13 Classic Fisherman Sweaters to Wear This Winter

Not including the impending Polar Vortex part deux.

I've been obsessed with fisherman sweaters ever since the last polar vortex (and since The Row sent its version, exquisitely handcrafted in 90+ hours, down its fall 2014 runway). There's something so cozy and rugged about the loose fit and chunky cable-knit details. They also can serve as a nice counterbalance to more feminine garments, like a pleated skirt or lace-embroidered dress. Plus, you can sex up the traditionally Cape Cod-ish knit by pairing it with sleek leather jeans or a pencil skirt.

Fortunately -- since not all of us have the credit line for the adorable Carven pom-pom knit (sigh) or A.W.A.K.E.'s four-digit busting roll-neck -- the style does come in a range of price points, from DKNY's wool-blend pullover to Zara's boyfriend-fit version, all of which promise to keep us warm and enviably chic this winter.
