Chunky and cozy
This isn’t your grandpa’s chunky sweater! Chunky sweaters are perfect for snuggling on those cold winter nights. Choose a thick knit with a unique pattern, like a series of ribs or cables. Unless your guy is a big fan of neutrals, stay away from the oatmeals and browns to make this a more modern selection.

Thick or thin
For those chilly winter days and frigid winter nights, choose a traditional turtleneck sweater. You can wear this style in a thin cashmere for a dose of decadence, or pick a chunky knit for comfy warmth. Just make sure to choose a modern, fitted cut; a boxy turtleneck borders on professorial. To keep it casual and modern, pair the knitted turtleneck with worn-in jeans.

For those casual weekends or outdoor adventures, choose a comfy, warm pullover sweater. Wool works great for keeping warm in the outdoors, and blends are perfect for lounging by the fire. Skip the Bill Cosby look of wild, colorful prints. Instead, think chunky, fisherman-style to capture cozy comfort.
