This $100 Basic Will Make Your Winter Wardrobe Look Expensive

Welcome to the latest edition of a new series in which we'll cover a variety of affordable basics that we turn to time and time again. We hope that The Basics will help you to build your closet with pieces that you, too, will wear on repeat without doing harm to your bank account. We already covered the $30 pants that I consider life-changing. Next up, I'm sharing with you the $100 cashmere sweater that's making life a lot more bearable this fall and winter. 

The search for the best high-quality cashmere sweater that doesn't require half of your cold-weather wardrobe budget can seem like a fruitless treasure hunt. While there's plenty of affordable cashmere out there, you may be faced with the frustration of it wrinkling and pilling with the first wear. Well, rest assured that your search ends here. Everlane recently reduced the prices of its vast cashmere collection to reflect fallen manufacturing costs. The brand's mission statement calls for transparency in its pricing, which the customer undoubtedly benefits from. I'm particularly smitten with the brand's The Cashmere Crew sweater in camel (the color that makes everything look expensive). For just $100, the number of times I've worn this versatile sweater is well worth the Benjamin. Want to know exactly why I recommend adding one to your cart ASAP?

Keep scrolling to the eight reasons it's the basic that will be your winter wardrobe's workhorse, and shop a few outfits that prove its versatility.
