Look for Less: Polka Dot Sweater

I am a huge fan of polka dots, how about you?! I am especially excited to see dots popping up everywhere lately.

While browsing through J.Crew’s new look book I discovered THESE fun cashmere sweaters. I was particularly drawn to the neutral camel color…shocker!

I know cashmere is amazeballs, but if I am going to buy cashmere it would have to be an end-of-season clearance item in a solid color I could wear year after year.

This item with its white dots and price tag do not meet the criteria! Wouldn’t it be fun though paired with a collared shirt peaking out with jeans or a pencil skirt?

I was happy when I found THIS similar look at Old Navy.

I’m telling ya…Old Navy is great sometimes. With frequent discount codes, free shipping on orders of $50, and most items being able to return at a store, there is no extra cost to ordering online.

I ordered this sweater immediately and was very happy when it arrived to find it so soft and the perfect weight for autumn and for layering. I actually prefer the black polka dots to the white, I think it will be easier to match with my winter clothes.

Have you found any favorite polka dots for the fall yet?

    Steal of a deal ~ cashmere lasts for years, unfortunately fashion/styles don’t!
    Who wants to be ‘stuck’ in a ‘time warp’ with an expensive polka dot sweater anyway……..I agree with you, the black dots look better!

    Love your sweater, but they no longer sell it. Any chance you’re selling yours?

    Linda, I had the worst luck. I wore this sweater to the hairdresser and it ended up with bleach all over it. I had only worn it twice! So frustrating. Good luck trying to find a similar one!
