For some, the start of a new year can mean the chance to make a significant change (e.g., accomplishing a long-standing goal or making a resolution). But for the fashion set, it marks the opportunity to reinvent oneself through clothing. It's a chance to clean out your closet, adopt a few trends, and embrace the sartorial freedom that comes from transitioning into a new season. While the process of change is an all-around thrilling endeavor, I'd be lying if I didn't admit there was one particular trend that's got me hyped: off-the-shoulder sweaters.
While this knitwear silhouette has been around forever, this style has undergone a revival over the past few seasons that makes it feel brand-new. Designers have taken the formerly vanilla style and spiced it up through the usage of vibrant hues, luxe fabrications, and sultry design details. But it's not just the runway that's embraced this new-and-improved version of the off-the-shoulder sweater. I've seen this style proliferate across our favorite retailers, from Zara to Ssense, and become an unsung hero among the fashion set.
In short, the reboot of this sweater is something to be excited about this year. And to prove that point, I've scoured the internet to round up the 42 best off-the-shoulder sweaters at every price point. Sure, a sweater may not be as life-changing as finally booking that trip to Paris, but I can guarantee this style can make you feel like a new person—even if the only major change you made was wearing one of these sweaters for the day.
