Lightweight, warm, and soft, cashmere is an attainable luxury. Derived from the cashmere goat, these animals live in freezing climates and thus produce a super-warm cashmere undercoat. And while not nearly as cold as the -30 degree Himalayas, winters on the East Coast can be brutal. The solution? Throw on a cashmere scarf and go. This traditionally outdoor staple transitions easily to your indoor wardrobe as well—just pair with a turtleneck and jeans or a sweater and slip skirt. An essential and basic piece, a cashmere scarf is something you will have in your wardrobe for years to come.
Take a cue from our Creative Director, Wanyi Jiang, and style yours with a cashmere sweater, leather pants, a heavy coat, and beret. Or our fashion assistant, Shelby Comroe, who pairs it with a bright puffer to give a sophisticated touch to an otherwise sporty piece. No matter how you style it, a cashmere scarf like our picks below will stand the test of time.
