Ashley requested a few picks for warm, budget-friendly, sweaters and cardigans, so here we go:
Plaited shawl collar cardigan -was $79.95, now $41.99
when you use code GAPSNOW to get an additional 40% off
I’m a huge fan of long cardigans, and completely adore the details on this one: That nice deep v-neckline, cozy shawl collar, asymmetric button closure, and pointed hem detail. Cripes, I think I’ll have to buy one of these for myself! Since this is a nylon/acrylic blend, its warming properties come from length and design rather than natural materials, but still a very stylish and affordable bet.
Nixon Almost Cropped Crew Sweater – was $54, now $43.99
HM hates on overly-long sleeves, but I’m a fan. They don’t look super professional, it’s true, but as a gal with constantly cold hands I can’t help but gravitate toward sweaters that might actually keep my digits warmish. (You can also cuff the sleeves on this sweater without making it look awkward – bonus!) The sweater itself looks fairly thin, but the relatively high neckline and engulfing sleeves make me think it’ll still be a good option for cold days. Also available in green/gray and black/white stripes.
Cashmere ribbed tunic sweater – was $114, now $61.19
So I know this option isn’t exactly dirt cheap, but believe me when I say that cashmere sweaters are WORTH THE MONEY. They are equal parts soft and warm, and if you live in a wintry climate I would recommend tracking down at least one that you adore with your whole heart. This one is a longer length with a nice big cowl, so it’ll engulf you in warmth. 100% cashmere. Also available in dark taupe and a heathered evergreen.
Other not-currently-on-sale resources for great budget-friendly, warm sweaters:
- Old Navy – Always a great source for basics at rock-bottom prices. My experiences with Old Navy sweaters have been extremely good, though I notice they rely on manmade fibers to keep prices low.
- J.Crew – Hit up the sale section for some sweet deals on pullovers and cardigans – full-priced offerings are still spendy, but there are some gorgeous wares in clearance right now.
- And, of course, THRIFT STORES! Cashmere, wool, angora, cotton, silk – they’re all there. Thrift stores are absolutely overflowing with sweaters right now, so do poke around. (thethriftshopper.com can help you locate stores near you.)
