Sweater weather has arrived! In general, sweaters have always been and will be in fashion in the fall. How we style them really matters.

The best sweater trends for autumn
draped over the shoulders
A trendy look for fall and winter 2022 – and into 2023 – is draping or tying a sweater over the shoulders. It creates serious casualness for an effortlessly chic look and is really easy to wear. Doing this with a thicker knit is now especially important!
Our favorite sweater for the look: YIBOCK Loose Cardigan
Tied around the waist
You can also take the sweater off your shoulders and tie it around your waist instead. This is what we usually do when we warm up, but if you do it on purpose, it can also become a key part of our clothes!
Our favorite sweater for the look: Amazon Essentials Long Sleeve Crew Neck Lightweight Sweater
With only one or two buttoned buttons
While we’re used to wearing our cardigans for the most part completely open, we’ve really fallen in love with the one-button or two-button look, especially on a cropped or tighter sweater. Try buttoning one or two buttons down the center of your bust and wearing a cardigan over a dress or tank top with jeans!
Our favorite sweater for the look: Grace Karin cropped cardigan
Speaking of buttons, how about a cardigan with fun-shaped buttons? Even switching from round buttons to square or triangular ones can instantly make your sweater stand out. Our current favorite actually has heart shaped buttons, so we obviously knew we had to share it!
Our favorite sweater for the look: KOJOOIN Cropped cardigan
We all know that oversized is all the rage right now, but that doesn’t mean you have to choose any sweater that’s just too big for you. That means looking for details like super-dropped shoulder seams and voluminous sleeves. An oversized slouchy sweater is often best paired with leggings or skinny jeans—or even partially tucked into a miniskirt or midi skirt!
Our favorite sweater for the look: SALENT Oversized Sweater
Color blocking is one thing, but take it to the next level by choosing a sweater that isn’t afraid to go a little off. Don’t be afraid of a slightly asymmetrical look. Try a sweater with colorful sleeves!
Our favorite sweater for the look: Saodimallsu color-block cardigan
Bold prints and designs
Not every sweater has to be elegantly modest. Have some fun with it. If you want to be brave, be brave! Try something that looks like a painting with unique shapes, multiple colors and an immediately eye-catching look. If it gets your attention, it will get everyone else. Pair it with plain jeans or even pick a vibrant shade from the color wheel for your trousers!
Our favorite sweater for the look: MISSACTIVER Print Pullover Sweater
