This Find me…post is thanks to Val, and her quest for a 100% cotton oversized sweater. As I’ve already told her, this turned out to be quite a challenge! And I did a poor job of keeping to her “around $100” price range, because as you get much cheaper than $100, you’re entering into acrylic/poly territory and I wanted to stay far away from that…And since not all of the spring/summer collections are out yet, there is still an overabundance of cashmere, and not a lot of cotton sweaters. Except for Vince. Which I recommend HIGHLY.
Vince v-neck slub sweater | $145 at Shopbop (also in a gorgeous geranium color) – I tried this on and it is wonderful. I loved the way it fit and was longer in the back. A lot of Vince tops are weird on the arms on me, and this one isn’t because it doesn’t have the seam at the upper arm. I HIGHLY recommend this one Val ;))
Vince oversized cotton boatneck sweater | $135 at Shopbop (in the interest of research, I tried this one on yesterday and was quite impressed. The color is weirdly flattering, and it’s still a good oversized shape. The arms were a little tight on me, but I did like the overall shape. I’d go with the v-neck though…)
Hope hooded top | $70 at La Garconne (after 20% off sale items with code JAN2013) – I couldn’t resist this one, in spite of how sickly the model looks. And the hood.
Also, I always recommend Inhabit NY cotton, but they don’t make many oversized pieces.
Do you have any 100% cotton sweater recommendations? Please share!
