The crewneck sweater has definitely taken over the top spot that was previously held by the hoodie and has become one of our favorite pieces in the closet. You can wear it all year around and can pick and choose between the more subtle types and the more eye catching ones. Especially these days, where a mix of streetwear and high fashion brands consider them a staple in their collections, choice is far and wide, so we picked out some of our favorites that have released in stores around the globe this month.
