Cashmere, don’t you just love it? So do we!
We especially love it now the mercury has dipped, we have to scrape ice off the windscreen and do our daily commute in freezing temperatures.
On icy-cold days, what could be more alluring than being snuggled inside a cashmere sweater or a cashmere cardi and laughing at the cold weather! Because cashmere is truly warm. Even a percentage of cashmere mixed with wool will keep you warm, while pure cashmere will make sure you’re truly toastie…
We are especially enamoured of the John Lewis cashmere range, where they combine high quality yarn with great value and, of course, all the fashion details we crave.
When it comes to buying cashmere, we think you can go a little more classic. Treat your cashmere with TLC, and it will last for years and years.
Here are our top John Lewis cashmere picks:
We think this basic sweater in 100% pure cashmere is a “keeper”. It is available in sizes 8 to 18 and in 18 colours, from on-trend berry and camel, to perennials such as black, navy and grey.
If you are seeking a simple little cashmere cardigan, to pop on under a coat, or layer over a shirt or tee, you’ll love this one in 100% pure cashmere. Also available in sizes 8 to 18 and in 18 colours, from fashion shades to brights to wardrobe basics.
V-necks are key for the current season. We love this beauty, again in 100% pure cashmere. In a great range of size and colours, wear it alone or layered over a shirt or a simple tee, and just add a necklace.
We love this marled Donegal knit in 100% cashmere. It makes a change from straight- up black or grey. Perfect worn alone over jeans but also great over a crisp white shirt and a black pencil skirt.
We are big fans of Hush, which has landed at John Lewis this season. We especially love the slouchy cut and slightly scooped neckline of this 100% pure cashmere sweater, available in black, camel, red and charcoal.
As we said, the V-neckline is important right now. This one is longer so especially good for making hips look slimmer. It is, of course, also in 100% pure cashmere and available in sizes 8 to 18. This beauty is available in 7 colours, including silver-grey, camel, cobalt and black.
We are also in lust with this off-the-shoulder sweater in, naturally, 100% pure cashmere. A perfect length and cut to style with culottes or wide-leg trousers, it is available in three colours: black, pale blue and red.
When do you love to wear your cashmere? For work, dinner or chilling out at home…
