Every Way We're Styling COS's Chic Cashmere Jumper This Winter

Every autumn, I begin my hunt for the perfect cashmere knit. I don't rush the search though, because, as with all of life's greatest luxuries, finding the right cashmere knit is an act worth taking your time over. After all, something as special as a piece crafted from cashmere is the antithesis of fast fashion—choose it wisely and look after it well and it'll last you a lifetime. Shed and harvested only in early spring by the cashmere goat, cashmere's steeper price tag is due to its rarity and supreme softness, as well as its insulating qualities.

Turns out, I didn't have to look too far in my search for luxurious cashmere items this year, as right under my nose lay the cashmere jumper of my dreams, at none other than my favourite high-street brand, COS. At £150—which falls on the affordable side of cashmere—and a colour selection comprising deep black, navy blue, chocolate brown and postbox red along with others, I couldn't keep this discovery to myself.

Style Notes: With a crisp white tee and low-rise baggy jeans, the soft cashmere jumper pulls together a casual look that can be dressed up with chic jewels and kitten-heel boots.

Style Notes: Double down on the frills and style a Peter-Pan collar peeping out of the red knit along with a larger-than-life scrunchie. Inject a cool edge with a pair of grungy biker boots and one of this season's favourite bag shapes, the croissant.

Style Notes: This chocolate-toned knit styles so well with a peachy silk skirt. The contrast in textures adds a luxurious feel to the outfit, which is further refined by the clever use of accessories.

Style Notes: As the weather cools down, the cashmere jumper truly comes into its own. On a brisk weekend morning, snuggle into your favourite knit and throw on jeans, a classic trench and a warm scarf for an easy, weekend-ready outfit.
