Sometimes you want something a bit warmer than a T-shirt but not as heavy as a chunky cardigan. Enter: the lightweight sweater. Wear it with nothing underneath for warmer temperatures, or layer it for cold weather.
This Amazon Essentials Women’s Lightweight Crewneck Sweater is a No. 1 bestseller in the women’s hoodies and sweatshirts category on the site, and it’s priced between $16.46 and $24, depending on the size and color/style. It comes in sizes XS through XXL.
This comfortable sweater is made from a blend of cotton and synthetic fibers, and ribbing on the cuffs, hem and collar. It comes in a variety of colors and cute patterns, like this colorful striped style .
The sweater comes in a number of solid colors, too, like this earthy mustard yellow.
Go bold with this gray animal print:
The sweater has a rating of 4.5 stars out of 5 from nearly 1,800 customers. In the reviews, people gush that the sweater is the perfect weight.
“Lightweight, but not paper thin or see-through,” wrote CSRGBG in her review. “Decent fit — as expected. Not a maternity top. Cotton knit with soft, smooth fabric. I am extremely pleased with this purchase!!”
Leslie S. marveled that the sweater’s quality is comparable to that of higher-end brands, such as J. Crew: “I am so impressed by this sweater!” she wrote in her review. “The sweater has a looser fit, and seems to be of very good quality — not thin at all. This definitely rivals a sweater that I would purchase from a J. Crew factory store, but at a fraction of the price.”
Looking for a chunkier sweater? This chunky knit cardigan is another Amazon bestseller, with over 1,600 reviews and tons of color options.
