I hate to sound like a broken record, but red is truly the color of the season. It was all over the fall 2023 runways and was quickly adopted by the fashion set. We've already done a few generalized shopping roundups to inspire you to wear red, but today I'm laser-focused on one specific item: sweaters. I spent a considerable amount of time sifting through our readers' favorite brands, such as H&M, & Other Stories, Mango, Maje, Ralph Lauren, and more. The result? A list of the very best red sweaters for women on the market right now.

My selection includes a variety of cardigans, striped crew-necks, short sleeves, long sleeves, collared sweaters, and one very special piece that Princess Diana once owned. Scroll down to shop the best red sweaters for fall and winter, according to a fashion editor. 

Associate Director, Fashion News

Erin got her start as a Who What Wear intern over 13 years ago—back when the site only published a single story per day. (Who What Wear has since increased that number twentyfold.) She graduated magna cum laude from USC, which is how she ended up moving to Los Angeles from her hometown of San Diego. In college, she also interned at Refinery29, where she was promoted to editorial assistant and then assistant editor. After nearly three years at R29, she came back to WWW in 2016, where she currently holds the title of Associate Director of Fashion News (as well as the unofficial title of resident royal expert—in case you haven't noticed her numerous Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton stories). She spends her days trying to incorporate her idols, Anna Wintour and Roger Federer, into as many stories as possible. Outside of work, she loves tennis, classic rock, traveling, and smothering her dog with affection.
