Fall is one of my favorite seasons. I tend to live vicariously through my friends and family who live in other parts of the country where the weather has gotten cooler and the leaves have started changing colors. Autumn-like weather doesn’t typically hit California until at least November, it’s still in the 90s! When it comes to fall fashion, I love incorporating crisp cool shades such as brown which varies in color – from camel to taupe, caramel, and mocha to name a few. Over the last few weeks, I’ve fallen in love with quite a few gorgeous brown sweaters that I just had to have. I settled on two since I already have quite a few in my closet. I still have a few more on my list!

If you’re searching for the perfect brown sweater for fall and winter, you’re in luck! Today, I’m excited to share 12 gorgeous brown sweaters you’ll love and I also shared tips on how you can style them for nearly every occasion. They’re ideal for the office, dinner, and drinks after work, date night, brunch, church, and more! 

How To Style Brown Sweaters

One of the many great things about brown sweaters is how easy they are to style! They can be dressed up or down easily and effortlessly. Brown sweaters are ideal for fall and winter, in fact, some are appropriate for spring as well. The sweaters I bought are so versatile, it’s incredible. I can’t wait to wear them with my faux leather pants, denim mini skirts, and my favorite skinny jeans. With pleated midi skirts, straight-leg jeans, flared denim, and cargo pants as hot as ever now is a great time to invest in a gorgeous sweater that you can pair with time and time again! There are so many options. 

This color is so beautiful, classic, and versatile, every woman needs a brown sweater or two for fall, winter, and spring!
