I love a nice warm, chunky sweater but unfortunately I don’t get to wear them as much since I live in California. So when I get a chance to visit cooler climates I definitely wear them on repeat. Even though I don’t get to wear my sweaters as much anymore, I still can’t resist picking new ones up every season! So I’ve rounded up my favorite places to shop for sweaters.
Quality Sweaters at a Good Price
I picked up the one that I’m wearing at H&M last month. It’s a part of H&M’s Premium Quality line. I love this line because the pieces are made using higher quality materials, like silk or wool, and when they go on sale they are really affordable! This one is a mix of wool and cashmere but I paid less than $50!
I decided to keep things simple and pair it with my black Everlane skinny jeans and black patent leather booties. I feel like the black really makes the camel color pop. And these booties turned out to be great in the wet, snowy weather. I love leather booties but always worry that they will get ruined in bad weather. Luckily, the patent leather helps protect against the wet so I can still wear my leather boots in the winter! They won’t replace your winter boots however – they don’t have great traction on the ice! But if you want to be fashionable I totally recommend them! Plus they are 50% off right now!
Transparently Priced and Ethically Made Sweaters
This one is no big surprise if you are a follower of my blog but Everlane is at the top of my list for quality sweaters. They are “famous” for their $100 cashmere sweaters. That’s about the lowest price you will find for quality cashmere. I love that Everlane transparently prices their products so you can see how much it costs to make and what they charge. I recently bought the Waffle Square Crew and I love it!
Romantic, French Sweaters
I recently discovered Sezane and I’m obsessed. I love French culture and I’ve always wanted to visit Paris so wearing one of these sweaters (which come directly from France) make me feel a little bit closer to getting there. Plus, everything at Sezane is GORGEOUS. I got the Cassie Jumper for Christmas and I love that it can be worn forwards or backwards. My hubby also spoiled me with the Claude Bag in Green. I’m in love with both of these pieces so I recently ordered the Simone Jumper. These pieces are definitely a bit of a splurge though! (I think they would make a perfect Valentine’s Day present so drop a hint to your man!).
I always end up picking up a few sweaters from J.Crew and Banana Republic every year. Both of these retailers have great sales – usually up to 40% off – so I don’t have to spend a lot. J.Crew and Banana Republic have a great collection of lightweight merino sweaters in tons of colors. They also have some fun, no-so-basic sweaters every year and I usually pick up one of those as well. This year I bought a cute red ruffle sweater from BR and and a cute embellished cable knit from J.Crew.
Sweaters with a Twist
I love to check out Madewell each year for a sweater that’s a little bit different than others. I’m talking about ruffles, fringe, a fun pattern, or embellishments!
I didn’t buy sweaters from these places this year but I always love their selections! If you are looking for really affordable basics, Uniqlo is a great place to go! All of their pieces are under $50 right now – including cashmere! Modern Citizen has a curated selection of modern and minimal pieces that I love. Aritzia always has a huge collection of sweaters that range from modern to feminine to sporty.

Now onto Flashback Fashion Fridays! Here’s a look from January TWO years ago! I was still suffering from morning sickness last year so I didn’t get many outfit photos in. I’m happy to say I still own and wear all the pieces in this outfit!
Adri and I would love for you to link up your fashion posts for a chance to be featured next week!
