So the other day Put This On did a post about A Basic Cashmere Wardrobe. It was mostly about Cashmere, but it made one mention of the three most basic colours for v-neck sweaters. I just wanted to do a co-sign on this. I only have 3 sweaters. They are v-necks. They are burgundy, navy, and charcoal. That shits all you need.
Also, if you’re on a budget and can’t really afford or find used cashmere, just go with anything 100% wool. Merino, lambswool, or whatever the hell you find. It’s not exactly cashmere, but it’s a hell of a lot better than cotton, or a blend of any kind.
