Patterned Sweaters: Checks and Balances

Patterned Sweaters

Thinking about what to buy to update your fall wardrobe? All it takes is a single sweater! Just make sure it’s not too basic – checks and other patterns will add a touch of thoughtful sophistication to your look. And considering Chanel just acquired Barrie knitwear, there’s no better time to rock off a sweater than now. You don’t need to blow your whole budget, though – Zara has frugal options that would rival the knitwear of any luxe designer!

J.W. Anderson Check Sweater: Graphic sweaters like these are tasteful enough for the office and chic enough for after hours fun. On Moda Operandi for $730.

Miu Miu Checked Wool-Blend Sweater: Wear cropped, boxy sweaters like this with skinny jeans or skirts (midi length, please!). Too much heft would overwhelm the silhouette. On NET-A-PORTER for $945.

Marc by Marc Jacobs Aimee Trompe L’Oeil Plaid Merino Wool Sweater: Belt thinner, more fitted sweaters and add a flared skirt (mini or midi – pick your poison). On NET-A-PORTER for $280.

Chinti and Parker Patternity Aran Chunky-Knit Merino Wool Sweater: Not ready to leave behind graphic black and white? Me neither! On NET-A-PORTER for $630.

Theory Juneau Textured Jacquard-Knit Sweater: We saw Chanel appropriate tartans into their Pre-Fall 2013 collection, and now other designers are taking on the Scottish lowlands’ other traditional pattern – houndstooth. On NET-A-PORTER for $225.

Marni Edition Yellow Checkered Knit Sweater: Between the check pattern and raised stitching, this sweater offers a truly dimensional look. On Ssense for $660.
