The Rush to Christmas – AKA the Most Wonderful And Expensive time of year – many of us try to cut back or stop shopping for clothes altogether. If instead you I am still on the hunt for new-season items, chances are you might stick with the sales (bring Black Friday, right?). But rather than relying solely on discounts, I’m sharing my proven street buys which I love because they look expensive, plus, don’t break the bank. Last week I wrote about the Zara blazer I’m obsessed with. This week it’s all about the sweater.
& Other Stories has a TDF mock neck style that I’ve been wearing for years now. The soft sleeves and soft fabric make it very comfortable and perfect for wearing over a t-shirt or wearing under a thick coat. Meanwhile, its slightly taller collar gives it a super budget-friendly feel. I love wearing mine to work with wide leg trousers and a pair of loafers. Or, if I go out on the weekend, with black jeans and combat boots. The third option? Paired with a petticoat or skirt dress and a pair of boots. Basically, there are many ways you can style this sweater.
As far as color options go, I’m a big fan of sage green, which you can see filming my vacation here (with an oversized garden hat I found on our Airbnb, ofc).

Remember, to prolong the life of your favorite sweaters, avoid washing them too often. Also, store them folded in a drawer instead of a hanger if you can so they keep their shape. Of course, over time, all sweaters and even coats can start to sag. The solution? A cheap but effective de-piller, also known as a fabric shaver – read my review of my favorite £18 Amazon style here. But I digress, back to the sweater!
This is the green style in question:
Aaaae I also have it in powder blue:
This sweater is one of & Other Stories’ classic pieces, which means it’s available in loads of other colors too:
Happy shopping, folks!
