What’s the first question that comes to mind the second we reach our closets? For most of Us, it’s coming up with a complete outfit in one smooth step. It’s as if we’re automatically programmed to think of a full head-to-toe look from start to finish. Yet, so often we forget one minor detail: A complete outfit cannot be created without individual pieces, which are often the last thought that comes to mind.

So, what’s the solution here? Well, we’d suggest reframing the way we go about choosing our daily outfits. Instead of thinking about the finished look first, let’s consider each piece one by one. Need help to get started on this new mindset? Add this lightweight cashmere piece to your closet since it can do all the heavy lifting when creating our day-to-day ensembles.

Trends come and go but what remains the same forever? Classic pieces, much like this Saks Fifth Avenue Collection Featherweight Cashmere Shell.

When it comes to this Featherweight Cashmere Shell, it’s best to think of it like an investment piece. Similar to our favorite handbag, this sweater will not lose its value over time. In fact, we’re confident it’s stock will only increase as the years go on, especially since this Saks exclusive sweater will seamlessly transition in and out of our wardrobes on the regular. Whether we select the “navy dusk,” “sailor blue” or even the “snow” white hue, each color option is timeless.

The slim knit shell has such subtle and simple features. Just look at the scoop neck front that’s perfectly paired with a sleeveless design. Together the two are classic yet chic enough when paired with a matching blazer or cardigan.

We’re major fans of the ultra-luxe cashmere material it’s crafted from. It’s the soft-to-touch fabric that doesn’t just look baby smooth but it actually feels that smooth. It simply exudes elegance and is just as amazing as our dearly beloved cashmere sweaters or wraps that we’ve acquired over the years. Yet, unlike those pieces, this sleek shell is a bit more wearable than the others.

Remember how we called this shell an investment? We actually meant it! This piece can be worked and reworked into our wardrobes a dozen times over, consistently. Since it’s easily paired with a topper, we can wear it year-round, unlike some of our sweaters. It’s so polished that it’s appropriate in any personal or professional setting and will be appropriate almost always. Need an example of what exactly to wear here? No problem!

When looking for a sleek and sophisticated ensemble, we’ve got it covered! Tuck the shell into a pair of silk tailored trousers. Continue styling this look by adding a leather mule and matching tote. It’s a super chic outfit that will bring the “wow” factor not only to work but after, as well. Head to date night or just drinks with the girls by making a few minor adjustments. Add a black bootie or leather jacket for an edgier element or keep it fun and flirt with a strappy stiletto and knee-length cardigan.

No matter where we go, this cashmere shell is the foundation piece in any closet.
