Sometimes, when the temperatures drop, all we want is to snuggle under a blanket and hibernate until spring comes. It sounds like a decent plan… until you realize it’s not actually possible. Sadly, real life doesn’t take a pause just because it’s cold out. We still have to face every day of the world (except on weekends).

This is why we need proper armor to protect ourselves from the elements. No steel helmets and breastplates, please — we’re talking about cozy sweaters. We’re looking for knits that will keep us comfy and warm in the cold fall and winter weather. While we’re at it, we’re going to concentrate on cute and flattering fits too. Why not? We’ve found 21 that fit the bill. Click here to shop!

21 Flattering, Cute, and Cozy Fall Sweaters


1. Our absolute favorite: The geometric color-blocking on this Ckikiou sweater has such a flattering effect, even on a boxier fit. It’s the perfect mix of comfy and chic!

2. We also love: This knit is distinguished by a single pintuck stitch down the front. We knew this sweater would be popular with so many shoppers!

3. We Can’t Forget: We love this Goodthreads sweater because it’s thick and warm, but it’s still nowhere near baggy. It’s relaxed yet close to the body!

4. Going Long This Goodthreads pullover, on the other hand, has a turtleneck and a longer silhouette, giving it more of a tunic design!

5. Get Toned Up For something more fitted, check out this Merokeety sweater. You can add buttons to make it more stylish.

6. Statement Sleeve A simple bodice can be seriously elevated by a balloon sleeve, as evidenced by this The Drop crew-neck sweater!

7. Bonus: Who doesn’t love some leopard print? This lightweight Amazon Essentials sweater comes in a whole bunch of other colors and patterns too!


8. Our absolute favorite: This Merokeety cardigan offers extra warmth through extra length as opposed to extra bulk. We love that the buttons are brass!

9. We also love: So cute! This fitted Belle Poque cardigan has wavy edges and a tall hem that helps highlight your waist. You will also find cable-knit details!

10. We Can’t Forget: A hood is one of the coziest things you can wear. This Annva U.S.A. hooded cardigan captured our hearts with its comfy-chic construction!

11. Beautiful and light: Are you looking for a lighter, more lightweight piece with a flowing drape? This Newchoice cardigan can be layered over any outfit.

12. Looking for short sleeves? You can opt for shorter sleeves if you want to avoid bulkiness. This bolero-style Kanky Kole cardigan is so adorable!

13. Double Duty: This Kate Kasin cardigan is great because you can wear it open over another top or button it up and wear it as your only top!
