The Grandpa Sweater

Michelle says, “My favorite fall sweater is actually a hand-me-down from my grandfather! He passed in 2019 and wearing it makes it feel like he’s hugging me again. I’m so happy that oversized sweaters are back in – I wear it all the time and it matches a ton! Unfortunately, it’s about 20 years old so it’s no longer on the market, but this is your sign to go through your grandfather or dad’s closets!”

Here are similar options from Quince and Natural Life.

The Pink Pick

Michelle shares, “I found this pink sweater at a random store and I love it! It’s so comfy and cute – and it reminds me of cotton candy! It was the perfect compliment to my trip to Chicago – kept me warm while sightseeing! I couldn’t find a link unfortunately but these sweaters are similar!”

The Textured Crew

Nicole explains, “I am obsessed with this textured crewneck from Able! I love the color and pattern on this sweater. It stands out and gives a basic and classic sweater style an updated vibe. And it goes with so much! It’s perfect with skirts and jeans, and I even love to wear my sweaters over dresses!”

The Oversized Tunic

Jovi shares, “This tunic is the perfect boyfriend sweater! It’s sooo cozy and soft. I love that I can dress this up with jeans and some cute boots, or be more cozy and wear it around the house to lounge in. It’s true to size but since it has an oversized fit, size down if you want a more fitted look. I got this tunic in 3 different colors because it’s that good!”

The Sherpa Sweater

Jovi loves is because: “You could live in this sweater both at home and outdoors! It’s a great sherpa pull over to keep you so warm and cozy! It’s great to add layers underneath to keep you extra warm for a snow day! This sherpa pullover is such a good addition to your closet. It goes with everything from sweatpants, to jeans, to joggers, and jeggings! I have it in 2 different colors and I’m planning to buy more. You must add this to your Fall/Winter collection; it’s going to be a staple!”

A Cozy Knit

Alyssa gushes, “I wasn’t prepared for how genuinely cozy and wonderful this sweater is. Even though I’ve only had it for a few weeks, it has already become a winter staple for me! It’s incredibly soft and stretchy and has a super flattering mock neck. I love that you can dress it up or down, depending on the occasion.”

Your College Sweatshirt

Candice shares, “My favorite fall sweater are those cozy student merch sweatshirts from colleges or universities. Though they may be expensive, you can easily snag one for maybe $20-$30, when there’s a sale going on. They’re colorful and classy too: You can rep whichever school you choose or your alma mater even after graduation. And you won’t need to freeze for that.”
