I’m so glad that I found your blog. I am having a dilemma I am hoping you can help with. I have worn jcrew’s vneck sweaters for the last few years but their quality this year is unacceptable; the sweaters are totally see through. Could you please suggest some alternatives? I’m having trouble because I need a slim fit and longer length. So far, I’ve found only boxy fits at stores like Banana Republic.
I actually had good luck with this v-neck sweater from Banana Republic. But if you tried that one, let’s see what we can find in a similar price point.
This sweater from Bloomingdale’s comes in a wide selection of colors. They also make a crewneck version. If you prefer a wider band around the neckline (it may bel the sweater lay flat), AQUA offers a cashmere sweater for $99 that also comes in decent number of colors.
Brooks Brothers is usually a reliable choice. They make products for a conservative clientele, so the weights are usually right. Their basic v-neck might be a good place to start. Same goes for Land’s End (their sweaters also come in petite and plus).
For a more casual option, I really like this Michael Kors Shaker Stitch option. The longer length in the rear balances out the look of a sweater and skinny jeans.
