The Best Chic And Affordable Cashmere And Cashmere-Like Sweaters

As temperatures begin to cool (they WILL cool, right?) I happily transitioned my closet from summer to fall. The first items I move to the front of the closet are my cashmere sweaters! I love cashmere, but I don’t love the price tag. Thankfully, over the years, I’ve found some great inexpensive resources. Today I’m sharing the best chic AND affordable cashmere and Cashmere-like sweaters.

The Best Chic And Affordable Cashmere And Cashmere-Like Sweaters – Under $150

I found Quince a few years ago, and they have been my cashmere go-to ever since. I’ve found the quality to be good, and they don’t seem to sell out quickly like a lot of my other favorite retailers. I love a good turtleneck in a neutral color. It’s a classic! This one is incredibly soft, and it is available in Burgandy and Charcoal if this light brown is not your favorite.

Believe it or not, this pretty V-neck version is available from Amazon! It comes in a whole bunch of great colors, including magenta, lavender, and red. It’s been reviewed 490 times and has a 4.4-star rating!

Cashmere is for cardigans! How pretty is this Dusty Copper version from Nordstrom Rack? It would be perfect for fall. It’s the right color, and you can remove it if the weather shifts warmer. The reviewers say that the quality is great and that it runs true to size.

Another gorgeous version from Quince! This comes in neutrals like grey, black, and navy, but it has a host of others, too. Why not try it in the beautiful sage green? Or pink? It’s actually called a Mongolian Shrunken Cashmere Sweatshirt, and I think it’s perfect for a more casual look.

The Best Chic And Affordable Cashmere And Cashmere-Like Sweaters – Under $50

I’ve bought several Quince $50 dollar cashmere sweaters, and I’ve been very satisfied. The one pictured here is a pretty heather grey, but like the one above, comes in many pretty colors. Worried about the quality? It’s been reviewed over 7,000 times and has a whopping 4.9-star rating! But be aware the ivory version is slightly see-through, but most ivory cashmere sweaters I have is the same way.

Here’s the same sweater in a V-neck. It also has great reviews and a high rating of 4.8 stars! For the price, you really can’t beat this sweater. The color is perfect for fall. FYI, they run true to size.

Quince is not the only place to find affordable cashmere. This mock turtleneck is available on Amazon and comes in several styles and colors. If high turtlenecks bother you, try a mock turtleneck. It’s a great alternative.

The Best Chic And Affordable Cashmere And Cashmere-Like Sweaters – Alternatives to Cashmere

I know that a lot of you can’t wear cashmere due to allergies, so I’ve included a couple of very affordable cashmere-like options. This pullover is from Walmart and comes in several pretty colors, including orange and sky blue. Best part? It’s under $25 dollars!

Here’s another VERY affordable “not cashmere” sweater for those of you who need an alternative. It comes in black, grey, tan, sage green, and many others. The description says it’s 50% Viscose, 28% Polyester, and 22% Nylon. When I say affordable, I mean it. It’s available for just $10 dollars!

This soft sweater from Amazon Essentials is perfect if you want softness but can’t handle the cashmere. It’s got a ton of fans! It’s been reviewed over 11,000 times and has a 4.5-star rating. It comes in solid and other prints, too. And, it’s just $21 dollars!

  1. So funny about your video!!
    I’ve given gifts of cashmere and never purchased one for myself. It’s time!

  2. Being from Florida, I don’t need many sweaters; but I do love cashmere and have tried the ones at Talbots.

  3. Debra Ryland says:

    I love Quince. I have the camel cashmere crew neck And several other sweaters from Quince. So comfy, excellent quality…and affordable. I look forward to your posts, your humor, and you are so inspiring. Thank you

  4. I’ve never owned any cashmere or cashmere-like anything! Wore scrubs to work for over 30 years. Only needed comfy cozies and a few things for weekend and church. Couldnt bring myself to spend the money for things I wouldn’t wear very often.🤷‍♀️

  5. I have never had anything cashmere or probably not even “cashmere -like.” I haven’t really needed super nice clothes. I was in the medical field for 30+ years and wore scrubs. Just needed comfie cozies and a few things for weekends and church.

