The Types of Sweaters You Need to Know About

Now that the cooler weather is coming, we need to think about sweaters.

Sweaters are great cold weather items. They are perfect for keeping us warm. They can be worn as an outer piece, such as a cardigan, or they can be worn as a shirt.

If you are thinking of incorporated sweaters into your fall wardrobe, here are a few types that should be on your radar.

Crew Neck



Crew neck sweaters offer a classic, no-nonsense look. Solid crewnecks tend to have a preppy vibe but if they have an interesting print, the print will dominate its look. Crewneck sweaters look great with a pair of jeans. They also can go with a skirt but they tend to have a baggy look that makes them suited for sleeker lines on the bottom.



V-Necks have been rising in popularity lately and are a favorite with the hipster generation. These sweaters also tend to be baggie and go best with a pair of jeans. You can also wear a collar under them to add interest to the look.



Cardigans are great for when you catch a chill. They make terrific outerwear during cool days and you can also put them on indoors when you are feeling cold. They tend to have a preppy look but they are available in so many diverse styles, they can add a vibe that ranges from conservative to alternative.



Turtlenecks are another type of sweater that can have an uptight, professor vibe, but they can also provide a sleek and sophisticated look that brings us back to the vintage eras of the 60’s and 70’s. When sweaters are tight throughout, they look great with a mini and a pair of boots or a tight-fitting pair of jeans or leggings. 

Sweater Dresses


Sweaters that are a bit longer can be worn with a pair of tights or leggings or on their own making for a sexy look. Sweater dresses are typically minis that come a few inches above the knee. They are great for semi-formal occasions, workwear or a day or night on the town.

Crop Sweaters


Crop tops are big this year. They are a look that was resurrected from the 80’s. They are cute and sexy and great for showing off curves. While crop sweaters may not be the most practical item of clothing, they sure are fashionable. They look great with a skirt, shorts or jeans.

Two Piece Cardigan Set


Two-piece cardigan sets are extremely versatile. You can wear them as a two piece to provide a professional look when it’s chilly out and, once the temperature rises, take off the outer layer for a sexier style.

Cut Out Shoulder Sweaters


Who says you can’t look sexy when the temperature drops? The cut-out look is perfect for when you want to add a little style and flair to your sweater looks. They are great for semi-formal occasions and they are perfect for showing some skin while keeping warm.

Sweaters are a great way to keep warm and look stylish while doing it. Which of these types of sweaters are your favorite?
