Trends for fall are often relatively predictable, but only your grandma saw the sweater sets craze coming. (Leave it to our grandparents to know a good thing when they see it.) And while you might assume that the trend is a designated springtime look, some of the best sweater sets are are actually ideal for fall. These matching pieces give you just the right amount of coziness during transitional weather—and are high-key cute. Of course, sweater sets today aren’t quite the same as the looks your granny loves, but the 2020 styles have all the nostalgia and vintage vibes you could ever want.
Think sleek tanks and cropped cardigans in colors perfect for the season. You can wear them with everything from your favorite high-waisted jeans to a plaid mini skirt—and trust me, you’ll want to. Sweater sets are the perfect transitional look for fall and beyond. For days when the weather isn’t quite chilly enough to warrant a jacket, just throw on a sweater set and you’re good to go. And when the weather does get a bit frigid? Sweater sets are still great for layering. You can toss a cute puffer coat or trench over the set and voila! You’re warm and snug—and have a cute look to show off when you take off your coat.
The same goes on the opposite end of the spectrum, too. If it’s too hot outside, simply take off the cardigan and wear the matching top by itself. Wrap the cardi around your waist or throw it over your shoulders. These pieces might be ideal for fall, but they really do work in any season—and they deserve a place in your wardrobe.
So do yourself a favor and snag one of the cute sweater sets we’ve rounded up below. From options in fall-ready hues to sets that will work transition seamlessly from fall and winter to spring and summer, you’re sure to find a new addition to your closet. Stay cozy!
