Sweater Trends For Fall


Take a look at my top sweater trends for fall.

I love fall – when you can wear your favorite sweaters and feel all warm and cozy.

There is something about Autumn and how we dress that makes this season feel like the start of something new.

Staple Outfits – Fall Fashion Trends

When you walk, you notice the changing colors of the leaves around you, the sun is getting weaker and the rain is coming more often.

The crisp mornings are making me reach for my sweaters, wanting to feel wrapped up on the way to work.

Trends come and go but some of the same pieces you will see time and time again, like leather trousers, a blazer, a simple tee, crewneck sweaters, wool coats, v-neck sweaters, denim, and puff sleeves.

September accessories can include a pop of color, items derived from the runway, and of course designer handbags (such as Dior, Saint Laurent, Prada, Valentino, Loewe, and Gucci).

Wear Those Oversized Sweaters

Oversized sweaters never seem to go out of style, worn with skinny jeans, boots, and a scarf, they keep you warm and stylish.

Going for a coffee, hot chocolate, or tea, you can still sit outside and enjoy the weather, making the most of it, before it becomes too cold to enjoy it.

Wearing layers and making the most of your wardrobe is a great way to show off your knitwear.

When I was growing up I remember how much I loved to wear classic sweaters, my mum used to knit me quite a few, and now the bigger and sloppier the better!

Oversized Sweaters

Oversized knit sweaters – the bigger and baggier the better!

When you feel cozy and comfy but still look sophisticated in a boho-chic way, then this is the perfect look for you!

You can pair this with anything, leggings, skinny jeans, or even mini skirts!

Metallic Sweaters

Metallic sweaters and jackets can go from day to night when you are at work, taking you from the office to cocktails with ease.

They look so good yet have a certain relaxed effortlessness to them – like you just threw it on and turned up looking fabulous!

Turtleneck Sweaters

Turtleneck sweaters are all over the shops at the minute, with big side splits (I’m wearing a vest underneath mine for sure – no cold sides for me!)

From loose to skin-tight, they are all in fashion.

Chunky Knit Sweaters

Sweaters knit with chunky yarn are so good!

When you are freezing or having a fat day this is the perfect cover-up.

You can wear them over jeans or leggings, with chunky boots. I love a chunky knit!

Cable Knit Sweaters

Cable knits are normally quite chunky too, which means they are so warm!

There is a wintery kind of Christmassy vibe to a cable knit, offering a Nordic style in white or grey.

I have a white cable knit cardigan and it does go with everything!

Pastel Sweaters

Pastel knits with muted colors and dainty ice cream hues are also around again this year, offering a bit of class and sophistication.

I see them as being workwear, seen in an office near you!

Color Block Sweaters

Color block knits are around this year with monochromatic offerings from Zara and ASOS.

I love the sweater from Zara and think that this could be a winner for work, worn over black leggings and boots.

Fuzzy Sweaters

Eyelash yarn sweaters…okay so why are they still here?

I had one in 1998 and it was awful.

Made totally from black eyelash yarn, it was a cropped sweater with a hood and it was stretchy.

I have memories of that sweater making me feel a bit chunky and cold around the midriff!

So I’m not reliving that trend for anyone!

  1. Hi, I was reading (from 27th September 2019) and I saw a jumper/sweater image of a cream coloured, cowl neck sweater with an asymmetrical hem and stitch detail in the back and sleeve and I wondered if you had a pattern for this or knew where I could access one? (Blonde woman, messy bun, blue jeans, cream/white jumper)
    Many thanks

    1. Hello Amanda,
      That image was a stock image and I don’t have a pattern or link to a pattern for that sweater.
