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 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!
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.
