We don’t usually have very cold fall or winter seasons down south, so trendy sweaters are always a staple in our closets. They’re also great for this time of year because they make great transitional items.
You can layer on a thin cardigan now and transition to heavier, chunky-knit sweaters closet to winter. Here are 3 sweater trends for fall 2020 you’ll be seeing around town (or the gram.)
Sweater Trends – Chunky Knit with Balloon Sleeves
The coziest of the sweater trends, chunky sweaters are a great item to have in your closet. They pair well with another fall staple, leggings. I love to wear them at night when the weather gets a bit cooler and they’re great for just lounging around the house.
I would pair this style with skinny jeans or leggings. They’ll even look great with a faux-leather skirt. Because you’re playing with a voluminous top, you’ll want to pair with a fitted bottom.
This will keep you from looking a bit too frumpy or shapeless. It’s also a great piece to layer on top of a cami as the temperature drops.
Sweater Trends – Fall Cardigans
There are two cardigan styles you’ll be seeing this season. The first cardigan trend is an ode to 90s fashion. Think short, sometimes even cropped, with a fitted look. This style will pair well with flares, or bottoms with a more relaxed look.
You’ll also see oversized fall cardigans this season. Think chunky knit, grandpa-style sweater cardigans with big, round buttons. Chunky, knit cardigan sweaters look great with a more relaxed look and will also keep you nice and warm as the temperature drops.
Sweater Trends – Argyle and Plaid Prints
You’ll see a ton of sweaters with pretty prints this year. While animal prints are still a go-to, you’ll want to swap out the leopard for plaid and argyle.
Plaid and argyle prints look great on crewneck sweaters and pair well with dark denim. They are also a familiar print this time of year.
