The Sweaters You Need

If it was up to me all I would wear from September to March is sweaters. Honestly that’s about all I do wear, peppered in with some dresses here and there.

I would also have an entire closet and budget dedicated to buying sweaters, but again, I live in a one bedroom apartment with limited closet space and a social worker budget.

So I’m going through my three sweaters I believe everyone should have, although I’d have so many more if I had the space!

1. The Lightweight Tunic Sweater

A tunic sweater allows you to wear jeans and leggings without your butt hanging out. I love leggings, but I’m never comfortable wearing them without a shirt or sweater covering my butt. A lightweight tunic sweater is casual enough to wear around the house, but pair it with jeans and booties and it’s nice enough for a dinner party.

2. The Big Cardigan

A big, fluffy, knit sweater is a necessity for anyone who works in an office or travels a lot. I leave this swaeter at work and tend to use it daily when I’m cold all year long and also use it whenever I fly or am in the car for more than 4 hours. It’s a big thick sweater but also looks chich paired with slimming pieces. It’s also extremely comfortable which sells it for me.

3. The Cashmere Sweater

If you don’t buy any other sweater I truly recommend a cashmere sweater. Once you own even a low grade cashmere sweater, you understand why they are so desirable. They can be worn year round depending on their ply and are so lightweight and warm.

Linked below I have my two favorite types. The first is from Macy’s and these sweaters are a great place to start with cashmere. And during the Macy’s Black Friday sale they are only $40, which is an absolute steal. That is the cheapest I have ever seen them all year long and I always buy one or two for my husband and myself.

My other favorite is the sweater I have pictured by Vince. It is thicker ply cashmere but it falls so well on me and has held up amazingly. Again, check Sak’s around Christmas for a much cheaper price.

Also, I do dry clean these sweaters, but I use Dryell the at home system. Bringing them to a cleaner would be too expensive for how often I wear them.

There are plenty of other types of sweaters out there, ski sweaters, ribbed sweaters, sweater dresses, etc. but these three pieces I consider essential to my closet. What are your sweater essentials?

    I love sweaters and truly wish sometimes I could wear them more often. My favorite right now is the oversized cardigan because they are so comfortable and go with so much.

    LOVE your sweaters! I am a big fan of chunky sweaters, but never wear them unless they’re a little flowy and look great with leggings! Happy fall!

    Love the cream one with the stripe! Would never think to pair those two. Thanks for the idea!
