When you’re heading out for a weekend, you have to be prepared for a whole mess of things. For instance, what happens when you’re outside at night and the temperature starts to dip so that your shirt can’t keep you warm? The proper answer to that is that you throw on a sweater. This is why one of the items you need to pack is J. Crew’s Cashmere Sweater. It’s light enough that it won’t make you overheat, but it also has enough substance that it won’t leave you cold. It’s the perfect layering piece as you can wear it over a t-shirt, dress shirt, or under a blazer and will give you a different look for a different climate. Made from Loro Piana cashmere, these guys are some of the best sweaters we’ve seen. They also come in so many colors that any person can find something they’ll like. We suggest going for a more conservative navy or heather grey, but if you’re a sartorial stud you should look to their dark purple. Throw it in that Billy Reid Weekender and you won’t regret it. You can get it at J. Crew for $188.
