One of my favourite things about this time of year is digging out my chunky sweaters and boots. There’s something very comforting about oversized jumpers when the weather turns cold. So right on cue, for October’s Stylish Monday link up collaboration we’re featuring the sweater edit! Stylish Monday was created out of a Facebook group of international fashion and lifestyle bloggers. Every month we interpret a theme in our own unique way, to share some seasonal outfit inspiration.
I won this green zebra print sweater from Bonmarche in a giveaway on Instagram a couple of years ago. I very rarely win anything so it was a lovely surprise! 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. The last time I featured it on the blog was also with long boots and tights, although these boots are a bit longer.
This tunic jumper feels very snuggly and cosy, and worn over stretchy tights or leggings it’s incredibly comfortable. My only gripe is that I wish it had pockets…somehow they make sweaters feel even more cosy!

“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 California wardrobe staples allows me to enjoy the look of “fall”, despite our Indian Summer weather”.
“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?”
“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. “
“I love sweaters, because I am always cold. The thicker the better! But I don’t like cols, they don’t look good on me. Which is a pity because they are so much warmer then a v-neck. Ah well, the things you suffer for the sake of fashion!”
“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.”
“A colorblocked 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!”
“Cozy sweaters and cardigans make styling fall outfits so much fun.”
“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!”
