It’s cozy and great for "steal wealth dressing," per a shopper.
One of my favorite things about being a fashion editor is watching the style metamorphosis of those in the spotlight. Just think of Taylor Swift’s 2008 country princess phase, which is now replaced by sleek blazers and ankle-breaking platforms. Or, look at how Michelle Obama’s wardrobe shifted from sparkly gowns to sophisticated pant suits. But, IMO, Meghan Markle has had one of the great style transitions, and it’s all thanks to her effortless closet basics.
Full of knitted vests, timeless flats, and stylish button-ups, Markle has crafted the ideal capsule wardrobe. If she wears it, I want it, because I know it will seamlessly integrate into my lineup. There’s just one problem; Markle’s picks are sometimes a tad out of my price range (hey, I’d flaunt my Cartier if I could, too). But don’t get it twisted — Markle wears totally affordable pieces, as well, like the J.Crew Giselle v-neck sweater, which is currently 53 percent off.
J.Crew Giselle V-Neck Sweater Blazer
Markle originally wore the now $75 blazer to the 2023 Invictus Games, styling it with Chanel cap-toe flats, a black top, and paperbag shorts. The sweater features a soft cotton blend, pockets, and gold-toned hardware. I especially love how relaxed the fit is while still looking professional and polished. While her exact color is currently unavailable, there are still four fully in-stock hues, such as brown, red, khaki, and black.
Not only is it a Markle-worn sweater, but it’s comfy and ideal for "stealth wealth dressing,” according to shoppers. “It adds formality to an ordinary sweater look and also adds a casual elegance that elevates any blouse or top,” said one shopper. “Beautiful, stylish and practical! Stealth wealth dressing at its finest!” Better yet, you can style it with a bodysuit, jeans, and heeled booties. Don't be ashamed to wear it over an elegant dress for a wedding, or button it up for a work interview. It can even become a bit sexy by letting it hang off of your shoulders for a girls’ night out look. The ways you can wear the J.Crew sweater are endless, allowing you to don it any and everywhere.
Though, it wouldn’t be worth it if J.Crew’s Giselle sweater wasn’t warm. Thankfully, it is. Customers call it the “perfect transitional sweater” and a “wonderful fall jacket.” The lightweight layer traps heat without being too bulky, so you can easily layer (or wear alone, as the aforementioned shopper advised.) Pack it in your purse or backpack to always have it on hand so you can always be prepared for the fluctuating fall weather.
There’s no telling when the $75 cardigan will shoot back up to full price, or worse yet, sell out completely. Because once Markle wears something, it rarely stays in stock for long. So, secure your J.Crew Giselle V-neck sweater blazer for 53 percent off while you still can.
