I know that the weather is still hot outside, and the last thing that you want to think about is sweaters and cardigans. But, you will thank me this fall when you are styling the new items that you bought instead of dragging out the same ole same ole again. You don’t have to buy a head-to-toe outfit, but one of two new items can sure make a difference in your wardrobe. Sweater and cardigans are versatile and they can be worn in many different ways. Jeans are always a great option, but you also have a lot of other options such as pants, leggings, skirts, over a dress, worn over a shirt or alone. Here are some sweaters that stood out to me for various reasons. I usually try to find a cashmere sweater when there is a great sale so that I can get that luxury item I am wanting for a great price. I also look for things that I know will go with a lot of clothing that I already own, and solids go a long way in that department.
Starting at the top and moving from left to right:
- The Navy v-neck cashmere sweater is a luxury 100% cashmere sweater that is under $100. This can be worn in so many ways and it is very versatile. If I am going to pay a lot for a luxury item, I want to know that I will be able to wear it for years to come.
I love a knee-length cardigan, and this pink one by Leith comes in several colors. I am particularly fond of this pink adobe color and a caramel tan one also. The pink one will work for fall and spring, and the tan will work for fall and winter, so you will get at least to seasons of wear from either of those.
Rust is the perfect color for fall! I have been wearing this color all summer long, it is such a gorgeous shade of brown. I don’t wear a lot of chocolate brown unless it is in pants or boots, but I love rust in almost anything. So, this open stitch cardigan is high up on my list for sweaters. And, it is well under $35.00, so it is very affordable.
Dip down just a tad and look at the light purple sweater. This is one of my MUST-HAVE picks! I love, love, love the purple color of this oversized wide neck sweater, and it comes in a couple more colors also. This scream comfy, cozy, and I think it is so elegant looking also. Now you see why this is high on my list. And, it is under $50.00, so this is definitely in my wish list.
The black crewneck sweater at the top is one that you can wear all of the time. This is what I would call a basic sweater. This is the type that you can tuck the front into jeans for a cute look. Just add some black moto boots, and you have an edgy biker chick look. Lol!
The brand, Barefoot dream is associated with softness and coziness. I see everyone fighting over blankets from them that run in the hundreds of dollars. No, I don’t have one, and unless I find a ridiculous sale on them, I don’t expect to get one any time soon. Lol! This leopard print cardigan is on everyone’s “wish list” partly because of the softness and partly because of the print. It also comes in two other leopard print colors that are more subtle and muted.
This is another Barefoot Dream’s cardigan with the circle hemline. I love this one, probably even more than the leopard print. This cardigan will become your go-to for the style, but also because of the softness. The cardi comes in several colors, but I am partial to this blue/gray color. This cardigan also comes in Plus sizes.
How about another Barefoot Dream’s cardigan? Lol! Yes, they are that sweet, and yes, you should consider trying at least one of them. This lightweight cardigan comes in several colors, but I love this heathered taupe color. I can already see this being worn with jeans, and a white tee, and knee boots.
At barely under $150.00, this cashmere chevron knit sweater is a splurge for sure. But, considering that price is $130.00 off the retail price, I guess you could call it a bargain. Lol!
I am not sure why my tenth photo didn’t make the graphic. But, this is one that you are going to want to check out. This is a crewneck cashmere sweater, but the price of it is much more manageable. The sweater comes in several colors, and I know that you are going to be surprised to find out that the pink and the rust ones are my favorite.
And, I had to give you one more sweater that I love and it is once again cashmere. This is an easy throw on Ruana and it will be perfect for the chilly nights to come. This sweater comes in five different colors, but once again, I am loving the pink. However, I am also loving the gray and the oatmeal color too.
Check all of these out, and be sure to add any that you love to your wish list.
