The Ultimate Guide To Black Sweaters, The Hero Of Winter Wardrobes

Jeans, white T-shirts, black sweaters; just a few things you can really never have too many of. But when those frigid winter temperatures hit (and your lifestyle starts leaning towards staying in bed all day wrapped up like a cocoon), the latter is probably the item you'll live in most.
At the end of the day, a black sweater is core of your winter wardrobe because it’s the thing that you’ll actually wear every day. Pair one with a skirt and tights for a nighttime event (that is, if your friends can get you up and ready in time), wear a turtleneck style tucked into some high-waisted jeans for a casual Friday look, or simply wear one with sweatpants while watching a combined eight hours of Will & Grace reruns.
To ensure you have ample options to rotate from now until spring, we've rounded up 24 amazing sweaters to consider making space in your closet for — because this is a purchase you know you'll wear again and again, and one that will actually keep you warm throughout the next few months.
At Refinery29, we’re here to help you navigate this overwhelming world of stuff. All of our market picks are independently selected and curated by the editorial team. If you buy something we link to on our site, Refinery29 may earn commission.
