Yes, I said it. The Bill Cosby sweater has been a well-known symbol of of the 1980s and 1990s… typical dad sweater. In my eyes, the Cosby sweater is a must-have for every closet. The Bill Cosby sweater is just like those funky Christmas sweaters you see during winter, but can be worn throughout the year. Anyone can rock this funky sweater–  it’s great to wear this fall when you find your self spending long hours in the library. These sweaters are comfy and goofy, which will show others that your style can be fun.

The Bill Cosby sweater can be found at your local Goodwill or Salvation Army stores. Or better yet, look through your Dad or Grandpa’s hand-me- downs. All Bill Cosby sweaters are solely unique with different colors or patterns. So just pick one that speaks to you the most and rock it. And yes they are supposed to be baggy and funky!

How to wear a Cosby sweater? Its honestly up to you. I prefer to wear my Cosby sweater with skinny jeans paired with black converse  with my hair up in a bun.
