Vince Cocoon Ribbed Sweater
I literally just bought this sweater. Luckily, I also scored a decent deal on it, otherwise I'd be awfully bitter right now. Regardless, I highly recommend this gorgeous sweater, particularly at this great price, courtesy of Neiman Marcus Last Call.

The Vince Cocoon Ribbed Sweater is made from a super soft yak/ wool blend. I know, yak sounds kind of crazy. Vince has put out a number of yak and yak-blend sweaters this season. I was doubtful about the yak mini-trend until I tried this one on. As a die-hard cashmere devotee, I can honestly say I can hardly tell the difference between this sweater and my favorite Vince cashmere concoctions. The blend is insanely soft and luxurious, and this sweater in particular is dense and lofty -- just what you want from a sweater in the dead of winter.

Beyond the super soft construction, this sweater also has a lot of unique style to it. The deep v-neck has half-length dolman sleeves and a variable rib knit. The really fun part is the faux wrap front. It's almost like there are two sweaters: a fitted one underneath, and then the faux wrap layer over top. It's so hard to tell in this mannequin picture, but the combination of the two knitted layers hangs really well when it's on an actual human -- the fitted layer shows off your form, while the faux wrap layer glides over the top, nicely disguising your mid-section.
