Find The Fall Sweater Trend That's Perfect For You, Because It's Time To Trade In Those Turtlenecks

The most wonderful time of the year is finally here. No, I'm not talking snowflakes and Christmas trees, I'm talking about the unofficial period deemed Sweater Season. With the arrival of Sweater Season, we finally have an excuse to be comfortable and warm when we go out without being hardcore judged for it. Ever want to leave the house in your Snuggie? Well, over-sized plush silhouettes are the socially acceptable form of doing so. All it takes to compose a pulled together look is a luxe pullover, dark denim, and some awesome leather boots.

If you're like me, you haven't updated your core sweater collection in a very long time. Why mess with a classic right? But the truth is, there's always room for newness, and there is nothing more fun than updating your wardrobe per the seasons. There are tons of cool, unique takes on classic trends that feel fresh for 2014, so if you're stuck on a particular old-school trend there's no need to completely abandon it. Embellishments, collars, color-blocking, and multi-textures are all funky ways of upgrading a boring sweater to one that can let your individuality shine. Here are four easy ways to transition your sweater styles and upgrade a boring closet for the most comfortable time of the year.
