Happy Thursday ladies. Knits are trending this fall… which is sort of like saying that bathing suits trend in the summer:) This fall we’re seeing some old-is-new-again shapes and lots of comfy options. Everyone is ready to get back to wearing real clothes but we want to be comfy and that’s where knits come in. The knitwear trends for fall 2021 are sweater vests, cropped sweaters, oversized sweaters, lots of cables, and polo sweaters.
Today I’m joining the gals from our Over 50 Style Team to share our thoughts on knitwear this fall.
Oversized sweaters are super popular for fall and I’m loving them. I’ve had my eye on this one for weeks…waiting for a sale and trying to decide where I could wear it. Many are ribbed, cabled, and in classic shapes on steroids. The more oversized the sweater, the thinner I like the fabric. The queen of oversized sweaters is Eileen Fisher and she has some beauties this season. This sweater hit my shopping cart today because the Tencel/organic cotton blend is perfect for my climate and it’s a rich fall color.
MORE OVERSIZED SWEATERS
Cropped sweaters are perfect for petite women. They’re at, just below or above the waist. I like mine worn over a longer shirt with the shirt showing below.
It’s a great way to break up your proportions and give a nod to your waist without tucking in or belting anything.
These work well for women who prefer a little structure in their knitwear. They’re available with or without buttons down the front placket. This polo cardigan has buttons all the way down the front. I like the way the collars frame your face and would even layer them over a collared shirt. Many of these are short and boxy, which is another popular knitwear trend for fall.
MORE POLO SWEATERS
I started spotting these early last summer. They come with or without buttons, as long as tunics, cropped to the waist, cabled, v-neck, cowl, and turtleneck. These are not the patterned sweater vests our fathers used to wear, although that look is available too. Many have a preppy, collegiate vibe, but there are more elegant options available too. This vest combines the polo, half zip, and sweater vest into one, and it’s very wearable.