  6. Would you believe I’m always hot, and everyone in my office is always cold, so no sweaters for me!! I love looking though, thanks for showing so many beautiful options!!

    1. Lori, I’m always one with a heater, and you are the one needing a fan. Lol!

  7. The mock turtleneck is beautiful; it looks so soft and elegant. Thanks for pulling these sweater ideas together.

  8. I love Lands End cashmere sweaters! They are 2 ply which hold up so much longer than regular cashmere. I just got the button-down cardigan in a purple heather color and I am in love!

    1. I have several 2 ply sweaters too, and they do hold up nicely.

  9. The sweaters are lovely. You, Tania, just absolutely crack me up! you are so honest about stuff that happens to you and what you do, and this story about sending yourself out live on the web in your pajamas! you are just fabulous. you might like to know that you are not the only person who gets zapped by technology! LOL!

    1. It happens to the best of us!🤣

  10. Thank you for this great post on sweaters. I have been looking for a great looking and affordable v neck sweater. My local stores do not carry anything nice. I will be ordering soon. Love your blogs!

    1. Yay! I’m so happy that you found something, let me know when you get it! 😊

  11. I’ve never owned a cashmere sweater but the affordable prices of the sweaters you featured sold me on trying one.

    Barb B

    1. I think you’ll love them! 😊

  12. Beautiful! I love the sky blue from Walmart. I am always surprised at what you have posted from there.

  13. Love cashmere, don’t love the price! Thanks for these lower priced alternatives!

  14. I have another question. Do the Quince sweaters run true to size? Normally I am a petite small or xsmall depending on how the sweater is made.

    1. Terri, I think they run a tiny bit small.

      1. Thanks Tania I think I will order xsmall and see what happens. I just have to decide on a color.

  15. Thanks for links to these sweaters. Is it easy to return to Quince?

    1. Yes! They have a 365 day return policy.

  16. This is the year I want to buy a cashmere sweater. I really like the v-neck Quince sweater. I like the shrunken one except for the crew neck. I don’t think a real high neck is flattering on me. I’m going to check out the red ones on Amazon too.

    1. I think you’ll like Quince, but if not, you can return them easily.

  17. Roberta S. says:

    Beautiful sweaters.

  18. I have never purchased anything in cashmere because of the price but your posts may change my mind. Especially the cashmere-like ones!

    1. I’ve tried a few cashmere-like sweaters from Amazon, and I’ve liked them so far. I don’t worry as much about getting those dirty as I do my cashmere sweaters.

  19. Ginger Hiller says:

    I don’t wear cashmere. I really like some of the more affordable options you shared. I really need to go through my fall/winter clothes before I order anything else.

    1. I went through most of mine earlier, but I still have some in a wardrobe that I need to go through.

  20. Mary Kinard says:

    Thanks for including the cashmere -like options as well!

  21. Janell Bontekoe says:

    can’t wait for a cool down to pull out my cashmere! Love these options. I wasn’t familiar with Quince so I’m checking them out!

  22. Melesa Garrison says:

    Thanks for sharing!
    I only have one Quince sweater, but I will buy again as it is very nice.

  23. Love the selection of sweaters.

  24. I love cashmere sweaters. Thank you for finding the deals for us and sharing them. I already have 2 in my carts!

  25. Susan Smallwood says:

    Wow, great post with lots of Options! I discovered Quince a few years ago and really love them. They ARE affordable and great quality. I also order some silk button downs from them. Love your style and love even more your “realness”…..you handled the accidental post yesterday with grace and flair…..You’re SO CUTE! <3

    1. Susan, thanks so much!!! I figured I made someone laugh, and that was okay.

  26. Love all the choices available. Sorry I missed your video!

  27. I’ve never had a cashmere anything. ha. Just hearing the word makes me remember the Seinfeld episode with the cashmere sweater. LOL

  28. I love Cashmere! They are soooo comfortable and soft!! What your husband said to you cracked me up because I can hear mine saying the exact same thing. Actually I think he has! LOL Too funny 🙂

  29. Donna Robinson says:

    Great sweater options!

