Mostly A’s: Updated Classic

Classic and classy, that’s you! You love the simple things about fall, but you also like to keep things different by trying new trends when you can. Your perfect sweater is simple with some chic, modern updates. Try a classic silhouette in an unexpected color, like a bright, off-the-shoulder knit sweater. We love these bold yellow and red choices at ASOS and H&M.


Mostly B’s: Retro

Your bright, bubbly personality demands an eye-catching sweater to go with it. A fun pattern or extra detailing can turn a shabby sweater into a stunning one. Go big or go home with these retro sweaters that will keep you happy during the chilly, grey fall months. Try a short sleeve sweater with a vintage pattern or one with a sassy slogan, both from ModCloth.


Mostly C’s: Big and Cozy

As the chilly weather sets in, there’s nothing you’d enjoy more than a big blanket to curl up in after a long day, and we can’t say we disagree. Fortunately, with the perfect oversized sweater, you can take that feeling with you wherever you go, all day long. These sweaters from Aerie and ASOS will keep you warm and cozy — at least until your next cup of hot cocoa.


Mostly D’s: Unexpected Print

You’re ready for anything and always willing to try something new, so why not try a new style of sweater, too? Your style is bold with lots of personality, so your ideal sweater stands out from the neutral, cable-knit pack. Consider something with embellished sleeves or a huge, all-over pattern, both from Wildfox.
