Chanel Beige Cardigan/Dress

I am thinking beige recently. I saw this button down cashmere cardigan/dress while window shopping. A Chanel or any beige classic cardigan in any length is a must-have in a gal’s closet. There is something so classic and timeless about a beige long cardigan. I would wear a long cardigan as a dress like the mannequin on display with wide belt and a pair of knee high boots. Besides long cardigans as dresses, beige sweater dresses are also a classic element for nippy days of winter. After trying the long Chanel cardigan on, I like it more as a coat instead of a dress. Chanel beige cashmere cardigan show above retails for a mere price of $3355. Ouch....



Not wanting to spend too much, SG likes beige dresses and coat from Banana Republic.

-right, beige cashmere cardigan coat $550. SG would wear this cardigan with a wide belt as a dress like Chanel display.
Left, beige dress from BCBG $178 (It's much more stylish in person.)
Right, beige dress from Banana Republic $110 (SG's pick!)

So what about you gals, what color is in your mind these days and which beige piece is your cup of tea?

  10. I just love beige on others, but it's not for me. I could do with a camel cashmere cardi like this one, though.

    I quite liked the look of the Chanel on you, but I bet you could do just fine with one of the lower-priced models you show here.

  12. i've always loved beige! i love the fact that it will be always be classic, yet the lint won't show on it (like black) and it won't get too dirty after you wear it (like white)!

  13. I'm always all about black, I need to get away from the color tough. I think that the cheaper sweaters/dresses are actually cuter than the Chanel. I say go with one of them =)

  14. Hi there-its a shame the Chanel one is so pricy, it would be a timeless classic in the wardrobe. I'm loving the Banana Republic alternative the best too!
