Longer, chillier days mean the transition from autumn to winter is officially here and thankfully so is the clothing statement of the season – a high quality knit.

Whether you’re perfecting your work from home style or simply looking for a new cosy go to, a cashmere jumper can be a great investment piece for any and all wardrobes.

The cashmere jumper may have previously been an item reserved for the back of your grandmother’s wardrobe, but with new colour offerings and edgy cuts beyond the simple yet stylish crew neck, a cashmere jumper may just be the perfect addition for your wardrobe this season.

Cashmere is not just a soft and pretty face however, as the material itself is a renewable and natural resource. The thin strands of the wool allow for feather-light knits with maximum warmth, perfect for layering in the cooler months. The current move towards shopping for quality over quantity, means elevated basics and capsule pieces that are designed to transition beyond yearly seasons are now wardrobe must haves.

A cashmere jumper is as timeless as the perfect leather jacket or black dress so investing in one can provide an endless touch of luxury to your comfiest jeans as well as your favourite evening heel.

We tried out some of the best cashmere jumpers on the market right now to find the boldest cuts and colours we could find without compromising on the ever consistent sumptuous feel of cashmere wool.

The perfect cashmere capsule staple with an added fashion-forward edge, ready for even the most unpredictable of schedules.
