Half-zip sweaters are simultaneously effortless and polished, and the best part is they come in a range of colors and textures across all budgets. Many also have eye-catching details like oversized collars or ribbed waists that set them apart from your run-of-the-mill sweater fare. Ahead, 21 of the best half-zip sweaters to shop now.
