    34 Sweaters That Demand To Be Added To Your Winter Wardrobe

    Because the only good thing about freezing cold sweater weather is, well, the sweaters.

    We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. Some may have been sent as samples, but all opinions and reviews are our own.

Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. An asymmetric cowl neck sweater that looks like something I'd want to wear in Martha's Vineyard. I've never actually been but, judging from the photos I've seen on the interwebz, this just really screams Martha's Vineyard in the off-season to me.

    2. An oversized balloon-sleeve sweater perfect for adding a ~pop~ of color to any wardrobe. And if you're not a fan of daring reds, no worries — it's available in a ton of neutral hues, too.

    3. A lounge set meant for great things... by which I mean you will wear nothing else from now on. The comfy hoodie is made more delicious by the fact that it comes equipped with matching joggers, the latter of which are high-waisted and more chic than the fleece pajama bottoms you're sporting at this very moment.

    4. An oversized turtleneck faintly calling out for — do you hear it? — a pair of OTK boots. Perk up your ears, folks, because the heart wants what it wants and *this* sweater demands to be worn exclusively with trendy shoes.

    5. A fuzzy sweater lauded by reviewers for being ridiculously cozy and soft. For a more chic version of your favorite fleece pajama top, *this* is just the ticket you've been scouring the internet for.

    6. A high-neck lantern-sleeve pullover for anyone who adores sweater weather but *hates* feeling as if they're wearing an oversized blanket. A solution knocks at your door! This cropped silhouette means you can remain comfy while showing off a slither of skin with high-waisted leggings.

    7. A slouchy crewneck sweater capable of serving so many looks that I'm feeling a little overwhelmed. Jeans! Leggings! Satin midi skirts that I own in 17 colors but haven't worn since last March! Buy it now, wear it forever.

    8. A split-collar sweater for definitive proof that you don't have to compromise comfort on your journey to looking chic.

    9. A mock neck rib knit sweater that can just as easily be tucked into high-waisted jeans for a ~dressy~ look as it can be worn with black leggings. Versatility is the best quality to look for in a clothing soulmate, and ding ding ding — this one's got it.

    10. A chunky knit cardigan perfect for adding warmth to any 'fit. This basic layer has batwing sleeves, pockets, and comes in a few colors (including lots of neutral hues that won't ever clash).

    11. A slightly cropped turtleneck featuring three side tortoiseshell embellishments that are — I am sorry in advance — as cute as a ~button~. Excuse the puns please, I haven't seen sunlight in a while.

    12. A slouchy cardigan made from a luxuriously soft chenille bound to become the caviar of your entire wardrobe. Tl;dr: it will feel like a combination of clouds and kittens against your skin.

    13. A fitted turtleneck sweater designed with the phrase ~wardrobe staple~ in mind. Simply pair this top with some booties, high-waisted denim, and a red lip for an immediately chic look.

    14. A chunky turtleneck sweater that can be worn with jeans, leggings, sneakers, heeled boots — the world is your fashionable oyster with this trusty top.

    15. A crewneck sweatshirt most likely worn by your AP English teacher and I mean that in the best way possible. These literature-inspired hunks of fleece are best accessorized with a fresh book.

    16. A knee-length sweater coat that serves as a bathrobe you'd actually go out in. Not only will this keep you warm, but it can truly make a plain white tee and black leggings look chic.

    17. A drawstring cowl neck hoodie currently on mega sale — so if you'll excuse me, I'll be adding this to my own personal shopping cart. In all three colors. Bye.

    18. A pullover sweatshirt featuring an alien embellishment you'll definitely want to make ~space~ for in your wardrobe. Extraterrestrial aside, it's made from an ultra soft jersey fabric that is supremely cozy.

    19. A two-piece outfit – it's basically a gazillion options in one: wear this as a matching ensemble, throw on the sweater (key word here being ~sweater~) with workout leggings, pair the bottoms with your favorite band tee, and the list goes on.

    20. A constellation-inspired graphic sweatshirt you can layer under a black blazer for immediate 'gram fame. This isn't as bulky as traditional cable knit, which is truly a *blessing* for those who begin to profusely sweat when the thermostat is raised by even one degree.

    21. A bat-wing sweater complete with an asymmetrical hem you'll want to pair with leggings, combat boots, and a trendy fedora for a look that says "Why yes, I am famous on Pinterest."

    22. A cashmere blend two-tone sweater for a luxe, splurge-worthy gift (from you to you) that will truly pay for itself in the long run. Between the funnel neck top and chic stripes, this is all but *destined* to become part of your daily uniform.

    23. A knit sweater featuring animal print arms that are just 👏 too 👏 damn 👏 good 👏. Talk about being worthy of a ~spot~ in your wardrobe.

    24. A turtleneck sweater paired so perfectly in the photo below that I almost, and I can't believe I'm about to say this, want to... wear jeans? For the first time in 84 years? It's safe to say that this sweater has moved me.

    25. A pretty-darn-fancy cable knit sweater that is the more comfortable equivalent of a corseted ball gown. It's what the Bridgerton cast would wear if they, too, were working from home and living in ::looks around:: these times.

    26. A cowl neck tunic beloved by over 8,000 reviewers. If you're looking for the ideal blend of comfort and versatility, this cozy top is probably the only thing you'll want to wear from now until, well, forever.

    27. A cinched waist pullover voted most likely to be worn by Serena van der Woodsen whilst she worked from home. Aesthetics aside, this lush fabric is crafted from sweat-wicking properties and recycled fishnets.

    28. A subtle puff sleeve sweater you'll want to wear ~back-to-back~ every single day of the week. It's the perfect excuse to go bra-less or (if you hate going sans support) is *also* the perfect opportunity to show off your laciest black bralette.

    29. A Champion cropped hoodie you'll find yourself grabbing over and over (and over and over) again. This cozy sweater is the kind of thing you'll want to hide from your roommate, who will absolutely be tempted to "borrow" it.

    30. A V-neck cardigan adorned with four tortoiseshell buttons that add a bit of flair to an otherwise (and I mean no harm in saying this) basic piece.

    31. A Sublime crewneck with 634 reviewers attesting to how darn cozy it is. The oversized silhouette means you can confidently wear those definitely-not-opaque leggings along with your brightest undergarments. No problemo.

    32. An extra-soft yarn crewneck with a pop of lemon yellow to represent all the sunshine you don't see because it now gets dark by 4 p.m.

    33. A cropped balloon sleeve sweater about to become the only thing you ever wear...probably ever again. What do we love? A comfy top that goes with literally every bottom in your closet. Here's looking at you, hot pink leggings.

    34. A houndstooth pullover practically *begging* to be worn with high-waisted leggings thanks to its cropped silhouette. Looking très chic and exerting no effort to get there!? A dream, honestly.
