Fashion aficionados would likely agree that no cold-weather wardrobe is complete without a varied selection of luxuriously cozy sweaters. From elongated silhouettes and ribbed designs to relaxed fits and wild prints, this season boasts a myriad of options guaranteed to elevate your knitwear collection and keep you stylishly snug throughout the cooler months.

Ahead, we’ve rounded up some of our favourite looks to consider adding to your closet, as the temperature continues to drop and the chill factor slowly sets in.


1. The Tunic-Length Sweater

When the air is crisp and the temperature is sufficiently cool for an extra layer but not quite low enough for a heavy coat or jacket, an outfit-making tunic sweater may be all you need to keep you feeling warm and toasty. Add a classic turtleneck and oversized pockets into the mix and there you have it – an effortless thigh-grazing knit that pairs perfectly with slim leg jeans.

2. The Poncho Sweater

If you’re searching for a throw-on-and-go piece with the warmth of a knit and the ease of a poncho, try a hybrid of the two – the poncho sweater. With a loose-fitting silhouette that is at once flattering and forgiving, you’ll have the added benefit of looking dressed up while feeling surprisingly dressed down.

3. The Animal Print Sweater

Pulling off a fierce animal print may not be as difficult as you think. From leopard and cheetah motifs to zebra and snakeskin designs, your biggest challenge will likely be choosing your favourite set of spots or stripes. By simply combining a wild knit with your favourite jeans, you’ll instantly liven up your look and add an unexpected element of excitement to your wardrobe.

4. The Colour-Block Sweater

If you prefer solid hues to bold prints and patterns, try an eye-catching colour-block design. You don’t need to be able to master the art of mixing and matching complex colour palettes to successfully pull off this look. A vibrant knit with contrasting panels will do the work for you, as you don one of the season’s hottest trends.

5. The Cable Knit Sweater

Cable knit sweaters don’t have to look bulky, oversized or even preppy. When you think of the classic cable knit, a heavy crew neck pullover may come to mind. However, this season, we’re seeing a different take on this closet staple – often referred to as the Aran, Irish or fisherman’s sweater. If you’re looking for a more sophisticated feel, opt for a style with a mock neck and cold shoulder that exposes just the right amount of skin to add a touch of intrigue.

Born and raised in the city of endless festivals and world-famous gastronomy, Sarah considers herself a true Montrealer. From the undeniably genius blend of squeaky cheese curds, fries and gravy to the breathtakingly beautiful European-inspired architecture, it’s easy for this city girl to find plenty to love in the place she is proud to call home. When she is not enjoying time with her family and seriously contemplating whether to order sushi or pizza while at home with her husband and kids, Sarah is likely pushing herself to the limit through intense boxing workouts and trying her very hardest not to jaywalk.
