The R29 Guide To The Best Fall Sweaters

It's about that time: You're this close to pulling all those sweaters out from the bin under your bed to take inventory. You'll find your favorite cashmere (though it's probably pilling by now); that printed one you swore you'd wear all the time, but only wore once; and the really cute one you bought even though you knew it was going to be itchy. But this is the year you get smart about your sweaters and invest in ones that are on-trend, long-lasting, and yes, comfortable, too.
The only thing worse than sweaters that are itchy? Ones piling up that you never, ever wear — they're bulky, hard to store, and take up a lot of valuable closet space. So we've rounded up the staple sweaters you should own already and ones to replace those that you don't wear. Go through what you've got, sell (or donate) the ones that never quite made the cut, and fill the gaps with some of the solid picks ahead. From turtlenecks to cardigans, your sweater wardrobe will be in its best shape ever this season.
