Johnny Collar Sweaters for Fall

Last fall, the 3/4 zip sweater was a big trend and the Johnny collar sweater was following behind. This fall, you'll still see zip-neck sweaters, but you'll see a lot more Johnny collar sweaters (also known as polo neck sweaters). With a v-neck and a collar, it's a stylish alternative that can look professional or casual depending on styling.

The 3/4 zip sweater, with its sporty vibes and comfortable fit, was a favorite among fashion enthusiasts. It offered a modern twist to classic sweaters, bringing an effortless coolness to any outfit. However, as we transition into a new season, the Johnny Collar sweater is set to take the spotlight.

This versatile piece is perfect for those seeking a touch of sophistication in their wardrobe. It can be worn with tailored trousers or skirts for a polished office look, or paired with jeans and ankle boots for a more laid-back weekend ensemble. The collar adds a refined touch, elevating the sweater and making it a go-to choice for any occasion. So, if you're looking to update your knitwear collection this fall, keep an eye out for the Johnny collar sweater – it's the trend to embrace for a stylish and polished look.


V-Neck Sweater Style Hack for 2023

If you're anything like me, you'll be thrilled to know that this fall, we're going to see a major comeback of cardigans as standalone sweaters. This has been a cardigan trend that has been popular for a while, but mainly with influencers wearing cardigans backwards like crewneck with an interesting button detail on the back. But this fall? Wear the v-neck cardigan as normal, but button it up to turn it into a v-neck sweater.

I am personally thrilled because this means items already in your closet can have a second life and be on trend. I am all about big style with a smaller wardrobe, and this is a little style hack that can achieve more of that. If you want some tips on which cardigans are in style for 2023, check out this article on Wardrobe Oxygen.

  1. Can I ask a stupid question? What do you wear *under* a sweater? My office seems to be the same temperature year-round (and don’t even start me on the Tube being a sauna) and I fear being too hot and not being able to take layers off! Or if you wear a cute top underneath it inevitably doesn’t layer well and looks all lumpy. What am I getting wrong?!

    1. Yes, I second this question. I do not wear collared shirts. A low tank isn’t super comfortable with a cashmere sweater. A crewneck defeats the purpose of the v. I am not gong to wear a sweater without an under layer, even though they are frequently advertised so. Help!

  2. I’ve been enjoying all your fall content, Alison! I just received the Universal Standard Eco Relaxed Core V Neck Sweater in black (the dark green 4xs-4xl in the top collage) and it is really nice! It looks like it may be on sale today too.

  3. I have moved from v-necks to crewnecks in the past two years – I’m not sure why, and of course I still own plenty of V-necks, but crewnecks started looking better to me. Probably Fashion Habituation Symptom. What I am DELIGHTED to see, however, it the rise of the faux-wrap V-neck. Real wrap sweaters are my absolute favorites, have been for 30 years, and… are very difficult to find with my criteria (B-corp or sustainable production, at a price I can afford.) If the trend moves from faux to the real thing, I will be stocking up for the next 20 years. Fingers crossed!

  4. V-Necks!! Every year I search for v-necks whether it’s tee shirts in the summer or sweaters in the Fall. I have a very short neck and am very busty (42DDD) I need the V to make it appear that I have a neck at all. Last year I stocked up on every color of V-neck solid sweaters that Chico’s carried! I thought I was set for this Winter until I saw the faux wraps with buckles. I’ll be heading to Bloomingdales for the black one as soon as our SoCal temps get below 90!

  5. I totally agree with the lack of v neck sweaters. I have been wondering if it’s because they’re more expensive to make. Having small shoulders crewnecks don’t work on me at all but they are everywhere, even in t shirts. Thanks for this shopping list!

  6. Thanks for this roundup. I too have been bemoaning the lack of v-necks. I’ve been on the hunt for a simple black v-neck that’s not cropped and haven’t had much luck. The J Jill one looks like it’ll work. You’ve also shown so many sweaters made of natural fibers which also seem like they’re on decline and have been replaced, in many cases, by polyester. There’s a price point difference, course, but I’ve seen more expensive sweaters made of the hateful stuff. I wonder if that might be something you could write about in future?

  7. This is so helpful, Alison. Crewnecks are not my friend, and your roundup of v-neck sweaters will save me lots of time. I was told that v-necks cost more to produce, and this is why many makers default to crewnecks. I don’t know if that is true, but I am glad there are so many v-necks out there. Thank you for a very helpful reference piece.

  8. Thanks for this great v-neck sweater roundup and for including the more and more elusive petites! I’m busty and apple shaped, so crewnecks do me no favors. I admit that I won’t miss the dropped shoulders when they finally go out of style. They look terrible on my narrow sloped shoulders.
