Sweater season is here for the next few months, and if you’re like me, your collection could use a refresh. I have a few keepers but ultimately need to add some versatile, basic styles that I can wear for years to come. Think: neutral-colored crewneck sweaters, turtlenecks, and cardigans, ranging from fitted to slightly oversized.
As a shopping editor and someone who’s building a quiet luxury wardrobe, I’ve spent a lot of time researching and browsing timeless closet staples. While I’m not opposed to investing in higher-end pieces, I find that many of my go-tos like white tees and black long sleeves are from Target. Its fashion selection is one of the best for quality items that, as a bonus, come at a reasonable price.
After looking through Target’s sweater selection of more than 1,000 options, I narrowed it down to 10 styles that fit the quiet luxury aesthetic. Keep scrolling to shop my top picks under $25 with Target Circle's 30 percent-off discount.

A New Day Fine Gauge Crewneck Sweater
If I had to recommend just one sweater from this list, it would be this crewneck thanks to its versatility. The A New Day sweater has a classic neckline, a relaxed fit (not too tight or slouchy), and an ideal length for tucking into a pair of trousers or jeans. It’s also a great piece for layering, as you can wear a white tee underneath or throw it over a dress. One reviewer said that it “looks like it's cashmere,” while another noted that it’s “soft,” “comfortable,” and “looks more expensive than it is.” The sweater comes in eight colors, including five neutrals, and sizes XS to 4X.
Universal Thread Crewneck Cashmere-Like Sweater
This slightly oversized cropped sweater is made with a “cashmere-like” material that “really does look and feel” like the real thing, according to one reviewer. The ultra-soft style features a round neckline with ribbed cuffs and hem and is the ideal thickness to keep you warm without overheating. A “petite” shopper said it’s “the perfect length” for them, while another person added that it “could not be more flattering.” Choose from 10 different colors, including dark gray, cream, and brown.
Universal Thread Shrunken Rib Scoop Neck Sweater
For a more fitted piece, I’m eyeing this ribbed sweater from Universal Thread. It’s lightweight, has a flattering scoop neckline, and its length makes it wearable as is or tucked into pants. The basic long sleeve works well under jackets, slip dresses, and vests, as well as on its own. I personally love the black and white striped style for a timeless pattern, but there are also five solid color options to choose from. One shopper “loved them so much, [they] got them in every color,” and another person said it’s the “comfiest shirt [they’ve] ever owned.”
Universal Thread Mock Turtleneck Cashmere-Like Sweater
Turtlenecks are my favorite type of sweater (especially on hair up days), which is why I’m grabbing this on-sale find in a few different colors. The chunky turtleneck has a rib-knit texture that shoppers say is “so cozy” and hits right below the waist for a boxy but not-too-cropped fit. One reviewer shared that it “works great with high-waisted jeans,” while another said it’s “short enough” that it “doesn't leave a huge lump” when tucked into pants.
A New Day Open Layering Cardigan
Buttoned cardigans are great but open-style designs, like this one from A New Day, are easy to throw on over any top before heading out the door. Whether you’re going to the office or running weekend errands, the cotton blend sweater will keep you warm, cozy, and stylish. It’s available in six versatile colors, including olive green, gray, and black.
