Sweaters: Slouchy, Soft, and the Perfect Sign of Fall

Cozy and comfy, a sweater is just the perfect thing for a casual fall or winter day. Whether you’re spending the day brunching, running errands, watching a movie, or catching up on email, or even heading into the office…well, they all seem better when you have that yummy sweater to throw on. It was hard to edit down our picks from the great options out there, but we are absolutely obsessed with each and every one of these.
Let us know what you think in the comments below. If you missed our picks for work or after 5 earlier in the week, check them out in our Fashion Finds. Whatever the occasion, we’ve got you covered. See you next week.

Let’s start off with the sweater look of the season – an oversized cashmere turtleneck. This teal looks gorgeous on all skin tones, but it does come in the color of the season – grey – and black, too. Whatever color you choose, Velvet’s soft cashmere and relaxed styling will get you through any day in comfort and style. Velvet is known for their high quality casual knits and this is certainly one of their best this season. The wide split hem adds comfort and ease around the hips and pairs effortlessly with your favorite jeans. If you’re shorter, you can even wear this with leggings and boots. Magaschoni, one of our finest sweater manufacturers, offers a similar option in a classic fit  (a bit more generous than Velvet’s). Wear it the same way.

Mark Shale has always loved Michael Stars knits – tees and sweaters. Well, this cowl neck top combines the best of both worlds in a cotton textured fabric. It has the drape of a sweater, but lighter weight that we love in a tee. Sometimes a wool or cashmere is too heavy, and in those times, you’ll be delighted you have this piece in your arsenal. The crochet stitch of the neckline and extended cuffs are so effortlessly cool. This cream color looks great with your favorite cords or plaid pants, as well as any jeans with brown or black boots.

Velvet has really outdone themselves in the sweater department this year, so we also couldn’t resist sharing this casually relaxed option. The cashmere is buttery soft and the rib detailing at the shoulders and interesting stitch work give it just that touch of timeless style. It’s a bit shorter, but not cropped, with a split hem so it looks polished with your jeans, while still not being at all fitted. This also comes in a beautifully soft blush pink color. 360 SWEATER also makes a fabulous classic crewneck, with a little more volume to the body by adding a pleat to the longer back. This is such a key silhouette for a casual day, you must get at least one. Truly, you’ll live in any of them.

Reds from the brightest to the deepest shades are very stylish this season (we’ll be talking about this more in a couple of weeks), and we love Brochu Walker’s interpretation in this very rich wine heather color. Not only do we love the color, we adore the textured stitch and exposed seams in a super soft wool. It gives the sweater such subtle character and hints at the high quality and classic feel that Brochu Walker is known for. The boxy fit is easy, but not truly oversized, so it doesn’t look at all messy when paired with your favorite jeans.

Another sweater that really stands out for its stitch work is this one from Equipment. The three different panels along the body are subtle, but so interesting, giving a little pop to an otherwise classically simple sweater – and we mean that in the very best possible way. The wool has a hint of cashmere to it, so it’s very soft. And the styling, while contemporary, is oversized (size down if you want t a trimmer look). Its just an easy, longer silhouette that looks great with a slim pant. We love this sophisticated heather brown with jewel tone jeans (though of course, grey or your favorite blue wash pair of jeans look great, too).

While the last 2 sweaters use stitching to create pattern, this gorgeous 360 SWEATER using color blocking. The dropped shoulder stitching and wider neckline create a slouchy feel in an easy fit that looks great with slim or skinny pants. The deep charcoal and mink brown color combination are a favorite of ours – since both colors are heathered, the contrast isn’t harsh, just effortlessly cool. And hey, we could use a little of that in our weekend style. This sweater looks just as great with black as it does with blue or grey jeans.

No fall/winter weekend wardrobe is complete without a few key cardigans to reach for on those cool, crisp morning. This one from Eileen Fisher is a truly relaxed fit, with a shot of leather on the sleeves that gives this otherwise simple piece a little edge. Don’t let that deter you from wearing it just like you would any other cardigan during the day – with your favorite tee and jeans or easy black pants. The great thing though, is that this detail can dress it up a bit, perfect for brunch. And by adding a dressier black pair of pants, this will seamlessly work for a dinner out, too.

We couldn’t believe the price on this sweater from Madewell, J. Crew’s sister company. It’s a great weight – not too heavy, but oh so cozy. It’s got the styling of a boyfriend sweater with an easy fit and button front, yet it’s not oversized or too long (just a little longer in the back)– exactly right for a lady. This rich cabernet red is so fall-right, but it comes in a few neutrals that we really love, too, especially the camel (click through the “shop it” button to take a look).

525 America has come out strong this season, with some classic sweater styles, at absolutely amazing prices. The quality is very nice, as you’ll find in this drapey open cardigan, and such a simple staple to throw on with your favorite tee. This sand color looks great with distressed jeans and brown boots, though the black marled color is equally neutral and easy. The sizing (XS/S or M/L) alludes to the easy fit that works for everyone.

As we’ve mentioned this week, AllSaints has done a phenomenal job with their sweaters this season, with an easier fit than most of their contemporary line, so they can work for most of us ladies – especially in easy styles like this open drape cardigan. As opposed to the last few cardigans we’ve shown you, this one is done in thinner pure wool, with a fine stitch, which creates a sleeker look that is also a great weekend option. It can dress up by wearing it over a simple dress or slim trousers, but we especially like it with a pair of ponte pants or jeans. The draping of the neckline hits at just the right spot on your body, concealing and not adding any bulk. We love this very deep charcoal, but it comes in two lighter neutrals that are just as luxe.

Let’s take our “athleisure” game up a notch, shall we? Sure, sweatpants have become not only socially acceptable, but fashion statements. We are still believers in finding some refinement to our versions, though. And J. Crew has satisfied that need perfectly with this yummy cashmere version. You will want to curl up on the couch with a good book (or good company) and glass of wine in these. They are nice and thick with an easy drawstring waist. We like to pair them with a soft cotton button-down shirt, like this chambray one  to complete the look. Belford also does an equally fabulous version in a true relaxed fit.
