Pick a Sweater, Any Sweater

I got bit by the sweater bug. It was bound to happen sooner or later, with the weather taking a turn for the cold, and all. I’ve been rather sweater-obsessed in past years, but I didn’t want to allow that this year. I don’t want to buy the first sweater that catches my eye… its a slippery slope!  So, I decided to do a little compare and contrast.

I went to LOFT, Ann Taylor and J. Crew’s sites and picked out my favorite three sweaters from each retailer. Then, I compared them all… right here! My goal was to pick out 1-2 winners from the bunch. My favorites are noted at the bottom of the post!

Comparing all of these sweaters side by side is surprisingly helpful. For my number one pick, I would have to choose J. Crew’s Collection Cashmere Diamond Sweater. I love the look of this! The cut is classic and easy to wear with skirts or pants. The colors are neutral and flattering, and the print is just perfect. They got it right on this one, unlike their Collection Cashmere Tile Sweater, which easily puts 30lb on the model (same model!). My runner up is LOFT’s Floral Scroll Print Sweater. This sweater is gorgeous and sounds like a non-itchy cotton/viscose/wool blend. This one would be great for work or for the holidays! Now, time to wait for sales. I just missed some good ones, I think. Lucky for my bank account 🙂
