Is there any better feeling than slipping into a sumptuous, soft cashmere sweater on a blistering cold day? Its inviting, indulgent warmth makes it a perfect — and stylish — line of defense against harsh winter weather.
And while the best cashmere sweaters often have a reputation for being pricey or high-maintenance, there’s a reason for it: Unlike sheep’s wool, cashmere comes from the ultra-soft, superfine fibers from a goat’s undercoat, making it even smoother to the touch than traditional wool. Still, styles can vary by weight, heft, or warmth factor, though one thing’s for certain: It’ll be one of the most supple, cozy, and comfortable items in your closet.
The Oversized Breton
This merino wool and plush cashmere blend sweater is even softer than you’d think — and its dropped shoulder and oversized fit makes it the perfect pick for anyone who prefers a slouchy look for colder days ahead.
The Sweater Vest
Sweater vests are having a moment, and what better way to get in on the trend than with something that feels timeless and versatile, too? Emerging brand Sa Su Phi’s knitwear-heavy designs are made in Italy from cashmere and mohair.
The Crop Sweater
A bright color and a cropped fit give this cotton-cashmere blend sweater a decidedly casual vibe. Wear it on its own or layer it with a button-down for a sophisticated look.
This indulgently soft cardigan is made for layering, but looks just as chic on its own, too. Wear it with flowy slacks and slingback heels for an office-ready look, or with a pair of jeans and boots for a no-brainer weekend outfit.
The Cable Knit
Totême’s iteration of a traditional cable knit sweater isn’t so traditional thanks to its oversized swing silhouette and bright mustard hue.
A shawl collar in a three-gauge knit feels a bit more special than any old pullover.
This supersoft body-skimming turtleneck comes in black for the traditionalist, but the deep olive green hue is made to stand out.
Knitted in Nepal from a blend of 75 percent recycled cashmere, this oversized cardigan is the perfect wintertime substitute for a stiff blazer.
The Off-the-Shoulder Sweater
Who says cashmere sweaters have to be conservative? This off-the-shoulder, tight-knit ribbed sweater from Lisa Yang features a cropped silhouette for an evening-ready twist.
The iconic, athletic-inspired polo has finally been reimagined as a cozy winter staple. Its buttonless ribbed collar and wide fit at the shoulder lends a more comfortable, layer-able feel.
The Sweater Tee
A short-sleeve sweater usually splits the crowd, but this shrunken T-shirt style from State Cashmere is a guaranteed win. (The timeless cornflower blue color doesn’t hurt, either.)
The Striped Sweater
This modern striped cable knit cashmere sweater looks just as stylish tucked into a pair of trousers as it does with leggings and combat boots.
The Asymmetrical Sweater
Designer Aisling Camps is known for interesting silhouettes, fun details, and quality craftsmanship — and this asymmetric cutout sweater, crafted from recycled cashmere and wool, is no different. Just take a peek at the rolled neck and sleeve hems.
