12 Sweaters to Keep You Cozy This Holiday Season
While it's fine to follow the trends from time to time, the best strategy when building a wardrobe is to anchor it to the classics. Especially when it comes to knitwear. That doesn't mean you can't have a little fun with cut, color, or pattern; it just means that you should look out for options that'll look just as good next winter as they do right now. Here are 12 of them.
1| Topman Ribbed Sweater
You can't beat a simple crewneck sweater. Layer under, layer over, or wear it alone.
2| Abercrombie Airspun Cardigan
Cardigans don't have to feel stuffy. This one fits a little oversized and feels like a sweatshirt.
3| Uniqlo Cashmere Turtleneck Sweater
Do not sleep on Uniqlo's $100 cashmere.
4| Everlane Wool Cashmere Mockneck
And if a turtleneck is too much, a ribbed mockneck is an easy alternative.
5| Club Monaco Jaxon Sweater
This sweater used tweed as inspiration—but made it modern, and much cozier.
6| Todd Snyder Courtesy Tipped Turtleneck
In a monochrome outfit, some strategic white stripes can really set it apart.
7| Rag & Bone Shetland Sweater
Rag & Bone—a brand known for churning out the New York City color palette of whites, blacks, and grays—knows the right time for a bit of color.
8| Vince Ribbed Crewneck Sweater
Vince's sweaters have the best kind of shape: They're slightly oversized, but lay flat. Wear it all winter.
9| Faherty Huron Shawl Collar Cardigan
If you're not afraid of a bold sweater, opt for something like this: a busy pattern, but thoughtfully minimal pops of color.
10| Burberry Zip-Up Cardigan
Lean into the mountainous ski vibes by wearing this with some thick wool socks and casual hiking boots.
11| The Elder Statesman Striped Intarsia Cashmere Sweater
The Elder Statesman makes handmade cashmere. If you're going to go in on a sweater, this is a damn good one to choose.
12| Brunello Cucinelli Button Detailed Cotton Sweater
And if you're in the market for an investment, an expertly crafted, simple cotton sweater wears as well as a custom suit.
