A cashmere jumper for Every Budget
With all this cold weather we have been having recently- cashmere has featured highly on my daily outfit picks, so I thought it might be helpful to do a “Top Picks” blog.
Suffice to say, there really is no better fabric for keeping you warm but not making you feel like you are swamped…its light, its cosy and it is efficient. In the last few years the cashmere market has boomed- and has evolved into an industry that now can produce incredible products within a much wider price range then previously achieved.
There are so many cashmere brands out there it can sometimes be hard to know which are the best and what would work for you…so I have done a edit of my favourites produced by small business; run by women- for women…a perfect combination in my eyes!
Top End: Elwin London
I discovered this brand when I was the Personal Shopper at the Cotswold Christmas Fair held at Daylesford in November and I have to admit I was bowled over by their range due to the fact that their jumpers are a more chunky cashmere but they still remain so light…you hardly notice you have it on! So warm, doesn’t bobble (I have worn mine probably 8 times and washed it once- no bobble in sight!) and it goes without saying that it is as soft as soft can be. They are at a higher price point but their designs are classic and timeless- so this could be a real investment piece for your wardrobe.
Mid-range: Wyse London
A fantastic brand that’s been around for a few years now and has a rainbow stripe that is instantly recognisable…! If you go for this just make sure the stripe is in the best place for you- avoid on the bust if you have a full bust, avoid on the hips if your hips are wider then your shoulders…put the stripes in “your best area” and they will do their work!
They love a sequin…
or star elbow patch ….
as well as a neon stripe…
Accessible: Arkell & Wills
This brand is close to my heart as it was set up by a two ladies who are local to me, in Cheltenham. Their range is brilliant- easy, wearable cashmere in great colours and designs…you can even personalise your jumper or hat with your chosen embellishment…such as a star, stags head or heart!
These two colours are SO wearable for those of your with a warm skin tone…stunning!
I love the fur trim around the neck line…really makes it more luxurious and saves you getting a cold neck!Dark grey poncho : £80
I hope that gives some inspiration…as usual- any questions juts let me know.
