The coziest – and coolest – cable-knit sweaters

This season, the classic cable-knit sweater has gone from closet staple to statement piece

Making the case for cable-knits: Yoyo Cao (wearing a cutout sweater), Jeanette Friis Madsen (light blue coat), Lois Opoku (pink vest), Camille Charrière (black coat) and Emili Sindlev (red cardigan)

A cornerstone of any well-stocked winter closet, the humble cable-knit sweater has long been a favorite of designers, thanks to its warmth, durability and intricate detailing. Lately, however, this quotidian piece has also become something of a micro-trend among fashion insiders, with everyone from Yoyo Cao and Camille Charrière to Jeanette Friis Madsen and Lois Opoku championing both classic and directional styles.

For timeless designs in luxe finishes, consider Re/Done’s understated woolen cardigan or &Daughter’s chunky turtleneck, spun from luxuriously soft wool, effortless additions to your existing wardrobe. For a contemporary take on this classic style, try Theory’s long-line belted cardigan – perfect for layering over everything from luxe sweats to blue jeans – or Nili Lotan’s collared cashmere sweater. Styled under an oversized blazer and finished with wide-leg pants and statement jewels, it promises to put a nonchalant spin on your everyday look.
