Women’s Cardigan Sweaters
For that luxe, oversized look, the Qualfort 100% Cotton Cardigan Sweater is your best bet. Not only is it less than $35 on Amazon right now, but it comes in virtually every color you can think of (with the cutest button detailing, too!)
Abercrombie Loop Stitch Non-Closure Cardigan
We have yet to find something from Abercrombie we’re not obsessed with. Swoon-worthy as ever, the brand’s Loop Stitch Non-Closure Cardigan is here to stay for fall — especially in this match-all gray color. Not to mention, not all cardis have to close.
The Quince 100% Organic Cotton Oversized Cardigan is meant to stay with you at all times, much ado for its breathable, plush design and cozy, all-day comfort. Choose from any neutral color you fancy, especially if you’re looking to wear it with your best jeans.
Plus, we love cashmere for less.
We found the only heart-printed cardigan you’ll need, thanks to its quality material. Anthropologie’s signature Heart Cardigan is less than $150 and the perfect splurge if you love to layer. When paired with a crisp white tee, you’ll feel your best.
Indulge in the ba&sh Gaspard Knitted Cardigan. Designer-chic and luxurious to the touch, its gold button detailing is they key to our heart. With a flattering bodysuit and a mini skirt, you’ll be ready to go apple picking and off to a dinner date in style.
Women’s Pullover Sweaters
Get cozy for fall in this super comfortable Carhartt pullover sweater. Choose from four fun colors such as Lavender Heather, Slate Green, and more. No matter which one you go with, you’ll be wrapped up in bliss all season long.
Much to our delight, Lulus has a wonderful colorblock sweater that’s less than $60! It’s blend of match-all hues and cozy fit is comparable to many designer options we’ve seen — but for less. Plus, it’ll look good, regardless of occasion.
Classic and ultra-cozy, the Gap Relaxed Crewneck Sweater is one you’ll want to pick up in every shade. It’s the perfect versatile pullover to add to your fall fashion collection, especially if you’re on the hunt for a warm top to style with your finest pair of work pants. Oh, and we love how it’ll never go out of fashion.
The preppy, collared style is so in, to the point where we jumped up and down upon seeing the AE Oversized Collared Sweater for just $50 at American Eagle. We can’t contain our excitement for this lavender hue (note: more colors are available, too) and its simplistic yet stylish cut.
Speaking of $50, how about a Pinterest-inspired, cute striped pullover for the same price? The Francesca’s Cindy Boucle Striped Pullover Sweater is a neutral dream with beautiful stitching and a lightweight design. Its crew neckline also gives it a more casual appeal.
Oh, Free People — how we love you. Isn’t its Uptown Stripe Pullover the epitome of oversized comfort? Though a splurge, it’ll definitely be one of your most-worn (we can promise you that). Not to mention, its vibrant color palette is so springy, it’ll serve as a wonderful transitional piece come spring.
Women’s Cashmere Sweaters
As one of the best cashmere sweaters we rounded up, Quince serves all the colors for only $50. Seriously, go add one of each to your cart before they’re gone (in all the lovely colors).
M.M.LaFleur knows how to cashmere. I have two of the brand’s Arbus Cashmere Sweaters stocked in my closet for holiday dinners, cozy date nights out and back-to-office treks. And, they’re so dreamy.
For a cozy-inspired and put-together take on cashmere, consider Everlane’s The Cashmere Classic Crew Sweater. Our favorite is this rust red color but, because it’s such a staple, it comes in other neutral tones for you to choose from.
Ah, J.Crew. The mother of classic fashion. Pick up its bestselling cashmere crewneck in this gorgeous periwinkle shade, along with a palette of others, for just under $130.
The C by Bloomingdale’s Cashmere Embroidered Floral Cashmere Sweater has extra girly and feminine flair — and we’ve already added it to our wishlists. With your favorite denim wash, your everyday glam makeup and a fresh blowout (perhaps with one of the best blow dry brushes we reviewed), you’ll very much be on your way to having a great day.
Women’s Sweaters on Amazon
Even if it’s winter, wrap tops are still in. Pick up this one from Amazon in all the colors your closet is wishing for, especially if you love wrap-style tops and fresh, fun colors.
Plaid will never go out of style, and this split-checked sweater has one of the coziest, relaxed fits we found. Not to mention, it’s a quality option for less than $45.
Black, black baby. Pick up this well-textured waffle knit sweater for a dark-toned natural to add to your winter fashion pile. Plus, it comes in a variety of other shades.
OK, we’re heart eyes for Amazon’s trendy yet classic sweater arrival, the ZESICA Lapel Collar V-Neck Ribbed Knit Pullover Sweater. It answers all our Pinterest hopes and dreams and looks incredible with denim jeans and gold jewelry, too.
Blair Waldorf, is that you? We’re all about this Amazon pullover — also from ZESICA — with the academia-leaning stripe detailing. Uniquely, this green and ivory knit is a vivid yet neutral blend that’s fun to style.
