Slipping into a soft, chunky-knit sweater is one of those cold-weather comforts I look forward to the minute summer is over. Whether it's a cozy turtleneck, a cardigan for layering, or a pullover sweater, I'm always drawn to slightly oversize versions with a relaxed fit. The closer it feels to wearing a blanket, the better! I've been looking for a chunky collared sweater that won't overwhelm my frame or make me itch, and I've finally found it. Old Navy's Polo Sweater ($29, originally $50) is so perfect, I'm eyeing the dark green (hello, holiday gatherings!) and black versions to wear with my favorite jeans and boots all season.

What I Like About Old Navy's Polo Sweater

With its dropped shoulders and loose fit, this sweater is oversize coziness at its best but still manages to be flattering with its V neck, fashionable collar, and cuff sleeves. I like to tuck in the front to control the volume and keep it from looking sloppy. The material is a cotton-blend yarn that's so soft, you might find yourself absent-mindedly petting your arm. It's also sensitive-skin friendly, so you won't be tempted to scratch or constantly sneeze with loose fibers floating and shedding everywhere. It's on the thicker side, so it will keep you toasty on chilly days, but you can still layer it under a coat.

What's Worth Noting About Old Navy's Polo Sweater

I got my usual size medium and didn't need to size up to get the loose fit I was going for. If you want a little less volume, you could get away with sizing down without it feeling too snug. It hits right at the hips, which also helps the looser fit from looking too big. You'll want to wash it on a cold, gentle cycle and lay flat to dry.

Who Is Old Navy's Polo Sweater Best For?

This piece is perfect for anyone who wants a soft and comfortable sweater that can be dressed up with jeans and boots or paired with joggers and sneakers. Since it's warm and thick, it's best for chilly weather. It is a bit too chunky to layer under a blazer or leather jacket and works better under a roomier coat.

Additional Details

  • It's made with a cotton-blend yarn and 36 percent recycled polyester.
  • It comes in three colors, including black and dark green.
  • It should be washed in cold water on a gentle cycle and laid flat to dry.
