Affordable cashmere is pretty much the holy grail of shopping. Once upon a time, the category would have been considered an oxymoron—impossible!—but the retail world has pushed forward into previously uncharted territory, and our wardrobes are thankful. It is now entirely feasible to find great, quality cashmere knits across the high street, and, unsurprisingly, once you’ve located the best of the best, you’ll discover that it doesn’t hang around for long.
Brittany Bathgate wears a cashmere jumper from Arket.
For example, Arket's bold-hued crew neck has been reissued season after season since its conception. M&S is also well-respected for its cashmere range (fashion types always buy from the men’s department and wear them big), and Uniqlo has too established itself as the high-tech purveyor of the soft stuff at one of the wallet-friendliest prices around.
