Sweaters are a fall/winter staple, so adding one (or two) new ones to your collection every season sounds good to me. (Then again, I shop and write about fashion for a living.) If you're searching for a sweater in a new colorway or print, I have recommendations for days. But before we get to the selections, I know you're likely keeping track of your shopping budget for the year. So here's a little secret: You really can find affordable, and adorable, sweaters on Amazon. For less than $50, you can score a cozy knit to wear while you sip your coffee on the weekends or to layer with a turtleneck for your outdoor adventures. We did our best to find tops with an interesting design that still feel wearable—and if you want simplicity, we found some everyday basics to boot. The only thing better than scoring an affordable find is receiving said find in 48 hours via Prime.
Alinfu Casual Crewneck Knit Sweater
For Wearing With Leggings
The kind of sweater you'll reach for without even thinking about it. The silhouette runs long to hug your butt, but will definitely shrink if you wash it and put it in the dryer (naturally). To keep it in its oversize condition, you should let it air-dry. Wear with brown over-the-knee boots.
Futurino High Neck Turtleneck
A Minimalist Design
You're not a fan of splashy prints or designs, so a more subtle one like this grid print is right up your alley. Reviewers said the patterned sweater is "thicker and of higher quality than expected." The top seems to run a little small, so size up if you want a less snug fit.
LOLONG Casual Turtleneck Pullover Knit Sweater
The Turtleneck Sweater
This sweater is your blank canvas. You can splash on brighter color with a handbag, neck scarf, or earrings then top it off with a cute, colorful trench.
Miessial Crew Neck Lantern Sleeve Sweater Pullover
The Pompom Sweater
White sweaters are a dime a dozen come winter. To make yours stand out, look for tops with special details, like this one with pompoms. The addition of spots give it a more three-dimensional look, especially if you plan to wear around the holidays. Wear over a slip dress with ankle boots.
Amazon Essentials Lightweight Long-Sleeve Mockneck Sweater
This sweater is on the thinner side, which makes it easily layer-able underneath your itchier wool tops and summertime spaghetti strap dresses.
Saodimallsu Leopard Crewneck Sweater
The Animal Print Sweater
Stay cozy and comfortable in this fuzzy leopard sweater. It'll make leaving your apartment feel more bearable when it's 10 degrees out. Style with a pair of moto leggings, a puffer coat, and combat boots.
MEROKEETY Long Sleeve V Neck Ribbed Button Knit Sweater
Best Ribbed Sweater
For those weird-weather days where it's somehow both hot and cold at the same time, opt for this lightweight ribbed knit. It comes in 21 other prints and colorways and features a sleek fitted design.
Absolutely Creative Worldwide Two-Tone Plush Knit Sweater
Best Two-Tone Sweater
The colors on this sweater are separated by a chunky braided design in the center, so you'll make a statement when you wear this with your favorite pair of jeans.
Goodthreads Cotton Shaker Stitch Deep V-Neck Sweater
A Wear-With-Everything Sweater
This 100 percent cotton sweater comes in a tunic-length style, which is great for covering the butt if you wanted to. With 10 various designs and colors to choose from, you'll have a hard time picking favorites.
Zaful Criss Cross Twisted Back Pullover Knitted Sweater
The Deep V-Neck Sweater
Who says sweaters can't be a little sexy? No matter which side this sweater faces, the plunging neckline will show off your figure. Style with your favorite jewelry.
Ckikiou Sweaters Batwing Sleeve Casual Loose Cashmere Jumper
The Gray Sweater
The kind of sweater you can wear with jeans when you leave your house, but can easily wear with leggings once you're home and hanging out on the couch. This fuzzy piece is textured and great for those who love neutrals.
Vansha Off Shoulder Sweater
The Halter Sweater
Spring and summer may be over, but you don't have to completely cover up. This sweater with a cutout across one shoulder is the perfect way to show some skin in the fall/winter while still staying warm.
MEROKEETY Long Sleeve Oversized Crew Neck Sweater
A Lightweight Sweater
This sweater comes in eight different colors and you'll find yourself wanting all of them. It has a round neck and comes in a lightweight knit material with a relaxed fit.
ECOWISH Polka Dot Mock Neck Oversized Sweater
Best Polka Dot Sweater
An otherwise sweet pattern gets a modern upgrade on this sweater from ECOWISH. The dots are oversized, giving this otherwise comfy sweater a cool feel.
Chang Yun Off Shoulder Knitted Pullovers Sweater
The Printed Sweater
Tired of your usual selection of cheetah or zebra print sweaters? This playful heart print is the perfect one to add to your rotation.
Chuanqi Open Back Pullover Sweater
The Open Back Sweater
For the sweater and jeans gal, amp up your everyday look with this cutout top that ties at the back. You can wear it with a lace bralette—or, if you're like me, and have a smaller chest, you can skip the bra altogether for no-fuss nipple covers. The top comes in 12 other colors, so take your pick.
Goodthreads Stitch Turtleneck Sweater
For Everyday Wear
Every closet needs that one basic sweater for fall/winter. This is it. The sweater is 100 percent cotton, and comes in 10 different colors; one reviewer said the top was "functional and easy to style" while another customer said the one caveat is sizing. The fit appears to vary from person to person, depending on your body type.
Sexyshine Casual Crisscross Sweater
The Unique Pick
Plush, cozy, and sexy—those are the three adjectives that reviewers use most to describe this crisscross sweater. You can purchase it in a solid color or buy one adorned with fake pearls, though the solids are easier to maintain. (Pearls will invariably fall off.) And every time you wiggle out of your winter coat, you'll know that the sweater's distinct back will be a crowd pleaser.
Exlura Off-the-Shoulder Batwing Sleeve Sweater
The Slouchy Option
This sweater is an Amazon best seller, with over 1,600 reviews; its fans rave about the warmth and the oversize fit. Personally, I think the baggy style (size down if you want it less loose) is perfectly optimized for all those upcoming holiday meals. Wear yours off the shoulder for a slightly sexier feel—but one that won't offend your grandmother at the dinner table.
MILLCHIC Long Sleeve Crew Neck Colorblock Pullover Sweater
For Brightening Gray Days
A color-block sweater that comes in a ton of color variations, so you never run out of options. The overall consensus on this top from reviewers: It's cute and beautiful, and at a digestible price point. If you find your sweater running on the larger end and don't want to exchange it for another size, take one reviewer's suggestion and tuck it into mom jeans.
EXLURA Ugly Christmas Sweater Pullover
The Holiday Pick
A chunky holiday sweater is a must-buy in the wintertime, so stock up now.
Foshow Womens Wrap Sweater
The Wrap-Style Pick
This chunky olive-green wrap sweater is a little dressier than some of the others on this list, so it works for formal occasions as well as days off. Style it with a pair of jeans or a pencil skirt to make it work for either occasion.
Chase Secret Casual Chunky Knit Pullover Sweater
The Chunky Knit
Your new favorite chunky sweater goes well with leggings or skinny jeans, according to those who already have it. That's cool, because we practically live in those two bottoms for the season. If you want to stand out, get the lilac color. If you want to blend in, opt for a gray.
MaQiYa Cold Shoulder Oversized Sweater
he Cutout Sweater
You run warm, so you like sweaters that give your skin a little more breathing space. The cutouts on the shoulders for this option should do the trick.
