WONDERFUL WINTER WHITES

I love a white sweater for winter. My favorite is this wool-cashmere cable turtleneck from Everlane. I like the oversized fit and the quality is really good (the sweater keeps its shape after washing). Everlane is well known for their affordable & transparant prices and this beautiful sweater is only $130. I also love their woolen mittens featured below.
