The Black Cashmere Sweater: A Wardrobe Staple
We’ve recently talked all about fall trends. But in today’s post, we are talking all about a must-have Fall staple: the black cashmere sweater. Though there are different type of sweaters, there’s something about the cashmere sweater that ultimately makes it the “best and most luxe” type of sweater to own. For starters, cashmere sweaters are light weight, soft, keep you warm and are often associated with a high price tag. However, in today’s post I bring you an affordable and accessible one from Uniqlo. After wearing the sweater non-stop this past weekend, I can attest that it is soft, cozy, light weight, and not at all itchy.

Why is it a must have fall staple?
Well, for starters, it’s the perfect layering piece, as the temperature begins to drop. Whether it’s over a collar button-down or under a vest, a blazer, or leather jacket or coat, this sweater is thin and makes it easy to wear under or over pieces. Plus, it’s a neutral! And that means it goes with anything and everything making it a very versatile piece.
Speaking of versatility, a black cashmere sweater like this one can instantly be uptown chic or downtown edgy. While there are likely dozens of ways to style the sweater, let’s take a look at some ideas to kick-start your imagination:
For work: layer over a collar button down then add a great wide legged trouser and pump for a preppier office look.
For brunch: wear as I do here but the great thing about this look is that it can work for the office or weekend wear.
For date night: wear with black leather pants and a great black stiletto heel and finish the look with a black leather jacket and clutch.
For running errands: Add a camel coat and pair with a great pair of denim and add a pair of sneakers or flats.
A UNIQLO black cashmere sweater is a great layering piece for Fall & Winter, and frankly, this is one of those sweaters that you should have in your wadrobe in all colors - they’re THAT versatile. So how will you be styling this sweater this fall & winter? Let me know in the comments below!
