Cozy knit sweaters are the cornerstone of any cold-weather wardrobe, but while last month we curated more casual styles, this month we're enamored with fancy sweaters. Not only are these jumpers warm and comfortable, they each sport a festive touch, like sequin embellishments or metallic coating, which makes them perfect for the party circuit this season. As a bonus, our selection of Under $150 sweaters won't break the bank, leaving you with plenty of holiday gift shopping money too.The Inspiration
A fancy sweater can make a truly sophisticated statement when worn with equally luxe separates. Oscar de la Renta's Resort 13 runway offers an elegant alternative to a gown or cocktail dress with the Sequined Long-Sleeve Pullover ($2290) and Starburst Pleated Skirt ($3490). The sweater's subtle gold glints complement the skirt's shimmering lame material, and paired with chunky earrings, a sparkly clutch, and Gladia Cage Sandals ($895) in Gold, the entire outfit delivers a festive take on evening dressing. Seeking a few budget-friendly options? Keep reading for our must-have picks.
