Maybe we talked too much sh*t about fall because it seriously feels like New York skipped it entirely and jumped right into winter. It has been frigid lately and I did not have any prior warning, so I’m like, not ok rn. Trying to shimmy jeans on and find the perfect sweater to keep me warm for my (also frigid) office is proving to be more difficult than I thought. One reason being that all of my sweaters scream “I blacked out on Wednesday and have since been living in this sweater for the past 48 hours.” And secondly, I need to revamp my cold weather wardrobe and cop some trendy, chunky knit sweaters while on a budget. I have rent, Starbucks, alcohol, and bills to pay for. What, like it’s hard? Well, it doesn’t have to be a struggle if you know where to look apparently. Here are 5 comfy affordable sweaters under $60 that you’ll want to wear everyday this season.
1. Topshop Supersoft Cropped Jumper
Jumpers are just another way of saying this is a really effing comfortable sweater. This style comes in cute colors like your basic white, gray, and millennial pink. Although the cropped style hangs at your belly button, it’s still long enough where you can size up if you want a looser style or you can just pair with high waisted jeans for a balanced look.
2. Aerie Oversized Chenille Turtleneck
Turtlenecks used to be fugly, but like, I guess now they’re kind of chic and make you look like a famous fashion blogger. Coolness. For a super stylish look that will make you want to buy matching hipster glasses and an overpriced hot coffee to go, you’ll want this oversize cozy sweater so you can indulge in wearing leggings all day, no excuses necessary.
3. H&M Fine-Knit Sweater
As if it wasn’t obvious already, this one screams cozy. Made from hella soft knit fabric, it features ribbed sleeves as well as a ribbed hem and neckline with a loose fit so that you don’t look
like Kanye West in Lil Pump’s “I Love It” music video boxy.
4. Urban Outfitters Plush Chenille Mock Neck Sweater
This style is a bit more fitted than the others, but it’s plush, so nothing else matters other than the fact that it feels ridiculously soft. It has a ribbed style that hugs you in all the right places and makes it perfect for layering under your fall jacket.
5. Zara Knit Sweater With Buttons
This color is everything this fall, so you’ll def want to wear this multiple times a week. No shame. It goes with anything and it’ll remind you of PSL’s every morning. This new take on the basic style features five buttons down the back, making it v trendy and perfect for candids.

We’re in full swing of every thot’s fave time of year, aka fall. With October upon us, the temperatures are getting colder faster than we can say PSL. In addition to the little black boot, sweaters are like, the best trend fall fashion has to offer. There’s nothing better than nursing your hangover, running errands, or even meeting your posse at the bar while wearing the world’s comfiest oversize sweater—with no pants, of fucking course. Sweater weather already has models we strive to be as skinny as (Bella Hadid and Kendall Jenner, obviously) strutting streets in baggy sweaters and cute heels, because IDK, maybe even celebs run out of clean leggings, too. If worn correctly, a bulky sweater will most def *not* make you look bloated af or look like a sack of potatoes. Just take it from the expert, okay? Here are the most comfortable, yet trendy oversize sweaters you can totally wear as a dress, because like, fuck pants.
1. AGOLDE High Low Hoodie
This pullover hoodie screams Kardashian in the sense that I’m almost positive every single one of them wears a hoodie as a dress at least once a week. This cotton high-to-low hoodie comes in two different colors (our go-to black and millennial pink), each with a drawstring hood. The asymmetrical hem provides good enough coverage to go pants-less in confidence. Pair with sock boots and you can totes go out in public in this before indulging in a low-key wine night.
2. Theory Merino Wool Off-The-Shoulder Oversized Sweater
Wool is typically avoided because it’s uncomfortable and itchy AF. I know beauty is pain, but wool is usually the exception because it’s just not worth it most of the time. Thank god this lightweight oversize sweater is designed with luxury wool—the shit that doesn’t itch—to keep you warm and v comfy in the cooler months. It features an extra wide neck so it can be worn off the shoulder for an effortlessly chic look while you Netflix and chill with your latest cuffing season fling. Order a size up from your usual so you can easily style, no pants required.
3. Ted Baker Oversized Cashmere Mix Sweater Dress
Nothing says “I’m an important fucking person” like wearing some high-class cashmere. With dropped shoulders and a tie front, this sweater dress looks perf over any body type without making you look (or feel) pudgy. Even after several vodka sodas, you can adjust the tie to hide your bloat and still look skinny. Pair with sexy thigh-highs and your friends will be begging to borrow your outfit next time you go out.
4. Zara Oversized Textured Sweater
Whether you’re doing the walk of shame or lying comatose on your couch, you may as well look semi-decent doing it. Opt for a textured sweater that brings a fun element to a carefree look by styling with a non-suffocating corset belt and ankle strap heels. From night to daybreak, you’ll be the last one standing in absolute comfort and style, two words that are rarely in the same sentence.
5. Opening Ceremony Off-The-Shoulder Wool-Blend Sweater Dress
For an option that balances sex appeal and classiness, this oversize sweater comes with off-the-shoulder sleeves and a ribbed trim for the ideal relaxed fit. Bless. The length comes to just above the knee, but you can def go up a size for extra comfort. Feel free to take this to the office and pair with your overly worn Adidas Superstar sneakers for something more casual. If you plan on grabbing drinks, elevate the look with block-heeled boots.
