It takes a cozy sweater-loving person to know one, and, ladies, you're in good hands. Whether you’re looking to shred the slopes, tour the downtown markets, or snuggle up to a roaring fire, cozy sweaters are a must for this upcoming winter season. There are always questions of zipper or no zipper, fleece or wool, etc. Tried and tested, however, here is your guide to the coziest women's sweaters for this winter.
One thing learned from her book One Tough Mother is that you can always trust Gert Boyle Chairman of the Board at Columbia, to keep you warm. The threading of this coat use nylon and acrylic weave combined with wool for optimum warmth and durability. And, if you're looking to try out the moguls for the next run, as an under-coat, this fleece sweater has omni-wick technology to wick sweat away. It comes in both white and dark blue.
This unique marled knit sweater with a quilted lining will warm you up after the slopes, or for a brisk walk around town. Where it lacks in sport utility it makes up in style. This thick cardigan will have you looking rocking as you stomp around the winter months. The collar can be buttoned and converted to a turtleneck collar.
If you’re thinking of upping your winter spirit, the Annika sweater is a festive blend of colorful merino wool. This sweater is unbelievably lightweight and keeps you at a luxurious temperature. The sweater comes in two color patters, one maroon with orange and pink accents and the other black with white and blue accents. Additionally, the quarter length zipper is sure to keep you simply warm.
After teaming up with Alexa Chung for her second line, there's no doubt that Madewell has topped the charts in coziness. Chung has enticed us again with her irresistible design and durability. The Cassie sweater is a classic ribbed sweater that you'll want to throw on every time a new leaf falls. The sweater comes in a marled pepper and is crew neck design.
This pullover has the perfect combination of nylon and lamb’s wool (can you imagine what that feels like?) making it one of the softest sweaters you can buy. The collar is oversized and slouchy, giving you all the benefits of a turtleneck without turtling your neck. And, in typical Patagonia style, the sweater is stitched in reverse jersey stitch making everyone and their mom want to cuddle with you. The biggest downside to this sweater is, perhaps, the three quarter length sleeves; although, it does boost mobility and gives the sweater a classic modern look. As of now, it only comes in a claret red color, but keep an eye out for turquoise and greens.
