As an avid knitter and clothing designer I like to keep my finger on the pulse of what’s happening in sweater design and trends. This season there is definitely a change in sweater trends.

Color 
Look for sweaters that are more drab in color. There will be a lot of neutral colored sweaters this season, things that match a lot of outfits. This may be a reflection of the economy in a couple of ways as it makes the sweater versatile enough to wear often and the bland colors reflect the economic depression. But if you want to be in style this season you’ll want to purchase a couple neutral colored sweaters. The only exception is the color purple, it’s so hot you need to have at least one purple sweater in your wardrobe.

Neck Line
The neck line for sweaters has changed dramatically from the standard crew or V-neck, this season the neck line is more elaborate and embellished. Look for deep cowl necks, ruffles, jewel necklines and asymmetrical turtlenecks. The color isn’t the shine through point this season but the cut of the neckline definitely is.

Length
The length of sweaters is just like the length of skirt hems, it’s always changing and can either date you or make you look trendy and cutting edge. This season the long sweater is still in style, the cropped sweater is definitely out. Look for asymmetrical hemmed sweaters with longer fronts so the sweater can double as a wrap on those chilly days.

In summary, the look for sweaters this season is neutral, warm, and full of interesting construction details.
