They're classic, they're easy to style, and they keep you comfy during the chillier half of the year. For those exact reasons, sweaters are, quite possibly, the most-loved basic in a fashion girl's wardrobe — not to mention the knit toppers tend to polish off even the most casual outfits for a more elevated effect. As a result, sweaters seem to find their way into the shopping carts of the style set again and again; you can never really have too many. The good news is, that you don't have to spend a fortune to stock up on the staple pieces. Just head over to OAK+FORT for proof, because the brand's site is brimming with cheap basic sweaters that'll go with everything, and keep you chic 'til spring.
If there's one thing that Vancouver-born brand OAK+FORT does well, it's basics. Because of the line's commitment to providing shoppers with simple, yet luxurious styles at an attainable price, you're practically guaranteed to find elevated pieces that'll seamlessly integrate into your closet — without doing any undue damage to your shopping budget.
And just because the brand's offerings are basic, that doesn't mean they're boring or stale. OAK+FORT's goal is to create "tomorrow's classics", a balancing act the Canadian boutique aces by putting out pieces that are modern, but timeless, so you look ahead of the pack but never too out-there.
The brand message is clear as day in its sweater offerings, all of which are rendered in universally neutral shades and a range of unfussy, easy-to-wear silhouettes that make getting dressed easy. (A quality that doesn't go unnoticed on dreary winter mornings). It doesn't hurt, either, that several of OAK+FORTS knit layers ring in at well under $100, meaning you can stock up on the staples without feeling like you're blowing through your savings. Pick up a piece for every occasion — from office days to date nights to weekend errands — so you'll be set until warmer weather comes back around.
For the work week, pick elegant silhouettes like OAK+FORT's boatneck sweater, which happens to be on sale for the shockingly low price of $38. Thanks to its wide neck and subtle horizontal stripe knit pattern, it looks much more expensive. Pair with trousers and a slingback shoe to finish off the look. Or, opt for a vintage-inspired vibe with this cable-knit sweater, on sale for $68. The contrasting panels of different knit patterns give the piece a ton of added interest, while still maintaining a classic, super-wearable appeal. Snag it in the ivory shade and pair with coordinating pants to nail a winter-white look.
Off duty occasions call for styles that are modern spins on the classics. Select pieces with unexpected elements that'll pump up all your other wardrobe basics — like this cool front cut-out sweater that will totally reinvent your go-to night out look of skinny denim and boots. The $78 style is extra interesting in an olive green shade, which wears like a neutral but is far less ubiquitous.
Scoop up this tie-waist midi cardigan, down to $70 on sale, to throw on over boyfriend jeans and a slim-fitting turtleneck on busy Sundays. The heather fabric, ribbed cuffs and hem, and front pockets give the classic silhouette an update that takes the basic from simplistic to stylish. Plus, the hoodie and longer length will keep you extra cozy on chilly mornings.
OAK+FORT's sweater offerings don't stop there — you'll find retro-inspired sweaters, athleisure style pullovers, and more elevated cardigans to add to your cart, all at prices that are pretty hard to beat. Keep scrolling for some of the brand's best sweater offerings, all of which come in under $100, so you can stock up on the season's most essential style.
