Time to start stocking up on some sweaters for the fall! Up here, the weather has been all over the place the last month. We’ve had a heat wave the last three days, and should be expecting highs in the low sixties this weekend 😦 So last weekend, equipped with a 30% off coupon at Gap, Old Navy and Banana Republic, I decided to get some sweater shopping done!
Amongst the many sweaters I got, two of my favorite sweaters are the Gap Vintage Cardigan . I got one in black and one in the vineyard color (a great color for the fall!). I was looking for some classic cardigans that will never go out of style, and these fit the bill! Not too long and slouchy like boyfriend cardigans, nor is it too short like cropped cardigans. The sweater hits me perfectly (I’m 5’7″) and I could see myself wearing this with dresses as I transition from summer to fall, and with pants when it gets colder outside. I also love the fabric. It’s a silk blend and can be casual or dressed up.
Now I know what you’re thinking: “a sweater from Gap? how interesting!”. Yes, it may not be high fashion or anything, but I always get excited when I find a wardrobe staple that I know will never go out of style. It happens to be on sale right now too (most colors are on sale from $24.99-$29.99)! I usually invest a lot more on the basics because I know they will get a lot of mileage. But I found this GAP sweater is built well with a rich and versatile fabric and it was exactly what I was looking for.
