There are certain wardrobe staples that will never, and I mean never, go out of style no matter how many trends may come and go. Among them are vintage jeans, black ankle boots, leather jackets, and yes, black sweaters. As a connoisseur of black sweaters myself, I truly couldn't imagine my wardrobe without at least several of them. They go with so many different outfits, whether it's a simple turtleneck and jeans combo or a cardigan layered on top of a dress, and just always look chic. What's not to love?
Personally, I have a few categories of black sweaters on rotation in my closet—my must-haves, if you will. Black turtlenecks, for one as well as a cute cropped knit to pair with high-waisted pants and skirts. Since I'm a big fan of the staple, I'm always looking for the coolest versions on the market and I'm pleased to share that I've found 19 such black sweaters that have earned my stamp of approval. So if you're looking to re-stock your staples, I suggest you scroll through the below edit to find one (or two) that suit you.
