Thanks to their warmth and soft texture, the best cashmere scarves are an attainable luxury. Cashmere is derived from Kashmir goats, which live in freezing climates and thus produce a super-warm undercoat from which the soft fibers are brushed off and then spun into yarn to create clothes and accessories, like scarves and cashmere sweaters. And while not nearly as cold as the -30 degree Himalayas, winters on the East Coast and in the mountains can be brutal. One part of the solution? Throw on a cashmere scarf. This winter accessory transitions easily between your indoor and outdoor wardrobe—some of our favorite cashmere scarf outfit formulas include pairing yours with a turtleneck (opens in new tab) and jeans, or a sweater and slip skirt. (opens in new tab) An essential and timeless piece, a cashmere scarf is an item you'll have in your wardrobe for years to come.

No matter how you style yours—be it with a winter sweater, leather pants, a heavy coat and beret, or with a bright puffer for a sophisticated touch to an otherwise sporty piece—these are the best cashmere scarves topping our lists. Each one will stand the test of time.
