Save vs. Splurge: Coziest Fall Sweaters to Live In


fashion blogger mia mia mine wearing a chunky turtleneck sweater from revolve and red christian louboutin eloise pumps I don’t think there’s anything better than a cozy knit during fall. At this point in time, sweaters and knits of every kind have a constant presence in my life because they complete all my autumnal looks with little effort. They always look good whether they’re thrown over jeans or tucked into skirts. And with temperatures only heading south from here on out, it’s a good time to build a solid assortment of knits for peak sweater weather. As I continue to fill out my closet in preparation for the frigid weather, I’m constantly faced with the question of whether I should save money or splurge on these quintessential pieces. If you’re having the same dilemma, find out where I invest and save when it comes to cozy fall sweaters.

Where I Splurge…


Cashmere Sweater

For a sweater that feels as amazing on as it looks, cashmere is your answer. This fabric easily transitions from day to night, allowing you to maximize its wearability.

Where I Save…

Forever 21

Ribbed Knit Sweater

When it comes basic sweaters such as a ribbed knit, I prefer to go for affordable options. The deep V neckline on this one is as cute as it is comfy - and it's less than $30!

Fine Knit Sweater

Save your dollars on lightweight sweaters by opting for high street brands. Fine knit sweaters are ideal for running to errands or lounging around the house. This one is a steal at under $15.

Off The Shoulder Sweater

Although this is a universally flattering style, it's not the most practical in terms of warmth. However, I love the elegant neckline that dresses up a pair of jeans.

Chunky Knit Sweater

A chunky crop sweater is the ideal partner for high-waisted skirts and denim for a cozy approach to weekend wear.

Whether your preference is something thick and warm or light and breathable, cardigans are great for layering overtop any outfit.

Open Knit Sweater

Open knit sweaters oftentimes look cozier than they actually are. And though they're effortlessly chic, it is good style to save on.
