Looking for...fitted knits

On colder days when the blouse / blazer combo seems too formal for the office, knitwear is the perfect solution. Looser knits can easily veer toward the too casual (or worse - frumpy) spectrum of things, but fitted knits work well with slacks as well as skirts of different lengths.

Criteria
- High quality (ideally some cashmere)
- Versatile
- Long-lasting
- Not too long (waist-length is fine)
- Long sleeved
- Ideally not crew-necked

Findings


Black wool / cashmere, Jaeger
Black viscose / wool, Boss Orange

Gray wool / cashmere, Jaeger – might be a bit too loose-fitting
Gray viscose / cashmere, East

Navy viscose, Hobbs
Plum silk / cotton, Jigsaw

Blush pink cashmere, J.Crew
Dark pink cashmere, Crumpet
