Insomniac Sale Picks: Zipper Cardigans

*In this late-night feature – which will run on Tuesday and Thursday of each week – I’ll gather up three fun items that are currently on sale online and share them with you! I would LOVE suggestions: Stylish wide-width pumps? Classic v-necked sweaters? Chandelier earrings? Petite dress slacks? What would you like to see featured?*

Chris requested a few picks for zipper cardigans, preferably cotton or wool, so here we go:

431001_5X13_LF_BUR

Land’s End Drifter Cardigan – was $50, now $28
with code DEALS and pin 1588

This style is a Land’s End classic, although this particular iteration is slightly lighter weight than past ones. It’s washable 100% cotton with a grosgrain zipper pull, and knit to fit instead of cut and sewn. Available in this burgundy as well as black, navy, yellow, and red in sizes S – XL. Size availability varies by color. Surprisingly, this particular sweater doesn’t come in any size variations, but this acrylic blend zip-front sweater is available in regular, petite, and plus sizes.

St. John’s Bay Cable Zip Cardigan – was $42, now $24.99

How cozy does THAT look? This cardigan is a cotton/acrylic blend, but gets high marks from customers for fit, design, and softness. And it comes in loads of gorgeous colors: This black as well as burgundy, red, heather brown, chocolate brown, ivory, heather gray, cobalt, citron, or navy. Available in sizes S – XL. Size availability varies by color. Also in tall and plus sizes, though in fewer colors. Need pure cotton? This LL Bean zip cable cardigan is 100% cotton and comes in regular, petite, and plus sizes, though not currently on sale.

Wool Overs Lambswool Shaped Zip Cardigan – $38

I know – not on sale. But SUCH a great price for 100% wool, and having ordered from Wool Overs myself I can vouch for the quality: I have two button-front cardigans that are cotton/silk blends and although they’re lightweight, they’re sturdy and well designed. This cardigan is well reviewed, though be aware that it runs a bit big – a small fits a U.S. size 6-8.  This company also does several zipper cardigans in unisex sizing – including the Lincoln Cardigan style which fits a size 22-24 in XXL. (Correct size chart here.) This unisex lambswool hoody is a customer favorite, too.

Other not-currently-on-sale resources for zipper cardigans:

  1. Nordstrom – Lots of cool and classy options from motos to boyfriends. How cute is this long length fuzzy zip cardi?
  2. Land’s End – Several cute options in addition to the one above, including this ribbed-panel hoodie.
  3. eBay – More than 2,000 results in a huge variety of styles and sizes.
  4. And, of course, THRIFT STORES! With a style like this that isn’t currently trending, always worth checking your secondhand options. (thethriftshopper.com can help you locate stores near you.)

Insomniac Sale Picks: Boots with Chunky Heels

*In this late-night feature – which will run on Tuesday and Thursday of each week – I’ll gather up three fun items that are currently on sale online and share them with you! I would LOVE suggestions: Stylish wide-width pumps? Classic v-necked sweaters? Chandelier earrings? Petite dress slacks? What would you like to see featured?*

Marje requested a few picks for boots with chunky heels, so here we go:

clarks jolissa lapis

Clarks Jolissa Lapis – was $230, now $89.99 – $179.99

Burgundy. YUM. This pair sports a sturdy block heel at 2.75″ and a tough-but-classy wraparound buckle detail. And they’re a great option for folks with narrow calves, since they’ve got a 13.5″ circumference. Available in this burgundy and in black in sizes 6 – 10. Size availability and price vary by color. Also over on 6pm in sizes 9 -10. This pair has a shorter heel, but comes in burgundy with a 17.25″ calf circumference.

born shaylee

Born Shaylee – was $200, now $83.16 – $199.95

If you’re looking for a shorter chunky heel, this Born pair fits the bill. With a 15″ calf and 2.25″ heel, it will be as comfy as it is cute. Available in this gray-tan as well as weathered black leather in sizes 6 – 11. Size availability and price vary by color. This similar pair has a 16″ calf.

