RAGSTOCK's Top Five Fall Sweaters
by Drew Bouman + Abby Sliva
Ragstock is known for being the foremost supplier of Ugly Christmas Sweater, but the Ugly Christmas Sweater has a lesser known sibling: The Halloween Sweater!
Here are our team’s top five pics for iconic Halloween sweaters that are sure to get you into the spirit of spooky season (spirit Halloween pun intended).
Vintage Fence Cats
We are starting our list off strong with this great orange crewneck from the 90s. It really captures everything a good Halloween celebration is all about; the jack-o’-lanterns, the black cats, the moon, plus it's a classic pumpkin orange. So many witchy touches in an iconic children’s book art style that gives it that ‘music teacher’ feel in the best way. Toss this one on over a white turtleneck, pair it with your favorite pair of blue jeans and you're ready for a trip to the local coffee shop for a pumpkin spice latte. Basic, but classic!
Knit Jack-O-Lantern Sweater
Going a little more traditional on the term sweater for this next one. This knit sweater is from 1980 and is a great way to add just a pinch of spookiness to your look. It takes the classic winter sweater pattern and replaces a snowflake with a jack-o-lantern! We styled this sweater with a pleated skirt and a pair of chunky loafers, but the options are really limitless with this one. Go all in on a denim look and pair this with blue jeans and a denim jacket, or go a bit edgier and add a leather jacket to the pleated skirt look. You could also switch it up and go for a more dressed up feel by layering it over a button-up with some trousers.
Vintage Gourds Sweater Vest
We’re taking a look at this GOURD-ous vest next! This sweater is for everyone who believes that fall is about more than just Halloween. The scarecrows, the sunflowers, the autumn leaves. This one is as cute as it is cozy! Plus, who doesn’t love a good patchwork piece? Sweater vests are a layering aficionado's best friend, so have fun with this one. Personally, this would be my statement piece and I would layer it over a casual tee with vintage jeans, or straight leg brown Dickies!
Winnie The Pooh Crewneck
We have a Winnie the Pooh fan in the office so this might be a biased pick. But… It is a pretty solid feel-good fall sweater. This 90’s crewneck is full of nostalgia, and brings you right back to the pumpkin carving days of your youth when no matter how hard you tried, your jack-o’-lantern never quite turned out like you planned. No matter if you’re more like Pooh or Piglet when it comes to carving, this sweater is perfect for all your Fall activities. For apple orchards, pumpkin patches, hot cider and scary movies, this sweatshirt has you covered.
Candy Corn Turtleneck
The last one on our list is a candy corn turtleneck sweatshirt with the cutest fall themed graphic. It switches the art style up a bit from the other orange crewneck on the list, but still features some great Halloween classic imagery. We styled our friend Lewis in this with a great pair of straight cut blue Dickies. The perfect outfit for handing out candy, or drinking hot cider around a bonfire. Feel free to add some more layers to this one too, this sweatshirt will look cute with leather or denim jackets for that full Fall look!
