Let’s talk about how women’s winter sweaters are the new blazers.
Whether it’s a refined loungewear item, a weekend brunch staple, or a must-have to pair with work pants, a quality sweater is one of the most convenient to stack in your wardrobe.
From turtlenecks from Lulus and cashmere sweaters from MMLaFleur, to knits from Petal & Pup and little finds from LOFT, I’ve put together a pretty cute and cozy collection.
That said, a chunky or striped sweater doesn’t have to break the bank. You can find tons of options on Amazon for warm, affordable fabrics you’ll want to wear all winter long.
Ahead, check out the 21 best winter sweaters for women we’ve curated just for you, suitable for every style, color and budget, including cashmere and cardigan options. Plus, we’ve included size options and whether our top picks are available in other colors to make online shopping easier.
