Every product was carefully curated by an Esquire editor. We may earn a commission from these links.

The cardigan sweater is simple enough of a garment to get remade every season with new fabrics, textures, and patterns. Some maintain the more classic cardigan elements, like a thinner, fitted merino wool or an oversized chunky knit, while others have spiced up the traditional cardigan with cool patterns and colors for fall 2023.

For those who like a more traditional cardigan shape, go for an easy lightweight one from Uniqlo or an autumnal one from Alex Mill. Some brands are playing with the structure of the sweater, too, with thick shawl collars, cable-knits, or textured fabrics.

Here, we rounded up a selection of 25 of the best cardigans for 2023. They span the range of fit and fabric—we've got light, medium, and heavy weights—across price points. They've all got one thing in common, though, which is the power to make all of the cool days ahead infinitely cozier.
