MEET THE ESSENTIALS

We launched our Essential Collection in 2014 out of a desire to offer the wardrobe staples we all need year-round. We distilled each classic shape to its essence, obsessing over every detail of the fit, neckline, length and shape. The Essentials represent the perfected version of the timeless silhouettes you love in a mix of evergreen neutrals and on-trend pops of color. Did we mention all the exclusive shades you can only find right here on WhiteandWarren.com? Whether you need the perfect black Cashmere Crewneck sweater or striped Cashmere Turtleneck to pair with neutral pants for work, we have the building blocks of your sweater wardrobe right here in our Essentials. Read on to find out more about what makes each style so special and necessary.

  • ESSENTIAL CASHMERE CREWNECK

    Meet our Essential Cashmere Crewneck: The perfect rounded-neck, long sleeve pullover sweater. The neckline is just wide enough that you can still pair it with a killer necklace, but still true to a classic crewneck shape. The overall silhouette of the sweater is semi-fitted so there is plenty of room for layering, but you would need to size up if you want an oversize fit (this style runs true to size). The sweater hits mid-hip on most women, which allows for the flexibility of tucking it into a higher waistband or letting it drape over your favorite jeans. We offer the Essential Cashmere Crewneck in a wide range of colors and offer web-exclusive hues in an ongoing program. Watch our fun video on how to style it six different ways!

  • ESSENTIAL CASHMERE TRAPEZE CARDIGAN

  • ESSENTIAL CASHMERE TRAPEZE CARDIGAN

    The Essential Cashmere Trapeze Cardigan is the longest running style in our Essential Collection with devoted fans who stock up on neutrals and new trend colors every season. The Trapeze Cardigan is the longest and the loosest of all the Essential cardigans with no front closure. The mid-thigh style drapes beautifully from the shoulder with long sleeves that can easily be pushed up. This swing style works on almost every body type and is perfect for tossing over a sheath dress for the office. The Essential Cashmere Trapeze Cardigan is available in an extended array of classic neutrals along with subtle seasonal shades.

    The Essential Cashmere Turtleneck is a winter must-have, coming in both solids and stripes. Cozy and sleek, the Essential Cashmere Turtleneck will effortlessly elevate any look with its straight, semi-fitted silhouette and slim long sleeves. Tuck the cashmere turtleneck into a wide leg trouser for a work-ready, sophisticated look, or keep it casual on the weekend with jeans. The sweater hits at the low-hip for a little bit coverage, but still a great length for tucking. This runs true to size, so size up for a loose fit.

  • ESSENTIAL CASHMERE V NECK

  • ESSENTIAL CASHMERE V NECK

    We adjusted our Essential Cashmere V Neck to be slouchier, sexier and easier than ever in early 2018. We made the V a little wider to show off your collarbone, added a drop shoulder and made the overall fit a little looser. This sweater is amazingly versatile, moving easily from a date night out to layered over a favorite tee for a casual weekend. The long arms end in ribbed trim, which can be folded back for more petite frames. The sweater hits at hip-length and can be easily bloused over for a roomier feel. This style runs true to size. We offer the V neck in a wide range of colors, including web exclusive shades. Our most popular color for the V neck is Admiral, and the office favorite is Charcoal.

    Comfort has never felt so luxurious. The Essential Cashmere Sweatshirt is the ultimate in low-key luxury. The long-sleeve sweater features an open crewneck, a casual raglan sleeve and a relaxed fit. The Essential Cashmere Sweatshirt is beloved for dressing up leggings for a luxe spin on athleisure or pairing with denim for a softly slouchy weekend style. This style fits true to size but is cut to be an easy fit with a loose ribbed bottom. The Heather Grey is a perennial favorite as a chic twist on the classic gray sweatshirt.

  • ESSENTIAL CASHMERE CREWNECK CARDIGAN

  • ESSENTIAL CASHMERE CREWNECK CARDIGAN

    The Essential Cashmere Crewneck Cardigan is the slimmest fitting of all the cardigans in our Essential Collection. The crewneck is a perfect complement for dresses or roundneck blouses, while the bracelet length sleeves are shorter than those of the other Essential cardigans. This classic cardigan is an ideal second layer for dresses with its just-below the natural waistline length. While this style runs true to size, you can size up for a looser, slouchier fit.

  • ESSENTIAL BOYFRIEND CARDIGAN

  • ESSENTIAL BOYFRIEND CARDIGAN

    The boyfriend worth committing to! Our Essential Boyfriend Cardigan offers all the ease and comfort you could want in the ultimate cozy knit. This cardigan is the in-between of the three Essential cardigans in terms of fit and length, ending just below the hip with a straight, slim fit. The front patch pockets and fine rib trim add thoughtful details to the classic shape, while the deep v neckline offers subtle sex appeal. The design team loves to see this style paired with the unexpected like a slinky slip dress, but it’s just as wonderful with your favorite leggings and sneakers. The Essential Boyfriend Cardigan comes in an edited range of neutrals.

  • ESSENTIAL CASHMERE TEE

  • ESSENTIAL CASHMERE TEE

    A truly seasonless piece, the Essential Cashmere Tee works equally well for cool summer nights as it does layered under the Essential Boyfriend Cardigan for a twist on the twin-set. This breathable short sleeve cashmere crewneck has a patch pocket on the front for a playful nod to classic pocket tees. The high-hip length is an ideal match for skirts and pants alike and can be easily tucked in or worn out. The semi-fitted shape means it’s the Goldilocks of fits—not too slim and not too baggy. Try it in a seasonal pop of color or wear it constantly in a go-to neutral.
