Yeah, it’s cold. And even when the heat’s blasting, there’s always a mysterious draft wafting in from a window so a Zoom shirt alone won’t cut it. Being warm, stylish, and cozy is possible without spending a ton. Whether your aesthetic is colorful, preppy, minimalist, or somewhere in between, here are some great sweaters that cost $100 and under. (And should you need extra layers, add on sweatpants and house shoes, too.)

See all of our favorite picks below.

The Most Cozy

The texture on this will feel like a blanket swaddling your body.

The Céline Knockoff

Style it slouchy with wide-leg pants.

The Best-Seller

Amazon reviewers rave about this #1 best-selling turtleneck, giving it high marks for its cozy oversized fit, softness, and overall quality.

The Pastel Pick

Happy colors like pale pink, bright green, and yellow are exactly what you need to get through a dark winter.

The Best Chunky Knit

A vibrant color balances out a cable knit so you won’t look like you’re wearing a bowl of oatmeal.

The Most Versatile

For a cheap cashmere sweater, you can’t beat Everlane’s crewneck.

Another Versatile Option

A very affordable classic in a nice wine shade.

The Layering Tool

Roomy enough for a shirt (or two) underneath. Plus, a V-neck pairs well with a collared shirt.

The One in Mint Green

The Updated Tennis Sweater

The stripes alongside the contrasting pattern make this a nice alternative to basic black or cream.

The Dramatic One

Because those sleeves demand attention.

The Updated Classic

The Tree-Hugging One

Is it a desert sunset? A psychedelic beach scene? You be the judge.

When You Want to Be Trendy But Not Too Trendy

The tiny little flare at the sleeves is just the thing to make this basic less boring.

When You’re Not Over Millennial Pink

If you still can’t get enough of the popular shade, here’s another one in a checkered print.

The Perfect Winter White

Maybe skip the red wine though.

If You Love Pumpkin Spice

The Nautical Option

A discounted find for everyone who would rather be on a boat.

The Fuzziest Option

The Colorful Option

Pair with relaxed pants for chill skater vibes.

The Cropped Option

This will look good with any high-waisted bottoms.

The Best Color Block

The grown-up version of a cheerleading sweater.

The Boho Option

How do you make a cable-knit sweater less stuffy and preppy? Add fringe.

When You Need Cashmere ASAP

When You Need a Solid Basic

If you’re ordering some cheap layering pieces, you might as well throw in this marked-down sweater, too.
