To the dismay of many and the delight of more, we've started looking towards our fall wardrobes. Sure, summer's still here, but you know the saying: fail to prepare, prepare to fail. That means that you should probably be working on your fall fits already, but don't worry if you haven't — we've rounded up some of the best sweaters to nudge you in the right direction.

Knitwear presents a range of possibilities when it comes to styling as well as being a very useful part of the fall wardrobe. Obviously, the best sweaters will primarily ward off the cold which is always a shock after summer. But, if you cop the right knitwear, it becomes a strong visual fixture for the coming season, too.

We've picked out sweaters from names like Raf Simons, Marni, BODE, and more, and they basically paint a beautiful picture of the contemporary knitwear landscape. Modern, unorthodox styles sit alongside embroidered classics to prove that knitwear is looking healthy right now.
