The leaves are turning, there’s a nip in the air and right now there’s nowhere we’d rather be than curled up on the couch wearing a cozy sweater with a steaming mug of tea in hand. In an ideal situation, that knit would be made of luxe cashmere (as would our pants…and maybe even our couch). So, to help live out our comfy fall fantasy we culled together the best cashmere sweaters on the internet, for all body types, budgets and styles. Oh, and did we mention there are multiple under-$100 options? Now, let’s get snuggly.

1. J.Crew Cashmere Classic-Fit Crewneck Sweater

Best Crewneck

This easy crewneck is one of J.Crew’s best sellers, but not just because it’s made from 100 percent responsible cashmere. The fit is just oversize enough to hang beautifully while still giving you enough shape, and it comes in a whopping 25 colors, so you’re absolutely guaranteed to find one (or three) that fit your style. It also comes in sizes XX-Small through 3X-Large, making it one of the more size inclusive pieces on our list. Oh, and you can also add a monogram for just $10 if you like.

Buy it ($118)

Available in sizes XXS to 3X

2. Charter Cub V-Neck Cashmere Sweater

Best V-Neck

The key to finding the ultimate V-neck is seeking out a neckline that’s neither too low nor too high. A plunging V shows more cleavage than is perhaps appropriate for work or dinner with the in-laws, but a high cut can actually make your chest appear wider (which is not what we’re going for). This light and easy Charter Club version hits in exactly the right spot, which is about five to six inches from the base of your neck—just enough to show off a little collarbone without giving away the whole farm.

Buy it ($119)

Available in sizes XS to XL and 0X to 3X

3. State Cashmere 100% Pure Cashmere Button-Front Long-Sleeve Crewneck Cardigan

Best Classic Cardigan

Everybody could use a simple black, gray or white cardigan. We like to throw one in our tote just in case the AC at the office is too high, our top accidentally turns out to be sheer, the weather takes a turn and so on. This long-sleeve cardi comes in eight colors, so if you prefer to mix and match bright hues or pastel shades over neutrals you absolutely can.

$95 at Amazon

Available in sizes XS to XL

4. Everlane The Oversized Stroopwafel Turtleneck in ReCashmere

Best Turtleneck

This turtleneck strikes that magic balance between being oversize but not too baggy, cropped but not too abbreviated and, whoa baby, is it cozy. “The slightly cropped cut hits me in exactly the right spot, just above my hips,” raves one PureWow editor, “and the neck can easily be folded over for a shorter mockneck silhouette if you want to switch things up. I’ve had two of them for going on four years now and they’ve held up beautifully with little to no pilling or fading.”

Buy it ($195)

Available in sizes XXS to XL

5. Naadam The Essential $75 Cashmere Sweater

Best Under $100 Option

This list wouldn’t be complete without this sustainably and ethically made staple. Naadam is all about sourcing its materials in a way that’s best for both the environment and every person involved in the production process, including the goat herders in Mongolia. And while you may be skeptical of a 100-percent cashmere sweater that costs less than $100, perhaps the 50k+ 5-star reviews will help change your mind.

Buy it ($75)

Available in sizes XXS to XXL

6. The Row Sibem Wool and Cashmere-Blend Sweater

Best Designer Splurge

On the other hand, sometimes that heavenly soft fabric is worth a splurge. And if price isn’t an issue, you might as well go for The Row. The brand, which is designed by Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen, focuses on crafting gorgeous staples you can wear for years and years and years. The PureWow editor who recommended this stunner (who admittedly bought hers at a sample sale) couldn’t overstate just how soft and luxurious the fabric feels and how, even though she’s petite, the fit is just the right amount of oversize.

Buy it ($890)

Available in sizes XS to XL

7. Universal Standard Essential Cashmere V

Most Size Inclusive

We were over the moon when we learned that Universal Standard, our go-to place for basics in sizes 00 to 40, was coming out with an affordable cashmere knit. The lightweight cashmere is both breathable and cozy, and layers beautifully over turtleneck tees, button-up blouses and cotton T-shirts. There’s also a crewneck version available in the same colors and sizes, if that’s more your style.

Buy it ($98)

Available in sizes 00 to 40

8. La Ligne Mini Marin Sweater

Best Striped Option

When it comes to classic knitwear, after the usual plain black, gray and navy comes Breton stripe. (Just ask Kate Middleton.) Wear this navy-and-white beauty with other simple basics, like jeans or a suit, or mix it in with some other prints, like wintery florals, polka dots or even some contrasting stripes. Did we mention is also comes in 14 more gorgeous color combos?

