·9 min read

The leaves are turning, there’s a nip in the air and right now there’s nowhere we’d rather be than curled up on the couch wearing a cozy sweater with a steaming mug of tea in hand. In an ideal situation, that knit would be made of luxe cashmere (as would our pants…and maybe even our couch). So, to help live-out our comfy fall fantasy we culled together the best cashmere sweaters on the internet, for all body types, budgets and styles. Oh, and did we mention there are multiple under-$100 options? Now, let’s get snuggly.

1. Best Crewneck

State Cashmere Essential Crewneck Sweater 100% Pure Cashmere Long Sleeve Pullover

This is one of Amazon’s top-selling cashmere pieces. Reviewers rave about the soft, lightweight feel and flattering fit. While some colors will set you back $110, most are under 100 bucks, making this one sweater that’s worth buying in multiples. Note: Some reviewers recommend going one size up for a less-fitted silhouette and a little more wiggle room.

From $88 at Amazon

Available in sizes XS to XL

2. Best V-Neck

Charter Cub V-Neck Cashmere Sweater

The key to finding the ultimate V-neck is seeking out a neckline that’s neither too low nor too high. A plunging V shows more cleavage than is perhaps appropriate for work or dinner with the in-laws, but a high cut can actually make your chest appear wider (which is not what we’re going for). This light and easy Charter Club version hits in exactly the right spot, which is just about five to six inches from the base of your neck—just enough to show off a little collarbone without giving away the whole farm.

Buy it ($149)

Available in sizes XS to XL and 0X to 3X

3. Best Classic Cardigan

Jennie Liu 100% Cashmere Button Front Long Sleeve Crewneck Cardigan

Everybody could use a simple black, gray or white cardigan. We like to throw one in our tote just in case the AC at the office is too high, your top accidentally turns out to be sheer, the weather takes a turn, and so on. This long-sleeve cardi comes in 20 colors, so if you prefer to mix and match bright hues or pastel shades over neutrals you absolutely can.

From $128 at Amazon

Available in sizes XS to 3X, and petite

4. Best Turtleneck

Everlane The Cashmere Square Turtleneck

This turtleneck has found that magic balance between being oversize but not too baggy, cropped but not too abbreviated and, whoa baby, is it cozy. One PureWow editor admitted to owning this sweater in three colors, with an additional shade making an appearance on her 2020 holiday wishlist. “The slightly cropped cut hits me in exactly the right spot, just above my hips, and the neck can easily be folded over for a shorter mockneck silhouette, if you want to switch things up. I’ve had two of them for going on four years now and they’ve held up beautifully with little to no pilling or fading.”

Buy it ($165)

Available in sizes XXS to XL

5. Best Under $100 Option

Naadam The Essential $75 Cashmere Sweater

This list wouldn’t be complete without this sustainably and ethically made staple. Naadam is all about sourcing its materials in a way that’s best for both the environment and every person involved in the production process, including the goat herders in Mongolia. And while you may be skeptical of a 100-percent cashmere sweater that costs less than $100, perhaps the 50k+ 5-star reviews will help change your mind.

Buy it ($75)

Available in sizes XXS to XXL

6. Best Designer Splurge

The Row Sibel Oversize Wool-Cashmere Blend Sweater

On the other hand, sometimes that heavenly soft fabric is worth a splurge. And if price isn’t an issue, you might as well go for The Row. The brand, which is designed by Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen, focuses on crafting gorgeous staples you can wear for years and years and years. The PureWow editor who recommended this stunner (who admittedly bought hers at a sample sale) couldn’t overstate just how soft and luxurious the fabric feels and how, even though she’s petite, the fit is just the right amount of oversize.

Buy it ($890)

Available in sizes XS to XL

7. Best Striped Option

360 Cashmere Laurel Striped Puff-Shoulder Cashmere Sweater

When it comes to classic knitwear, after the usual plain black, gray and navy comes Breton stripe. (Just ask Kate Middleton.) Wear this navy-and-white beauty with other simple basics, like jeans or a suit, or mix it in with some other prints, like wintery florals, polka dots or even some contrasting stripes.

Buy it ($310)

Available in sizes XS to L

8. Best Open-Front Cardigan

L.L.Bean Classic Cashmere Open Cardigan with Pocket

We like to think of an open-front cardigan as a robe that’s also appropriate to wear in public. With that in mind, we think investing in a cashmere cardi means you’ll get a lot of wear out of this layering piece. This flattering L.L.Bean style comes in 12 color options (with more added each season) so you can easily match one (or two or three) to your existing wardrobe.

