Sweaters are a necessity for the winter season and belong in the wardrobe of anyone hoping to stay warm and stylish. Sweater dresses, turtlenecks, and pullovers seem to be taking the place of autumn's popular cardigan, as they keep the wearer cozy during these cold months.

The sweater dress is one winter's trendiest styles. These are great because you can look dressed up while being comfortable and keeping warm. At forever21, a navy and teal striped sweater dress suits the winter season with its cool colors. To complete  the look, add a pair of thick, black or neutral colored tights to keep you cute and comfortable.

Turtleneck sweaters are also an awesome choice because they keep your normally exposed neck extra warm. Several celebrities have been spotted in cozy turtleneck sweaters, such as Taylor Swift, who was recently seen wearing a black turtleneck sweater paired with a black beret for a photoshoot to promote her new album, Speak Now. Not only is the classic look reminiscient of the beatnik movement, but it is practical and well-suited for the cold weather.

Pullovers are a great way to quickly put an outfit together. When layered over a long-sleeved shirt they can create a stylish and professional look. At Old Navy, a variety of pullover sweaters are on sale for only $20, just in time for a last minute Christmas gift.

Take it upon yourself to fill your closet with tons of cozy sweaters this winter. With such a wide variety in style, color, and price-range, it is nearly impossible to not find a sweater that suits your look and lifestyle. Good luck, and happy shopping!
