A Super Cheap Cashmere Sweater That Truly Looks Designer

The Cashmere Sweater of My Dreams

We all love a super high-end designer piece hanging in our closet. But sometimes that’s not possible. That’s why I get so excited when I find similar options for less! Below, you’ll find my new favorite sweater from AQUA that looks just like a popular designer sweater!

AQUA Sweaters

You all know that AQUA at Bloomingdale’s is a go-to brand for me when looking for sweaters…especially cashmere sweaters! They have gorgeous and high-quality sweaters that are also affordable! I wanted to highlight this sweater because I LOVE a 2-in-1… already layered sweater option. It creates that layered look without adding bulk. It’s also already done for you… so it’s effortless.

The sweater is also an amazing alternative to the more expensive Brochu Walker layered sweater. I styled a Brochu Walker sweater and another layered sweater dress in this post. Click here if you want more layered sweater inspiration.

Jeans

I just added these jeans to my jean-drobe and I love them! They are by Mother, have a cool gray wash, and edgy side zip on the ankle. I’m looking forward to wearing these this fall and winter. If you’re tired of your dark wash skinny jeans and want to change up your denim…these are perfect! Also, the length works well on me. As a reminder, I’m 5’4″. If you are taller, they will be more like true ankle jeans, which is a great look too!

Shoes

My python slingbacks are by Topshop! I recently did an edgy lookbook featuring these heels. You can watch that here. The shoes are sold out but I found some very similar ones by Alexander Wang. They’re a little pricey so if you’re looking to recreate the look, take a look at these python pumps!

  1. erin, the struggle is real. I couldn’t take hrt or birth control for the symptoms. I used an otc Estroven. it takes about a month to build up in your system but it worked for me. the weight gain is a struggle. i got some control with exercise but there were times i felt like i was possessed i could eat a package of cookies and not know i was eating. i’ve been menopausal for many years now. please know many of us have been there.
