You already know that sweater weather is a thing once winter rolls around, so I'll cut to the chase: You need a new winter sweater (or a few!) to welcome the season. You likely have a few go-tos in your closet already, but there's always room for at least one new style, whether it's a chunky cable knit with exaggerated sleeves or a wool sweater to pair with your favorite slip skirt. Before you shop the latest options, make sure to Marie Kondo your sweater collection so you're left with only the ones that actually bring you joy. (If you need help identifying what to donate/recycle, base your decisions on the winter 2021 trends or let the pumpkin spice palette serve as a deciding factor.) Once you've cut out all the sweaters you don't wear anymore, you'll have room for these new winter sweaters. (And if you want to get them on Amazon this year? We've put together a list of our favorite Amazon sweaters for exactly that.)
