The autumn weather is also known as sweater weather, a time to wear sweaters all season long! Sweaters of all shapes, colors, textures, and makes practically take over our fall wardrobe. It’s the reason why our closets are stuffed to the brim—because sweaters are so easy to style! Tossed over a light blouse, stacked over a chambray top, tucked into a skater skirt, or worn cropped with a pair of your favorite high-waisted pants—the amount of outfit creations you can style with a sweater are simply endless. There is no going wrong with a sweater!

We’ve seen a variety of sweater trends over the past fall seasons: cropped, Cosby-inspired, fuzzy, striped, and more. This fall’s latest addition comes in a bigger and better form—one we are going to cuddle up into this whole season. Oversized sweaters have been seen on the runway in collections from The Row, Prada, Milly, and Marc Jacobs. Paired with trench coats, knee high boots, menswear-inspired neckties, or feminine belts, these oversized tops perfectly work for everyday, fashionable wear.

From Barney’s and Net-A-Porter to Neiman Marcus and ShopBop, splurging on one or two oversized designer sweaters is definitely a fashionable investment. For more wallet-friendly sweaters, check out some of our favorite stores: J. Crew, Uniqlo, Express, and Zara. When shopping for sweaters like these, look for good quality at a great price, especially if you want it to last the whole season.
