One of the worst-kept secrets among the style set (i.e., people who think about about shopping a lot) is Uniqlo cashmere. Come fall, the brand’s simple, classic sweaters are continually being hailed by fashion sites as impossibly high-quality at an unbelievably affordable price point. And while the phenomenon has been well-documented, that won’t stop those around you from mistaking your Uniqlo sweater for a much more expensive one. So it bears repeating: If you’re lusting after real, 100-percent cashmere at something like half the typical cost, Uniqlo’s value is still unbeatable. Scroll on for our favorite of this year’s colorways, in three versatile styles (they also offer a cardigan version), and a few of the endless ways to wear them.
With the crewneck in fashion again, there’s no better style than this one to replace your rotation of lackluster t-shirts. Wear royal blue as a pop of color with jeans when you can’t muster anything more creative, and look instantly chic in camel for a professional occasion. Face fluctuating temperatures throughout the day? Layer a slim turtleneck underneath.
Another easy “fashion girl” device, the turtleneck makes its wearer look effortlessly elegant. Of course, when colder weather hits, it’s your best bet warmth-wise, too. Envelop yourself in this luxuriously soft version, paired with anything from a silk midi skirt to plaid trousers. Muted pastels feel of-the-moment, while gray and cream are essential wardrobe staples.
For those who like a bit of breathing room above the chest, a v-neck can be the most comfortable way to go. One reviewer calls this one “neat-fitting,” while another says it has “relaxed coolness, especially worn over skirts or dresses.” A medium-weight ribbed knit feels moderately casual, so you’ll look presentable at brunch even if you wear it with joggers and sneakers.
