Sweater weather. That time of the year when dressing well is even easier for authentic fashionistas. Statement designer sweaters are the best companion for your boots, muted pallete, sophisticated fabrics, and timeless trench coats with the perfect fit. According to Vogue, Marie Claire, and WhoWhatWear, the hottest trends for Fall and Winter 2022 are the 90s comeback with oversized and grunge pieces, gender-neutral tailoring (read vests, including sweater vests), comfy boho with a handmade look (read ponchos and fringe), dopamine dressing (orange, hor pink – Barbiecore-, purple, and green), and “pretty girl”. So, in this post, you’ll find the chicest and trendiest sweater dresses, pullovers, ponchos, vests, and cardigans to elevate your fashionista wardrobe. I also added some classic minimal chic knitwear because we have our moods.
Designer Pullover Sweaters
Modern Black Cutout Pullover Sweater
Designer: Sacai | 100% Wool | Sizes: XS-XL
Minimalist fashion shines in the details. It’s the case of this minimal chic wool sweater that gains an elevated status thanks to the cutout detail.
Nanna Wool-Blend Oversized Turtleneck Sweater
Designer: Altuzarra | Wool Blend | Sizes: XS-XL
Remember when I mentioned that boho-chic with an artisanal handmade look was a big trend? Altuzarra properly named this oversized turtleneck pullover Nanna, because it really looks like a very talented and sophisticated grandma made it. Finally, the fringes and the moody color palette complete the mesmerizing look.
Fringed Metallic-Knit Top
Designer: Bottega Veneta | Sizes: XS-L
Valentino started with the metallic knit trend last year (Zendaya wore it) and now it’s a thing.
Bottega made their version with this mesmerizing fringed sweater. Not for the shy!
Black Ribbed Wool Turtleneck Sweater
Designer: Moncler | Wool | Sizes: XXS-XXL
Moncler sweaters are recognizable from afar. First because of the iconic logo, but also for the expensive look and always modern design.
This black turtleneck is all of that and more! It looks luxuriously rich and the patch pocket with the signature Moncler nylon adds a stylish final touch.
S by S 3D Stripes Asymmetric Wool Pullover
Designer: Stella McCartney | Pure Virgin Wool | Sizes: 34-50
Here is Stella McCartney’s take on the dopamine dressing trend for Fall and Winter 22. She took inspiration from the legendary American artist Frank Stella’s V series to design this very coveted collection.
The asymmetrical sweater is made in Italy out of pure virgin wool knit. It’s as warm and soft as it is a fashion statement.
Tubular cutout merino wool turtleneck sweater
Designer: JW Anderson | 100% Merino Wool | Sizes: 2-10
If you’re not joking about your modern fashionista side, you’re probably a JW Anderson fan.
And this heavy-weight tubular wool sweater is THE showstopper piece recommended only for unapologetically authentic men or women.
Dioralps Cashmere and Wool Stand Collar Pullover
Designer: Dior | Cashmere and Wool Blend | Sizes: 34-42
The Dioralps collection is a vintage trip to the most exclusive ski resorts on the planet. But you can wear it everywhere.
Designer Cardigan Sweaters
Oversized intarsia cashmere cardigan
Designer: Bottega Veneta | 98% Wool | Sizes: XS-XL
Every year Bottega comes up with the desired piece of the season that all fast fashions will poorly copy after natural early adopters wore it.
Last year they gave us the iconic lug soles boots and this year all bets are on this plush cardigan with the logo alphabet.
If you’re into the dopamine dressing trend, look at the green alphabet pullover!
