Best Color Block Sweater on Amazon
This adorable striped chunky sweater from Dokotoo comes in a whopping 37 different colors and has hundreds of glowing five-star reviews, with one shopper even dubbing it "the best sweater on Amazon,” bar none. Other glowing reviewers recommend choosing your normal size when shopping. Other tips that I found for you in the massive comments section? This sweater lasts better if you air-dry it!

Cons: Handwash-only; Air-dry preferred.
Customer Review: "This has quickly become one of my favorite sweaters. It’s so comfortable, fits as expected, and has not worn out or faded in the 2 months that I have had it and worn it about a dozen times." — Amazon
Best Cozy Sweater on Amazon
This is the kind of chunky sweater that you'll reach for on a weekly basis and without even thinking about it. And over 1,400 five-star reviews can’t lie—this sweater is near universally adored. 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 hand-wash it and let it air-dry. For an easy look for winter, style your sweater with brown over-the-knee boots and black leggings.
Pros: Runs true-to-size; Top-Rated on Amazon.
Cons: Hand-wash only; Runs long; Only comes in three colors.
Customer Review: "A nice comfy sweater that's warm! The fabric isn't extremely soft but it isn't scratchy either. If you want an oversized look I recommend sizing up one. The fabric is also a bit stretchy as well." — Amazon

The over 4,000 five-star reviews on Amazon can’t lie—this one is a real cold-weather winner.

It has pockets, which you can never have too many of.
