Cozy and Sustainable Sweaters for Fall

I know it’s not technically fall yet but it’s so hard not to be excited for it. We’ve had such incredible weather up here in Vermont and the leaves are already starting to change (which is also because it was such a dry summer). Fall fashion is my favorite and sweaters are a big part of that. There’s just something so nice about throwing on a cozy sweater whether it’s with jeans, trousers or over a dress. Whether you prefer cotton, cashmere, wool, or something with recycled materials, I’ve rounded up some great cozy and sustainable sweaters made with sustainable materials for fall. Who else is excited for sweater weather?!

Cozy and Sustainable Sweaters for Fall

ABLE Marin Sweater

This 100% GOTS certified organic cotton sweater from my ABLE collection is as cozy as it is soft. Styled above with the Pepper midi slip dress, it’s a mock neck shaker stitch knit pullover with half button placket collar, faux-horn buttons, and side slits. The length is perfect for tucking in or leaving out. In a nautical stripe or minimalist neutral, you can’t go wrong with either style. Stay tuned for restock details of the stripe! Use code JAK15 for 15% off your ABLE purchase.

Sézane Leontin Jumper

If you live in a warm climate but want to get in on sweater weather the Sézane Leontin sweater is a great option. It’s made with 100% organic cotton with balloon sleeves and a button placket. This one runs slightly cropped so I sized up to a medium. It’s not too heavy so ideal for those warmer days. You can see it styled here.

Amour Vert Organic Cotton Sweater

This mock neck drop shoulder sweater comes in a gorgeous golden yellow hue with cable stitching and mini pom details. Amour Vert uses only certified organic cotton and their sweaters are ethically and sustainably made.

Faherty Mikki Polo

This certified organic cotton cashmere blend polo is the perfect blend of preppy and chic for fall. It’s a fitted ribbed knit with a polo neckline and faux horn buttons. It comes in a navy, stripe or burnt red. A great style to wear with jeans or trousers that looks great tucked in.

ABLE Harriet Slouchy Sweater

The Harriet sweater is so soft you’ll think it’s cashmere. Made from a recycled polyester blend it’s machine washable and super cozy. Super light and a little bit of stretch it’s a sweater you won’t want to take off.

Sézane Betty Cardigan

The Betty Cardigan is one of my favorites from Sézane. It’s 100% merino wool (I don’t find it itchy) with chic buttons, chest pockets and a collar. Choose from navy, red or white, and wear it as a jacket or cardigan. I sized up for a slightly oversized fit.

Boden Raglan Sleeve Fluffy Sweater

I love the raglan sleeve on this fluffy sweater from Boden. Cozy up in this wool/alpaca/poly blend sweater from Boden, the charcoal is gorgeous and so versatile. Starting this autumn, 95% of Boden’s womenswear is polyester free or made with recycled polyester.

Christy Dawn the Esther Sweater

The 100% baby alpaca sweater from Christy Dawn is what chunky knit sweater dreams are made of. It has hand embroidered details, ribbing at the waist and sleeves and a chunky foldover neckline. This sweater fits true to size so size up for an oversized fit.

Eileen Fisher Cashmere Silk Turtleneck Top

I got this cashmere/silk blend sweater last year and I lived in it. Definitely an investment knit but one that you will have for years to come. It’s so luxuriously soft with a slightly boxy fit and rubbed trim at the sleeves, hem and neck. Incredibly warm and cozy you will not want to take this one off.

Cozy Sweater Outfit Ideas

One of my favorite ways to style cozy sweaters is paired with denim like a straight leg jean and booties. So simple and minimal effort but cozy and chic. For something that’s work appropriate, try a trouser and flats (my favorite loafers) with a sweater under a blazer or jacket. I also love to layer a big cozy sweater over a dress (this midi slip dress is perfect for layering). Here are some additional outfit ideas for cozy sweaters this fall.

Keep it monochrome.

Pair your cozy sweater with similar hues like the tan knit below with white pants and and tan clogs or this green knit with dark green wide leg pants and sneakers.

With jeans.

There’s so many ways to wear a cozy sweater with jeans but a few of my favorites are either tucked in with a straight leg and booties. I also love something oversized left loose over skinny jeans or a half tuck with black denim and flats.

Over a dress

I love a sweater over a dress for fall. Whether it’s more of a cardigan style like the Betty cardigan from Sezane or a chunkier knit over a slip dress you can’t go wrong.

    Fingers crossed for a Marin striped restock! I was able to snag the mushroom and now know my size. I ended up sadly, having to return the stripes because it was too oversized for my shorter frame…
