After months of Zoom meetings with colleagues, it’s become clear that all Vogue editors have at least one covetable lightweight sweater in their repertoire— be it a striped pullover, a slinky ’90s-inspired polo sweater, or a fitted cardigan.

Lightweight sweaters have become the unofficial-official work-from-home uniform, polished enough for your coworkers’ eyes, comfortable enough for all-day wear while at home, and just thick enough to enough to provide the right amount of warmth in transitional weather.

Open a window ajar, and the first inkling of autumn's chill is in the air. While much of life will continue indoors this fall, the best lightweight sweaters currently on the market make for a wonderful (and layerable!) closet staple for the great indoors too. Here, 24 of the best lightweight sweaters to stock up on now.

Polos

From slinky but buttoned-up knits to options with low-lying necklines, the ’90s-inspired polo sweater is a transitional style that can be worn in a variety of ways. The minimalist sweater tucks nicely into skirts and trousers, layers well under jackets, and serves as the ideal throw-on while working from home.

Pullovers

A roundup of the best lightweight sweaters would be remiss without the consummate sweater silhouette— the pullover. Vogue editors particularly love them when they’re striped. Color-blocking, stripes, and tie-dye make an old classic feel modern.
