5. Fringed

Our friends at Net-a-Porter have proclaimed that “fringing has become one of the biggest trends for Fall-Winter ’20.”  Their styling tip? The key is to keep the rest of your look pared back – the fringe should take center stage. Here are some of the best fringed designer sweaters this season.

6. Embroidered & Embellished

One of the top sweater trends this season can be described as “Grandma chic.” Ladylike, refined, and tastefully embellished, what we love about this trend is that it’s a “throw and go” vibe that feels right for the busy lives we’re all leading. No necklace (or even a bracelet) needed – these beauties are already accessorized.

Whether it takes the form of floral embroidery or other embellishments, style these knits with minimalist street-ready leather or denim, and you’ll be totally on-point as the temperatures drop.

7. Cardigans

Many of the best designer sweaters this season are cardigans – it’s one of the key trends of fall-winter 2020-21. Why? Well, as PopSugar notes, “a longer cardigan that could possibly double as a dress feels like a close second to the loungewear” that’s been the uniform of the Great Lockdown for many of us.
