Every year as the temperatures cool, there's a sense of impending coziness in the air. And what's more cozy than cashmere? Cashmere is soft, light and perfect for wearing on its own or as a layer.
Whether you're bundling up for up or looking to do a fall wardrobe refresh, cashmere sweaters are a classic piece to include in any capsule wardrobe. I personally love Everlane's cashmere sweaters, and have owned several of their pieces over the years.
I first purchased a Cashmere Crew Sweater from Everlane two years ago and it quickly became a cold-weather staple. While the sweater is definitely not cheap, the price doesn't seem nearly as intimidating when you know you'll have the piece for many years to come.
One thing to note when shopping is the brand now has two cashmere-inspired collections. One is pure cashmere wool, the other is called ReCashmere, which is recycled cashmere. These pieces are 60 per cent recycled cashmere and 40 per cent extra-fine merino wool (sourced from ethical ranchers). The ReCashmere collection is more sustainable than traditional cashmere without compromising on quality — it's just as soft.
Below, check out 5 Everlane cashmere sweaters that I either own myself or am dreaming of purchasing in the coming season.
The details: Warm, soft and lightweight, this sweater is made from Grade-A cashmere meaning it doesn't pill as easily, is more durable and gets softer with each wear.
My thoughts: My favourite part of this sweater (beyond how incredibly soft it is) is the relaxed fit. A classic crew sweater, this cozy piece was my first Everlane cashmere purchase and has lasted years. The best part? What they say is true: it gets better with each wear. Everlane now carries a Boxy ReCashmere Crew that I'm also considering adding to my collection.
The details: With drapey sleeves and an oversized fit, a more season-appropriate sweater doesn't exist. Perfect for winter temperatures, this turtleneck sweater has a luxe waffle-knit texture in the coziest material.
Promising review: "This is the second colour of this sweater I have bought. And that is not my usual practice. It is soft, comfy, but still flattering, and best of all: ReCashmere. Highly recommend."
The details: A deep V neckline with a relaxed point collar, this soft polo is all about attention to detail. The ribbed texture on the sleeves creates an effortlessly polished look with an incredibly soft feel.
My thoughts: After falling in love with the classic cashmere crew neck and stocking up on staple colours, I soon set my sights on this ReCashmere Polo. I wasn't sure if it would quite live up to the comfort and softness of my cashmere sweaters — but it did! The polo design feels a bit more special than the classic crew neck but it's just as cozy as the pure cashmere pieces.
The details: This vest features a classic ribbed V-neck and mini sleeve. Inspired by the vintage school-boy look, this vest has a shrunken silhouette so it can be worn alone or layered.
How to wear: One of fall's biggest trends is predicted to be the vest. Whether you're wearing it atop a long sleeve button up in winter or pairing it with a lightweight tee in warmer months, this vest is an easy piece to wear year round.
The details: This cardigan features a deep V-neck, accented by a three-button front. The relaxed fit makes this cardigan the perfect piece to pair with your favourite high-waisted jeans.
My thoughts: It's that time of year where we're looking to add to our cardigan collection and what's more luxurious than a cashmere cardigan? It just sounds like a fall outfit staple. This ReCashmere Cardigan features a flattering neckline that looks great when worn on its own or layered with a light tee. So soft and perfect for the season, you won't regret this key piece.
