A good chunky sweater is a must-have for fall and winter. You can score this loose-fitting cable knit piece in two styles: turtleneck and off-the-shoulder V-neck. Both options are available in multiple colors and striped patterns, but we're loving the soft brown and deep green shades for summer-to-fall outfit inspiration.
A lightweight sweater like this Amazon Essentials V-neck is a must-have for any return-to-office wardrobe.

"The quality really impresses me and for this price, especially!" one reviewer wrote.
A step up from a basic solid print, this loose-fit knit comes in nine boldly colored stripe patterns. A few notable features include its soft, high-quality material as well as ribbed stitching on the turtle neckline, cuffs and hem.

This colorblock sweater features a relaxed fit, so you can keep it casual with leggings or dress it up with a sleek pant and booties. Finding an oversized sweater that actually fits the way you want it to can be difficult, but this crew neck rises to the challenge according to one verified five-star reviewer.