  30. A beautiful, soft cashmere sweater is so luxurious to wear and makes me feel special. Thanks for these options. Love your video faux pas – you crack me up! And I’m sure your husband won’t let you forget it for awhile. It’s good to laugh at ourselves and not be so serious all the time.

    1. He certainly won’t! 😀

  31. Great Post! I absolutely love your hair! Keep on just being one of us…we all need to laugh at ourselves sometimes… Happy Tuesday❤

  32. Cheryl Stevens says:

    I love the look of cashmere but being allergic to wool, I need to wear the faux cashmere or cashmere alternative versions. Lucky for my pocketbook. Thanks for the look see.

  33. Love the sweaters, Tania…Both the cashmere and cashmere-like. I also have recently discovered Quince and find their clothes to be a good quality.

  34. Can’t wait to get something from Quince. Very nice affordable items. Looking forward to cooler weather to wear sweaters.

  35. Tania, I have lately jumped on the cashmere bandwagon. I now know why so many women love it. It is so comfortable and warm, but not hot. And it is so pretty. I have a couple from Quince and will definitely purchase from them again.
    Thank you.

    1. I think it helps that we have some affordable options now!

  36. Linda Shearer says:

  37. Great sweater options for fall!

  38. After your posting last week I ordered my first cashmere sweater from Quince and I LOVE IT!! It is soooo soft and for a great price $50. I had never heard of Quince until I read your post, easy to order from and came quickly. That’s for sharing!!

    1. You’re welcome. I’ve been very happy with them in the past. I’m glad that you found something you liked! 😊

  39. Thx for all the shopping choices! I’m wondering if you would ever consider a post on all cotton clothing choices? I have a daughter in law who is really tough to buy for secondary to her super sensitive skin. Agsin, thx, Jenn

    1. Jenn, you are right that finding all cotton clothing is hard. I’ve looked for them before, and it isn’t easy.

  40. Glada St Clair says:

    Thank you so much for sharing this.

  41. Todays email with brought home how genuine you are! – which is exactly why I love your blog! ps I totally crush on cashmere

    1. Mary, I am genuine, a smidge on the nutty side, but genuine. Lol!

  42. I love that you sent a video on accident – we are all human and darn the technical mistakes I make on a daily basis would shock! Thanks for sharing your mishap, makes us love you even more!!

    1. Laura, who would have thought that my silly video would be something everyone would love?!?

  43. Patricia Konze says:

    Wow! Lots of very pretty cashmere like options.

  44. Karrie Knutson says:

    Cashmere allows us to look classy so easily. There are new light weight Cashmere sweaters that allow women who get “Hot flashes” to still enjoy wearing Cashmere.

  45. Becky Kerwin says:

    Thank you, I have never bought a cashmere sweater only because I’m so hard on sweaters, mainly because I love them and I’ll wear them alot. I appreciate this post, affordable cashmere is just what I need.

  46. Thank you for reviewing Quince! I have been looking at their clothing for months now, even though they had good reviews, I was skeptical.
    Think I will get one of those beautiful sweaters!

    1. I think you will be happy with them. And they have a very generous return policy!

  47. Jean kern says:

    This was a great post!
    Now to decide which ones to order

  48. Great information. I already ordered the crew neck sweater in camel from Quince. Can’t wait to get it.

  49. Great options for cashmere! Thank you for keeping us informed!

  50. Donna Ingalls says:

    Love a good cashmere sweater!
    Just be careful when washing. I have 2 and find them very versatile.
    Thanks for the “cashmere-like” suggestions too.

    1. Donna, I’ve never tried washing my cashmere, but I bought some detergent for them to try this year.

  51. Love the sweater recommendations Tania ! Quince is also my favorite for cashmere.

    1. Yay!!! I’m glad to see someone else shares my love of Quince.

  52. I have been purchasing clothing from Quince for a while now… linen, cashmere… the quality is good and I am always happy with my purchases!

    1. Sue, you and I are on the same page. Cashmere is what started me with Quince, but I’ve gone on to buy linen, towels, pillowcases, handbags, and clothing.

  53. I’ve never owned a cashmere sweater, they look beautiful

    1. They are beautiful, but it is the softness that I love.
