Not to sound annoying, but I tend to be a picky shopper when it comes to sweaters. Maybe it’s because I can spot the difference between one that’s pricy and one that’s affordable, but regardless I have an eye for luxurious-looking knits. Now, while I wish I could always spring for the designer label that’s not always the case, which is why today is all about the type of sweater that’s actually affordable but doesn’t look it.
The reason a basic beige sweater looks more expensive than other knits is that it’s timeless and happens to look elevated with plenty of other simple closet staples. As many fashion people would agree (myself included), they’re versatile, too. Considering how you can pair the neutral hue with just about anything, the piece basically styles itself. So whether you reach for a cropped cardigan, a classic turtleneck, or a trendy sweater vest, peruse the best beige sweaters in my edit and get inspired by how fashion people wear them below.
