Forget pants, coats, even boots—the first thing we gravitate toward when temps dip are the best fall sweaters. Don’t get us wrong, we’re all for ribbed tank tops and airy shirt dresses when it’s hot as sin outside, but nothing makes us feel as cozy as being swaddled in layers of soft fabric on chilly days. And while you may have a box of last year’s fall clothes in storage waiting to be unpacked, this year’s assortment of knitwear is looking exceptionally promising.
Sweater vests, long-sleeve polos, and mohair cardigans primed for an ab reveal are all in the mix—and for good reason: They’re equal parts timeless and on-trend, and perfectly versatile for nailing transitional dressing during this awkward in-between time of year. Some of these aforementioned styles err on the chunky side, but the majority come in lightweight fabrics and relaxed fits that you can effortlessly throw over your favorite jeans—not to mention under a number of fall jackets, like blazers and teddy bombers.
From nautical knits to retro fits, round out your closet with one of the 25 best fall sweaters, below.
