4 Key Sweater Styles to Add to Your Fall Rotation, Because Who Doesn't Love Options?
If, like a lot of us, you've been rotating between pajamas, robes, house dresses, and the occasional swimsuit, fall might be the motivation you need to switch things up. Sweaters are a requisite seasonal purchase, so grabbing a few extra styles even when we're staying home seems like a solid investment, right? Especially if these sweaters don't look exactly like the ones already cramming your drawers — that's where we come in.
In the name of mixing things up and to provide you with some styles you'll wear well beyond this one season, we're introducing four fresh trends that originated on the runways, but will still be plenty practical in your own homes. From cutouts that feel fresh but not over-the-top to long-line cardigans that could double as a robe or dress, these are the pieces you'll want to wear and repeat.
2020 Sweater Trends: Long Cardigans
Maybe it's all the robe dressing we've been getting into, but a longer cardigan that could possibly double as a dress feels like a close second to the loungewear we've been loving as of late. Choose a lighter fabric to ease into the transition to cooler months, then embrace a chunky knit to warm up when the chill sets in. Whichever style you pick, the effect is easy-chic at its best.
From doily-like collars to rhinestone buttons, vintage takes on the sweater feel feminine and just a bit romantic. They're like your grandmother's best knits, only we're styling them with contemporary pieces like our laid-back denim.
Cute and Cropped
Rooted in the '60s pin-up girl styles and in '90s nostalgia (think Cher Horowitz), these cropped styles are all about personality, whatever you choose to pair them with. For now, try layering up a cropped cardigan over a tank-and-shorts set, but there's no shame in pairing them with sweatpants either.

The fall 2020 runways gave way to slashed and sliced knits for a cool update on our fall hero piece. These sweaters spark interest — and a little sex appeal — with flashes of skin when you least expected them.
