The 5 Sweaters I’ll Be Re-Running All Fall Long


Hey, hey, gang. If there’s one thing I’ve become an expert at since moving to the coast, it’s sweaters. For better or worse, we have sweater weather here pretty much year-round, so my closet is chock-fulla them. But, of course, not all are created equal.

I tend to collect sweaters in neutral hues; chic drapey silhouettes (part of my whole “schleppy-chic” aesthetic that more or less enables me to wear lounge clothes around the clock); and natural fibers that wash easily and wear well over time. And, of course, comfort is always key.

5 Fall Sweaters I Could Rave About All. Day. Long.

With that in mind, today, I’m sharing five of the sweaters I’m most looking forward to wearing this fall. Bring on snuggle season!

My Ideal Sweater? Neutral, Drapey, & Easy To Wash + Wear. Here Are 5 Keepers.

1. Gap Shaker-Stitch Sweater: I could dedicate an entire post to this sweater. It’s constructed so well and completely wears like a much higher-end piece. The rolled, slightly oversized crew neck is crazy flattering, the knit is textured without being snaggable, and the pocket styling is just good. It’s long enough to tuck but not so long that it looks sloppy untucked. 100% cotton! And the colors are great. Also lusting after this similar Shaker-Stitch Balloon Sleeve style.

2. Banana Republic Ribbed Dolman Sleeve Sweater: Well, shoot, this one is sold out, but the shape and drape are super-similar on this Open Edit Ribbed Dolman Sweater. And the dolman sleeves don’t look overly exaggerated. Really lovely colors, too.

3. Abercrombie Cable-Knit Cardigan: My exact sweater is from a past season, but I just picked up this Gap Shaker-Stitch Boyfriend Cardigan, and it’s absolutely perfect. (Unsurprising since I’m so smitten with the pullover version above.) This J. Crew Cable-Knit Stretch Wool Cardigan also has a similar texture and style, but it looks a little more plush/luxe. And this Abercrombie Slouchy Cardigan has a verrry similar shape and proportions. I love the rich brown.

4. Naadam Recycled Cashmere Hoodie: Naadam does cashmere so well. In my opinion, it’s the best quality you can get for the price, with its sweaters ranging in weight and and increasing in price the loftier and more luxe they become. This hoodie is on the lighter end of the spectrum (but still plenty substantial and not at all sheer) and the ideal weight for layering under a leather or denim jacket. If you happen to catch Naadam when they’re having a sale (they only have a few a year), it’s absolutely worth stocking up. They’re typically final sale, so my advice would be to err on the side of sizing up. I’m between XS and S in most sweaters and always go for a small in Naadam.

5. Naadam Luxe Turtleneck: One of the loftiest sweaters Naadam makes and worth every penny (though, again, there’s no harm waiting for a sale). So very cozy, not at all itchy against my neck or chin, and just delightfully luxe. With a long-sleeve tee under, it can handle most everything our mild coastside winters throw at it, but it’s not SO thick that you couldn’t layer it over/under more substantial winter wear for true cold-weather applications.

    • I feel like the quality can’t be beat — and not even with the caveat “for the price.” It’s just a really well-designed sweater!
