This post will show you the best places to buy sweaters — we’re sharing all of our secrets for finding the best sweaters online.
If I were to sum up my winter attire in one word, it would be sweaters. I can layer them under different jackets, wear them as dresses, pair them over jumpsuits, wear them over button-down shirts, rock them with leggings, the list goes on.
I probably don’t need to tout the amazingness of sweaters to you. Sweaters are for sure a staple item in every girl’s wardrobe, perfect for creating the best cozy outfits (and rocking the academia aesthetic this fall).
As we head towards the coldest time of the year, get ready for sweater weather by checking out our list of the best places to buy sweaters:
Abercrombie & Fitch
You might know Abercrombie & Fitch for their jeans and henleys, but they’re also one of our low-key favorites for finding cute, relaxed, and cozy sweaters on a budget.
Think cozy cream-colored cardigans and slouchy oatmeal waffle-knit pullovers, all for just around the $59 mark. Keep an eye out for sales — Abercrombie is known for having great ones!
Are you looking for sweaters that are cozy and fuzzy, but also totally on trend for the season? Urban Outfitters is the answer for you.
UO has well-designed and bold sweaters that have a slight bohemian hipster vibe but could work with any style. They also have a great line of vintage sweaters that are sold as one-off pieces — so nobody will have the same exact sweater as you!
Want to collect the trendiest sweaters for the season without spending a lot? Missguided is there for you.
You’ll be able to find every sweater you spot on influencers from Instagram for a fraction of the cost. You can stay relevant and on trend without breaking the bank. (Be on the lookout for their frequent sales to score as much as 70% off!)
Lulus is one of our go-to stores for basically everything, but we are especially obsessed with their incredibly cute selection of sweaters. If your style leans boho/feminine, this is the store for you!
They have an especially great selection of cropped sweaters and cardis right now.
Free People is what a dreamy sweater paradise looks like. Apart from their outstanding quality, their attention to detail on all their sweaters is spectacular.
I especially love their chunky-knit sweaters as they are some of the most comfortable ones I have ever owned.
H&M has stepped up their game this season, churning out high-quality knits at reasonable prices ($30-$50, generally) — that’s why it made our list of the best places to buy sweaters.
While you might not expect quality from H&M, we’ve been impressed with their offerings this year! They’ve been our go-to place to find those perfectly slouchy, cozy turtlenecks that we all reach for when fall comes around.
Everyone should have their own trustworthy, basic collection of sweaters. Uniqlo is one of the best places to start building out your sweater wardrobe.
Not only are their basic sweaters made of high quality materials (we’re talking actual merino wool), their prices are crazy affordable as well — think $39.90 a v-neck cardigan or basic crew neck.
Yes, you read that right — Amazon is one of our secret faves for finding surprisingly great sweaters at a super low price. It’s one of the best places to buy sweaters if you can’t spend a lot.
While it definitely requires reading the reviews with a careful eye, we’ve been able to find incredibly high quality sweaters that last for years! The two above are best-sellers with thousands of 5-star reviews, each one available in dozens of colors.
& Other Stories
Yes, these sweaters are a little bit more expensive than some of the others on the list (generally around $100), but & Other Stories has investment quality sweaters that you will literally have for ten years — so they’re well worth the extra up front cost.
Shop here for slouchy, oh-so-soft cardigans, wrap sweaters, and oversized knits that would look at home on the streets of Paris.
Zara is a master at incorporating various textures, colors, patterns, and unique shapes into their designs. That’s why it’s one of the best places to buy sweaters that have a fashion girl feel.
Not for the timid or basic, their sweaters are trendy and fashion-forward, and look straight off a runway. If you hit up Zara, you’re bound to find different eye-catching styles that will add *spice* to your wardrobe.
Aritzia is the store to visit if you want a sweater you can wear from class to the office in a flash.
Their sweaters are a little bit on the pricey side, but they’re worth every penny you’re investing. Their styles are timeless and classic, and will easily become your go-tos for every outfit.
Those are the best places to buy sweaters!
