Cheap Thrill: A Cubic Sweater That Fits Squarely In Our Budget

Preen's cubic cashmere sweater was a stand-out piece on the fall '11 runways, but when we caught wind of the $1,330 price… Ooohee, we haven't felt this challenged since geometry (we were more calculus girls, ourselves). Thank the Bill Cosby sweater gods, because ASOS has a sweater with a similar-looking graphic and slim-cut style that's way more in line with our budget. Featuring sharper lines and a more vibrant design, the ASOS box-pattern sweater is $75.47, which is 5% of the Preen version's cost. How's that for some math?
