Cool is out. Cozy is in. The warmer weather of summer is coming to an end, and that means it's time to do a wardrobe overall. From putting away your rompers to bringing out your blazers, fall clothing is officially back. These 12 plus-size grandpa sweaters are going to keep your cozy despite the upcoming cold. From oversized cardigans to slouchy cable knits, the grandpa sweater is a must-have for fall.
Before you go thinking grandpa is an insult, hold up. These sweaters are everything your cozy night in or your warm dinner out by a bonfire needs.
Why favor sweaters, though? Well, the great thing about pullovers and cardigans is that there's truly very little thought involved. Whether you're sitting at home, heading to work, or going out, sweaters and cardigans are versatile — and cozy. Throw them over a tank top. Toss them on alone. Dress them up or down. No matter what, they're basically perfect.
Whether it's something about the cooler air, Pumpkin Spice Lattes, and boots, fall just calls for oversized, comfy sweaters. More specifically, autumn calls for big sweaters your darling grandparent would adore.
It's officially sweater weather, so get your grandpa on. If you're looking for your next cozy, must-have fall piece, these 12 sweaters are a great place to start your search.
