The minute the weather begins to cool and the skies turn that familiar shade of overcast gray, I immediately go into my closet and pull out all of my coziest knitwear. I am nothing if not a sweater superfan—I maintain that fall is sartorially the best season of the four—and so many of them come from French cult-favorite sustainable brand, Sézane. The brand’s fall collection is chock-full of luxe-feeling pieces for you to bundle up in right now and to wear for the rest of the chilly months.
The collection includes an array of cardigans and other chunky sweaters that come in a mix of luxe-looking neutrals, fun bright shades, and a few playful prints including a bright red—one of fall’s most in-demand colors—and a few sweet-feeling pastel floral iterations. But the coziness doesn’t just extend to the sweaters in the drop. The brand also included a few pairs of loungewear-adjacent knit trousers, lusciously oversized scarves for you to wrap yourself up in immediately, and some warm-yet-cute fuzzy socks for you to accessorize your look this season. Basically, Sézane made it possible for you to wear your comfiest outfits into the office this fall without looking like you’re wearing something you would normally wear to sit on your couch over the weekend.
Naturally, I’ve rounded up all of the best pieces from Sézane’s fall collection for you to shop right now. Keep scrolling to see all of my picks (some of which I own) and lean into the most wonderful time of the year: Sweater weather.

I'm not saying that Taylor Swift's song, "Betty," inspired this boxy cardigan from Sezane, but I'm also not saying that the song isn't making me want to buy it now that we're in sweater season. While most cardigans are relaxed and slouchy, this one has a more structured fit that elevates it to another level. You can shop the matching pair of knit trousers (keep scrolling) or team it with a pair of jeans and ballet flats for a French girl-inspired look.
The Barry is one of Sézane’s best-selling cardigans and it's back for the new season in tons of colors including this petal pink, a classic black, a cherry red, and a Barbiecore pink hue. It has a slimmer fit and is made from a lightweight-yet-warm mohair blend, making it perfect for tucking into a pair of jeans for a subtly-French ensemble.
Or, if you want to add. some *spice* to your knitwear drawer this fall, consider picking up the Kristie Jumper in this multicolored check iteration. The inclusion of the burnt red hue in the pattern makes it easy to style with a pair of coordinating warm brown trousers.
I love a sweater dress in the winter. I own several and I wear them every time I need to look put-together in under five minutes. This one from the classic French brand is available in other neutral shades like burgundy, black, camel, and ecru.
I love cardigans that can easily double as tops, and this sky-blue cardigan fits that category. It's longer in the body than other options so it can be easily tucked into your jeans. Also available in shades like ecru and black, it's made from 100 merino wool for a effortlessly cool shape.
This sweater is on my personal wishlist. The gold buttons along the collar are functional so you can show a touch of skin or keep them fastened for an office-appropriate touch. While this trendy red color is everywhere right now and is very festive to boot, it's also available in a few other more neutral shades like a navy-and-white striped pattern and plain white.
Trench coats are a universal closet staple. This relaxed option from Sezane is available in three colors and in sizes zero through 16. It's made from a water-repellant, 100 percent cotton material, which means that it's lightweight and sturdy enough for winter and spring weather.
Sezane's shoe collection is criminally underrated. The chic selection includes pairs like these red loafers that offer a festive twist on your usual black pair. Available in sizes five through 11, they feature rope-like gold hardware across the toe. Or, shop them in other shades like cream or black.
Behold, the ribbed trousers that match perfectly with the Betty Cardigan. The Matthew Trousers are made from 100 percent merino wool and have a high-waisted fit with a long straight leg. The elasticated waistband makes them the office-appropriate version of leggings.
"Everyone needs a classic crewneck sweater this fall. This one just happens to come in the season's trendiest shade to boot. It also comes in shades like a ballet-inspired pale pink, an icy blue, and neutral shades like black and olive green. I personally own this sweater and can attest to it's comfort." — Julia Marzovilla, E-Commerce Editor
I'm not normally a scarf person (I don't like how they leave my hair in knots), but this luxe Louise Scarf from the brand is on my wish list. It comes in two printed colorways and is made from a 80 percent Alpaca wool blend for softness. It's practically a blanket and will keep you warm.
On the more fitted side of the spectrum sits this Charly Jumper. Available in three colors—black, cream, and this bright pink—it's made from a merino wool and cotton blend that's soft to the touch and great for layering. The mock-neck silhouette can easily be worn underneath a chunkier knit or a hoodie for added warmth without adding bulk. I will be buying it in all three colors.
There's something about this retro-feeling cardigan that I can't stop thinking about. The cool blue hue, delicate V-neck silhouette, and sweet-feeling knitted detail down the front make it a perfet addition to your neutral palette for fall. It's available in four colors: this blue, a grape-tinged purple, a black, and a cream hue.
I love wearing ribbed skirts in the winter—they're basically a sweater for your legs. This one from the brand comes in two colors: this white option and a mid-toned blue. High-waisted and flowy, it's a great way to wear winter whites without looking too neat and clean. I would personally accessorize with a pair of chunky black boots for a bit of edge.
This 100 percent merino wool olive green sweater dress is so similar to the one that Taylor Swift wore while out to drinks in New York recently. I would accessorize it in a similar way with knee-high boots and a denim jacket.
This pair of pale pink trousers is made from a 70 percent Wool blend and come in several colors (powder blue! Navy blue!) in case you want to add a pop of something different into your trouser rotation. They have a straight relaxed fit and there's a matching blazer that you can buy to complete the look.
Another day, another knit skirt I can't stop thinking about. this one has a straighter fit and comes in fun colors like this bright purple. It also comes in shades like a deep green, a navy-and-white striped version, and black.
