A bold sweater is a great way to breathe new life into your existing wardrobe, as it instantly adds polish to any look. Infuse extra whimsy into your outfits this year with a brightly colored print or pattern that does all the heavy lifting for you.

A classic-fit cashmere crewneck will take you from the office to drinks, from weekend coffee runs to cocktail parties, and beyond.

Sweater Trend 2023: Oversize Turtlenecks
