Sweaters to Keep You Toasty and Trendy This Winter

There’s no denying it, winter is here, and it’s likely to stay for more weeks than we’d care to count. The solution? Cute and cozy sweaters that will keep you warm until spring. Here are some of our favorite looks for the season.

St. John Plaid Knit Cape

This pick would make Olivia Pope proud. We’re huge fans of the cape trend, which, thankfully, doesn’t seem to be going anywhere. And, if the thermometer dips, this look is easy to layer without adding bulk. Pair it with slim-fitting black pants and riding boots for a polished look.

Vince Tie-Waist Cardigan

Let’s face it, winter means many of us are housebound for long stretches of time. We may or may not spend those lazy days in our bathrobes (no judgment!). Give your winter lounging wardrobe a major upgrade with this wool/cashmere cardigan by Vince. Wear it over jeans or a dress for a cozy and chic look that will have your neighbors talking. But in a good way!

French Connection Birdie Sweater

If you wear it, spring will come… Maybe not, but this parakeet sweater might make you feel a little warmer. We love the whimsy this embroidered birdie adds. Style it the same way you would a graphic tee – underneath a blazer with a statement necklace and jeans.

Pam & Gela Crocheted Sweatshirt

This top might not win the award for warmth, but man, is it hot! The crocheted yoke and sleeves are completely unexpected and totally sexy. Save this stunner for girls’ night out. Channel your inner rocker by pairing it with leather pants, stilettos and a bright lip.

Christopher Fisher Poncho

The poncho is another fab winter trend. Its easy-to-wear silhouette flatters virtually every body type. The merino wool and funnel neck keep you feeling snug no matter what the forecast says. Make the most of the three-quarter length sleeves by piling on some bangles. This sweater adds volume, so be sure to balance the look by wearing it with a slim-cut pant.

Drape-Neck Cardigan with Fringe

This cardigan not only looks amazing, but it’s also making the world a better place. Among other things, the label has a very strong focus on sustainable production practices. Plus, each piece is handmade. The draped neckline and fringe trim give this sweater a cool and laid-back southwestern vibe.

Mohair Plaid Front Sweater

This plaid sweater is a welcome change from the standard “button down” version we’re used to seeing. The tartan print adds tons of interest while the mohair makes it cozy. It can be styled with jeans for a more casual look or dressed up for the office by pairing it with a black pencil skirt.

V-Neck Leather Combo Sweater

Leather (real or faux) effortlessly brings edge and a cool rocker vibe to anything it’s paired with. The lambskin leather front on this chic sweater is butter soft, while the knit back and sleeves keep you toasty. This is the perfect cold weather date-night sweater.
