On Trend: Zip Detailed Sweaters

Zipper details and chunky knits. Me likey.

Fall trend that I’ve been totally suckered into: zip detailed sweaters. What’s not to love? You take cozy, snuggly sweaters and add metallic detailing to them. The simplest little extra ever, but one that, for me, adds the perfect amount of edge (after all, I am nothing if not a wild child. Clearly.).

J. Crew has stocked a few of these zip sweaters for fall (I think I like the front vent one versus the asymmetrical one — what about you?), but I’m also digging Banana Republic’s longer tunic version (in case you haven’t seen their new styling by Marissa Webb, it’s kind of a whole new BR and I’m into it). I also really love the back zip twist — how comfy does this marled gray sweater look (and it’s on sale!)?

Have you stocked up on sweaters for fall yet? I’m keeping my eye out for one or two more, and a zippered sweater is definitely on my list!

    I haven’t made a single sweater purchase yet, due to what seems to be the Indian summer we’re having here in KC. I’m afraid we are going to skip right past fall and head into winter, so I better get on it! I’m with you, I like the front vent sweater best :)
