Getting out of bed each morning is an even steeper uphill battle now that the temps are starting to drop. While nothing is cozier than a fluffy down comforter, wrapping up in a warm sweater beats shivering while waiting for your morning coffee. In our latest Shop-A-Matic, we looked for the coziest sweaters to protect against the early-fall chill. From nubby knits to the return of the Nordic print, there are work-friendly and play-friendly styles to layer on when it’s still too warm for a winter coat. And then when it is cold enough for a coat, wear a giant sweater anyway, because don’t you know? They’re “in” this season (as though they were ever “out”).
Mohair Boatneck Sweater by Alexander Wang
Why We Like It: Try wearing this slouchy sweater slightly off-the-shoulder with leggings for a refined look that’s just as comfortable as pajamas.
Heritage Jacquard Cardigan by Banana Republic
Why We Like It: A university-ready cardigan is a versatile wardrobe staple for even the most fashion-fearing man.
Staring at Stars Cable-Knit Sweater
Why We Like It: A fitted cropped cable-knit sweater pairs perfectly with two of fall’s biggest trends: a full ladylike skirt or a pleated mini.
Printed Boyfriend Simone Cardigan by Tory Burch
Why We Like It: Amassing a closet full of lightweight black cardigans is easy, but try adding this eye-catching printed version. Throw it over work-friendly button-downs for casual Fridays or pair with jeans and a tee on the weekend.
Bouclé Sweater by GANT Rugger
Why We Like It: Preppy styles can come off as too uptight, but layer a contrasting plaid shirt underneath a printed sweater for an irreverent take on the trend.
