When I can’t wear sweatpants all day, I reach for sweater dresses, which are always warm but nonetheless attractive. The J. Crew Long-sleeve Everyday Cashmere Crewneck Dress is a new(ish) addition to my closet: it’s not very interesting, but it’s a great everyday basic that’s easy to dress up–or down.
FIT: The fit is true-to-size and the cut is thin but not body-hugging. It doesn’t have a defined waist, so you’ll need to add a belt to make it fit. On me, at 5’2″, the dress in size XXS is knee-length.
Material: J. Crew’s “everyday cashmere” is made entirely of cashmere and is lightweight, but it’s not the same as Grade A cashmere (which has extra-long fibres and strong yarns). It will most certainly pill after a few seasons, but it starts off soft (not scratchy) and isn’t lightweight or sticky.
