For the last few weeks it feels like I have been living in sundresses and sandals, which I am definitely not complaining about! So it is probably a bit of a crazy time to start thinking about what I’m going to be wearing in Winter. But the truth is in the fashion world Summer is over. It finished about a month ago when the Summer sales started, but the rest of us had just found our bikini! There are people that have already decided the key colours for 2019, the trends for Summer 2018 and AW17/18 collections will be hitting shops very soon.
Cashmere is one of those luxury fabrics that you just want to stroke or snuggle up in and hide from the world during Winter. Or possibly to hide from the price tag that it usually comes with. But there are a few ways to get your hands on some luxury for less. The trick is to buy out of season, because unlike those trend pieces on sale, cashmere isn’t going to go out of style. The high street does cashmere at a pretty reasonable price anyway, and on sale it is just a bargain!
I picked up this beautiful off-white cashmere jumper from Zara in their sale a couple of weeks ago. It is so soft that I just want to rub it against my cheek! And it’s such a classic colour and style that I am such I will be wearing this for several years. I actually had a very similar white jumper just from H&M that I wore to death last Winter. And after just one season the hem had stretched and the sleeves were bobbling so badly that I had to throw it. It wasn’t even Charity Shop worthy which is where most of my unwanted clothes go. So I know that I’m going to get the wear out of this one, and I’m hoping it will last a little longer than one season if I look after it properly!
If you are looking for a little luxury to get you through Winter or you were thinking of buying some cashmere in a couple of months, get it now! Before the sales end and brands start doubling the price of the same jumper. So buy now, and thank me later!
