10 Chic Animal Sweaters, and Not a Reindeer in Sight

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

It is officially cozy season, but luckily you're no longer stuck with reindeers and snow flakes when it comes time to layer up. Intarsia-knit animal sweaters have been found everywhere this year, from Opening Ceremony's super cool cat to J.W. Anderson's tongue-in-cheek owls. And this month especially, there is a whole slew of on-trend options that give new meaning to the words "Christmas sweater." Running the gamut from adorable (ASOS kitty sweater) to surreal (Tibi lobster knit) to plain old wacky (Raf Simons' dinosaur sweater from his final Jil Sander men's collection), you're bound to find a novel knit to crack a smile.—Nicola Fumo
