As promised…some shots of my new Everlane cashmere cropped sweater. It turns out it was pretty cool this weekend, so I was able to wear it. Funny how that works isn’t it? It’s hot, and then all of a sudden it’s cold. Of course, once it gets cold here in the mornings I have a hard time warming up unless I’m in the sun, so I’ll be cold basically until March. Thank goodness for sweaters…
Anyway, this, I think, is my favorite way to wear this sweater. I’m going to show you other ways this week, too, but in my opinion, this sweater just fits best with a super high-waisted pair of pants (here’s another look at these Kit & Ace pants). And as you’ll see this week, it’s not as easy to layer over t-shirts, blouses, as it looks. I suppose if I got a medium, it would layer better, but the small is not drapey enough or doesn’t fall away enough from my body to look as “effortlessly” layered as I’d like.
I mentioned last week that I thought about sending this one back to get the burgundy sweater instead, but I’ve decided against that. I’m also not going to buy it in ADDITION to the black. Yes, it’s still my knee-jerk reaction when I find something I love to want to buy it in EVERY color, but I’ve learned, through a lot of restraint, that I don’t need to do that. I have enough.
Not the best shot, but here you can see how it curves down around the sides:
Did anyone else get an Everlane cropped cashmere sweater? What did you think of it? For reference, I’m about 5’3″ and wear a size 28-29 in denim.
