Hello fall! It’s peak foliage here, the weather is already much cooler (30s this morning) and it is officially sweater weather. I finally found time to do my wardrobe clean out last week and give my sweater rotation an update. I have some incredible styles I’ve had for years and some new knits I’m adding to my closet. One of my favorite things about living in the Northeast is all the opportunities to wear comfy sweaters during fall and winter. Sweater vests, cable knits, cashmere cardigans, oversized chunky sweaters, organic cotton, sweater polos and more. I’ve got you covered in today’s post with a roundup of sweaters to keep you comfortable and cozy all season long.

Preppy meets chic in this cashmere collar knit from Boden. The scallop detail neckline adds a feminine touch and the navy is a classic color for any wardrobe. It doesn’t get cozier than cashmere. It also comes in a gorgeous pink.

Amour Vert

A pullover sweater in organic cotton, this ethically and sustainably made sweater comes in black and white stripe or ivory and navy. Ribbed detailing throughout and a great option if you want to embrace sweater weather but it’s not too chilly where you live.

Sézane Léontin sweater

One of my all time favorites from Sézane this organic cotton sweater with button placket and stripe detail is an instant classic. A thicker knit with a slightly cropped fit it’s great to tuck into pants. It does run big but I sized up for a slightly longer fit.

Reformation ribbed cashmere collar sweater

This ribbed button down cashmere sweater reminds me of one of my favorite sweaters from several years ago. It’s great for layering, so soft and looks incredibly chic. Wear it unbuttoned over a slip dress or layer it under a light jacket or blazer.

ABLE Claudette fisherman sweater

Look no further than this ethical and sustainable cable knit fisherman sweater from ABLE for a gorgeous deep brown knit this fall.

Sweater Outfits For Fall

If you’re in need of some sweater outfit ideas I’ve got you covered. Whether you need some office outfit inspiration, weekend wear or maybe even a fall wedding, here are some ways to wear sweaters this fall for any occasion.

cardigan with maxi dress

I love how chic a maxi dress is with a cardigan for fall. Such an easy yet elevated look with a flowy dress and cozy cardigan to keep you warm. I plan on wearing some version of this for my brother’s wedding in San Francisco this month!

chunky sweater with jeans

One of my favorite casual outfits is a chunky sweater with jeans. Wear it with booties, sneakers or flats and accessorize with a big sweater to stay extra cozy.

sweater vest with blouse

Stay warm with a sweater vest over a blouse this fall. Style it with straight leg pants and clogs for a preppy but modern look. For chilly days add a blazer or jacket on top.

chunky cardigan with camisole

A delicate camisole looks so chic layered under a chunky cardigan. Pair with jeans and booties for date night. Use code JAK15 for 15% off the ABLE camisole.

oversized sweater with slip dress

Take your slip dress into fall and winter by layering it under an oversized sweater. Pair it with heels or booties and add a belt or leave it loose for a relaxed feel. You could also try a cropped sweater for something more tailored. Use code JAK15 for 15% off the Pepper slip dress.

chunky knit with slim leg pants and camel coat

Pair a chunky rib knit with a cigarette pant like this style from Sézane (picture below). Add loafers for a chic and comfortable fall outfit and for chilly days layer on a wool camel coat.

cable knit sweater and blazer

Pair a cable knit crewneck with a menswear inspired blazer for a stylish and preppy look for fall. Add jeans or trousers with booties and a crossbody bag. A great travel outfit for fall!
