Sweaters everywhere! The fall 2014 runways were filled with every kind of sweater imaginable—slinky ribbed tunics, chunky turtlenecks, slouchy sweater dresses; you name it, it was there. And thank goodness, because there’s nothing that makes fall feel more like fall than pulling on a really great, cozy sweater. Here are the five styles that will get you through this winter season in style.
1. A Cropped Crewneck
Whether slouchy or slim, a cropped crewneck sweater is one of the most versatile cold-weather toppers around. Wear yours with anything high-waisted—it looks super polished with pencil skirts, jeans, wide-legged trousers, and tailored gauchos. Layer them over dresses and button-down shirts for extra appeal.
2. A Chunky Cable-Knit
These heritage knits are a fall classic, and with good reason: Not only do they add a hint of rustic-chic to every outfit, they’re also insanely warm. This season, look for sweaters with dramatic motifs—the bigger and chunkier, the better!
3. A Slouchy Sweaterdress
Forget clingy sweaterdresses that show every bulge. This season’s best are all about comfort. To avoid looking sloppy, choose shapes with built-in structure: sculpted sleeves, side slits, and rolled turtlenecks.
4. A Sleek Turtleneck
Meet your winter wardrobe workhorse: totally polished when worn on its own with pants or a skirt; insanely chic when layered under a dress or jumpsuit.
5. A Drapey, Asymmetric Tunic
So perfect for those days when you’re short on time but still want to look cool. Wear with skinny jeans or leather leggings or—if you’re especially adventurous—over cropped wide-pants.
