It’s that time of year: sweater time. No outfit or closet is complete without a handful of fashionable fall knits. Why are sweaters essential for this season? They’re comfortable and warm, and can be worn on chilly days or layered when the weather gets colder. A good sweater made of quality cotton, wool or cashmere not only keeps you warm but also well-dressed for any occasion. Whether it’s pumpkin picking or Thanksgiving dinner, your sweater-game will always be on point.
Here’s a list of some of the best sweaters to add to your collection this fall.
Everlane has been winning the hearts of MAillennials with its ethical approach to sourcing materials and manufacturing. In addition to looking great in the Everlane Cashmere sweater, you’ll also feel great knowing that you’re supporting a socially conscious company. The Cashmere Crew is a minimalistic and refined sweater that looks polished either by itself or paired with a light jacket. The sweater is made from high-quality, thick cashmere, yet is priced at just $100.
Turtlenecks have been the favorites of many Hollywood celebrities and tech CEOs, including, of course, Steve Jobs. There’s a good reason why they tend to be the go-to sweater for busy people. Turtlenecks, like this simple black one from Topman, are easy to wear, easy to pair and easy to care for. They’ll work with just about any outfit you can think of and can even be layered with a vest or blazer. Turtlenecks are just as popular today as they were back in the ’70s, making them a safe bet for your closet.
The Williams cashmere sweater is a great value, given that it’s a 100% cashmere with over 33 colors for you to choose from. The crew-neck has ribbed cuffs and a hem combined with the slim-fit profile gives the sweater a fantastic fit on most body types. The cashmere is also on the lighter side, making this sweater highly breathable and comfortable when layering. Given the low price, you can easily load up on three to four of these sweaters and be set for both the fall and winter.
Don’t want to settle for light cashmere? Then open up your wallet to the Geometric Fendi Logo sweater. Made from Italian virgin wool, it’s a league above cashmere in terms of softness and quality. An allover Fendi logo pattern gives this sweater a subtle eccentric charm. Fendi’s sense of style definitely isn’t for everyone but for those who can pull it off and doesn’t mind the attention it will draw, it’s a great statement sweater to add to your collection.
Buck Mason is known for the craftsmanship and versatility of their clothing. They sweaters are designed with comfort in mind and meant to be worn on a daily basis. The Buck Mason Cotton Traveler sweater is made from lightweight cotton and features ribbed cuffs, hem and neck. Each sweater undergoes a special boiling water treatment to make it more durable and resistant to pilling. At $125, the Buck Mason sweater is a good purchase and one that will last.
The Bonobos Cotton Cashmere sweater is a rare hybrid between fashion and practicality. Cable-knit sweaters look great, but they’re often bulky and can’t be layered very well. Bonobos changed the game when they introduced this sweater. It features cable-knit design without the bulk and comes in four autumnal colors. It’s 95% cotton and 5% cashmere, giving you the softness of cashmere and the easy care of cotton.
