Forget the itchy and uncomfortable sweaters of your childhood, cashmere is the game-changer adults need. Suddenly turtlenecks are cozy, not constricting. In fact, my winter wardrobe would probably consist entirely of cashmere if it weren't for one thing: the triple-digit price tag.
Fortunately, if you know where to look, it's easy to find this favorite fiber on sale. This is great for anyone looking for a last-minute gift on a budget. Truly.
Here are a few timeless cashmere pieces that probably cost less than a trip to the salon.
- 1. COLLECTION Cashmere Turtleneck Shell, $49 (usually $175), Saks Off Fifth
This cashmere base layer is great for for two reasons: First, the color is ivory frost so it goes with practically any cardigan, jacket or blazer. Second, it's 100 percent cashmere. So, even if your outer layer isn't the softest material, you'll still feel spoiled since your core is directly in contact with this shell.
