Sweaters are an essential part of creating layers. Sure, we wear some styles on their own in the warmer months — and then team them with other pieces as temperatures drop.

It takes a certain type of sweater to be a true layering winner. We narrowed down the selection into three categories. Check out these top sweater vests, cardigans, and pullover knits that you can layer across all seasons.
