These days it’s all about celebrating the little things in life – so let’s give it up for my favorite season of all, Sweater Season! Now, out here in California, the weather has her own idea of what fall looks like. With cold mornings to very high afternoon temperatures; our Autumn weather tends to be a bit manic, making my go-to knit something I can throw on and off with ease in the form of a cardigan or sweater vest. Layered over anything from jeans and a t-shirt to a transitional sundress, either of these pieces allows me to enjoy the look of “fall”, despite our Indian Summer weather.
Now if you live outside of California, and the crisp air has you craving outfit ideas beyond cardigans, sweater vests, and sandals, pour yourself another cup of jo and cozy up because we’ve got you covered. From California to Alaska – coast to coast, welcome to an all-new Stylish Monday Link-Up Party, featuring sweater outfit ideas from around the globe!

8 More Fall Outfit Ideas To Love
Next up, my stylish blogger sisters weigh in on what they love about sweater season in their part of the world.
Andrea Schwartz of Pearls and Pantsuits (HERE)
“Ponchos are such a fun and easy way to add a light layer to an outfit. This plaid one has been one of my wardrobe staples for years. I love the plaid pattern and autumnal colors. I can’t wait to pull it out each fall!”

“I found this cute fox sweater at JCPenney a few years ago and I have never shared it on my blog before. I love the fun geometric graphic of the fox. Foxes are my favorite animal so I added my little rose gold fox necklace, too. This sweater is perfect for the beginning of sweater weather because it is a lighter weight knit and has 3/4 sleeves. I can even comfortably pair this sweater with shorts for a cute transitional look”
Nina Bandoni of Sharing a Journey Blog | (HERE)
“Cozy sweaters and cardigans make styling fall outfits so much fun.”
Julie Augustyn of Fashion Trends and Friends (HERE)
“Sweater season in Illinois lasts from potentially September through March and sometimes into April. (Last year, we got snow on Halloween!). If you did the math, that’s half a year at the least and possibly a full seven months. Therefore, this midwest girl loves her sweaters of all colors, styles, and of course fun, unique, and embellished sweaters are even better in my book! I first saw this sweater on IG and loved how it was styled plus the fact that it says Rock and Love. Hope you take a minute to read my blog and see all the ways it can be worn and styled both in warmer climates as well as when it gets colder.”
Ada Furxhi of Elegance and Mommyhood (HERE)
“A color-blocked pink and fuchsia sweater is perfect for October particularly, because Pink raises awareness for Breast Cancer Month. This happy, bright piece is a new find from Target as are those new leopard pants (wish I had sized down in them, they have a hidden elastic band). Throw in a pumpkin, and I am ready for Fall with all of my sweaters!”
Nancy Baten of Nancy’s Fashion Style (HERE)
“I love sweaters because I am always cold. The thicker the better! But I don’t like cowls, they don’t look good on me. Which is a pity because they are so much warmer than a v-neck. Ah well, the things you suffer for the sake of fashion!”
Emma Peach of Style Splash (HERE)
“I won this tunic sweater from Bonmarche in a Christmas giveaway on Instagram a couple of years ago. The length gives me the option of wearing it as a dress with thick tights and long boots as I’ve done here, or over black skinny jeans and ankle boots when it’s colder.”
Nicole Molders of High Latitude Style (HERE)
“I saw this red cashmere sweater in a consignment store. It was my size, color and the price was right. So I gave it a new home in my closet despite I already had two other red cashmere sweaters. However, they have a turtle and crew neck, respectively. Thus, a V-neck was different enough. And, for my excuse, one can never have too many neutrals, right?”
