Made in Italy with 100 percent virgin wool, this iconic Thom Browne knit takes jeans and a sweater to a whole new level.

The May sweater is oversized, with a polo collar in the green shade that isn't losing steam because it's that good.

8 The Masha Turtleneck Sweater
Favorite Daughter

As one commenter said about this knit, "Love this sweater. Super cozy and soft. It is oversized, so I sized down one size and it is perfection. Looks great with jeans and booties." We concur.

Best All Year

Alanui's Icon cardigan is done up in neutral shades of black, cream, and gray; is 100 percent cashmere; and made as much for chilly nights by the beach as winter weekends in Aspen.

A recent reviewer is obsessed with this zip-up, saying, "Such a great sweater to dress up or down! I sized up (M) for a looser fit - and I couldn’t be happier. Thinking about purchasing in other colors."

Sustainable Option
Single-Origin Cashmere Long Cardigan

Is it a robe or a sweater? We'd venture both, and we're into it. A shawl collar, front patch pockets, and small side slits add up to a chic sweater to wear in or out. It's also made in a family-owned Italian mill and factory that has been in business since 1885, which is very chic and sustainable.

Cotton and lightweight, this varsity-inspired cardi is ready for a bikini or roomy khakis.
