16 luxury cashmere pieces to add to your winter wardrobe
Irresistibly warm, ethically produced and surprisingly affordable, this is cashmere at its very best
There’s no denying the perennial appeal of cashmere. Finer and softer than wool, it feels both comforting and sophisticated, not to mention its ability to stand the test of time in today’s ephemeral fashion climate. At John Lewis & Partners we are committed to providing the most sustainable and traceable cashmere on the market, alongside coveted cashmere designs from our curated brands.
Looking for quality and affordability in equal measure? Here’s our edit of the best cashmere pieces under £150, from the classic where-everywhere rollneck to statement colour-block knits. Braving the cold suddenly seems far more tempting.
The easy rollneck
Every chic winter wardrobe will benefit from a cashmere rollneck or two. Opt for neutral colours like cream or oatmeal, or try this season’s favourite reds or blues. How to style it? Try under a pinafore dress, over a printed maxi skirt or worn on casual days with your favourite pair of jeans.
For days when you want to stay warm but also stand out, add colour to your cashmere arsenal. This season, cashmere is awash with sunset colours – think bright marigold, fiery fuchsia and burnt orange.
If brights wash you out, colour-blocking may be a better route for adding colour to your cashmere. From bold stripes to subtle pops on hems and sleeves, this is proof that cashmere doesn’t have to be plain.
Wrapping up warm can be tricky, with multiple layers proving less than chic. But choose wisely and you can steer clear of the Michelin Man effect. Cashmere accessories are far less bulky than your average winter add-ons – extra points for a so-now palette of grey and baby blue.
