As winter’s chill sets in, there’s nothing quite as comforting and stylish as wrapping oneself in the warmth of cozy knits. And this season, I hope my wardrobe is adorned with a delightful mix of classic neutral sweaters and unique, vibrant creations. The timeless allure of neutral tones like soft creams, heather grays, and versatile camel hues takes center stage, offering a sophisticated wardrobe that effortlessly complements any winter ensemble and the simple colors of the season. On the flip side, I love a winter wardrobe that is also punctuated with bursts of color – think rich reds, deep greens, and playful pops of blue. From classic cable-knit patterns to modern oversized silhouettes, each piece is not just a layer against the winter chill but a style statement in itself.
Whether opting for the understated elegance of neutrals or embracing the bold and cheerful appeal of colorful knits, this winter, let your style be all about finding comfort, warmth, and individuality in every cozy sweater stitch. The collection of cozy knits I rounded up below includes sweaters I have and cherish in my closet. As well as some truly covetable styles and some sweaters with stunning details and the happiest pops of color. It’s time to bundle up in one of these cozy knits for winter while you deck the halls of your home for the holidays. Comfort, style, and merriment. What more could we want!?
Cozy Knits for Winter
The cozy cream cardigan I’m wearing is a truly dream from Sézane. It comes in other neutral tones as well as some punchy hues, but for this classic silhouette, I was drawn to the timeless nature of the cream color. I love the puffy sleeves, enlarged buttons, and beautiful rid knit style. It’s just the perfect sweater over dresses, paired with skirts, or worn casually with denim. I styled it with my favorite Parterre dress (the Barrette dress – it’s not available now but hopefully they bring it back) and my beloved Gianvito Rossi boots. These were a very nice special gift a while back and I realize they are a splurge.
I can say with absolute certainty though that they are the most comfortable (I literally chase my boys while wearing them and am not uncomfortable) and marvelous boots ever. An investment that is worth it. Similar for less here: one, two, three, four, five, six, seven.
A Rainbow of Knits
A few callouts:
This multicolor cardigan with tinsel threading is my current obsession! Molly Goddard can do no wrong in my book. I adore the idea of it styled over this ruffled skirt dress or this ribbon tulle dress (this dress! I couldn’t love it more if I tried!). The tinsel in the sweater makes it festive enough to allow you to pull off a chic dressed up casual look. Wear this outfit to a dressy neighborhood holiday party. Dressy party + dressy dress paired with a neighborhood vide and casual sweater = the perfect balance.
The colors of this fuzzy color block knit are everything. I can’t get enough of the color blocking on this sweater – it’s there but subtle and the colors are season-less.
This bow detail knit is sold out everywhere but here with very few sweaters left. It’s easy to see why it’s almost gone – it’s so special, unique, and cheery + I love the European-esque novelty look of it.
A Neutral Collection of Knits
A few callouts:
This eyelash sweater looks like I could sleep in it – that’s how inviting and cozy it looks. A winter’s dream of a sweater!
I have this fisherman sweater in black, oatmeal, and ivory. It’s that good. I consider this sweater an absolute staple in my closet. It is yummy, cozy, such high quality, easy to throw on with denim or skirts, a breeze tied around my shoulders, and so beautiful.
This is the most ladylike cardigan to wear over dresses. I have it and swear by it.
Do you consider navy to be a neutral? I sure do.
Is there anything more comforting than a cozy chunky oatmeal knit in the winter? One, two, three. Style these sweaters one of two ways… One: with these jeans, these perfect ballet flats, and these sunnies. Two: with these jeans, this shearling stole, these booties, and these sunnies (in ‘havana smoke’).
