Top 10: Perfect Sweaters For Fall

It’s officially sweater weather.  And for Fall 2015 designers took a retro-inspired trip back to the 90’s; to the simplicity, naturalness, ease and honesty of dressing at that time From cable knit to razor knit, from printed to monochrome, these are our top ten perfect sweaters for fall.

The Cable Knit

Varsity v-neck sweaters have changed dramatically over the years.  The sports-wear flavor has evolved to a tough-as-nails edge, as seen by this tunic-style, cable-knit sweater by Proenza Schouler.

The Razor knit

The Row upped the anty of the high-luxe cashmere sweater with their razor thin knit sweater meant to tuck into slacks, or layer under dresses, making a luxury statement piece something more versatile and stylish.

Monochrome

Monochrome looks were often broken up with a poignant piece of plaid, often a button down flannel, tied around the waist. Now monochrome knits are back but are used for easy styling when paired with contrasting textiles, in identical shades as shown with this offering by Public School.

Layered

The 90s bore the ‘crop-top’ knit with exposed abs and belly buttons, which is all well for spring and early summer.  To transition this same sweater for fall, No21 layered their crop top mohair wool jumper over a fluffy bevy of romantic feathers.

Printed

The 90s cemented the Christmas sweater into our cultural DNA, but the modern version is Miu Miu‘s printed sweater.  The more psychedelic the better, just remember, keep those Christmas shades in homage to the theme.

Embellished

Grunge

Kurt Cobain may have been the poster child for Grunge in the 90s but the meaning of grunge has changed.  Grunge is now the equivalent of quiet minimalism as seen with this piece by Damir Doma.

Oversized
