Fall officially sets in this Saturday, and I’m so excited because it’s one of my favorite seasons ever! To say something along the lines of sweater weather probably sound cliché, but I honestly can’t think of anything I want to wear more than cozy knits right now. It’s the perfect comfort piece for the season as the air becomes crisp and the weather gets cooler. With that said, it’s super important to build up a versatile collection that you can wear anywhere, anytime. I’ve put together an essential collection of all the sweater styles you’ll need for fall. Once you grab a hold of these styles, you’ll be all set for the season.
1. Chunky Knit
First up is a classic chunky knit. Whether you prefer a waffle or cable knit, there’s no denying chunky knits look great with everything from jeans and mini skirts to dresses. You can never go wrong with neutral tones, but try a classic autumn color like mustard or tawny brown for a change.

Cardigans are the perfect option for days you want something light to wear throughout the day. I like to substitute my cardigans for coats when it just isn’t quite cold enough. They are so perfect for layering and can be worn buttoned or opened.

3. Sweater Dress
If you ever find yourself in a fall style rut, a sweater dress is perfect for keeping things simple but classy. I prefer to keep the length above the knees and love pairing them with over-the-knee boots. Your styling options are endless – you can even add a belt for a cinched waist effect.
4. Crop Sweater
I sometimes find early fall weather tricky with cooler mornings and evenings but hot afternoons. A crop sweater is one of those pieces that are perfect for fickle weather. You can wear them with high-waisted shorts like I did here and even pair them with skirts. Once the temperatures drop, crop sweaters look equally as chic with leather pants or denim.
I love turtlenecks because they always make an outfit look polished. Wear it in a bright, bold color to add drama to your look. Turtleneck sweaters with billowy sleeves are my favorite like this one here.
