12 Sweaters to Keep You Cozy This Holiday Season

Don't get caught without these knitwear staples.

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.

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.
