I’m a self-proclaimed sweater connoisseur — especially when the temperature drops below 50 degrees. I’ve been curating my collection of extra cozy and buttery-soft pullover sweaters for years, and there are a few things I look for when adding to my capsule. I prefer them to be roomy to prevent me from overheating, and so I can layer underneath them on cooler days. The fabric needs to be thick and soft — no one wants to wear a flimsy and itchy sweater. And lastly, they need to be unique. As a former fashion designer who used to design sweaters, it can be difficult to reinvent the wheel when it comes to a wardrobe essential. However, the details I look for when I’m in the market for a new sweater are silhouette, color, texture, and pattern.

If you don’t know where to start, I rounded up 10 of the coziest sweaters that check all those boxes and are currently living on my wishlist from brands like J.Crew, Madewell, Topshop, and more — and prices start as low as $31.

10 Best Cozy Sweaters

Zesica Collared Pullover Sweater





Reese Witherspoon’s recent appearance in a striped sweater has me ready to restock my collection with the nautical print, and I think this Collared Pullover Sweater from Zesica fits the bill. It comes in 18 stripe options, including blue and white, white and black, gray and black, and red and white, and sizes S through XL. It features a V-neckline with a collar, drop shoulders, and a tall ribbed hem and cuffs. The knit fabric is soft, per shoppers, and has a loose, oversized fit that’s great for layering.

J.Crew Cashmere V-Neck Sweater




You haven’t lived until you’ve owned a cashmere sweater. About half of my collection is cashmere — it’s definitely the style I reach for the most out thanks to being uncannily soft; I always feel like I’m being wrapped in a cloud. It’s the crème de la crème of sweaters, which is why you need to add this J.Crew Cashmere V-Neck Sweater to your cart — I know I am.

The 100 percent cashmere sweater comes in vibrant red, green, and white (perfect for the holidays!) in sizes 3XS through 3XL. It features a deep V-neckline, a relaxed fit, and long-hair cashmere fibers for an extra fuzzy finish. There’s a stretchy rib finish along the edge of the cuffs and the neck opening, and it falls a few inches below the hip. It’s recommended that you hand wash and air dry to maintain the plush texture.

Anrabess Turtleneck Sweater





What initially caught my eye with this turtleneck sweater from Anrabess is how visibly soft and chunky it looks just from the product shot; it was an immediate add to cart for me. The oversized sweater comes in eight colors, including black, burgundy, blue, white, and gray, and sizes S through XL. It has a foldover turtleneck, a relaxed oversized fit that falls about mid-thigh, and wide sleeve openings. Plus, it’s on sale for just $31 at Amazon right now.
