Stylish, Affordable Black Sweaters

Q. I recently bought a few shirts that could use a black sweater to go along with them, but I am having a difficult time tracking down one that is cute and affordable.

-Basic not Boring

A. A black sweater is a classic and every woman should own a turtleneck and a v-neck or cardigan. But the sweaters don’t have to be dull in shape or style. For a sweater to stand apart in your wardrobe, look for extra details like a puffed sleeve, buttons in non-standard places, 3/4 sleeves and embroidery. All these sweaters are under $100:

    Great suggestions! A nice black sweater that is semi-basic can certainly be an important staple in anyone’s wardrobe.

    Another suggestion, just in case, could be Anthropologie’s Perovskia Cardigan in Black ($88)
