Men's Sweater Trends: Top 5 Fall & Winter Looks


These are not your father's sweaters. Style has moved on and made the men’s sweater both functional and fashionable. Say goodbye to heavyweight knits and over-zealous patterns, and welcome in new streamlined, silhouettes and handsome details. Here are our top five sweater picks to have you looking your best this fall and winter.

The Sweater Jacket

Your old hoodie had a good run. Now it's time to trade up for the smart polish of a full-zip sweater jacket. With its mock collar and banded hem, you'll get the ease of a hoodie with a more polished perspective. Subtle cable knit detailing adds contrast against the smooth knit body, and on-seam hand warmer pockets boost your warmth without added bulk.

Focus On:
Lining. Faux Sherpa fleece adds a rustic element to the sweater jacket while affording you a toasty warm feel.

The Quarter-Zip Sweater

Go anywhere and do anything in the versatile quarter-zip sweater. The addition of a ribbed neck with partial zipper gives this sweater a sporty edge. Lightweight knit fabric balances the relaxed cut, allowing you to layer in comfort and maintain a streamlined frame.

Focus On:
Pattern. The quarter-zip sweater's modern fit makes a perfect canvas for striped and argyle patterns without looking dated or too preppy.

The Cardigan Sweater

We promise – the cardigan sweater goes way beyond college. Akin to the sweater jacket, the zip or button cardigan can top both tees and button-front shirts. A classic V-neck is ideal for work and showing off a tie, while a modern shawl collar updates your casual game in a noticeable way.

Focus On:
The knit. Go with smooth texture to keep this sweater from overtaking the shirt beneath it.

The Sweater Vest

Hear us out on this one. A sweater vest is a smart casual essential you'll thank us for later. Crafted in lightweight knit and offering a more fitted cut, the vest makes any button-down look upscale whether worn with jeans or trousers. Add a tie, and you can even forego the suit jacket.

Focus On:
Color. Black and shades of gray match most anything and add a formal air to your look.

The Pullover

Crew neck or V-neck, there's no denying the versatile and effortless style of a classic pullover sweater. Today's knits are made for a leaner presentation, offering clean, straight lines and minimalist detailing. Forego bulky cable knits in favor of ribbed and smooth designs. But feel free to color up – warm tones and cool hues can enhance any outfit.

Focus On:
The cut. A fitted cut differentiates the pullover from a sweatshirt and ensures it looks trim when worn under a jacket.
