Half-Zip Sweaters

Sweaters are a dime a dozen in winter, we reckon. Sometimes their sheer number means they become afterthoughts. Once the tundra-like temperatures hit, we often set aside our fashion goals in favor of simply staying warm. We switch to bulky, void-of-personality knits with their only job being to keep us from shivering. But we don't have to put up with unattractive jumpers in our concerted efforts to ward off the cold. Actually, half-zip sweaters are the relatively easy solution to the cold-weather problem.

It's the perfectly positioned zipper that makes them ideal for winter since it makes these sweaters simple to pull on or off. That same power means they're great for layering. Especially over turtlenecks or other lighter knits. Since we're only focusing on the super stylish variety, you'll want to make our picks your outermost layer with the exception of your winter coat.

If you've never searched for half-zip sweaters before, rest assured the search is effortless. All you have to do is type in the term in the search bar of your favorite online retailer and you'll be amazed at the results. With it being the holidays and all we're assuming you're preoccupied with other things. So we went ahead and searched for you compiling only the chicest options. From cable knit to colorblock and even cropped, there's plenty to choose from.

Once again we feel the need to brace you for the price points. Obviously, designer versions don't come cheap. (Even with all the deals currently infiltrating our emails.) If you're approaching this hunt like shopping for an alternative to outerwear, go ahead and drop coin like you would on a statement coat. Still planning on topping it off with an additional layer? Then opt for one of the lower-cost yet still fashion-forward creations.
