There’s a reason fall is the most favorable of the four seasons for many. In addition to marking the official countdown to the holiday season, this time of year marks the commencement of sweater weather. But, while a cozy sweater is definitely an autumn staple, choosing the right one marks the real test.

According to Marie Claire, browns and earth tones (which the publication adoringly dubs “craving caramels”) are widely considered a timeless fall color scheme and are particularly a star go-to for the 2020 fall season.

Think about it — browns, taupes, tans and other earth tones warmly complement any skin tone and perfectly pair with several other fall staples like overcoats, boots and scarves of any color. Also, I would be remiss to ignore that this color palette makes for the most Instagram-worthy photos you can imagine (especially with the brown falling leaves serving as your au naturel background).

While Marie Claire listed the likes of Hermès, Dior and Tibi as the spear-headers of this 2020 fall runway trend, it’s safe to say that luxury high fashion pieces are financially out of reach for most.

To help you achieve this timeless fall look while sticking to a budget that’s under $200, we’ve listed 10 of our favorite earth-tone sweaters that will certainly upgrade your fall fashion game.

From sporty picks from the likes of Nike and Bandier to dressier options like Eloquii and Everlane — and everything in between — we’ve got you covered for every style, price and function. Happy shopping!
