It’s officially that time of year: We've reached peak laziness. Sure, we started off fall strong, enthusiastic for all things layers and ankle boots, but now all we want is to wrap ourselves up in something soft and cuddly—and hibernate.
Along with the days getting shorter, colder, and generally gloomier, our desire to forego elaborate outfits and just focus on the cozy basics dramatically increases. Sure, we still want to look presentable, but we’re more likely to swap out a tailored pantsuit or silky slip dress for some variation of a giant sweater and roomy boyfriend jeans, making it our uniform for the next few months until we see the first signs of spring.
While this particular look sounds pretty ideal on chilly mornings and gray days spent inside the office ordering Seamless for lunch, it can get pretty repetitive after a while—and, as such, pretty boring. To avoid the fashion doldrums, we rounded up 18 sweaters that'll breathe some life into your lazy girl fall wardrobe, so you can be cozy while still looking cute. Graphic prints, embellishments, and quirky, off-kilter silhouettes amp up these comfy staples, so you can keep things interesting.
So go ahead, be the most (effortlessly) cool you can be. To help with that, check out our top picks of the season, below.
