The one thing I feel I never have quite enough of is cashmere jumpers. They may be a pain to wash (if like me you’re prone to accidentally shrinking things) but they feel gorgeous and luxurious and are so damn classically cool.
But just because it’s luxurious doesn’t mean it has to be ridiculously expensive. I’ve searched the high street and found the best options for £125 and under.
A simple, round neck plain cashmere jumper is a total capsule wardrobe staple. In an ideal world I’d have at least a couple – a grey one and a black or navy. I tend to buy oversize rather than super fitted because I prefer that “can’t really be bothered” boyish look.

In my “dream life” I spend a lot of time sitting by a fire with a great book and a giant glass or red wine. Wrapped up in a big cashmere jumper (probably over a pair of luxe leggings).

My hunt for cashmere cardigans wasn’t as successful as the jumper search. Lots of boring granddad options and not much more. but I did manage to find this…
if you see any options on your shopping travels give me a shout!
