When Fall arrives, there’s a lot to look forward to. The changing of the season brings beautiful colors, and cooler temperatures, but more importantly, it means we can break out the knitwear that’s been locked away all summer. So without further ado, let’s talk knitwear brands.
Once September rolls around (August, if you are living in Britain), we all start ordering a pumpkin spice latte instead of iced coffee. That’s when we also take sweaters, cardigans, and coats out of the closet to wrap up on those not-so-warm days.
I admit it – I like to indulge when it comes to layering. I love the cozy vibe, so, therefore, I love talking about it. But where can we find the best quality knitwear brand? And do you even have time for deep research? Probably not, and that’s why you’re here because the hard work has been done for you.
You can’t go wrong with the creamy white V-neck sweater, but there’s also this pretty yellow knitted vest. You probably don’t want to spend thousands of dollars, but you also refrain from fast fashion. From cool knitwear brands, you already know, to ones you might be hearing for the first time. From classic neutral suggestions to go-hard-or-go-home kinds of pieces, I believe this list of knitwear brands below has covered every taste, budget, occasion, and style.
Keep calm and scroll down.
13 BEST KNITWEAR BRANDS TO LAYER UP WITH THIS FALL:
1. Eileen Fisher
Like many others, Eileen Fisher strives to create sustainably sourced and made-to-last fashion pieces. Unlike many others, the brand has its own Responsible by Design standard which means the team behind it makes an effort not only towards versatility but towards fair trade, environmental-friendly practices, and actual community improvement.
As well as being more of a luxury sweater brand, their knitwear selection offers traditional V-cut sweaters and tops, in traditional colors, so you can complete your capsule wardrobe in the most stylish yet elegant manner. I would pair the Peruvian Organic Cotton Crimp V-Neck Top with high-waisted jeans and a small bag. Also, get The Hooded Cardigan in white. You won’t regret it!
NAADAM is dedicated to transparency, sustainability, ethical practices, and everything else we like, love, adore, and profess over here. They even have a well-structured plan with goals they hope to achieve by 2025! In particular, the mint Cashmere Polo Cardigan (made of 100% Mongolian cashmere) just exudes big fashion energy with its spread collar, cinched cuffs, and five front button closures. Oh, the Textured Cashmere Throw Cardigan is just as lovely. Layer a camel coat over it and match it with vegan pants for a day in the office. Just don’t forget to take a look at the softness scale before heading to checkout.

3. AMOUR VERT
If you are looking for affordable knitwear brands instead of carefully curating your TikTok feed, meet Amour Vert. What to expect? A fabulous fit, luxurious warmth, and amazingly wearable styles are the exact words used to describe it. If you are a traditionalist, try the Caroline Organic Cotton Cardigan in black or blue. In case you like the *extra* feeling, go for the Liza Organic Cotton Sweater. Back to TikTok, it doesn’t matter if you are dancing or shaking your head in disbelief at new conspiracy theories, everyone will love your look. Everyone.
Continuing my list with the best knitwear brands, there’s no way to skip Everlane. If this is your first time visiting STYLE BY SAVINA, let me explain. In case you are already on your own journey to a more sustainable life, with Everlane you know exactly where your money goes without having to drop as much $$$ as Cardi B does for her daughter’s birthday. And although we usually don’t think of knitwear until fall, The Cotton Summer Sweater Tank will just click with a pair of platform sandals. Meanwhile, I dare you to find a better piece for that totally-unexpected-but-actually-expected party than The Crochet Knit Cami in lemon. I’ll be waiting!
Open sesame! Sorry, I meant open Sézane. I don’t know how many french knitwear brands there are, but this one is worth checking out. Meeting somewhere in the middle of French vintage chic and contemporary romance, Sézane believes quality is an investment in the future. Available in every size from XXS to XXXL, the Gaspard Jumper with round neckline and pearl-like buttons, is the IRL epitome of perfect style. You may never see me wearing this emerald green, but it’s super hot right now, so why not? The ecru Betty Cardigan is another topic of discussion though. You’ll fall in love quicker than Pamela Anderson did with Tommy Lee back in the 90s.
You may not know all knitwear brands UK has to offer. However, Boden deserves your attention. They have always stood against fast fashion and its negative carbon footprint on Mother Earth, so it’s only logical for them to talk about the best materials and practices. If your calendar includes tons of business lunches, dinners, afternoon teas, etc, then put on the Frill Shoulder Cotton Cardigan with dark jeans and hoop earrings. Keeping in mind you are not afraid of colors and patterns, opt for the Embroidered Pop Collar Sweater. There’s something very nostalgic yet stylish about it.

