Sweater weather is finally upon us, and we couldn't be happier. Just to make things clear, sweater weather doesn't only call for ultimate comfort, but it also calls for head-turning fashion (did somebody say OOTD photos?).
That's why we've rounded up 15 of the best fall sweaters and cardigans that strike a fine balance between comfort and style. These chic knits give sweater weather brand-new meaning.
1. Shaker Stitch Pullover Turtleneck Sweater
When in doubt, you can never go wrong with a classic pullover sweater. This one from Gap is made with a tried-and-true straight silhouette, making it a must-have staple for your fall wardrobe. But what we really love about this knit number is its fashion-forward dropped shoulder detail.
Buy it here: Gap, $74.95
2. Sweater 2502
You can't do sweater weather without a long, cozy cardigan. This knit one is perfect for easy layering on cooler days and has handy front pockets. Made with touches of wool, we don't doubt you'll want this number in all three shades.
Buy it here: Oak+Fort, $118
3. Pierre Beaded Sweater
There's no better way to glam up a chunky sweater than with luxe embellishments. Rather than rocking a statement necklace, let this beautiful plum gold-beaded sweater do all the talking for your outfit. Its ribbed hems make it the ideal topper for skirts and high-waisted trousers.

4. Off-The-Shoulder Cable Knit Sweater
When in doubt, never underestimate the styling powers of an off-the-shoulder detail. This style effortlessly transforms the look of a chunky sweater into something très chic, without compromising comfort.

5. Rinty Sweater
We understand how easy it is to lean towards the greys and blacks in your wardrobe when the gloom of cold weather arrives. But if you're craving a little colour, try brightening up your outfit with this soft-textured striped motif sweater. To keep the focus on the cozy crewneck, pair the sweater with black cigarette-cut denim.
Buy it here: Club Monaco, $235
6. Wilfred Lorin Sweater
Made with textured alpaca wool, this cropped sweater with an adjustable waist tie will pair perfectly with high-waisted trousers. We love this sweater in Avorio, but just in case off-white isn't your thing, it also comes in six other seasonal shades.
Buy it here: Aritzia, $128

Instantly elevate the look of vintage-cut jeans with this pink knit number. Because of its open knit and embroidered details, heavy accessorizing won't be necessary. This sweater really speaks for itself.

8. J.O.A. Houndstooth Sweater
Trendy meets sophistication with this houndstooth-patterned sweater. Sure, the houndstooth can make any outfit pop, but the ribbed edges of this number really scream high-end fashion.

Everybody has that one comfy sweater they keep at their work desk. In case you're looking for a replacement, this colourful cardigan is it. Made with a slightly oversized silhouette and cinched sleeves, we promise you'll never want to take this stylish topper off.