Buy it ($199)

Available in sizes XS to 3X, and petite

9. Best Matching Cashmere Set

Naked Cashmere Campbell Sweater and Aubrina Pants

One of the biggest trends early in 2020 was the rise of the sweatsuit. And you better believe it’s currently poised for a major comeback this fall/winter. Upgrade your college sweats to something a bit softer and a whole lot more grown up with this ribbed crewneck and jogger duo. Each piece is made from 100 percent cashmere and is fairly lightweight, perfect for cozy lounging. Note: Some reviewers suggest ordering a size down (in both the top and the pants) for a more streamlined silhouette.

Available in sizes XS to L

10. Best Statement Sleeve

Frances Austen Lantern Sleeve Sweater

Sometimes you just want a little extra detail to make a basic knit feel special. The loose sleeves and fitted cuffs on this crewneck accomplish just that. Even better when those special details are woven from super-cozy 100-percent Italian cashmere. “It’s the thickest ply cashmere I’ve ever felt and it’s so warm,” raved one PureWow editor. No, that level of warmth and comfort doesn’t come cheap, but higher quality cashmere like this is much less likely to pill or fade in color over time, meaning you can pull this beauty out year after year knowing it will still look and feel as luxurious as the day you bought it.

Buy it ($445)

Available in sizes XS to L

11. Best Shell

Saks Fifth Avenue Collection Cashmere Turtleneck Shell

This neutral-hued ‘90s-esque knit is intended to be super lightweight; meaning you can wear it from early fall through late spring. As you might’ve guessed, yes, it’s fabulous for layering, either under a blazer for the office, a dress for some additional warmth or even a heavier crewneck sweater. But it also looks super modern and sleek worn as-is, with jeans and a simple ankle boot—just add on a pair of Zoom-ready statement earrings.

Buy it ($195)

Available in sizes XS to XL

12. Amazon’s Top Choice

State Cashmere Oversized Turtleneck Tunic Sweater 100% Pure Cashmere Long Sleeve Pullover

Another piece by State Cashmere, this long and loose turtleneck is one of Amazon’s best-selling sweaters. It comes in five gorgeous neutral hues and reviewers love the longer length, making this an easy option to pair with leggings or to try a French tuck for an easy slouched effect.

From $102 at Amazon

Available in sizes S to XL

13. Nordstrom’s Top Choice

Theory Karinello Funnel Neck Cashmere Sweater

This chocolate-brown knit has more 5-star reviews than any other cashmere sweater on Nordstrom’s site. Reviewers rave about the gorgeous color (which works for all skin tones) and the impossibly soft feel of the fabric. They also note the slightly slouchy cut, which helps maintain some shape without being too fitted or highlighting any lumps or bumps you may be self-conscious about. The not-quite-a-turtleneck neckline is also incredibly flattering on just about every body type, making this a triple threat knit—the color! the feel! the cut!—if we’ve ever seen one.

Buy it ($425)

Available in sizes XS to XL

14. Best Neck Detail

Lark & Ro Women's Sweaters Ruffle Cashmere Sweater

Lark & Ro has multiple beautiful cashmere options available on Amazon, but it’s this fun little number that we kept coming back to. We love the combination of the casual Henley neck dressed up with a feminine ruffle that’s repeated at the sleeves. Well, that and the under-$80 price tag. While we’re partial to the cherry red color, it also comes in black, heather gray and charcoal. A few reviewers suggested sizing up for a better fit, especially if you're in between sizes or are hoping to layer a shirt or cami underneath.

From $74 at Amazon

Available in sizes XS to XL

15. Best Borrowed from the Boys

J.Crew Everyday Cashmere V-Neck Sweater

Sometimes the best way to achieve the slouchy fit you’re looking for is by heading over to the men’s section. “This under-$120 V-neck has never let me down,” says one PureWow editor, “and looks so good with both leather pants and skinny jeans.” As for sizing, take your usual size for a true oversize look, or go one size down for a slimmer slouch.

Buy it ($118)

Available in sizes XS to XXL Mens

16. Best Wrap Cardigan

Cuyana Recycled Cashmere Soft Wrap Sweater

What we love most about this ballet-inspired wrap sweater is the fact that the belt is highly adjustable. Two subtle slits at the sides mean you can loop it underneath the back for a cinched front and loose back. Or you can leave them hanging as an open cardigan. And, of course, there’s always the traditional style, tied tight around the waist in a neat bow.

Buy it ($245)

Available in sizes XS to XL

17. Best Hoodie

Naadam Cashmere Hoodie

You’ll always love your well-worn summer camp hoodie, but perhaps it’s time you upgrade to something a bit more sophisticated? This super-soft sweatshirt is just as easy to wear but won’t look quite so disheveled on any last-minute grocery runs. Naadam describes the medium-weight fabric as “heavenly soft” 100 percent cashmere, and based on reviews, it truly lives up the name. “I love how soft these hoodies are,” says one superfan. “They are just the right weight and are extremely comfortable.”

Buy it ($175)

Available in sizes XXS to 3X
