Sweater weather is here! Sept. 22 marks the official first day of fall, which means it’s time to live in cozy knits and sweaters for the foreseeable future.
While you undoubtedly have a few faves from seasons past, you should always add a few new sweaters to your wardrobe each year. Older ones will inevitably show signs of wear or feel a bit dated, so adding new options is a great way to keep your closet current.
Cashmere crewnecks and knit turtlenecks are classic styles that never go out of style, but if you’re looking for something more standout, start with the five sweater trends below. They’re all versatile looks you can wear to work, dinner or even while lounging at home.
1. Polo Collar
If you’re into the “old money” aesthetic that’s trending on TikTok, then you need a polo collar sweater in your wardrobe. This style looks great with jeans, but you can also pair it with a pencil skirt or satin midi for a dressier look.

2. Cropped Cardigans
Crop tops aren’t going anywhere just because the temps are dropping. A crop cardigan is the perfect top to wear with high-waisted pants or over your favorite dress.

3. Sweater Vests
Sweater vests may seem tricky to pull off, but don’t overthink them. When the weather is still mild, wear one on its own. When it gets cooler, layer it over a button-front shirt, a long-sleeve tee or a dress.
4. Henley Sweaters
The button detail on henley sweaters means you can show as much or as little skin as you want. This style looks great when you’re out, but it’s also perfect when paired with leggings for a night on the couch.

5. Black & White
This season features so many cool black and white sweaters. In addition to classic stripes, invest in an eye-catching checkerboard pattern or a fun floral pattern.
