Two words sum up this season’s preferred way of dressing: cozy and comfortable. Sweaters are more than obliging, with trendy cropped versions to knee-grazing cardigans to sweeping dusters. Sweaters this fall go beyond basics; they’re statement-making pieces that can refresh just about everything in the closet.

Soft, luxurious fabrics not only feel good, they add a touch of indulgence. Statement details such as bows, ruffles, oversized turtlenecks, faux wraps and puffy sleeves elevate interest. Texture has never been more important, and it comes from chunky cable knits, fringe and pom poms. Colors range from vibrant hot pink and soft blush to all shades of blue and green. Tartan plaids, stripes and color blocking are back in a big way, and so are sweater vests – as well as modern takes on what is sometimes referred to as a “grandpa cardigan.”


A sweater can dress up jeans, joggers or that favorite pair of black pants that come out of the closet weekly. Wear a sweater vest under a blazer, or layered over a button-down shirt. How about a striped, fuzzy oversized sweater with leather pants or a slim skirt? Don’t hesitate to add one or two of these new, stylish options to your collection.

Sweaters seem especially suitable for what’s happening in today’s world, too. As many continue to work from home with regular Zoom meetings, sweaters are an appropriate waist-up, stylish business look. What’s more, they’re easy – another preferred way of dressing these days. Just what we need. Cozy.
