The Long Sleeve Waffle Crew Top by Seaton seems like the ultimate casual, cozy, and comfortable sweater for this winter. Made of 100% cashmere, it is a waffle knit sweater with ribbed banding at the crew neck, bottom hem, and cuffs, vertical seam detail at the back, long sleeves, and is semi-sheer. It's also available in three colors: driftwood, metal, and pearl.

The Shirt Snob has a love/hate relationship with ties at the front of the neck. We own a ton, but at the same time we just aren't sure if we like such a detail. But there are a few cute tops out there currently with such a tie, especially the Bell Sleeve Crop Sweater by Jamison. We love the sweater, so we'll let you decide if you like the tie or not! Made from a mixture of merino wool, cashmere, and nylon, the top also has a hook and eye closure at the front, short bell sleeves, ribbing at the neck, sleeves, and bottom hem.

Even though it's still pretty warm where the Shirt Snob resides, we can't help but get excited for winter when we find something as cozy looking as the Boucle Wrap Hoodie by Free People. This cardigan wraps with an extra long tie and a hood. It's made out of a wool, angora, and acrylic mixture, and it's available in five colors: wine, teal, black, ivory, and mocha. It's also quite short, so it'd look great with your longer tops.

The Back Keyhole Sweater by Laila Azhar is neat because it's keyhole is different than other similar tops out there. With this top, the hole is actually quite large with a band detail behind the neck. The sweater, made from a cashmere and silk mix, also has a draped overlay at the front, ribbed banding at the scoop neck, short sleeves, and is semi-sheer. It's available in cobalt blue and cream.

The Shirt Snob is rarely fond of a vest, but the Fair Isle Vest by Peace of Us is pretty, making us think of fall, and reminds us of so many other Scottish sweaters. This one has metallic stitching, a V-neck, no sleeves, knit banding at the arms and neck, and textured knit detail at the bottom. You can wear it alone or with a top underneath.

If you are looking for an extra long sweater this fall, the Kaileigh Long Cardigan by Joie is a great pick. It has six buttons down the front, cable knit yoke at the shoulders, pockets at the hips, ribbed banding at the edges, and a tie at the waist. It's also made from a combination of wool, cashmere, and yak. If you like the sweater but don't want something so long, there's also the This Magic Moment Cardigan, which is very similar but only hangs to the hips and is a darker color.

The Shirt Snob really wants a long cardigan this fall with a tie. Believe it or not, but we've never owned one before, and we plan to rectify that this winter. The Victoria Cardigan by Demylee is definitely one we are considering as it's elegant, simple, but still luxurious. Made of 100% cashmere, this sweater has a shawl collar, tie at the waist, long blouson sleeves, and ruching at the front. It's available in black, chocolate, and oatmeal as well as in oatmeal and black at Pink Mascara.

If you want a dressy sweater, the Tori Top by Samantha Treacy is one to consider. It has metallic stripes throughout, a wide neck, and 3/4 length bell sleeves. There's also a metallic lining underneath.

Last November, we found a sweater that reminded the Shirt Snob of one that our mother wore back in the 70s. And now we've discovered another one that reminds us of it too. If these two were mixed together, it would be that sweater! We can't help but love this sweater as it brings back lovely memories. The Hooded Pom-Pom Cardigan by Catherine Malandrino is a cardigan with pom-pom detail throughout, a single button at the neck, and popcorn knit banding at the front, hood, and cuffs. It's made out of lambswool and angora, so it's quite warm and perfect for the upcoming winter!
