Insomniac Sale Picks: Classic V-neck Sweaters

*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!*

Teresa requested a few picks for classic v-neck sweaters, so here we go:

 

Woolovers Cashmere & Merino V-neck – was $51, now $22

So, this sweater is a great deal and I love the variety of colors and styles you get at Woolovers BUT I will warn you: This particular fiber blend of theirs tends to be very soft, but not super thick. If you’re looking for a winter sweater that can be worn on its own, look elsewhere. But if you don’t mind layering, this is a great basic. Available in this red as well as forest green, cobalt, gray, beige, olive, pink, and 10 other colors in sizes XS – XL. Size availability varies by color. This similar merino/cashmere pullover is available in petite and plus sizes.

J.Crew Factory Cotton V-neck Sweater – was $49.50, now $29.50

I fear this one is best for layering, too, but available in some great colors! And I’m a HUGE fan of cotton sweaters for winter since they retain a surprising amount of body heat and are machine washable. This one is available in this camel heather as well as white, coral, oatmeal, heather gray, seafoam, navy, or black in sizes XXS – XXL. Size availability varies by color. This style is a cotton blend, but similar and available in sizes 0X – 5X!

Kut from the Kloth Akiko Rib Knit Top – was $68, now $40.80

This one looks to have some heft and loft to it, so might stand alone against cold temps! It’s an acrylic blend, so will likely be nice and soft to boot. Available in this pink as well as charcoal, light gray marl, ivory, gray, peach, and burgundy marl in sizes XS – XL. Size availability varies by color. This similar style is available in plus sizes.

Land’s End Drifter V-neck – was $40, now $28
with code SAVE30 and pin 8748

LE’s sweaters have gotten thinner and thinner over the years, but the Drifter line is still fairly thick and warm. And again, this one is cotton, so washable and great for year-round wear! Available in this forest green as well as black, yellow, or navy in sizes S – XL. Size availability varies by color. This similar style is cotton, but also cabled, and available in plus sizes.

Sustainable resources for classic v-neck sweaters:

  1. Everlane – Wool and cashmere Vs in a variety of classic colors.
  2. Novica – A handful of fair trade lovely v-necks, like this marled blue alpaca pullover.
  3. eBay or The Realreal – I searched and searched, friends, but when it comes to plain v-necks, most sustainable brands fail to deliver. Thousands of gently used options, though!

Other not-currently-on-sale resources for classic v-neck sweaters:

  1. Woolovers – Always check here for basic sweaters! V-necks abound in a variety of fibers, including this lightweight silk/cotton sweater in 12 colors.
  2. J.Crew – Pretty pullovers in a rainbow of shades.
  3. Talbots – When everyone else is offering nothing but crewnecks, Talbots nearly always stocks a V or two.

    Sal,

    It’s so true about the Lands End sweaters getting thinner and thinner. I have some of their cotton sweaters that I bought in the 90s. That’s when many of their garments were made in the US. Those old sweaters, even after years of washing are thicker and better made than the brand new ones. it’s really a shame. It seems like they are trying to not greatly increase the prices by lowering the quality. I’d rather have a $200 sweater that will last me 10-15 years than a $30-50 sweater that will last 2 years. It’s not just the money, either. it’s all the other issues that go with it.
