Cashmere doesn’t have to be an extravagant expense.

Consider this State Fusio style (available in seven great neutrals, all under $60) to be a gateway into the world of cashmere—an instant upgrade that can be paired with off-the-clock jeans and sneakers or on-duty khakis and wingtips.

Best Champion Hoodie on Amazon

Champion LIFE Men's Reverse Weave Po Hood-Oversized Flock Script.

Champion Life Reverse Weave Hoodie

This classic activewear brand has been making a fashion comeback in recent years. It seems that at one point, everyone’s dad had a ratty gray Champion logo sweatshirt—but luckily this hoodie has been updated for 2020 with serious street cred. We’re partial to the bright yellow version (there are subtler colors, as well), but it’s the down-the-arm logo that really makes this a must-have in our book. It’s cool and comfortable without looking unkempt.
