It’s no surprise that cashmere is my go-to this time of year. I tend to feel the cold more easily these days, and nothing feels as cozy as cashmere. Because much of my collection was moth food over the summer, I’ve been slowly replacing my sweaters. I started where many of them originated from, my favorite department store, Nordstrom.
My philosophy is if you’re going to invest in something for the long run, choosing a neutral is your best bet. Here are the cashmere sweaters I’ve added to my wardrobe, and the bonus is they’re all on sale.
Nordstrom brand cashmere is a great quality and price point. When you can snag it on sale, it’s even better! Their Nordstrom brand cashmere is softer than many other brands that cost way more. These sweaters normally retail for $129, and they’re currently on sale for $79.99. This cashmere crew neck comes in thirteen colors, XXS-16W. I bought this soft grey heather because it’s a versatile classic and a great neutral for my wardrobe.
I tucked the front into some straight jeans, then added a simple belt, my super comfy Eileen Fisher knit booties, and silver jewelry. This is a basic uniform for me all winter long, and if you run into me at the mall, this is likely what I’m wearing in one form or another. It’s easy and comfortable, plus the cashmere feels luxurious. A cashmere crewneck also looks great with a skirt or dressy trousers. I love that this has set-in sleeves rather than a drop shoulder, so it has a more streamlined look.
I couldn’t resist this cashmere turtleneck for many reasons. It has a more relaxed style than the other cashmere sweaters, with side slits at the hem and more of a tunic shape. It comes in eleven gorgeous colors. I bought the brown taupe because, again, it’s a great neutral. It no longer matches my graying hair color, but it bookends nicely with my booties. I’ve had these booties forever and reach for them often because they’re nice and wide for my bunion and are water-resistant.
This sweater seems a bit long to tuck or half-tuck, so I’ll wear it out. The shape will look great with slim-leg pants or leggings, depending on the length of your torso. It does have dropped shoulders which increase its laid-back feel.
Here’s the same Lagos necklace as the first outfit, this time with the chain doubled to fill the neckline. I love its ability to change the length for different tops. This Vince cashmere sweater is also on sale, and oh my, there really is a big difference in cashmere! This a splurge, but I couldn’t resist because it’s marked down. It’s incredibly soft and has upgraded finishing details, which sets it apart from other brands. This V-neck is on sale in three colors, sizes XXS-XL. Unlike the Nordstrom brand, the small fits me best in Vince. I bought black to round out my neutral cashmere sweater collection and have the gray in my cart.
I went for a classic look all the way here. A column of black with ballet flats. I will wear this outfit over and over for many years to come…in fact, my shoes must be at least 15 years old! The Spanx ponte pants are getting a lot of wear this season. They’re a pull-on style with lots of stretch, and are thick enough to hold things in place, which makes them fabulous in my book.
