Sweater weather is officially upon us! As I write this, the rain is pitter pattering against my window, making me want to snuggle with some wiener dogs. Instead, I’ve got a long to do list ahead of me. I’m finding some small comfort in my snuggly oversized knit sweater, an essential on days like this. There are so many options: cableknit, cashmere, hooded, cardigan, v-neck… I want them ALL.
Get ready, you guys — there are some amazing sweaters out there right now. It’s gonna be a long post!

When picking a sweater, I always always always go for texture. And 9 times out of 10, I am drawn to oversized silhouettes. I grew up in a household that was on every catalog mailing list, including Victoria’s Secret. In the ’90s, the models were all draped in oversized ivory sweaters and I still recall how chic that looked… and now that I really think about it, that’s such a sexy look, too!

I’ve also been experimenting with doing the ‘half-tuck’ for my sweaters. Usually I pull off this look with my skinny jeans because they help to balance out the volume of my giant sweater!

By far, my favorite part about sweater weather is exploring all of the fun knit textures. I’m constantly blown away by what sweater designers are able to pull off, especially the oversized loose knits and shaggy fringe details.
