My Ten Favorite Sweaters for Fall!

Sweaters for Fall - The Stripe


It’s officially SWEATER WEATHER! Well, not yesterday (Tuesday… it was 80 degrees – in mid October.. what was that!?) but generally speaking, it’s finally time to reach for your favorite cozy sweaters which just makes me the happiest. Fall is definitely where I invest the most in my wardrobe, and sweaters are a big part of that. Nothing makes me happier than a big cozy sweater this time of year. I’m definitely a sucker for nice cashmere, but I don’t discriminate against more affordable brands either. If it’s soft and cozy, I love it!

Today I’m rounding up the best of the best… my favorite sweaters for Fall. I’ve included a range of price points. A few are definitely splurges (Vince + Acne especially… most of my sweaters come from Free People but I buy one or two sweaters from each of these brands every season and have built up a little collection of them. The quality of both brands is really good… while my Free People sweaters only last a couple years both of these brands really stand the test of time).

    Damn you, Grace Atwood! I have purchased about 6 sweaters in the last week and now I want at least 5 more. AND I live in southern CA where we have maybe a 4 week window of sweater weather. Sigh!

  3. All of these look gorgeous! I love how you’ve put this together!

    Happy Wednesday!

    Love these! That #9 J Crew has me dying for a cozy and romantic weekend in the mountains (plus it’s 80 degrees – come on fall!). And J Crew Mercantile has a storefront near my office – definitely my go-to for reliable basics much like Loft was in the 90s.

    VERY into all of these sweaters. I want a Free People one so badly, they look so cozy, but have put a ban on myself since Florida hasn’t cooled down in like three years. It’s killing me.

    Sweater weather is my favorite time of year!! It’s finally supposed to cool down tomorrow in NJ and I can’t wait!

      Oh gosh I hope so. My AC is not working and I’m dying over here! This sporadic weather is not doing it for me.
