Erin found the coolest sweaters with special details so you can dial up the volume on your outfit without much effort at all.

Standout sweaters are a great option for date night! We also shared 9 gorgeous date night looks in this post that are as effortless as they are stylish.
Affordable Standout Sweaters
First up is this cobalt blue off-the-shoulder beauty by ASTR The Label. This is just one of those colors that looks SO good on so many women. The one-shoulder neckline is super flattering, and the length is perfect. You can leave it untucked or do a little half-tuck. Style it with jeans, leather pants, a skirt…the possibilities are endless. You could dress this up or down for pretty much any occasion! Is it the warmest sweater you’ll ever wear? Not even close! But it does layer beautifully under coats and jackets and chances are the heat will be pumping indoors if you live in a cold climate like Erin. It runs true to size. Linking a few other off-shoulder standout sweaters…all under $100.
Our next standout sweater is this twist-neck cutout ribbed sweater also by ASTR The Label. If you are looking for a sweater with elevated details, cutouts are an on-trend way to spice things up a bit. This style in particular is sexy without showing too much skin and it’s body skimming without being too tight. This exact sweater is available in limited sizing, but we found a few others that are very similar. Again, if it’s cold where you live, layer a blazer, jacket, or coat over it while in transit to your destination. It runs true to size.
Finally, chances are you’ve seen this sweater before if you frequent the blog, but it has been SO popular with our community and it keeps going in and out of stock, so we thought it was worth sharing it and a similar option…juuuuust one more time. The long dramatic slit on this ASTR The Label mock-neck sweater is a little bit edgy and a little bit sexy without showing much skin at all. It’s so unique and you’ll get compliments for sure. It’s simple, versatile, and doesn’t require any sort of special undergarments. Since it’s on the longer side, you can wear it with jeans, leggings or straight-leg trousers. You’ll grab for this sweater more than you think. It’s one of our team faves! It also comes in a dark camel shade that’s super pretty.
