Fall must-have: A cosy sweater

It may seem obvious to gravitate toward  sweaters with the onset of cooler weather. So you'll be happy to know that hand knit–looking sweaters are all the rage this fall/winter season. My personal favourite way to wear them is oversize – I'm talking Flashdance oversize. It's such a comfortable trend, I'm sure it's going to go gangbusters in Canada because of our ultra-frigid temps. I mean, really now, why wouldn't you want to grab something that has an equal ratio of cosy to chicness. Check out these five extra-grand knit styles I'm lusting after.

Most coveted pullovers:
  • ASOS cable-knit sweater, $81.50.
  • Zara front-seam sweater, $100.
  • Aritzia Luke sweater, $125.
  • H&M camel sweater, $25.
  • Joe Fresh scoop-neck sweater, $29.
When you hit retailers in search of  your perfect sweater, keep these style tips in mind: TEXTURED – Embrace chunky sweaters: Look for cables, entwined openwork, reverse jacquard knits, and ribbed or crocheted sweaters. COLOUR – Anything really goes, an oversize cardigan in a neutral hue such as stone grey or creamy caramel looks sophisticated and chic. However a pop of colour in your sweater is very on trend. If you're after colour, look for vibrant shades such as chartreuse, hot pink, teal, cobalt, berry or red. SHAPE – Sweaters come in all shapes and sizes this season, from the oversize boyfriend-style sweater to an off-the-shoulder dancer shape to something structured and fitted. Will you buy a new sweater this season or are you going to stick with an old favourite?
