The term “layering season” is often used by those that get excited when the temperatures drop and they can “really start dressing.” And while wearing multiple layers is an easy way to spice up your personal style and add some flair to your outfit, not all layering pieces are created equal. So, instead of reaching for the usual combination of oversized T-shirts and hoodies, try your hand at something fresh this fall: knitwear.

Whether a cardigan, turtleneck, or crewneck sweater, knitwear should be one of your main wardrobe investments this season. For those that need a little shopping inspiration, we’ve handpicked some of our favorite knitwear available online. Our selection covers all bases, from classic crewneck and turtleneck sweaters to more exciting graphic iterations. Our picks are suited for every budget as well, with price-points ranging between $68 and $550.

Particular highlights include prep-style finds such as Polo Ralph Lauren‘s bear-embroidered sweater and Beams‘ rugby-style option, along with more fashion-forward choices courtesy of Jacquemus and Han Kjobenhavn. Those shopping on a budget, however, can find more affordable and steezy knitwear from Carhartt WIP, Soulland, and COS.
