Hello! This is my first post, and I have questions about sweaters. I am looking for sweaters for my work capsule: I would wear these with midi pleated skirts, cropped suit trousers, and denim - sometimes over a dress shirt, sometimes alone, sometimes under a blazer. I currently live in a rural area with no department or chain stores for an hour's drive, so everything is ordered online. I am still within six months postpartum, and *none* of my old work clothing fit - I am starting from scratch! I move for a new job in a new city (shopping options, yay!) in two weeks, but I need at least a week's worth of mix-and-match capsule items until I can get a sense of my new office culture, climate, and expectations.

1-2) I bought this Halogen cashmere and I want to keep it for color alone - it's great color at a great price, lightweight, and I think it works worn over a shirt and worn alone. I also bought it in grey but that may go back after seeing this blue. I didn't think I would like the split hem, but my hips are right at that spot and there is *no* pulling across the hem - so better drape! Does this look flattering over a shirt, though? It feels comfortable both ways.

I was also thinking of getting the BR washable Merino crew neck sweater Angie has posted. Has anyone with a larger chest tried it? The knit pattern looks like it might be more flattering for a larger chest than a flat-knit style crewneck. I wear a 34DDD/34F bra (US size), so I'm hesitant to try a crew neck - I haven't worn one in years!

Thanks for any thoughts!
