WIW: Green Cashmere

Can you believe that this sweater is the first item of cashmere I've ever had? What the heck took me so long - it feels AMAZING against the skin!

I bought this teal green sweater recently as a way to get through the last bit of winter with something new and colourful. It's slightly oversized, which I'm loving. I've paired it with my espresso brown trousers and simple brown heeled booties. I've added my animal print belt for a bit of pattern and interest, and am using my Fossil handbag.

My happiness factor in this outfit is immeasurable - I feel cozy, stylish, comfortable and I'm really happy with the fit of each item.

What do you think? Does it all work together? As always, all comments/suggestions welcome.

Sweater: Lord & Taylor
Trousers: Esprit
Boots: Naturalizer
Handbag: Fossil
Watch: thrifted

    Lovely coloured sweater! I like how the belt echoes your bag colour and your dark hair and colour on you bottom half ground it all.

    Great outfit! I love the semi tuck sweater with the bit of pattered belt peeking out.

  • sarah replied 7 years ago

    Gorgeous! I love the colors, the belt, etc, etc. I just bought my first cashmere sweater, too, and I'm totally hooked (uh-oh).

    Love the color and the faux tuck The color is divine. I am so glad you got yourself some cashmere! Yay! You deserve it.

  • Thistle replied 7 years ago

    That sweater is GORGEOUS! I love the color on you. Isn't good cashmere amazing?!?

  • Tina.b replied 7 years ago

    I have an almost identical cashmere sweater by j. Crew. It is a play on the Isabel Marant sweatshirt. I could seriously live in that thing because it is fabulous. And you are demonstrating its fabulousness here. Love the shape on you, and that colour is astounding! Another gorgeous look!

    Love the color on you and I agree the pieces are all spot on fit and proportion. Cashmere is lovely on, isnt it?

    Your immeasurable happiness factor makes me happy!

    Welcome to the wonderful world of cashmere :)

    Beautiful! Simple and chic!

    Gorgeous, Shannon! And if anyone deserves cashmere, it is women who live in Winnipeg. Get yourself some more. (Said by one who owns precisely 3 pieces of cashmere but loves them all immoderately.)

    Don't you just LOVE the faux semi-tuck? I think it is the greatest invention ever.

  • Transcona Shannon replied 7 years ago

    Suz - you have read my mind! I am seriously considering picking up another one or two of these sweaters in other colours (or the v-neck version) because I can see it becoming a staple for me that works well in both my work capsule and casual capsule. Plus they are on deep discount right now.

    Angie - do you think that would be a wise thing to do, even though we are coming to the end of the winter season?

    And yes, other than PPP, the semi-tuck has been the most important style tip for me. Totally changes the vibe of an outfit, is comfortable, hides wobbly bits and showcases a belt - what more can you ask for?

  • JulieJohn replied 7 years ago

    Shannon, you look marvelous. I love the color combination and that green really flatters lovely you.

    In the words of Stacy London, *shut up!*

    I LUV your cashmere sweater, esp. the way it's styled like a sweatshirt with the X at the collar. Makes your outfit classy but not stuffy.

  • Caro in Oz replied 7 years ago

    Love it -the fit & colour are both fab.

  • Isabel replied 7 years ago

    The only thing that I needed to see in the title was "cashmere"..... I love cashmere and it is finally affordable to the masses...or most of the masses.

    I LOVE that it has a little detail like a sweatshirt. The color is spectacular.

  • catgirl replied 7 years ago

    Very pretty! What brand is the sweater? It looks a bit like my Pim & Larkin.

  • Nadya replied 7 years ago

    Lovely color. I'm so happy you discovered cashmere! I discovered it a few years ago and try to buy a sweater every year. Love them!

  • Elizabeth P replied 7 years ago

    No comment. Perfection.

  • Transcona Shannon replied 7 years ago

    Thank you ladies - I think I might become a cashmere addict!

    Una - the sweater brand is Lord & Taylor. I really liked this style (they also have v-neck) because it looks like a sweatshirt.

  • Isabel replied 7 years ago

    I cannot stop thinking about this sweatshirt. I may have to get it. I have been wanting the Isabel J.Crew cashmere sweatshirt for a while, this one is much better priced. About 20 years ago, I saw a young Cindy Crawford interviewed by Oprah and she said that one ting that every woman should " experience" is cashmere. Back then it was a gazillion dollars for cashmere. Bit is so hard to go back. One of these days I am going to get cashmere socks. They seem so extravagant, don't they ?
