Thursday's Work-Appropriate Clothing Item: V-Neck Sweater

From Ann Taylor Loft. A friend recently purchased this v-neck sweater with three-quarter length sleeves in the pictured deep teal and deep rose. Both look fabulous on her and are perfect for her business casual work environment: she intends to pair them with black or deep gray slacks. The sweater also would pair nicely with a full suit.

The neckline features two-layered ribbed trim, which adds a subtle flair to the sweater. However, the v-neck is a bit low and the fabric is a bit see-through; as such, I would suggest wearing a cami underneath. In addition to the two pictured colors, the sweater comes in seven other colors, including a "majestic plum" that I am very fond of. The sweater is made from 100% pima cotton.

The sweater is $39.50. My friend got 2 for $49.50 in the store: buy one, get the second for $10. Online, if you buy one, you get the second 50% off: so, 2 for $59.25. Find the sweater here.
