Preppy Sweaters Style Guide

When the temperatures drop, sweaters are the first thing on our minds. We love sweaters because they are the perfect transitional piece for autumn and winter. 


On early fall days, you can layer a lightweight cardigan over your favorite dress or go-to denim and t-shirt combo. As the days get chillier, chunky cable knits and pullovers will become your best friend. And when full-blown winter weather strikes, you can keep warm with cozy sweaters layered beneath your coats and jackets.


From classic knit sweaters to trendy ponchos and other styles, discover your favorite new preppy sweater, women's styling tips for autumn and winter, the latest seasonal trends, and more in this preppy sweaters style guide.

Scarlett Camo Sweater

Slip into sweater weather with this super cute v-neck sweater, which features a delicate white and gray camo print. We adore camo for autumn, and the soft, neutral color scheme makes this classic print even more wearable. This sweater is light enough to be worn on an early fall day, but also looks amazing layered under a jacket for winter.

There is absolutely no such thing as too much buffalo check for autumn and winter, especially when it comes in styles as cute as this poncho sweater. The black and white color scheme is super timeless and chic! Style it with black or dark wash denim, a tucked-in black cami top, and black boots for an effortless and sophisticated cold weather look.
