The Preppy Sweater Trend That's About to Dominate Fall 2021

Every time fall comes around, without fail, I find myself rewatching the "sweata weatha" clip from Saturday Night Live featuring Amy Poehler and Maya Rudolph. Can you blame me? Even though Los Angeles hardly gets any fall weather, I always look forward to cozying up in new-season sweaters the second October hits. 

This year, I have a feeling we'll be seeing a lot of one specific type of sweater: half-zip sweaters with collars. A little bit preppy but absolutely classic, the style is endlessly wearable. Whether you're into a slim-fitting, long-sleeve version or a chunky, oversize one, I guarantee you'll find something you love in my handpicked roundup below.

Erin Fitzpatrick
Senior News Editor

Erin got her start as a Who What Wear intern over 12 years ago—back when the site only published a single story per day. (Who What Wear has since increased that number twentyfold.) She graduated magna cum laude from USC, which is how she ended up moving to Los Angeles from her hometown of San Diego. In college, she also interned at Refinery29, where she was promoted to editorial assistant and then assistant editor. After nearly three years at R29, she came back to WWW in 2016, where she currently holds the title of senior news editor (as well as the unofficial title of resident royal expert—in case you haven't noticed her numerous Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton stories). She spends her days trying to incorporate her idols, Anna Wintour and Roger Federer, into as many stories as possible. Outside of work, she loves tennis, classic rock, traveling, and smothering her dog with affection.
