Perpetual Wardrobe: Cashmere sweater

What: *Cashmere, like Mohair it comes from goats, not sheep. Because the goats produce usable hair in small quantities, the finished product can be costly. Cashmere blended with other fibers is a less expensive alternative than pure cashmere.

 

Wear: 

Cashmere: Hanna Lee Style

Ralph Lauren cream shift dress, turquoise Autumn cashmere sweater, grandma’s gold necklace

Wear this look on dates (probably a different neckline for the date ready wardrobe) in the boardroom or to a family festivity.  You’re set to go!  We love pieces that get us more than three looks!

Whom:  

If you are looking for the most bang for your buck- choose a versatile core neutral (I.e black, navy, tan) sweater/cardigan.   J.Crew has great cashmere cardigans.

White and Warren is great, especially for scarves.

Autumn Cashmere (above)  for great color options.