timberland stratham heights

Timberland Earthkeepers Stratham Heights – was $200, now $120

I own these and will continue to recommend them until there are no pairs left on earth. You can see how much I love my pairs here. These boots are comfy, cute, versatile enough for work or play and – wait for it – waterproof. YES! These have a 14.5″ calf and 3.5″ chunky stacked heel. Available in this cognac as well as black or chocolate brown in sizes 6- 11. If that calf is too narrow or heel too high, this style also comes in an ankle boot with a 2.5″ heel.

miz mooz noa

Miz Mooz Noa – was $220, now $145.94 – $219.95

Miz Mooz is an underrated brand that consistently churns out comfy, stylish shoes and boots. This cool pieced boot is a perfect example – such fun details and interesting construction. This style has a 2″ heel and 14″ circumference and gets high marks from customers. Available in this black as well as whiskey brown in sizes 6 – 11. Also available in wide calf.

Other not-currently-on-sale resources for boots with chunky heels:

  1. Clarks – Stylish, well-made options including booties and tall boots with chunky heels.
  2. Born – Short, mid-calf, and tall in gorgeous colors and all with walkable heels. These stacked-heel cowgirl-influenced boots are calling to me.
  3. Rieker – Comfortable, edgy designs including these badass lug-sole ankle boots.

Insomniac Sale Picks: Sweater Dresses

*In this late-night feature – which will run on Tuesday and Thursday of each week – I’ll gather up three fun items that are currently on sale online and share them with you! I would LOVE suggestions: Stylish wide-width pumps? Classic v-necked sweaters? Chandelier earrings? Petite dress slacks? What would you like to see featured?*

Several readers have requested a few picks for various types of sweater dress, so here we go:

cable knit sweater dress

Style&co. Cable-Knit A-Line Sweater Dress – was $69.50, now $39.09
with code STAR

I remember a request for A-line and full-skirted sweater dresses and I struggled to find any. This year? They’re available in abundance. This one has 3/4 sleeves and although it looks short, the description and reviews maintain it is knee-length on most figures. Available in this red as well as black, heather gray, and merlot in sizes XS – XL. Size availability varies by color. Also available in petite and plus sizes.

fit and flare sweater dress

Sandra Darren Plus-Size Lace Fit & Flare Dress – was $100, now $70

I so dig that pattern. I’ve seen sweater dresses with heathering, but very few that have an actual pattern. Love the 3/4 sleeves and flared skirt. I’d probably belt this one, add some opaque black tights and brown boots, and call it good. Available in sizes 1X – 3x. Also in S – XL.

surplice sweater dress

Chaps Surplice Sweaterdress – was $110, now $82.50

For those who prefer a slimmer, more sheath-like fit, this shawl-collar surplice sweater dress is a great option. Paired with tights and boots it will be cozy and comfy all winter long. Also in petite sizes, and this similar design comes in sizes 14W – 24W.

belted sweater dress

Jones New York Signature Plus Size Belted Sweater Dress – was $119, now $90.94
with code STAR

Here’s why the image is a bit wonky: The image for the plus size version – which is on sale – was TEENY. The regular size version is not on sale, but had a lovely big image. So we’ve got a hybrid. The plus version has a fabulous V- neckline – rare in sweater dresses – long sleeves, an A-line skirt, and removable belt. This one looks like and actually does hit at the knee. Available in charcoal in sizes 0X- 3X. Also in petite and regular sizes, not on sale.

Other not-currently-on-sale resources for sweater dresses:

  1. eBay – For whatever reason, sweater dresses can be a bit tough to find. But eBay has thousands of options in various lengths, styles, and sizes.
  2. Macy’s – One of the few retailers that offers real variety, including a-line styles, petite and plus sizes, and some hemlines that aren’t super short.
  3. Kohl’s – Affordable, office-friendly options. Love this marled drop-waist style.
  4. Nordstrom – A nice variety of lengths and styles, including this long-sleeved Fair Isle and this striped/colorblocked plus-size one.
  5. And, of course, THRIFT STORES! It’ll be hit or miss, for sure, but especially now that the weather is truly turning some sweater dresses should start appearing on the racks. (thethriftshopper.com can help you locate stores near you.)
