If 2020 showed us anything, it’s that the ’80s are back in a major way. Looking at the structured shoulders, neon accessories, and color-block pieces that came sashaying into our favorite stores, though, I’m not one bit upset about it, and neither are the legions of celebrities like Hilary Duff, are taking the trend for a spin. One of the decade’s trends everyone is particularly excited for? Color-block sweaters.
That crisp fall breeze will be here before you know it, and you’ll want to have some lightweight knits on hand to aid in your most stylish layering looks. It’s only going to get colder, so before you know it, you’ll be living in these sweaters and your chunkier knits. In other words, it’s probably smart to start dabbling now just to determine your favorites—you know, in addition to keeping warm.
I love a good chunky cable-knit sweater and creamy cashmere pullover, but in a season where we tend to gravitate toward neutral basics, THIS color-block sweater is a fresh way to give those fall ensembles a burst of energy. Graphic without getting too busy, it will quickly give you an eye-catching outfit, not to mention you can wear it with most of the basics you already own.
Style a color-block sweater with a simple pair of your favorite jeans and ankle boots or leather jeans and heels. Whether you dress this sweater up or down, it will be the perfect addition to your knitwear collection.
