*In this late-night feature – which will run on Tuesday and Thursday of each week – I’ll gather up three fun items that are currently on sale online and share them with you! I would LOVE suggestions: Stylish wide-width pumps? Classic v-necked sweaters? Chandelier earrings? Petite dress slacks? What would you like to see featured?*
Sue requested a few picks for warm dressy/professional-looking sweaters, so here we go:
Land’s End Cotton Shaker Funnelneck Sweater – was $49, now $34.30
with code COZY and pin 8405
Now I know why Sue made this request: THERE ARE NO COZY SWEATERS LEFT IN THE WORLD. And the warm-looking ones that remain are casual, not dressy. The wool sweaters are thin Merino, the cashmere ones are generally so thin they’re see-through, and many designs either feature open stitching or 3/4 sleeves. Amazingly, cotton sweaters are typically the thickest available, and this Shaker knit funnelneck has nice long sleeves and a high neckline for warmth. Also comes in lilac, eggplant, ivory, tan, black gray, dark green, navy, red, orange, and periwinkle in sizes XS – XL. Size availability varies by color. Also available in petite, plus, and tall sizes.
Eddie Bauer Cross V-Neck Sweatshirt Sweater – was $70, now $35

I suppose the ribbed trim at the hem gives this garment something in common with sweatshirts, but it’s a cotton/nylon blend sweater-knit. So more sweater than sweatshirt, and in an elegant shape that makes in office-friendly. The deep v may require a cami, or you could always pin or stitch shut. Available in this pretty mulberry as well as red, gray, teal, pale blue, and purple in sizes XS – XXL. Size availability varies by color. Also available in petite, plus, and tall sizes.
Sag Harbor Crew-Neck Cashmerlon Sweater – was $46, now $19.94 – $23
Some people loathe acrylic sweaters and those people should move along because this crew neck is 100% acrylic. I’m of the opinion that natural fibers are typically a better bet, but know acrylic to be easy to care for and warmer than paper-thin Merino. This simple sweater comes in 17 colors in sizes S – XL. Size availability varies by color. Also available in plus sizes, and a v-neck version.
Vince Camuto Asymmetrical Hem Crewneck Sweater – was $99, now $59.50
Although those sleeves look a bit short on the model, they’re listed as full-length. This sweater has an unusual design that’s arty but still work-appropriate, and is made from a cotton acrylic blend. Available in this gray as well as ivory, cornflower, and pistachio green in sizes S- XL. This similar style doesn’t look quite as cozy, but comes in six colors in sizes 1X – 3X.
Sustainable resources for warm dressy/professional-looking sweaters:
- Everlane – Chunky knits and doubleknits in sleek, minimalist designs.
- Eileen Fisher – Ol’ EF does lots of lightweight knits, but there are warmer options, too, like this luxe cashmere turtleneck.
- Fair Indigo – Basics in solid colors and mostly cotton, but some styles like this funnel-neck look super cozy.
Other not-currently-on-sale resources for warm dressy/professional-looking sweaters:
- Woolovers – The cashmere blends tend to be a little thin and light, but the wool sweaters are quite warm. This simple wool v-neck comes in 23 colors!
- Land’s End – The “drifter” series is thicker than most others so try those first. Unfortunately, LE’s cashmere tends to be quite thin.
- L.L. Bean – Merino will likely be thin, but cotton and blends are loftier. This Shaker stitch pullover is a classic.
