Shawl Collar
at Any Price

The regal heavyweight knit is definitely in its king era

If crewnecks are commonplace and rollnecks feel too fussy, then don’t overlook the shawl-collar cardigan. This hard-working sweater puts all others to shame—adding comfort, warmth and style, not to mention the insulating option to flip up that oversized collar whenever the temperature dips below freezing. They've been around for decades, and all your favorite movie stars have worn them, but if you've been overlooking them, now's the time to get in on this luxe winter staple.

They're often chunky, knit from thick, durable yarns and many of today's best ones come in some funky patterns. But that's the point. These are boss sweaters—there's a subtle power to them, but they're as comfortable as wrapping yourself up in a blanket. And best of all, they highlight your shoulder and chest, which means they work with any kind of body type.

Some shawl cardigans are light enough to wear underneath a topcoat, and others are thick enough to style like a jacket—it's easily adaptable for any weather and occasion as well. It looks as good with a pair of jeans as it does a pair of wool trousers. There's no wrong way to wear it. Feeling bold? Size up and put a denim trucker jacket underneath—it's a warm and unexpected look. We've selected some of the best for the season—take your pick before it gets too cold.
