark jeans. If you are wearing one of these sweaters this season, brace yourself for a barrage of compliments.

Turtleneck

If showing skin isn’t for you, then go with the opposite of the off-the-shoulder, sweater – turtlenecks. These sweaters are classic for the season. They go well with a sports coat or a blazer and can be worn by both men and women.

Cardigans

Nobody will argue against the fact that everyone, man or woman, looks good in a cardigan. A plush and well-knit cardigan can go a long way during the fall months. Cardigans come in all shapes and sizes. They can have a fitted look, but they also look great oversized. Cardigans are the go-to for that simple yet put-together look. Especially if you are trying to get out the door quickly for work or even a social gathering.
