The 3 Fall Sweater Trends You Should Know Before Shopping

Before you shop for anything—a car, a piece of furniture, or a fashion item—it’s important that you do a little research. And while I can’t help you on the auto or décor fronts, if fall clothing or accessories are on your mind, I can confidently say that team Who What Wear has you more than covered.

In the last couple weeks, we've written about the fall boots that are already leading the pack, the handbag trends you need to know, the basics worth buying regardless of what's trending next season, and so much more. So what’s next on the fall fashion front? Sweaters, of course.

This year, the F/W 20 runways gave us three knitwear trends that stood out above the rest by a landslide. So if you’re getting ready to stock up, I highly suggest opting for one of the below. To see what made the cut, get some runway some inspiration, and, of course, shop my picks, just keep scrolling.

If you thought the matching sweater set craze was going away any time soon, I advise you to think again. In fact, designers seem to have doubled down on the trend, giving us even more new iterations for the coming season. Whether you’re looking for a skirt set, matching top and cardigan, or a three-piece situation, come fall your favorite brands at every price point will have you covered.

Bored of basics? Then this one is for you. In addition to the usual flow of more classic pieces, we also saw a ton of knits with extra adornments go down the F/W 2020 runways. Think feathers, fringe, bows, jewels, and more—all of which have the power to make any item instantly feel special.
