    Promising review: "The perfect moody fall sweater doesn't exi...YES IT DOES AND YOU'RE LOOKING AT IT! Y'all, this sweater came as a one size and let me just tell you, it is PERFECTION!

    Promising review: "Loved it. I took along on a recent trip overseas where there was an unseasonably cold few days and this was a perfect jacket to layer over my flimsy tees. The poly fabric will not shrink and provides some warmth. I washed several times in those weird European combo washer/dryers and it came out looking like new every time. The fit is as described. It gives apple-shaped bodies somewhat of a waistline, and works great to minimize large busts. It works with jeans, over dresses, and with skirts and a simple top. I plan to order more for fall." —Victoria

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99 (available in sizes S–3XL and 15 colors).

    Promising review: "Adore this cropped sweatshirt! The Apricot color is a beautiful creamy beige true to the photo, but the fabric makes it look even better in person. The material is high quality, and the fleece on the inside is so soft. I love the raw-hem detail and that it puffs at the cuff. I saw something similar to this at Free People for $128 and this is even better..." —Brittany

    Get it from Amazon for $22.99+ (available in sizes S–XL and in 12 colors).

    Promising review: "Love this! Well worth the price! I ordered a medium so that it wouldn’t be too oversized and look awkward. And it fits perfect!! I paired it with a white turtleneck underneath, but the options are limitless here. Was surprised at the quality of this’s very soft and thick. Which wasn’t what I expected at all. My only real complaint is the price of the item. However, this item is very trendy, so I understand. Would definitely, and might, buy again very soon!" —Amazon Customer

    22. A sleeved turtleneck sweater — In the words of Kamala Harris, "We did it, Joe [well, BuzzFeed]." We found the perfect turtleneck that looks good with everything and can be worn anywhere.

    Reviewer wearing black turtleneck

    Promising review: "I was so happy with this turtleneck that I bought another! One in white and one in black. I’ve been watching a lot of Succession, and realized that if I want to convey more of a rich-person-chic look, I better get some turtlenecks. Jokes aside, it fits well and is soft and not too tight around the neck, which is always an issue with turtlenecks. It is somewhat of a thin material, but is not see-through, unless you are very close up. It’s not warm enough on its own, but is thin and easy to wear under a coat or sweater." —Amelia Larson

    Get it from Amazon for $22.90+ (available in sizes XS–XXL and 26 colors).

    23. A lantern-sleeve sweater that combines the best parts of a warm winter jacket, a fluffy towel, and plush comforter into one item. Basically you'll feel snug as a bug while wearing this.

    Promising review: "Soft, lightweight, and warm. This sweater is not just another, it is extremely warm, comfortable, yet there is a light weight to it where you don't feel it's too heavy. You can easily put on a jacket over it. Good quality." —lissette viana

    Get it from Amazon for $26.99+ (available in sizes 8–14 and 13 colors).

    24. A sleeved button sweater to become your fall outerwear. Seriously, this will keep you warm and it's roomy enough to layer off shirts and turtlenecks.,

    Promising review: "This is a magical top. I love it! The material is very stretchy and comfortable, slouchy yet fitted, and I love that the buttons give it a little something extra." —Kersten

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99+ (available in sizes 4–18 and in six colors).

    25. A casual sweater that is actually the perfect top to wear to a ball game. You'll feel warm and look like a fan...even if you have no idea what's happening.

    Promising review: "I love this shirt, it’s super cute and perfect for this fall transition! Today was pretty cold outside, it even hailed for a bit but I was both warm and cute in this top. I dressed it up & wore it tucked into a cute skirt, but I love the length of it and know it would look just as cute with a nice pair of jeans! Great material, I’ve already washed once & it doesn't feel cheaply made & is super soft and comfy. Very happy with my order!" —sontahmaria

    Get it from Amazon for $18.99 (available in sizes 14 plus–28 plus)

    26. A two-piece cotton tracksuit available in 33 colors that I will wear until my friends get sick of seeing me in it. This is the perfect casual outfit...and I will be snatching it up in every hue.

    Reviewer wearing black set

    Promising review: "I'm always kind of nervous to order clothes online because you never know what you're going to get. The fit, color, and fabric may be all wrong. I thought this was so cute though, so I thought I'd give it a shot and it didn't disappoint. I got the dark green color which is so pretty, plus it's so soft and comfortable. I may order more in different colors because it's so cozy." —Debi

    Get it from Amazon for $27.99+ (available in sizes S–3XL and in 18 colors).

    Model wearing black cowl neck wrap sweater

    Promising review: "I love this sweater because it is warm, yet breathable! Most sweaters make me hot and the fabric is not too thick but just enough to keep me warm. I love how it goes well with both jeans and leggings, making it just my style either way. It fits loose on me, but I like that it is comfortable and doesn't rub up against me like some uncomfortable sweaters do. I have already got several comments while I was out and about today saying how pretty it is! I am very happy with my purchase and I would recommend it to my family and friends!" —Laura Bailey

    Get it from Amazon for $17.88 (available in sizes S–XXL and 10 colors).
