This Comfy-Chic Sweater Trend Is the Perfect Thing to Wrap Yourself Up in This Fall and Winter
Say hello (and shop) Pinterest’s 2019 fall sweater trend of choice.
Sweater weather has officially arrived, and not a minute too soon, if you ask us. You’ve probably been busy swapping your summer clothes for your much-missed fall wardrobe essentials (nice to see you again, blanket scarves, chunky pullovers, and ankle booties!), and maybe even treating your closet to some fresh, new fall pieces that’ll last you through the depths of winter.
Not sure which fall trends are actually worth the hype? If you’re looking for a crazy-cozy, yet stylish addition to your fall look, you need to get acquainted with baggy cardigans—the effortlessly cool knitwear piece that’s seriously trending on Pinterest right now. According to Pinterest’s Fall 2019 data, searches for “baggy cardigans” have grown 133 percent since last year, placing them at the top of the pack for the layer of the season.
Think of the baggy cardigan as the casual, slouchy, open-front cousin of the ever-popular oversized sweater. But just because it’s baggy doesn’t mean it isn’t flattering. This piece is the cozy cameleon of fall style: Wear it at home over loungewear, throw it over a T-shirt and jeans for brunch, cocoon it around a turtleneck and skinny jeans and wrap a belt around it for work—it’s yours to experiment with.
We also love the baggy cardigan for the autumn’s notoriously indecisive weather—when it’s not quite cold enough for a jacket, but you still want an extra warm layer, just in case. Ready to rock a slouchy sweater of your own? Here are a few baggy cardigans to help you get the look.
