I adore the look of a cozy sweater when the weather is chilly. Unfortunately for me (and my bank account), I am super sensitive to most sweaters, and cashmere seems to be the only thing I can wear without needing to take twenty-seven Benadryls! Cashmere tends to be pricier and slightly more high maintenance than regular wool or cotton sweaters, solidly placing it in the splurge category. Luckily, as winter is winding down, this time of year is perfect to shop for these timeless sweaters. Most are on sale, and as long as you stick with basic solids or traditional stripes or prints, you can get years of wear out of them. I’ve linked to several great cashmere sweaters below, all of which are ON SALE (!!), priced under $200 (including a fabulous one under $50), and feature timeless silhouettes and colors. This Vince crewneck I’m wearing is 40% off with both free shipping and free returns.
Aside from the cozy factor, I also love sweaters for their ease…no ironing, no tucking in, no special bra! For an effortless office look, I paired this sweater with classic slim, cropped trousers. I love the sliver of ankle; I think it gives it an updated and casual vibe. The peek of leopard belt adds interest, and the oxfords provide a bit of menswear edge. It’s not always easy to find a balance between polished and easy, but that’s the beauty of cashmere…the luxe texture makes even the most basic outfit feel special!