Buy it ($275)

Available in sizes XS to XL

9. L.L.Bean Classic Cashmere Open Cardigan with Pocket

Best Open-Front Cardigan

We like to think of an open-front cardigan as a robe that’s also appropriate to wear in public. With that in mind, we think investing in a cashmere cardi means you’ll get a lot of wear out of this layering piece. This flattering L.L.Bean style comes in nine color options (with more added each season) so you can easily match one (or two or three) to your existing wardrobe.

Buy it ($199)

Available in sizes XS to 3X, and petite

10. Naked Cashmere Campbell Sweater and Aubrina Pants

Best Matching Cashmere Set

One of the biggest trends of the past year was the rise of the sweatsuit. And you better believe it’s still going strong heading into 2022. Upgrade your college sweats to something a bit softer and a whole lot more grown up with this ribbed crewneck and jogger duo. Each piece is made from 100 percent cashmere and is fairly lightweight, perfect for cozy lounging. Note that some reviewers suggest ordering a size down (in both the top and the pants) for a more streamlined silhouette.

11. The Group by Babaton Ellipsis Cashmere Tank

Best Shell

This neutral-hued ‘90s-esque knit is intended to be super lightweight; meaning you can wear it from early fall through late spring. As you might’ve guessed, yes, it’s fabulous for layering, either under a blazer for the office, a dress for some additional warmth or even a heavier crewneck sweater. But it also looks super modern and sleek worn as-is, with jeans and a simple ankle boot—just add on a pair of Zoom-ready statement earrings.

Buy it ($88)

Available in sizes XXS to XXL

12. Reformation Glenna Cashmere Sweater

Trendiest Cashmere Knit

Normally, we’d advise splurging on more timeless cashmere knits rather than trendy silhouettes, but this stunning sweetheart silhouette is just too beautiful to pass on. And while the open, square-ish neck is very on trend at the moment (thanks to the Bridgerton-inspired Regency era revival), it will still hold up even after we’ve moved onto the next hot thing and will continue to look elegant, not dated.

Buy it ($198)

Available in sizes XS to XL

13. LilySilk Ribbed Pure Cashmere Hoodie

Best Hoodie

You’ll always love your well-worn summer camp hoodie, but perhaps it’s time you upgrade to something a bit more sophisticated. This super-soft sweatshirt is just as easy to wear but won’t look quite so disheveled on any last-minute grocery runs. This LilySilk version is super-lightweight, yet heavy enough to keep you nice and warm on a cool autumn stroll, and comes in three neutral hues that will go with anything in your wardrobe, whether you opt to layer it over a mini skirt and tights or a matching pair of cashmere pants.

Buy it ($149)

Available in sizes XS to XL

15. State Cashmere Oversized Turtleneck Tunic Sweater 100% Pure Cashmere Long Sleeve Pullover

Amazon’s Top Choice

Another piece by State Cashmere, this long and loose turtleneck is one of Amazon’s best-selling sweaters. It comes in five gorgeous neutral hues and reviewers love the longer length, making this an easy option to pair with leggings or to try a French tuck for an easy slouched effect.

$165 at Amazon

Available in sizes S to XL

14. Cuyana Recycled Cashmere Soft Wrap Sweater

Best Wrap Cardigan

What we love most about this ballet-inspired wrap sweater is the fact that the belt is highly adjustable. Two subtle slits at the sides mean you can loop it underneath the back for a cinched front and loose back. Or you can leave them hanging as an open cardigan. And, of course, there’s always the traditional style, tied tight around the waist in a neat bow.

Buy it ($285)

Available in sizes XS to XL

16. Vince Weekend V-Neck Cashmere Sweater

Nordstrom’s Top Choice

This elegant V-neck design is one of the highest-rated cashmere sweaters at Nordstrom. Per one reviewer, who’s purchased multiple colors, “The V-neck is just the right cut to look flattering but not so deep that you need a tee or cami underneath. The oversize fit is also just right. It layers beautifully under my lightweight coat when I need a bit more warmth. I'm impressed with the quality: The knit is slightly firmer than cheaper cashmeres and pilling has been minimal.” And with nine beautiful colors to choose from, we’re not surprised that multiple reviewers have come back to buy this Vince knit time and time again.

Available in sizes XXS to XL

17. L.L.Bean Men’s Cotton/Cashmere Sweater, V-Neck

Best Borrowed from the Boys

Sometimes the best way to achieve the slouchy fit you’re looking for is by heading over to the men’s section. “This affordable V-neck has never let me down,” says one PureWow editor, “and it looks so good with both leather pants and skinny jeans.” As for sizing, take your usual size for a true oversize look, or go one size down for a slimmer slouch.

Available in sizes S to XXL Men’s
