PRETTY IN WARM & COMFORTABLE CASHMERE

Cashmere is the perfect material to wear during the colder winter months. It is warm but doesn’t make you look bulky. And I love how comfortable it feels on my skin. Some more advantages of cashmere: it is a natural fabric, it makes you feel warm without sweating (cashmere wool comes with air pockets that are able to provide outstanding insulation) and cashmere doesn’t shrink and wrinkle. The pieces featured here are all made of cashmere and available from Everlane. That means that they are affordable! And good to know: Everlane only works with ethical factories and they offer transparent prices.

GREAT BASIC FASHION ITEMS BY EVERLANE

During summer time I have no problems pulling an outfit together, I usually wear a tunic or kaftan dress and I am ready to go. But during the winter months I find it not so easy choosing an outfit that is comfortable, stylish and warm. Fortunately there is Everlane, a shop that offer great basics for affordable prices. Their style is a cross between Scandinavian simplicity and French chic, resulting in basic elegant and casual fashion. Everlane only works with ethical factories and they offer transparent prices. Everlane: “We believes our customers have a right to know how much their clothes cost to make. We reveal the true costs behind all of our products—from materials to labor to transportation—then offer them to you, minus the traditional retail markup.” Last year I bought the Wool cable cashmere sweater featured in the first image and it is still a favorite. The sweater in grey is now on sale for only 91 USD!
