The Best Sweaters You Can Buy On Amazon

Let's face it. With the shorter and darker days and the uncomfortably cold weather, the chillier months of the year can often be a little drab and dreary. That being said, winter as a season is definitely underrated. From skiing to snowball fights to drinking hot chocolate and getting cozy around the fire, there is no shortage of wintertime activities that make this season feel joyful. And let's not forget about the holidays. Whether you celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, or none of the above, winter is the perfect time to get together with family and friends, per Good Housekeeping. It almost makes shoveling the driveway and dealing with the constant cold worth it. 

While there are so many things to love about this time of year, one of the best parts is undeniably the cozy clothes. Winter means sweater weather and getting to wrap ourselves in trendy turtlenecks, cute cardigans, and ugly Christmas sweaters. If you've been itching to add some staple sweaters to your winter wardrobe but don't think it's in your budget this year — think again. Amazon has plenty of adorable and affordable knits available that we believe you will love. To make things easier for you, we've rounded up some of our favorites.

Solid colored mock neck sweater

When it comes to winter clothing, it can be easy to fall into the trap of only wearing neutral colors from grey to black, white to beige. Recommended by Teen Vogue, this mock neck sweater from Amazon will not only spice up your winter wardrobe, but it's a comfortable staple that you'll find yourself automatically reaching for without even realizing it. Both colorful and cozy at once, one buyer raved that they "would pay $100+ for this at a store like J.Crew or Revolve." Luckily, on Amazon, you can snag this pretty pastel piece for only $30 to $35, depending on the color. Take note: If you have sensitive skin, previous buyers recommend wearing an extra layer underneath this knit.

There you have it, folks. The perfectly cropped, mid-weight sweater that never goes out of style — what more could you ask for? If you are not a fan of this gorgeous pastel green, there are five other colors for you to choose from.

Casual knit pullover

You've seen this casual knit pullover time and time again on TikTok for a reason, and it's because you can never go wrong with a striped knit sweater. Recommended by Cosmopolitan, this timeless number can be dressed up or down. You can let it hang loose with leggings, or tuck it into a pair of jeans for a more fitted look. If you want to take things up a notch, pair it with a leather skirt and boots for a night out on the town. The styling options for this sweater are endless, and that's why we love it. Not to mention the price is very right — you can purchase this item on Amazon for less than $20.

Customer reviews range from "It feels super soft, and it is very comfortable" to "This product is sooooo cute! It is surprisingly high quality and looks high end for the price." If you are looking for a more slouchy look, Amazon shoppers recommend sizing up.

Crop knit cardigan

We all love our cozy, comfortable, and oversized sweaters that feel like we are being engulfed in a big, fluffy blanket. But every once in a while, we are in the mood to show off a little skin. Just because spring and summer are months away doesn't mean you need to cover up this season completely.

Recommended by Cosmopolitan, this lightweight, cropped knit cardigan is perfect for those indecisive winter days when the weather fluctuates between hot and cold, snowy or sunny. Its sleek fit makes it easy to layer with a bulky coat and other chunky accessories to balance out the look. One happy customer wrote, "This sweater has the perfect vintage look! I immediately ordered the other color after trying it on. Great fit, great length." Be sure to check out the other retro patterned sweaters available on Amazon before purchasing. Each one is just as cute as the last one, and comes with an affordable $19.99 to $24.99 price tag.

Balloon long sleeved sweater

Every closet needs that one basic sweater for winter, and this sweater just set the gold standard. Recommended by Teen Vogue, this chunky knit cardigan is a must-have wardrobe staple. Cozy, textured, and a little poetic, this soft sweater throws curveballs to basic winter dressing. The balloon sleeves add a feminine flair, while the chunky knit brings warmth. This chunky knit is perfect for a day of apple picking at an orchard with friends, or ice skating at Rockefeller Center — and you're definitely guaranteed to get a cute photo (or three) for the 'gram.

According to a previous customer, this sweater "looks and feels like an expensive designer one." It can be hard to find a quality knit sweater at a sweet price point, and at under $40 on Amazon, this piece is practically a steal. If your current knit sweater has seen better days, now is the perfect time for an upgrade. There is no shortage of color options to choose from for this wardrobe staple. For fall, opt for a buttery caramel brown or deep orange hue, and for winter purchase a deep green or a creamy white option.

Collared cashmere sweater

Nothing feels better than finding an inexpensive sweater in your budget. But sometimes, you are in the mood to splash some cash and splurge a little. While the holiday season is all about giving, it's also important to treat yourself — and the Christmas money from grandma has to go somewhere, right?

Recommended by Harper's Bazaar, this collared sweater comes in a gorgeous pale blue color and is 100% cashmere. This sweater strikes the perfect balance between casual and preppy with a slightly cropped fit and a dropped shoulder for extra comfort. Right now, this Club Monaco sweater is 40% off on Amazon, which saves you over $100 off the original price tag. Purchasing this sweater might still put a slight dent in your wallet, but it's worth every pretty penny.
