One of our favorite things about Fall is keeping cozy by wearing sweaters and knitwear. That comfortable, warm feeling to wrap up in soft, chunky knits is here again and we have some of the most trending knitwear styles to share with you for the season.

As the temperature starts to drop and the pumpkin spice hits stores, we start getting into a Fall mood. One of our favorite things about Fall is keeping cozy by wearing sweaters and knitwear. That comfortable, warm feeling to wrap up in soft, chunky knits is here again and we have some of the most trending knitwear styles to share with you for the season. Comfort dressing and knitwear has been a huge trend and reached a fever pitch since the onset of the pandemic and it’s still just as big now making knitwear one of the most popular trends showing in Fall and Winter fashion.

COLOR BLOCKING

Color blocking is a trend in itself, however, in knitwear color blocking is popping up everywhere in the form of sweaters or mixing separates. Color blocking refers to the use of blocks of contrasting, solid colors put together. We’re seeing a lot of bright colors being paired together this season overlapping with the trend of saturated colors.

Saturated Shades

An unexpected hue for this time of year are saturated shades. Usually reserved for the warmer weather, these bold shades feel fresh and different for Fall. The runways were full of head to toe looks featuring unlikely combos in saturated shades. To nail this color story, pair different items in monochromatic shades, or go all out and accessorize in bold contrasting shades !!!

CARDIGANS

It could be the most loved layering piece in fashion. Cardigans are a staple for your wardrobe all year round. Their versatility is endless and this signature item can be worn for business and casual settings. Cardigans come in many forms and you can take your pick this season from the nearly endless choice of options such as open front or button styles and long line to cropped. Matching sets of a top and cardigan co-ord are also a huge part of this trend and we’re seeing a lot of that too.

ARGYLE

Giving a nod to preppy dressing, argyle is having a big moment with knitwear in the spotlight. The iconic diamond pattern is highly featured on sweaters, vests and knitwear this season. The geometric design comes in a wide array of colors to catch your eye.

RETRO

Call it grandma knits or colorful crochet but sweaters in retro styles and colors or patterns reminiscent of decades past are putting a spin on traditional knitwear.  These designs certainly have their own niche in the knitwear space and with the rise of vintage and retro styles it’s no surprise to see it appearing in knitwear as well.

Collared sweaters are another trend that’s taking over knitwear. Embellished collars especially with fur are attracting a lot of attention. Split neck collars and other iterations of this style are also widely popular.

SWEATER VESTS

Most likely the queen of all the knitwear trends this season is the sweater vest. You can’t walk into any retail store or hit an online homepage without seeing them center stage. This trend has been around for a few seasons but it’s at the pinnacle of popularity now.

With preppy, argyle and knitwear trends colliding, sweater vests are a must have for your closet. Wear them alone or layered with a tee or button down collared shirt for a variety of looks. To get the look, wear them with boyfriend or high waisted jeans.

CABLE KNITS

At the forefront of knitwear this season are chunky, thicker cable knits.  The traditional cozy design is seen on sweaters, cardigans vests and more. Cable knit is a timeless classic so we are loving that it’s also a hot trend right now.

TEXTURE

This is not your basic knits. Different textures in knitwear are also popular. Whether it’s ribbed details, embroidered patterns or mixed stiches the interesting ways designers are using various textures in knits to create unique weaves makes having multiple knits a must.

EMBELLISHED BUTTONS

It’s all in the details. When it comes to sweaters and cardigans, there is plenty of bling. Crystals, bejeweled and decorative button accents are a trend that has come back from last year. Adding a touch of femininity, uniqueness and vintage aesthetic elevates a basic sweater taking it to the next level. These sweaters can be dressed up or down for maximum wearability.
