I know we’re still kind of at the tail end of summer right now, but I’ve been sharing lots of fall clothes, and buying a few myself, too. One of the things I picked up is this cropped cable knit cashmere sweater from J.Crew, and the minute I tried it on, I instantly knew I wanted to write a post about it – it’s that good. Cropped? Cashmere? Cable knit? All things I love, and the sweater truly does not disappoint.
I shared in this post that I like to layer a sweater over a dress for fall – it’s easy for me to wear, and makes it look like I’m wearing something a little different than the same dress over and over again. This sweater is perfect for layering for me! The cable knit texture gives it a little extra texture and detailing, and the cropped boxy shape means that it works perfectly over a dress! Cropped works especially great for me, since I’m seated – sweaters typically are too long on me, but this hits me in exactly the right place. I know I’m layering it over a dress, but it would also look so cute with a high waisted skirt or pair of pants!
And the cashmere is so soft! It’s kind of the perfect weight – it’s not thick or bulky at all, but just so soft and cozy. The perfect extra layer that adds just the right amount of warmth. I love cashmere and have my fair share of sweaters – this is absolutely one of the softest I own.
But the best part of the sweater? The tie back! It’s really hard to get a picture of my back without my wheelchair getting in my way, but I did my best! The back is basically open except for a tie in the middle. I could not love this more. It makes the sweater adjustable and gets that perfect boxy/swingy shape. If you’re layering the sweater over something like I am here, it feels so much less bulky! And for me, a tie-back sweater is just way easier to get on, and means that I don’t have to worry about the sweater pulling weirdly as I try to get it adjusted around my wheelchair. I know it might seem odd to be talking about a detail that is basically hidden by my wheelchair, but it’s an adaptive feature for me and I love it!
In fact, I love the sweater so much that I already bought it in navy, too. I can already tell I’m going to be wearing them a lot.
