The best thing about Fall to me is sweaters! Sweaters don’t just have to be for warmth; they can also be very fashionable. I did a little online shopping and I found a few stores like Lane Bryant, Avenue and Old Navy, that had a wide selection of options in styles, colors and prices. Below are some selections that I think will work for any body type and aren’t too trendy so these could last you awhile.
These can be worn as an outerwear piece or in the dead of winter, as a layering piece. Since this sweater is black, adding a pop of color underneath would be great. If you want to dress it up, I would suggest wearing a sequined top underneath the sweater. I would pair this sweater with a slim bottom such as leggings or a long pencil skirt.

Colorblocking is a huge trend we have seen over the past few seasons and it'd look great for fall and winter too. Colorblocking sweaters can add just the right amount of color and trendiness without being over the top. If sequins, stripes, and layering aren’t for you, colorblocking may have the same affect on your overall look.

Animal print has became a neutral classic. With this sweater, you don’t have to sacrifice style for warmth. I would so love this sweater with dark denim or black slacks.

Figure Flattering Sweaters
This is a really cute long sweater; there are exposed seams which add a funky look. What makes the sweater so flattering is on the back, there is a middle exposed seam and a seam on both sides of the sweater which acts as a princess seaming and makes the sweater figure flattering. This sweater is going on my wishlist of something I want to buy this fall!

Turtlenecks don’t always work for plus size women but the look can be achieved with a cowl neck sweater. This particular cowl neck is flattering because it is longer than traditional ones. Why is this important? The longer neck opens up the face more and is more flattering and you also won't feel like you are suffocating.

Open Front Cardigan
Open front cardigans are flattering because they create two lines down the torso which is slimming. The sweaters are also easy to wear so if you get hot easily you won’t have to bother with buttons or pulling the sweater over your head. This is another sweater that would look great with a slimmer bottom such as leggings or skinny jeans and paired with tall boots.
