A whopping 21 V-neck sweaters

20

I do love a good V-neck sweater: they’re so classic and chic and are perfection over a button-down, or a striped tee, or even on their own if they’re soft enough. I’ve got a chunky black V-neck and a lightweight black one, but I’m looking to expand my horizons, and am considering this pre-styled number that cleverly looks like it’s layered with a shirt.

I really want this ribbed red sweater because I’ve still got a thing for red; here’s a cheaper option.

I just love how big and huggy this navy sweater is.

The acid yellow is nicely unexpected, and I like the butt coverage of the hem.

The exposed seams here are a nice touch, and the price is crazy good.

I like Equipment’s cashmere—it’s nice and thin—and this heather grey is just exactly perfect.

I am all in favor of the bit of extra length on this cashmere blend sweater.

This short-sleeved number is rather sweet and feminine.

I really love a white sweater (this is a bit more of an oatmeal, I admit, but you know what I mean) and this one looks so cozy.

The only logo I am a complete sucker for is the Comme des Garcons Play heart, and so this is pretty high on my wish list.

Such an excellently chunky option, at a good price.

Everlane’s ribbed cashmere V-neck has such a graceful, rounded V.

I can’t tell if this is a leopard or a giraffe print, but I do think it’s pretty cute.

The neckline here is dramatic in a way I can really get behind.

A very minimal, super-sophisticated choice.

 

This is the prettiest pale pink, and it looks so excellently fluffy too.

 

This comes with a hood, which is fun, and I always appreciate a pocket.

A single stripe adds the just-right amount of interest here.

Such a good berry-ish hue, and I like the chevron pattern of the knit.

This is like a very modern version of this classic L.L. Bean sweater.

The sleeves here are so cool and sculptural.

    Sadly, I don’t even buy wool clothing any more because of moths, so it’s cotton sweaters for me.

    I love so many of these, and they give me ideas of what to look for when shopping v-necks…slouchy shoulders, longer sleeves, the red!!, the exaggerated neck, etc etc.

    The red sweater is everything. I have two Everlane v-neck sweaters––one cotton and one cashmere and they both wear well and the cashmere (fingers crossed) has yet to pill (it is not on heavy rotation because winters in Texas are not that cold). I can highly recommend both.

    I hate to be a buzz kill for anyone who thinks the Mango purple sweater is as beautiful as I do, but I got burned last year by buying a Mango sweater that was an acrylic blend. It got pilly and out of shape almost immediately and although the color and style were cool I wound up tossing it after a few wearings. It was clearly a case of you get what you pay for. I think it’s one of those sites where everything is photographed fabulously and looks great on the models, but IRL….not so much. I’ve gotten very lucky a few times ordering from the site, but I was recently in\two Mango stores in Europe and they were polyester hell. So buyer beware.

    Cedar always works like a charm for me, but perhaps that is one of the natural solutions you already tried.

    A rather unglamorous question for the group- How on earth do you keep moths from eating your sweaters? I lost my very favorite sweater and many others to moths this year and can’t seem to get rid of the damn things. I tried natural repellants with no success and then went back to old fashioned moth balls, but now all of my sweaters smell dreadful. Any advice?

      I had a bad moth problem awhile back. Tried everything, but the only thing that worked was to first do a THOROUGH closet clean (look up directions—involves taking everything out of closets, wiping them down with washcloths and gentle soap, vacuuming thoroughly), and then using moth pheremone traps you can buy on amazon. These have worked well for me:

      I use cedar drawer liners. I think you can get some version of them just about anywhere––I know The Container Store carries them and I think Target as well. I just inherited a cedar chest from my mother which preserved her wedding dress, some baby clothes and a couple of my grandmother’s dresses since the 1940’s and nary a hole. Amazing, yes?

      Since I got two feisty, young cats, the only moths we’ve found in our house are dead ones. It’s crazy, since we used to have a real problem with moths.

      Also, for once my favorite sweater of the bunch is also the cheapest. That never happens 🙂

    I thoroughly cleaned and vacuumed my closet, washed and froze all sweaters and wool things (to kill the eggs) and then bagged everything separately to store. This seems to have worked. I have a cedar closet in my new house but I think it’s the isolation that works, more so than the cedar.

    Also, can I be annoyed that Mango only has sweaters in sizes S and M?

      Yes!! Me too, and it’s not just Mango … a lot of these only go up to a size 10ish, which is just getting started afaic.

      I still like to look though. : )

      Yes, and their Violeta line does not carry the same items in the L or XL sizes.

      My heart sinks when I click on a cute piece and see that it’s from Mango. The vast majority of their items don’t come in anything larger than a 8 and they often don’t even bother to offer a L. Many bloggers I follow seem to have a fascination with Mango and it’s most discouraging.

    The cheaper version of that red ribbed sweater is actually cuter – I love the sleeves – and comes in a bunch of colors, and also extended sizes!

    What an incredible slate of v-neck sweaters! There’s nothing better than the sexiness of a cashmere v-neck. I always feel sleek and put together when I wear one with my skinny jeans and a pair of ankle boots. I love The Deborah (price kills me, tho!), EF Long grey one, and the navy by &otherstories. Thanks, Kim!

    The sophisticated one by Mango looks good. Although they don’t show it straight up as is, rather it’s always tucked in or the model is sitting down. Makes me wonder…

    Also, the Shopbop one. When I buy this kind of item, which I like to do because it’s more interesting than the usual, I can’t fit my arms into a coat. I mean…what does one do? Is there some easy strategy I haven’t heard about yet, or do people suffer in silence, or do they generally know better than to ‘go there’ with non-standard styles? thx~

      Cape or Poncho? I look like a linebacker when I try to wear a coat with oversized sweaters!

    I put my cashmere sweaters in a plastic zipper thingy from the Container Store. It seems to be working.
