I say this every fall, but I love a good sweater. Growing up in Florida, sweaters were never really necessary. But I’d still pore over the “back to school” catalogs, wishing I could run down a street lined with red-leafed trees to the school bus in a cute sweater. The first thing I did when I went to school in DC was to start my sweater collection… and it’s only grown since. I have all kinds of sweaters now (it’s really a border-line problem), but my favorites are cashmere. It is the ultimate luxury fashion item. Not only do they look chic and elevate any outfit (even a pair of jeans!), it feels like a hug.
I’m partnering with Uniqlo in today’s post to share their crewneck cashmere sweater. It’s 100% cashmere… and under $80. It comes in 13 different colors, but the black is a classic that no one will regret. Because it’s cashmere, it’s super soft!
More often than not, I wear my cashmere sweaters casually with jeans. I’ll wear sneaks for a super casual look, ballet flats when I want to look cute but comfortable, and even heels to dress it up a little for a date night. (I’m sure the sweater will be incorporated into other outfit posts throughout the fall/winter, so be on the lookout!)
For this outfit, though, I wanted to have a work-appropriate outfit. I usually go for easy to wear dresses when I have meetings to attend… but what to do when it’s a little chilly?!
I found the cashmere crewneck to fit true to size. (I’m wearing the XS.) It’s slim enough to wear on its own, to tuck into pants/skirts if you desire, and to wear under blazers/coats. But you could also totally pull off a button down underneath too.
I’m the worst offender of wearing head-to-toe black when I’m unsure of what to wear. You really just can’t go wrong, especially in NYC where all-black is the unofficial (or you know what? maybe it is official) uniform.
While we’re on the subject, if you’re not familiar with Uniqlo, it’s a wonderous retailer. I always pop into the store when I walk by in NYC because you never know what you’re going to stumble upon. They have some trendier items and a whole lot of practical staples, all at amazing prices. I wanted to round up some of their other cashmere pieces that I think you’ll too: Cashmere Blended Stand Collar Coat, Crewneck Cardigan, Turtleneck, and the Scarf. PS Their Heattech collection is a lifesaver during the winter.
Thank you Uniqlo for sponsoring this post!
