+ Look for Less

10th Commandment: August 20

It doesn’t seem possible that it’s time to start shopping for sweaters again, but it is.  My favorite last year was an ivory cable-knit from Zara that will need to be replaced.  Here are the top contenders.

Elected Officials


Alexander McQueen Cable Sweater ($1,085)

Hill Staffer


Barbour Ursula Sweater ($166)

*love the mix of textures on this sweater.

Paid Intern


Gap Cable Knit Sweater ($59)

*comes in 8 colors–love the teal.

Need a v-neck?  Try this $35 Asos sweater.

Petite and Tall: The Gap sweater comes in your size.  Plus-size: Land’s End has you covered.

    Forget the sweater – I am lusting over those A McQ red leather pants. Divine

    I think I like the one from gap best, which is nice because of the price tag!

    I literally thought “damn, I really need a v-neck” and then scrolled to the end of the post. Belle wins at the internet.

      I wish there had been better choices for the v-neck, but I picked the best one. Can’t leave you girls out.

    Just a question – did anyone else notice that there is a skull on the top sweater? I did a double take, but now I can’t unsee it.

    Also, ivory sweaters are my favorite!

    I missed out on a cable knit sweater last year so I’m on admission to find one this season. I’d like to spend less than $100, but don’t care for the longer hem at the bottom of the Gap sweater. Will you keep us posted or revisit ivory cable knits as they become more available? Thanks for the post Belle!

    That would be “a mission.” Darn autocorrect!
