This season we're seeing tons of sweaters updated with fancy sleeves, from ruffles to bloused silhouettes. I love that these styles are as cozy as they are cute! And while they might not be the most practical (no slurping soup, please), they definitely make a dramatic fashion statement at any holiday get-together. Here I've rounded up 8 of my favorites from just $20 to get the look.

This sweater is giving me all the feminine, romantic vibes. Makes you just want to cozy up with a good book and some hot cocoa. But don't hide at home in this top; wear it to brunch with your girlfriends or even the office with some black ankle pants.

If ruffles aren't your thing, this tie-sleeve style is a unique twist on the typical sweater. It's subtle and unexpected.

5. Ruffle Chenille Sweater, nordstrom.com (also in teal)
It doesn't get much better than super-soft chenille, one of the season's trendiest fabrics, and a few expertly placed ruffles! Pair this with your favorite ripped jeans and ankle boots or leather leggings and heels.

7. Chelsea28 Ruffle Sleeve Sweater (2 colors), nordstrom.com
This gorgeous creation combines ruffles with cut-outs for a super sultry - yet totally wearable - look. Dress this sweater up or down, but don't add much...it's pretty much perfect as is.
