If there’s one article of clothing that has the ability to bring complete, total, unmitigated joy to an otherwise drab day, it’s a sweater. Working from home or running errands while wearing an old T-shirt is a completely different experience from doing the same thing in a big, soft ball of yarn that feels like its swallowing you up in its warmth and pure coziness.
The past few years have shown us one thing: The best fall sweaters sell out fast. Once we’re deep into sweater weather, your chances of getting your hands on the ones of your dreams get slimmer and slimmer—so that means that there is no better time than now to shop them.
Some of our favorite stores—like H&M, J.Crew, Old Navy, and more—seriously brought their A-game this year when it comes to sweaters, so we’ve rounded up more than 30 of the absolute best ones. Shop them now, and your future self will be sure to thank you:
You know ’em and you love ’em. These classic crew and V-neck sweaters are always reliable, and they look insanely cute paired with anything from jeans and boots to a midi skirt and sneakers. Whether you opt for a fitted or an oversized silhouette, these sweaters are guaranteed to make you look chic.
Collared & Zip Sweaters
A major trend for fall 2022, collared sweaters are a great way to take your classic sweater and put a little twist on it. They add a fun touch that will make you feel like the cool mom that you are. If you want to take it even further, try one with a zipper detail.
Is there anything more cozy than a turtleneck sweater? I don’t think so. These are the sweaters that will be your go-to all of fall and winter, so it’s worth it to have options that you truly love. Go full-on cozy mode with a chunky knit, or keep it refined with a fine-knit that can take you from the office to date night.
Cardigans are truly a girl’s best friend. Not only are they great layering pieces, but they add a little something special to any otherwise plain outfit. Cardigans are having a serious moment right now, so you’ll definitely want to pick up one or two to have in your wardrobe this fall.
