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

    Target, Heather Braga / BuzzFeed

    I gifted my sister this sweater and it is perfectly oversized and SO snuggly. We recently went to see a Broadway show while she was visiting New York — she's not used to the cold at all — and it kept her nice and warm while still looking appropriate for a fun outing. Don't leave this sweater behind, add it to your wardrobe ASAP!

    Get it from Target for $20; available in sizes XS–XXL and four colors and in plus-sizes X–4X and three colors.

    29. An elegant sweater you'll feel like a genie granted you with thanks to its lantern sleeves and various special detailing.

    30. An oversized crewneck sweater I might need to buy as soon as I finish writing this sentence because I'm already daydreaming about snuggling up in it this weekend.

    Promising review: "This sweater is SO soft and thick, and feels like high quality! I need more of these in my life. Do yourself a favor and GET IT. It fits oversized but not TOO oversized. Just right. For reference, I am a 5'5", 150lbs and normally wear a medium. I think this could fit anyone from a S-XL and still look excellent." —Ashlee C

    Get it from Amazon for $39.97 (available in one-size and 23 colors).

    31. An open-back sweater wrapped with a bow you should buy as a present to yourself — you deserve it.

    Promising review: "This is my first purchase from Everlane. I’m really happy with the quality of the cashmere for the price. I find the cheaper cashmere lasts only one season so this is a good middle ground. Great style too. On the advice of a friend I ordered a size up (also because I have a larger bust). Oh and it is not itchy! " —Kelly1970

    Get it from Everlane for $145 (available in sizes XS–XL and three colors).