Simplicity, function, and everyday beauty are what ARKET is all about. They are already doing tremendous work with 90% sustainable materials and 18% recycled ones. The brand is focused on making all its non-commercial usage completely reusable and recyclable by 2025 and it’s only a matter of time. As for the wide range of versatile knitwear, my eyes stopped on the organic Striped Cotton Jumper and its pretty V-neck wide collar. Yeah, I know it’s too classic, but it’s good as hell. Lizzo has stated it in one of her viral songs, so there you go. Facts.
8. & Other Stories
No matter how many stories I tell through these articles, in the end, I always circle back to & Other Stories. Is it one of the most famous knitwear brands in minimalist fashion circles? Yes, it is. The fashion house pays attention to sustainability, recycling, product care, inclusion, and diversity – all aspects the fashion industry should take into consideration. Moving from everyday classic sweaters to delicate (read: sexy) cardigans, their knits will make you love autumn even if you refuse to leave the beach till late September. I’m just obsessed with the Collared Bouclé Knit Cardigan and the Bouclé Knit Mini Skirt.
From 100% cashmere to organic cotton, COS’ knitwear selection could convince you that ethical knitwear brands don’t leave you wondering where your hard-earned salary went. You’ll know that every penny was well spent. The sleeveless design of their black mid-length Knitted Midi Dress brings to mind at least 25 different ways to style it. There’s also a lot of talk going on about vests, so if you like that fashion POV, the bright pink Regular-Fit Knitted Vest is here to make any outfit better. I see it, I like it, I want it, I got it. Ariana Grande has it all figured out.
10. COUNTRY ROAD
When you find top knitwear brands like Country Road, you just want to tell everyone about them. Or maybe you’re the kind of person who likes to keep the best for yourself? Hey, no judgment here! The Australian fashion house delivers soft, premium wool blends in every form of autumn perfection you can think of. Offered in 4 different minimalistic shades, the Boucle Cardigan is my go-to choice. Simply because it will go hand in hand with dark denim, a pair of chunky boots, and a small bag to fit all your everyday essentials. Now you’re ready to actually hit the country road. All you need to do now is put on some Carrie Underwood while dramatically staring out of the window, and you’re set.

11. & DAUGHTER
When it comes to the top 10 sweater brands in the world there’s a high chance that & Daughter would make the cut. Made of merino wool and cashmere-blend wrap cardigan, their pieces are a pricey investment indeed, but one that promises to stand the test of time and serve you through limitless style combinations on a silver platter. There’s no way we can’t mention the Arklow Cardigan with this thick, cozy feeling, similar to the warmest hug you’ve ever been given. Grab a darker brown bag, put on white pants, and just smile for the camera.
THAKOON is made for those who believe good fashion shouldn’t equal fast fashion by definition. The best way to define it all is using the Cropped Ribbed Turtleneck Sweater, which I love. With a short hem, roll-neck collar, and cropped ribbed turtleneck, this suggestion is like listening to Olivia Rodrigo’s ‘drivers license’ – you fall deep in the story, you are the main character and albeit moody, you feel super warm. Please, match it with a pair of sweatpants and a coat. Tag me in your photos, so I can see how you’re styling it.
13. NAVY GREY
Similar to many successful companies, Navy Grey began with a desire. The brand’s founder tried to find a sweater that both looked and felt good. So when she failed, she knew she had to create it. Every piece is made from 100% natural, high-quality fibers, even certified by my favorite Responsible Wool Standard (read more on that over here) so the final result includes understated timeless designs. Allow yourself to be amazed by the navy Classic Cardigan or the ecru Hand Me Down jumper.
Whatever you go with in the end, be it sweaters or cardigans, full wrap, or open loose, you’re bound to find something you like in this list. These are some of the great knitwear brands in Europe and other places in the world. DM me on Instagram to let me know your favorites.
