I love oversized sweaters though! It’s 100% acrylic so it doesn’t shrink, which is nice. It’s also super soft without being scratchy. I love the cable-knit design!

It's so incredibly cozy and oversized, just how I imagined. And can we talk about the color?!!!! It's so rich and such a perfect shade of mustard yellow. For reference, I'm 5'2" and 125 pounds and purchased a small. I'm seriously contemplating buying more in case anything happens to this one." —EW

    Promising review: "After buying this sweater, I thought I might return it but I actually fell in love when it arrived! So comfy and if you are trying to achieve the look the model is wearing, order your normal size. I wear a M/L (ordered an M) and yes the sweater was slouchy but thats because I wanted it to be! Great material to look a tad oversized without drowning in it. Still defines my figure. Comes with some stretch which I love!" —Caroline

Definitely a good purchase and I can’t wait for it to cool off so I can wear it!" —Annalise Ebersole

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99 (available in sizes S–L and two styles).

    9. A trendy sweater for when you want to give your office nemesis the ~cold shoulder~ while walking past them at the coffee machine.


    Promising review: "I absolutely love this sweater! I have always wanted to try the 'cold shoulder' style but have been apprehensive because I wasn't sure if I'd like it. I don't like it, I love it! It is super cute and very comfortable. It is a little big but I prefer a little larger so I can pair it with leggings or skinny jeans. I am very happy with the way this sweater looks and will most likely order another one in a different color!" —Angela

    Promising review: "This is such a cute sweater! It fits as expected — order the size you are unless you want it even more oversized. The sleeves are long and wide and the fit is wide, loose, and comfy. It is normal length, so that is something to keep in mind — it doesn't cover my butt — so if you want a longer sweater this one might not be the right fit. I love how soft and comfy this is, and the color is very pretty. Really happy!" —Rachel Yu

    Promising review: "I absolutely love this sweater!! I think it's probably my favorite piece I have purchased the last few months.

The material is really warm and comfy not scratchy like I thought it would be." —Nicole Julum

    Promising review: "This is a fantastic sweater. Great quality. It looks like it costs more than it did. Fuzzy inside which is really nice and it doesn't look like the kind of fuzz that will pick up all the lint in your dryer so that you have to throw it out after two washes. It zips and buttons. Cute hood, also fuzzy inside. Arms fit nicely, great length for what I wanted. Loose, nice length but not hanging into the middle of my hand. Can wear out, or around the house depending on what you wear with it. Am thinking of ordering another one. Going to check out more colors now." —BeachRanchAir

    Promising review: "Like the name says: this sweater is oversized and slightly long, so I went down one size to a medium and it fit like a normal sweater, just more slouchy and relaxed. I was pleasantly surprised at the weight of the sweater because it's thin enough to tuck into jeans comfortably/seamlessly. It's also soooooo soft! I ordered the grey one and it just looks so effortlessly cool with some jeans and boots :) Definitely going to buy more whenever there's a sale!" —Megan

This fit the bill 100%! It is exactly as shown — a bit oversized, which is the style, but not completely without shape. It looks great tucked into jeans or with leggings. The neck lays nice and the fabric is warm and soft. I would definitely recommend this sweater and would reorder!" —Jacqueline

    Promising review: "Super unique and super cute. The details on this really make it special. It’s soft and lightweight. Pretty rose color. Made well. Fits great too, for reference I’m a typical medium. This medium fits nice and flowy. Could maybe size down too if you wanted it a little less roomy. I completely LOVE this so much!" —Leah
