It's officially fall, and no matter how long you've tried to hold off, it's time to wrap yourself in the warm, soft embrace of sweater season. Chances are, half the items in the pile of knitwear in your closet mysteriously won't fit you the way you remember from last winter, and the other half will seem boring. It's time to go shopping! Here are 60 sweaters for men and women, divided by type, to get you started.  

Men’s

A thick, nubby shawl collar is a nice casual replacement for your sport coat as the weather gets cooler. Or, if you prefer a slimmer cut and fabric—like merino wool—try layering a thinner-material cardigan under a tweed blazer or with a collared shirt. Either way, just remember to leave the sweater's bottom button undone for a more relaxed look.
