There’s no question that sweater weather is officially upon us. Fortunately, there’s no lack of cozy knits on the market right now to keep us toasty as the temps start to drop, including basic minimal sweaters, those with vibrant colors as well as trending argyle and Fair Isle prints. If you’re looking to stock up on some new sweaters this season, then this one’s for you. I tapped into our commerce strategist to get some hard data on what sweater styles and brands have been selling like hotcakes on Who What Wear this season so far. Naturally, I had to test-drive them for myself! It's not surprising that minimalist staples such as turtlenecks and fitted crewneck sweaters were at the top of the list (classics that will go with everything), but there were also some cool polo styles and pretty hues that are sure to make any outfit pop. Scroll below as I share my insight on the best sellers and shop them for yourself.
I am surprised at just how soft this $60 sweater is. It feels lovely against the skin (absolutely no itchiness at all), its drapey sleeves add a unique touch, the bateau neckline looks stunning, and it has a slightly loose fit so is comfortable enough to wear all day and night. It does have a slightly cropped fit so I'd recommend wearing a high-waisted skirt or jeans.
I really love this preppy polo-style sweater. I'll be pairing it with jeans on the weekend and leather pants for a fashion-forward look at work. While it's pretty lightweight (not sufficient for freezing temps), it's easy to add a tissue-thin turtleneck underneath when it gets colder.
This is one of our best sellers from Amazon. It has a boxy, oversize fit that gives it a relaxed, casual vibe, but the mock neck adds an air of sophistication. The light gray hue is also super versatile. If you're looking for something super easy to throw on with jeans, this is perfect. I recommend sizing down if you want a more regular fit as this is designed to be oversize.
It's not always easy to find soft cashmere for under $100, but our readers have been absolutely loving this one from Nordstrom brand Halogen. It comes in six cool colors, but I'm particularly fond of the vibrant red one for holiday season.
Our readers can't get enough of classic basic sweaters, and this cashmere Nordstrom one has been a hit in the past few months. It's soft and cozy yet smart enough for work. It comes in 12 beautiful colors, but I particularly love the blue hues seen here and below.
