As a great example of ways to add contrasting colors, consider the Moonlight Cap Sweater by designer Laurie b.  This fashion forward sweater is available in white and during winter we love to wear it over long sleeve scoop necks in black or any color to add a little edge to the look.  Our favorite top to wear under this sweater is the Long Sleeve Scoop Neck by Splendid.  It is a great fabric and has a sheer look to it.  Available in a variety of colors including white that long sleeve scoop neck is the perfect complement for the Moonlight Cap Sweater. This sweater is a great way to layer in additional winter white fashion.

The Audrey wrap, also by designer Laurie b. features a luxurious knit in Ivory with a subtle contrasting tie at the waist in tan to give it just a hint of color.  With a beautiful fabric and classic feminine design, this wrap is a great winter sweater.

A lighter weight piece that is a great complement for your winter white fashion wardrobe is the Very Light Jersey Draped Cardigan by Splendid.  Available in a variety of clothing including white, this light weight cardigan has a flowing look and long length which capitalizes on two great fashion trends this season – the long length and the sheer lightweight fabric.  You’ll see a variety of similar light weight fabrics such as burnout again this season.

For a different look, consider the Nona ¾ length sleeve ruffle top by Velvet.  This winter white top features a ruffle accenting the v neckline and is slightly gathered in back.  We love the classic look of this top with the feminine touches and best of all the comfortable, baby jersey cotton fabric which is so wearable and comfortable.  It is long enough to wear with a wide belt if you are looking for longer length tops.

If you’re looking for great winter white accessories, consider one of our favorite necklaces featuring large white turquoise beads with specks of sand color on them.  For contrast, the designer utilized small shimmering gold colored beads in between the large turquoise beads.  All of this is set off by a copper chain for additional color.

There is truly no shortage of options for different ways to wear winter white fashion this season.  You’ll find a variety of ways to create great individual style while focusing your wardrobe on winter white.  As you create your own individual style winter white fashion, don’t forget that you may want just a pop of color and great jewelry is a great way to add a little pop or sparkle to help break up a monotone looking outfit.

Lightweight Cashmere Cardigan Sweater

Finding the perfect lightweight cashmere cardigan sweater can sometimes feel like finding a needle in a haystack.  It is often difficult to find just the right cardigan and then to find one that is made of lightweight cashmere can seem impossible.   We have found it much easier to solve this dilemma by searching for pieces that have cashmere in them.  The best part about cashmere is the luxuriously soft feeling of the knit.  We have also found that you can find some great pieces that include knits other than cashmere to give you that soft luxurious feel.  Consider a few of these great cardigan sweaters as examples.

First, the Laurie B. Milan Sweater features 30% cashmere blended with nylon and viscose.  The blended knit still has the softness of cashmere and the great viscose knit that is silky soft as well.  This light-weight sweater knit is a great short wrap cardigan features a tie that can go in front or in back depending on how you like to wear it.  It also features a lightly gathered seam at the empire waist line giving it added elements of detail.  In addition, the wide ¾ length sleeve something you don’t see on every wrap these days.  You’ll love the rich Truffle brown color and the ivory Parmesan color too.  This sweater is certainly versatile and works as a great substitute for a blazer at work or to throw over your tank top on a cool night out.

The viscose knit is actually one of our favorite substitutes for cashmere and of course it is much more economical. In our opinion the viscose actually has a silkier feel than the cashmere.  Viscose is made of a blend of natural and man-made components that can be made into a rayon fabric.  Viscose rayon has a great silky appearance and soft texture and yet breathes similarly to cotton.

Consider the Audrey Wrap that is made of 78% viscose and 22% nylon.  It has a smooth, silky texture that is so soft and luxurious to touch.  Of course the Audrey Wrap also made by Laurie B. features a great wrap design with a faux wrap at the base of the sweater with a contrasting color shimmery tie around the waist.  The cuffs and the waist are fitted giving the wrap a great hugging fit.  Our favorite aspect of this wrap is the fabric.  The viscose blend makes for a great fabric that you seriously won’t want to take off.

Finally, the Gable Stripe Cardigan also by Laurie B. also uses a viscose blend to give you a great feeling knit fabric.  This distinctive cardigan features a dramatic contrasting zipper that is front and center in this distinctive cardigan, the Gable Stripe grey and black pattern looks so classy and elegant.  Laurie B. still manages to weave in fashion forward elements with the dolman flared sleeve on this sweater, a scoop neckline and the contrasting black trim around the neckline and cuffs and hem.   Again you would not believe how luxuriously soft the knit on this sweater feels.  It is also made from a viscose, nylon blend with 78% viscose and 22% nylon so of course it feels super soft and very comfortable.  One of our favorite looks is wearing this over a long sleeve black top with a black skirt and boots in the winter.

All of these are great examples of lightweight sweaters that incorporate cashmere or a great alternative to cashmere to give you a luxuriously soft lightweight wrap in a distinctive style.
