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.
Where to Buy the Best 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!
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 have the Alpaca Sweater in two colors and I love them!
Romantic, French Sweaters
If you didn’t know, I’m obsessed with Sezane!. 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 have several of their sweaters and they never disappoint. My favorite sweater so far is probably the Gaspard Jumper because it can be worn forward, backward, or as an open cardigan. So versatile!
Ethically Made Cashmere Sweaters
NAADAM is my go-to for cashmere and cashmere blend sweaters. I love that they offer a lighter cashmere knit option which they call silk cashmere. I bought two of their silk cashmere tank dresses and I’ve worn them so much. I even wore them when I was 9 months pregnant in the summer. It’s seriously a magic dress. I also have two of their silk cashmere tanks and the cropped cashmere tank. Next on my list is the long sleeve silk cashmere dress! NAADAM also offers a super affordable $75 cashmere sweater in a ton of colors!
NAADAM does have sales 20-30% off every once in awhile and end of season sales that can get up to 50-60% off so definitely pick something up during one of their sales!
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 has a $98 cashmere crewneck sweater available in a ton of colors right now.
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! Aritzia always has a huge collection of sweaters that range from modern to feminine to sporty.
