Are you looking to buy a sweater?

Madewell cable sweater

You are in luck because every style is in for fall & winter. Oversized or cropped sweaters, slim cut cashmeres, and chunky popcorn knits are also very in for this winter.

I personally love big cable sweaters (sort of a fisherman’s look) and when I need to dress up a bit, a very thin cashmere keeps me warm, and I also add layers for a more stylish look.

Long sweaters are always stylish since you can wear them with leggings, wide-legged pants, or skirts.

Cropped sweaters are a cool look and it is still in for this winter  and a much better look to me unless your belly button is peeking out.

Colors are also a very important aspect of clothing, so remember rust colors are in this year.
