And with January comes sweater weather. Perhaps the only month in the year when I can truly count on my cozy sweaters getting daily wear. I recently went through a closet edit and clean up and gave every sweater a thorough look over. I donated the ones that no longer fit well and the colors that were no longer flattering. I shaved pills off cashmere and then gave them a fresh wash.
When all was done, sweaters that felt like new were stacked by color. I could see some voids and some heavy repetition. Shades of ivory, cream, ecru, and winter white (I tell myself they are all significantly different) dominated. Knowing I already have a variety, I have to stop myself from the temptation of buying another with a new texture or silhouette.
I don’t spend a fortune on sweaters. Jackets, bags, shoes, yes, but sweaters haven’t tipped in that direction. I feel like I can find the look, quality and feel that I’m after in more price friendly brands. In my stack of cashmere sweaters, I have several from Nordstrom under their Nordstrom Signature label. They’re good. Hefty cashmere in styles that are not too oversized and not too skimpy. Just wearable classics. Perhaps that’s why I have more than a few and continue to purchase cashmere sweaters from Nordstrom.
