We’re pleased to announce that the humble sweater has been elevated to a statement piece this season. Yes, fleece throwovers, chunky knits and long-line cardigans reign supreme. Layer on top of loose-fitting basics and pair with drop crotch pants or fleece trackies. To complete the Lounge Around look, add a beanie or woolen socks.

Stocking up on a range of these pared back styles will ensure an interchangeable foundation you can keep on rotation all winter.
