The couple of weeks in between the end of summer and the beginning of fall are a special time. During this brief window, you get to indulge in oxymoron dressing: oversized sweaters with mini skirts, sleeveless turtleneck dresses with sandals, and if you’re Katie Holmes, a cashmere bra and matching cardigan.
When the actress stepped out in the look in late August, the internet was, to put it frankly, shook. The cashmere set, which retailed for $2,060 (the bra alone was $520), sold out immediately. (It’s now available for pre-order on Khaite’s website.) “Khaite cashmere bra” became a breakout search term on Lyst within a week. It was so free but fabulous, carefree but luxurious. Holmes was clearly onto something.
Sure, they’re incredibly comfortable and act as a secondary layer under your actual sweater. But $500 for a knit bra that feels appropriate only for one very specific time of year is a stretch for most shoppers. Luckily, there are ways to get the cozy-chic look for much, much less. (And, let’s be real: A bunch of brands will likely start rolling out their own takes on the bra/cardigan set, given how viral Holmes’ outfit went.) Ahead, check out some of our favorite cashmere bras $125 or less to wear everywhere this fall.
