Cocoon yourself in cashmere with the softest, most sumptuous pieces to buy now

As one of the world’s finest wool fibres, cashmere is as chic and sophisticated as it is soft and utterly warm. Taking classic knitwear to the next level, anything rendered in cashmere is guaranteed to become a sartorial mainstay in the cold months, whether it’s a favourite cardigan, some cashmere sweat pants, or even a pair of simple socks. An essential piece of the winter wardrobe puzzle, cashmere is back and better than ever this season with a raft of local and international designer options to suit any style or need. Here, we round up our picks of the new cashmere cohort, so that you can add a sumptuous twist to your winter looks.

Womenswear

There really is a kind of cashmere to suit any kind of taste or body shape, ranging from uber-feminine sweaters in soft, pastel tones, to basic but chic base layers, to structured overcoats in darker, more severe tones. Here, we recommend taking a layered approach — a sweater-vest or a cardigan for everyday pursuits, paired with some outerwear for when it’s time to venture out of the house.
