Often, when it’s cold, rainy, snowy, or just generally bleh out, we tend to convince ourselves that we just need to put together something functional that’ll keep us warm enough throughout the day. Moreover, fashion often takes a backseat on these days.
But, I’m a firm believer that functional and fashionable are definitely not mutually exclusive! In fact, there are many ways to make your cold-weather wardrobe more fun–one of which is by wearing a fun printed sweater!
Cozy, warm, and surprisingly easy to wear, these chic sweaters are sure to add a dash of style and whimsy to every ensemble–even on the dreariest of fall/winter days.
Here, I decided to pick out six of my favorite printed-sweaters on the web right now. They’re sure to keep you feeling cheerful and fashionably inspired until Spring rolls around.

Halogen x Atlantic Pacific Red-and-Pale-Pink Polka-Dot Sweater
For those days when the weather is gloomy and gray, you need a bright and punchy sweater to make your whole outfit pop! That’s where this fun pale-pink-and-red polka-dot number, from the Halogen x Atlantic Pacific collection, comes in.
For an upbeat and feminine look inspired by Blair Eadie (the blogger behind Atlantic Pacific) herself, style the sweater with a tie-neck blouse underneath, as well as a black skater skirt.
Add opaque tights in a color of your choosing (bonus points for brights!), and finish with some cute rain boots.
You can never go wrong with a striped sweater, and that’s especially true when those stripes are rainbow! What’s more, this sweater looks so cozy and warm, I just want to wrap myself in it all Fall/Winter long!
Since there’s a lot of color in this piece, you don’t need to do much to make it stand out. Simply style it with your favorite pair of jeans — I like the idea of wearing it with ’70s-inspired flares — and a pair of heeled riding boots for some added height.
And voilà! An easy, instantly chic outfit you can throw on on days when you’re running late to class (again).
Floral-Print Balloon-Sleeve Sweater
When I first saw this quirky floral sweater, its pattern reminded me of something you might see on someone’s grandma’s old couch. And, as a person who loves vintage things, I mean that in the best way possible!
To up the retro factor, try wearing the sweater with a pleated, solid-colored midi skirt and a pair of fashion-forward white loafers to add a dash of youthfulness to the ensemble. Complete the look by adding a beret and an oversized wool coat.
Line & Dot Black and Neon-Pink Civet-Print Sweater
It’s no secret that animal prints have been hugely trendy for the past while. And, while I love a good leopard-print item as much as the next girl, sometimes, it’s nice to switch things up as well!
So, why not up the ante with a black-and-neon-pink civet-print sweater?!
This number already has an edgy vibe going for it. Therefore, I’d recommend pairing it with faux-leather pants, chunky sneakers, and a statement-making silver or yellow-gold chain necklace. If you’re feeling extra bold, try adding a swipe of colorful eyeliner to your makeup look as well!
Red-and-Gray Ruffled Argyle Sweater
If your style is preppy and feminine, you’re sure to love this classic-with-a-twist ruffled argyle-print turtleneck sweater. The sweater’s modern silhouette ensures that it doesn’t look stuffy. Furthermore, its classic red-and-gray color scheme makes it wearable with a wide variety of other colors.
I really like the idea of wearing this sweater in a put-together and preppy way by styling it with a button-front denim skirt and a black blazer, along with brown or black (faux) leather or suede knee-high boots.
