There’s something magical about the onset of sweater season, which officially arrives at the Autumnal Equinox in September. Though it might be hot outside, you’ll know that sweater weather is coming when the wind starts to pick up and the trees start to change colors, signaling winter’s approach. So what should you do with your wardrobe? Here are 5 trends that are out and 5 that are in for sweaters this year.
5 Winter Fashion Trends You Should Try
The best way to mix and match winter colors is by layering two or more different tops of the same color, for a look that’s as eclectic as your closet.
- Bell sleeves:
If you’re feeling chilly, try out a vintage-inspired bell sleeve sweater.
- Twist front pullover:
Keep it simple with this easy knit design that keeps the cold out with a front zip closure
- Double-breasted styles:
For those who are ready for an upgrade from their classic peacoat, double breasted designs provide extra warmth with a stylish flair. For an extra touch of luxury, add in some fur trim on hoods and cuffs for ultimate coziness.
- Crop sweaters:
For those living in warmer climates who need something warm but don’t want to deal with heavy layers, cropped sweaters are the perfect solution.
1) Cozy Knitwear
Cozy knitwear has been a trend in recent years, with the bulky sweaters popping up everywhere from celebrity red carpets to your favorite café. The luxe-looking patterned sweaters are perfect for layering or wearing solo, depending on your personal style preference. The best part about this trend is that it’s not just for winter time—chunky knits can be worn year-round for a cozy look all year long.
2) Boho-Chic Outerwear
Boho-chic outerwear is the perfect solution for those of us who are still craving our favorite layering pieces from last year. This trend has been around for a while, but it’s back with a vengeance in 2017. And the good news is that this style never goes out of style.
3) Luxe Accessories
You might have heard of the term luxe before. Luxe is a descriptor for expensive clothing or accessories that are luxurious and glamorous. The word is often used when describing brands like Gucci, Prada, Louis Vuitton, etc. You can also find luxe accessories at H&M or Forever 21, but they don’t carry the same prestige as a brand like Louis Vuitton.
4) Crop Overalls (But Keep Them Clean!)
Crop overalls are a trend that is coming back from the ’90s, with celebrities wearing them on the red carpet. Pair your crop overalls with a loose shirt or sweater, high-top sneakers, and a fedora hat for an on-trend fall look.
