With the coziness of a turtleneck in a light and sleek build, the
best mock neck sweaters are a great transition piece between seasons, as well as a versatile minimalist layer for year-round wear. You can find chunky, oversized mock neck sweaters that you’ll pull on with your favorite leggings and boots, as well as fitted sweaters — some with short sleeves — that feel less bulky under cardigans and blazers. Likewise, mock neck bodysuits can be worn with everything in your closet right now; they slip into skinny jeans and party skirts alike, and are so versatile you may as well consider them a basic.
A detailed mock neck top — something with a ruffled neck or pattern — is a dressy alternative that will keep you warm while looking elegant, but, of course, you can still wear it with a good pair of jeans. For a statement sweater, consider an unexpected silhouette that looks dramatic (yet secretly feels like a sweatshirt). You can wear a longer tunic with jeans and mules or pair it with leather leggings and some high-impact heels for a fierce cold-weather ensemble. And, of course, there is always the sweater dress, which you can wear with everything from sandals to over-the-knee boots.
Wherever you’re headed, these great sweaters are the perfect way to look effortlessly chic and feel impossibly cozy.
1 The That Amazon Shoppers Rave About Classic Mock Neck Sweater
Shoppers love this
mock neck sweater, with one calling it a "terrific wardrobe staple, a must-have." It fits like a dream because its cut follows the body without clinging, and the knit has just enough drape. Made from a blend of cotton and modal with polyester, it feels ultrafine but is easy to care for with a machine wash and simple air dry. "This is a great lightweight sweater that can be worn many ways. It's thick enough to wear on its own, or works great for layering in extra cold weather," one shopper noted. "It is simple and classic, the material is soft and comfortable, and it appears well made. The mock neck is well done and not constricting." Pick it up in a neutral hue like light gray, white, or camel, or go bolder with red, burgundy, or navy and white stripes.

Several fans noted that they found it best to size up, especially if you prefer more wiggle room at the neck or additional length.

thin mock neck top will layer easily too, with a fitted cut and half sleeves that are less likely to feel bulky under jackets. "Perfect every day mock neck," a reviewer commented. "Love how versatile this piece is." It's also a worthy alternative to a T-shirt since it has longer half sleeves and still feels fairly light, owing to a silky polyester-rayon blend with spandex. "Material is super soft and not too heavy but also not sheer at all," another shopper noted, just keep in mind that it does need to be line dried.

The trendy lantern sleeves aren’t too big, and they provide a relaxed counterpoint to the lean ribbed knit and sleek mock neck. The viscose and nylon knit is smooth yet substantial and washes well — hand-washing is recommended, but it can go on a delicate machine cycle, according to several reviews. (Make sure it air dries to keep the knit fine.) Available colors: 10 Available sizes: Small – X-Large 7 A Fun Plaid Topper To Add Your Pop Of Pattern
