As the air gets crisper, it’s time to begin thinking about knitwear. Whether you’re into fitted cardigans or oversized crews, finding the perfect fall sweater will be easy thanks to our list. We’ve gone a little out of our comfort zones with some of these selects (think balloon sleeves, cashmere, graphic prints, and bright colors), but there are also classic-looking sweaters that can be paired with anything from jeans to skirts. Each of these knits will not only have you looking your best, but will also keep you warm and comfortable regardless of the autumn weather outside. FYI: We recommend picking up two or three so you’ll be set for the entire season before it even arrives.
