Cold weather can be a major bummer, especially when there’s high humidity in the forecast (can you say bad hair day?), but that’s no reason to go into hibernation mode until spring. Those wintertime blues are nothing a little style intervention can’t fix. That’s where sweaters come in. Crazy comfortable and totally versatile, they’ll perk up any outfit in seconds flat. Here are 24 chic styles to cozy up in all season long. And, oh yeah — they’re all under $100, so you don’t have to throw down to keep your fashion game on lock.
1. Topshop Compact Stitch Funnel Sweater ($80): Make the office a little more bearable by swapping out that stiff button-down for a bright knit. Rock it with culottes and sassy kicks or a pleated midi and block heel ankle boots.
2. ASOS Holidays Snowball Sweater ($63): Unlike real-deal snowballs, this pom-pom studded sweater will keep you cozy and warm.
3. Cooperative Shrunken Crew Neck Sweater ($54): Crop tops aren’t just for balmy summer days. A wooly interpretation of the warm-weather staple will bring a fashion-forward (and warm) edge to high-waisted skirts and trousers all season long.
4. ASOS Premium Cardigan With Fringing ($117): Statement sweaters are a non-basic essential that every girl needs in her closet. They’ll do more than keep you warm when the temperature takes a dive — they’ll keep your style game on lock all winter long.
