Ask Belle: Under-$100 Sweaters for Fall
Oct 19, 2015
I took my sweaters out of storage and discovered that all of my pullovers were moth-eaten. When I finished crying, I started searching for replacements. I found two I liked, but I need two or three more. I don’t want to spend more than $100 per sweater, $75 is ideal.

I feel your pain! My favorite yellow, henley sweater was destroyed by bugs during my move last year. (Why do they only eat the cashmere? Why?!?) Here are a few sweaters — broken up by style — to help get you back on the right track.
V-Necks are my go-to sweater choice. The balance out my wider shoulders (or an ample bustline) and allow you to mix in other blouses as needed. For this set, I choose basic black (it comes in 15 colors), a fun tie-neck in a bright color, and a modern, oversize look.
Crewnecks. I like the look of a crewneck sweater with a statement collar necklace. Uniqlo makes a great crewneck sweater in a soft cashmere. For a simple detail, I like the look of this button-back sweater. And if you need cotton, this textured sweater has a chic, casual look to it.
If you like detailed sweaters, this affordable Fair Isle sweater in a simple black and white is nice. You can also add a bit of sparkle to your attire this Ivanka Trump sweater has a fun detail. I’ve also seen a few sweaters with sheer accents, like this 1.State sweater in berry.
