While Shopping for Sweaters for Myself, I Found the Trend That’s Blowing Up

best collared sweaters



I really don't have a need for many new fall clothes this year, which I imagine is the case for most of us, but one thing I do have a need for (because I kind of purged many of them at the end of last winter) is sweaters. Unlike some fashion items, a sweater is something that I can even wear on days when I'm just at home working, so it feels like a valid use of my shopping budget.

In searching for some new sweaters to add to my collection, recently, I've come to a conclusion: The biggest sweater trend of the year is collared (AKA polo) sweaters. They're present and accounted for across brands both high and low. Some have buttons while some are V-neck and some are fitted while some are loose. There's really a polo sweater for everyone out there, and in case you need some help narrowing it down, keep scrolling to shop my favorite ones.

And I'll probably be ordering this one in the near future.

If you prefer a lightweight sweater, here you go.

J.Crew's iteration comes in an array of pretty colors.

This is available for pre-order and I'd say it's worth the wait.

This brand is an excellent secret source for knitwear.

Totême's take on the trend is very chic, per usual.

Khaite really nailed the trend, naturally.

& Other Stories' sweaters are always wearable but never boring.

Of course Staud makes one of the best versions of the trend.

A slim ribbed style is perfect for tucking.

A zipper instead of buttons is a cool update.

What's not to love about this color combo?

One can never have too many & Other Stories sweaters.

What I wish I was wearing right now, now that it's fall.

I love so many things about this cardigan-polo sweater hybrid.

It's impossible not to look on-trend in this one.
