I'm Cashmere Obsessed—This Is Where You Can Find the Best High-Street Pieces

There are so many reasons why I love shopping on the high street, but finding high-quality cashmere at affordable prices might be the biggest one. Once only available from the highest echelons of fashion brands, over the past few years our high-street stores have started gifting us with well-made and timeless cashmere staples at a fraction of the designer prices. Of course, as a luxury fabric, cashmere items across the high street will come in at a higher cost than their wool or cotton counterparts, but for its supremely soft touch, insulating qualities and natural longevity, I always recommend integrating one or two cashmere items into your wardrobe if you can.
