When it comes to uncovering the most-wanted stuff for fall, there's a particularly iconic image that comes to mind: Meg Ryan and Billy Crystal wearing twin fisherman sweaters, circa 1989, in When Harry Met Sally. (Although Chris Evans in that cable-knit number from Knives Out is a more recent cultural reference worthy of an honorable mention, too.) Knitwear embodies all that's good about autumn; the foliage tones, the in-between temps. But, which cozy styles are actually worth investing in?
Normally this is where we'd say: That's where we come in! Except that, in the case of this article, this is only partially true. While we've rounded up 18 covetable styles ranging from cardigans to coatigans and everything in between, we have to credit the impassioned shoppers who left the detailed ratings and reviews that helped us curate this list. It's thanks to their honest accounts that we were able to unearth some of the top-rated sweaters on the internet — and, because of that, you'll be able to frolic through fall in a garment that's guaranteed to please.
