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.
