Best Cashmere I wit & whimsy

Cashmere season has arrived and I for one am ready for it! I’ve pulled out and already started wearing all my softest, coziest cashmere and am sharing today my favorite cashmere sweaters. Let’s be honest: not all cashmere is created equal!

Today’s post is about highlighting my tried + tested cashmere with you so you know what’s worth investing in.

First up is this COS sweater that is one of the most versatile and flattering pieces I own. Their cashmere is so, so good. It’s wearability, quality and versatility make it worth the price tag in my opinion. ‘m wearing a Medium.

Other Cashmere Sweater Favorites:

Naadam Cashmere I wit & whimsy

This Naadam cashmere hoodie is pure luxury comfort. It is my first purchase from this brand that’s looking to reinvent how cashmere is made accessible to people. Truth be told I ordered some other items from them that I didn’t love and I do think their sizing is a bit all over the place based on the pieces I ordered. I’m wearing a large in the hoodie. I do think their prices are reasonable for the quality though and I love all the various styles and colors they offer. I can’t wait to be so cozy and warm in this hoodie on the plane to France and Australia next month.

Everday Style I wit & whimsy

The Everlane cashmere crew is just $100 and great quality for the price. It does pill over time with a lot of wear but I just take my favorite gadget to it and it is like new in no time. My particular color shown above is on sale for a limited time. Wearing a M. (And p.s. other Everlane styles including additional cashmere sweaters are currently marked down!)

Navy Blue Sweater + Chambray

This Cuyana wool/cashmere blend sweater. It’s such a perfect navy (but also comes in 4 other colors) and because it is a blend it is lighter-weight making it the best transitional sweater and also great for layering. It’s the sweater I always reach for on cooler summer evenings.

You all know how much I deeply love my Equipment cashmere sweater. It’s held up remarkably for over 4 years. The black served me so well I also bought it in gray (see below).

This cashmere sweatshirt is the best. I love that it is a bit thinner so it is the perfect warm layer under blazers or thicker cardigans. Definitely size up though. I’m wearing a Large.

Cashmere Tee + Jeans I wit & whimsy

This Everlane cashmere tee has been on heavy rotation ever since I first debuted it here. It is such a great layering piece and so flattering on.

White & Warren Cashmere Sweater I wit & whimsy

The White + Warren cashmere sweater I shared in a post earlier this week is such a luxury to wear. So soft and cozy and I love the color as it is unlike anything I own. White + Warren is definitely on the pricier side but if you’re going to buy investment pieces, cashmere is a great way to start. I have their cashmere travel wrap / scarf on my wish list and also this cardigan.

And while we are talking cashmere I also love this Everlane cashmere scarf. And also this COS cashmere beanie. I looked FOREVER for the perfect cashmere beanie that was slouchy but also fit my giant head. This one was worth every penny. So warm and so practical.

And I’ve never shot it but this Everlane Crewneck was one of my most worn items last Winter. It is so cozy and the fit is just perfect. At one point I showed up to a friend’s and all three of us girls had it on in different colors last winter – we all love it! I have it in a Medium which is a bit oversized and perfectly slouchy.

I also saw that Reformation is now doing cashmere and I’m excited to order some of their sweaters. They are such chic and timeless styles!

  1. I would highly recommend Bloomingdale’s cashmere. I have an Aqua (their internal label) ombré cashmere sweater that I got in high school circa 2009 and I still wear it bc it’s in great condition. Barely any pilling.

    1. I have heard great things about them before! Definitely going to order during their sale this week. Thanks for the reminder and recommendation, Elisse!

  2. So excited about this Everlane cashmere! I have been wanting to try theirs but waiting to pull the trigger, just ordered the one on sale (in the pale lavender) to see how I like it! Thanks for the tip 🙂

  3. I have a lot of cashmere sweaters, and there are some great brands out there. I agree with the commenter above who recommended Bloomingdale’s – the quality is pretty great for the price. I also love cashmere crewneck from Everlane – it’s so soft. I only recently discovered Cos, and I love their stuff so I’ll have to take a look at the cashmere.

    You should also check out Eric Bompard – pretty much THE essential Parisian cashmere. Great quality and styles, and while not inexpensive, worth it for a great classic.

    1. Going to order some Aqua cashmere- thanks for the recommendation! And I haven’t heard of Eric Bompard so this is exciting – thank you for sharing, Marcia!!
