You know that show called My Strange Addiction, where people are addicted to, well, strange things? Is an addiction to cute plus-size fall sweaters weird enough to qualify for the show? Because I feel like my wishlist is truly spiraling out of control. I live in Los Angeles, where fall weather only kind of exists, so fall fashion is my only way to get a firm grasp on the chilly season.

My favorite part of autumnal wear? Fall! Freaking! Sweaters! I’m obsessed. I can’t get enough. It’s still 90 degrees in LA, and all I can do is stare at fuzzy and cozy sweaters I won’t get to wear for another month (outside of my air-conditioned apartment, that is). Much to the chagrin of my credit card company, my closet is slowly filling up with fall goodies. Can’t stop, won’t stop.

When I was a teen, I was always obsessed with those cute sweaters I’d see in Urban Outfitters. Only occasionally did they fit me correctly and as I got older it got even harder. For the longest time, plus sizes weren’t available in the types of sweaters I wanted to wear. But brands have been catching on in the last few years and now there are a plethora of adorable fall sweaters in plus sizes. I mean, what’s the point of fashion if we can’t all enjoy it and wear styles we love?! Size-inclusivity matters and this shopping guide (and half of my fall wardrobe) couldn’t exist without it.

Because my budget will not allow me to buy every sweater my heart desires (One day, though! Let’s manifest this sweater dream!), I am sharing my picks with you below. These plus-size fall sweaters are seriously all so cute. I’m talking peak coziness, the perfect fall hues and so many different styles from which to choose.

Feel free to just buy them all so that I am no longer tempted. My bank account will thank you. (Although, I’ll be honest: I already bought two of the sweaters on this list. Oops.)
