I'm always in the mood to add any newness to my closet—no matter how many similar pieces I own. If you feel the same, I know you love any excuse to scroll through all the prettiest, freshest styles hitting your favorite retailers. Since we're still in the throes of winter (bring me warm weather already!), adding a sweater or five to your collection is never a bad thing in an effort to bundle up and layer your outfits. From cardigans to chunky knits, you can choose the thickness you're looking for and you can even wear them over dresses. 

And speaking of the latter, we've also compiled those in a range of styles including more seasonally appropriate sweater dresses and long-sleeve ones, as well as more forward-looking options for spring and any upcoming trips. (Even if you're just manifesting a vacation in your head, anyway.) Keep scrolling to shop all the latest below, whether you're looking for a cute sweater, dress, or both! Why not? 

Lauren Adhav
Freelance Fashion Editor

Lauren Adhav is a freelance fashion editor based in Los Angeles. Originally from Orlando, Florida, she always wanted to work at a fashion magazine. After finally getting an internship at Town & Country in 2015, she moved to New York City and continued to get her footing in the industry with stints at Cosmopolitan, W magazine, Harper's Bazaar, and Moda Operandi. In 2017, she returned to Cosmo full time, starting off as the beauty and fashion editorial assistant and working her way to fashion editor. She contributed to both the website and print issues, pitching new ideas, forecasting trends, covering red carpet events, and informing the overall coverage and brand voice.

After five years in NYC, she moved to the West Coast for the sunshine and the change of pace. As a freelance fashion editor, she still contributes to Cosmo and now Who What Wear. She's always trying to get ahead of the next big trend before it goes mainstream and loves discovering fashion brands with a unique point of view (Chopova Lowena, Sandy Liang, and Bode being some of her current favorites). She also spends an unhealthy amount of time online shopping for the perfect piece, and now that she's in L.A., she's rediscovering her soft spot for malls. On the weekends, you can find her walking around the Silver Lake Reservoir, trying to catch up on her tan at Venice Beach, and probably ordering a Chinese chicken salad at Joan's on Third.
