Sweaters are a very practical purchase right now, all things considered. You can lounge in them, wear them to the store with your sweats and Uggs, and throw them over your shoulders when you want to look particularly stylish. While fall and winter bring out the best chunky knits in all of us, there is one sweater trend, in particular, that is not only seasonless (which is always a win) but somehow always looks way more expensive than it actually is. The sweater style I speak of is ribbed knits. 

Ribbed knits can take the form of anything from a cozy lounge pant to a fitted turtleneck. No matter how cheap the actual knit ends up being, this particular style always looks triple the price due to the striking texture the ribbing provides, and if you ask me, an outfit that only looks expensive is somehow more satisfying than one that cost you an arm and a leg. Ahead, I have rounded up the 25 best ribbed sweaters that prove my theory that this sweater trend looks pricey no matter how much you spent on it. 

Because these days, loungewear sets are life. 

If you think this top is cute, just wait until you see the matching bottoms. 

When Jacquemus is this on sale, you just say yes. 

At this price, you might as well get all three colors. 

The perfect turtleneck to wear with jeans. 

But if you currently hate jeans, get these instead. 

Add a pop of color to any fall outfit with this bright orange hue. 

Finally, a pretty dress that is stylish and comfortable. 

It's about time you update your loungewear selection. 

This slit is really doing it for me. 

I honestly haven't fallen in love with anything so quickly. 

A perfect example of how this sweater trend can look so expensive. 

This cardigan is a basic that is definitely worth adding to your wardrobe. 

This cardigan looks insanely comfortable. 

We love a cardigan that doubles as a top.
