Casual Sweater Style: A Lady’s Weekend BFF

Well, if a casual Fall or Winter day doesn’t make you think of cozying up in a fabulous sweater, this is about to change all that. Big, chunky sweaters with Intarsia and Fair Isle patterns are must-haves this season. Embellishment is big this season, too, so touches of fur and intricate stitch details work perfectly with these woodsy, log cabin looks. Mod and ‘70’s inspirations brought back turtlenecks and all the great colors of those times that look so fresh again – dusty shades of grey, purple, pink, and teal on one end of the spectrum; olive green, mustard yellows, and deep reds on the other. With so many options, we’ve edited down to some of the very best for every cozy Fall day.
Let us know what you think in the comments below. If you missed our favorite sweaters for work or after 5 this week, check them out in our Fashion Finds. Whatever the occasion, we’ve got you covered. See you next week.

Soft Joie - Miren Stripe Cardigan

This sweater epitomizes the best of this season’s inspirations with its Navajo print stripes and relaxed feel. While truly over-sized, blanket styles are the “trend”, this interpretation from Joie makes it accessible and fashionable for all of us. The easy wrap style of the sweater still has a relaxed feel without that extremely chunky look. And the cotton fabric means you won’t get overheated, even if you are sitting by the fireplace – which is exactly what you’ll want to do in this sweater. Layer a plaid shirt underneath for a wintery feel or just wear your favorite tank or tee. Broken-in boyfriend jeans or black leggings will complete this effortlessly stylish look. If your size is already sold out at Nordstrom through the ‘shop it’ button, try Joie’s own site with free shipping & returns.

525 America - Hand Knit Mock Turtleneck Sweater
This sweater from 525 America has the look of a chunky, woodsy sweater, but reinterpreted in a feminine pale lilac cotton. Everything about this sweater is amazing, from the beautiful weight of the cotton – keeping you warm without getting too hot or itchy – to the flattering silhouette. The easy body has stylish off-center slits in the hem and cuffs making it look so special. Instead of a traditional fold- over turtleneck, this neckline is one layer that stands up, which is incredibly flattering and non-restrictive. Broken-in jeans in grey or traditional blue are an easy finish for a relaxed day, with brown boots. If you are shorter, you can even wear your trusty black leggings and boots.

Click through the ‘shop it’ button to see our favorite detail on Club Monaco’s soft cashmere open cardigan – the quilted leather elbow patches. They take a simple sweater up a fashion notch, providing just the detail to ground this lofty and airy wrap. It also comes in grey, but this pale denim blue is our top pick. Not only does it look great with your jeans in any wash, it’s such a flattering color for most skin tones. In only 2 sizes (XS/S, M/L) it’s a relaxed fit that works on most body types. Throw it on over everything, whether you’re wearing a button down, a tank, or a turtleneck. In Club Monaco’s picture, you can see how pretty it is over an easy dress, too.

Yummy. How else can we describe this gorgeous cashmere-blend sweater? The waffle stitch neck is a mix between a turtleneck and cowlneck for a relaxed, not tight neckline that is perfect with the easy and cozy feel of the body of the sweater (and so cute on a casual day when you are wearing your hair pulled back). Autumn Cashmere mixes stitch work and shades of grey for a relaxed, contemporary fitting dream. They also have a lighter weight, equally cozy and slouchy cashmere turtleneck if you prefer a finer knit. With color, basic denim or black, this sweater is going to be the one you reach for as the weather continues to cool down. It’s as easy as a sweatshirt with a whole lot more style.

The handkerchief hemline of this Joie sweater makes it a true Find. It stands away from the body for a relaxed fit, and is so much more polished than a basic untucked tee. The beautiful wool/cashmere blend is lightweight and incredibly soft. This featured heathered brown goes with everything, which makes it our top choice, but there’s also an amazing rich burgundy through the ‘shop it’ button. The length is long enough for all your skinny pants and leggings, but the body isn’t so over-sized that you can’t wear it with boyfriend jeans or trousers, too. The simple crewneck gives you room to play with a fun necklace or stylish scarf, too. Alice + Olivia even offers a colorblock grey and ivory version of this handkerchief hem, and they all create an effortlessly stylish way to get through the weekend.

Whether you are taking a walk through the Fall foliage, or just want to look that way, this poncho is your answer. From Tabitha, a brand we’ve loved for years, the neutral stripe colors means you can wear anything under it – a simple turtleneck is one of our favorites, in any color. The neckline looks great mostly unsnapped, as shown, but can also be snapped up for a cozy turtleneck – no scarf required. When you are hanging around your house in comfy jeans, joggers, or leggings, this is such an easy piece to put on over your outfit and look instantly presentable for errands, picking up the kids, and grabbing coffee with friends. Add knee high boots and your look is complete. (It even comes in petite, so if you’re shorter, you don’t need to worry about it looking too long.)

Banana Republic’s open vest has blanket stripe detail along the flutter hem that gives this sweater such a cozy feel. It’s easy over a simple tee or denim shirt, which can be left untucked, especially if you’re wearing skinny jeans or leggings. You can also add a slim belt (in black or brown) for a more polished finish, which looks great with knee high boots.

We should all have that timeless grey cardigan that we can wear with anything, at any time. This Joie sweater is it. Today, we’re showing it as a Casual Find, to wear over any tee or a great plaid shirt with your favorite jeans. But it’s just as easy to wear for a casual day at the office or a simple white button down or turtleneck and dark flare jeans or basic trousers. The ribbed stitch gives the relaxed fit and over-sized shape just the right amount of structure. You won’t know how you survived the cold without it.

This season, you want to have a cozy, cable knit sweater. But you may not want the heavy wool that often comes with that look. The BB Dakota cardigan is the answer. It may be a little wrinkled when you initially receive it, but once you iron it out (just that first time) the relaxed, contemporary fit looks great over a tee or turtleneck. The shape is really flattering with its asymmetrical hem that is longer on the sides. We love the mix of stitch work, using cable-knitting along the shawl and ribbing in both vertical and horizontal directions along the body. One of our favorite ways to wear this sweater is over a plaid shirt with broken-in jeans. You certainly can’t beat the price.

J.Crew’s sweaters are always worth adding to your wardrobe. This one has a boatneck and tunic style body for a really great update to a basic. The neckline shows off your collarbones, and that is always slimming. The dropped shoulder seam leads into a bit of a slimmer arm, which perfectly offsets the otherwise relaxed fit. J.Crew always do a great job with color, and this one is no exception. We’re featuring this pretty loden green (it looks great with denim, black, any shade of tan or brown, grey, mustard…you get the idea), and there are more colors through the ‘shop it’ button that are just as good-looking and versatile. In XXS-XL, and Petite, J.Crew’s modern and easy fit ensures this is a style that every lady can wear, whether you leave it untucked to benefit from the longer length or tuck the front in to create some shape. You can even layer it over a button down for a more tailored look. It’s a timeless staple that you’ll dress up and down all season long.

Madewell uses an incredibly soft wool blend that is brushed to cozy Sunday perfection for this open cardigan. Madewell is J.Crew’s sister company and that modern, yet effortless style is apparent. We’re featuring the gorgeous burgundy, since it is a pretty pop of color against all your neutral tees, leggings, and jeans – but it does come in grey and stylish camel, too. Whatever you choose, you won’t go wrong (and at this price, you may want more than one). In XXS-XL the relaxed shape works over everything, which is key. You don’t need to wear a fitted tee or tank for this to look good – even an a-line turtleneck or relaxed thermal top look great.
