Few wardrobe items are chic and comforting—but soft, refined cashmere is just that. Once sweater weather hits, we want to drape ourselves from head-to-toe in the deliciously cozy and luxurious fibre. That’s right, when it comes to cashmere, why stop at sweaters? The versatile fabric works great woven into pants, dresses, and even sheets. We put together all the cashmere staples from soft socks to hip joggers so you can incorporate this winter wardrobe essential into just about every item in your closet and beyond. And the best part about splurging on cashmere is a guaranteed return on investment. This timeless fabric ages just as well as your luxury leather bags and with a little care will last you years to come. So whether you're stepping up your work-from-home loungewear or bundling up for outdoor meetups this winter, cashmere will help keep you polished, sophisticated, and most importantly, warm.
