Top Sweater Trends for Fall

Over the Shoulders

The look of the moment for fall and winter 2022 — and heading into 2023 — is draping or tying your sweater over your shoulders. This gives you a chic, effortless look that is casually elegant. This look is particularly popular right now with a chunkier knit.

It’s amazing!

Tie around the Waist

You can also pull your sweater down to your shoulders and tie it around the waist. This is something we typically do when we get warm, but if you’re intentional about it, it can become a key part of our outfits as well!

With just one or two buttons fastened

While we’re used to wearing our cardigans totally unbuttoned for the most part, we’ve really fallen in love with the one or two-button look, especially on a cropped or more fitted sweater. Layer the cardigan over a dress, tank, or jeans by only buttoning one or two of the buttons in the middle of the chest.

Fun Buttons

Speaking of buttons — how about a cardigan with buttons in a fun shape? You can instantly make your sweater standout by switching from circular buttons, to square or triangle buttons. We love the heart-shaped buttons on our favorite sweater of the moment, so we knew we had to share it with you!

Slouchy, oversized clothes

We all know that oversized is very in right now, but that doesn’t mean picking out any sweater that’s simply big on you. Look out for details such as super-dropped shoulders and long sleeves. An oversized, slouchy sweater is often paired best with leggings or fitted jeans — or even partly tucked into a mini or midi skirt!

It’s amazing!

Asymmetrical colors

Color-blocking is one thing, but take it to the next level by opting for a sweater that isn’t afraid to do a little mismatching. Don’t be afraid to go a little asymmetrical. You can try a sweater with different sleeves!

Bold Prints and Designs

You don’t have to wear a sweater that is elegantly sophisticated. Have fun with it. Go bold if you want to be bold. You can create something that looks like a painting, with many colors and unique shapes. It will be eye-catching! If it draws your eye, it will draw everyone else’s too. You can pair it with jeans or choose a brighter shade from the color wheel.
