As the winter season wraps up, it’s a good idea to take advantage of all the sales as stores desperately try to unload their winter stock. This is good news for you, especially if you happen to have selective taste and love luxurious clothes…but not the prices that are associated with them. Cashmere is versatile and stylish for any occasion, whether you wear it to work, to the theater, or to a Sunday brunch. So go ahead- stock up on these incredible pieces for next winter!
Writer’s Top Pick: Lands’ End Cashmere
For women and for men, Lands’ End cashmere sweaters are affordable and comfortable. Best of all: their cashmere looks just as nice as some of the more high-end, pricier pieces. Lands’ End has 2 current cashmere sweater styles for women. The first is a Cashmere long sleeve tee-neck sweater. This style comes in 3 different colors (ivory, black, and navy). This style is great with designer jeans for a casual Saturday night date to the movies or a wine bar for some drinks. For a more flirty style, you might like the cashmere bow sweater, which features a tee-shirt neck with a fashionable bow along the neck in the front.
Other great options:
Talbot’s clothing line features classic items that never go out of style. While their items typically are pricier than some other stores, their sales make their clothing much more affordable when you’re on a budget. For a classic style with which you can never go wrong, try the boyfriend sweater. The boyfriend sweater is incredibly versatile from professional to casual. On a night when you’re going out for drinks after work, you can wear a sweater with dressy pants or a nice skirt and bring jeans or a casual skirt to change into.
If pullover sweaters aren’t your thing, consider a cardigan. I have yet to find a better deal for cashmere than this. While this isn’t “true” cashmere, it is a Pima cotton/cashmere blend that makes this piece just a touch more versatile than the rest, as it can be worn through spring and summer, whereas some of these other pieces need to be reserved strictly for fall and winter.
Talbot’s Boyfriend Cardigan can be worn in any season. Light spring colors make this a nice choice to put on over a tank top or strappy casual dress. The cardigan comes in petite and women’s sizes and with 4 color options: olive, lemon, holiday pink, and tourmaline. Unfortunately, the Boyfriend Cardigan at Talbot’s is now sold out, but we found several boyfriend cardigans on Amazon that are affordable.
Chico’s clothing stores feature high-quality items that are a mix of classic and trendy, for most casual occasions and for work. These are the more expensive items, even after sale prices, but they’ll last as a staple in your winter wardrobe for years to come.
The longer tunic style is really “in” this year, and doesn’t show signs of fading away. This cashmere sweater is perfect for the office, with a notch neckline that doesn’t expose cleavage.
Puffed sleeves are making a comeback, and this sweater fits right in! This 3/4 puffed sleeve scoop neck sweater is a great transition piece from winter to spring. The sweater comes in 4 colors: Aubergine (purple), Pacific Blue (teal/turquoise), Black, and Coral and is available on Amazon.com. This sweater would be cute with a khaki or pinstripe skirt.
For a cashmere scarf to tuck away for winter, you might also be interested in Chico’s Cashmere Scarf (available exclusively online), which comes in 4 different colors and is available for buy now pay later with Afterpay.
So go ahead, indulge those finer tastes. With these prices, it’s well worth it!
