Name a more iconic winter piece than warm, roomy sweaters. (We’ll wait.) Oversized knit sweaters are a classic staple, low-key dramatic, but, most of all, comfortable to the core. Since winter is here to stay for a while, we hunted for big-time knits in silhouettes that envelope the body. Get ready to add some major statement pieces to your existing collection of sweaters.
The comfort of a roomy sweater is undeniable. Whether it’s a cable-knit sweater hand-knit by your grandma or the byproduct of some hasty weekend retail therapy at Anthropologie, a wearable tent of snuggly softness is worth trying on for size. Plus, nothing looks better when you’re curled up by a warm fire with a cup of hot cocoa and a good book. So, let’s get down to the nitty-gritty with 33 of the comfiest oversized knit sweaters ahead — each handily broken down by style category from balloon-sleeve to turtleneck.
