Celebrity Fashion Icons Show Why Cashmere Is So Classic
Good quality cashmere is such a classic, it’s no wonder it’s a staple in so many women’s’ wardrobes. From sweaters to scarves, investing in a well-made item is definitely worth it, as cashmere pieces will last for years if they’re looked after properly, and never go out of fashion. We’ve been on the look-out for celebrities from film stars to royalty who agree that cashmere clothing is the way to go:
Fit for a princess: The Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, is known for choosing good quality, timeless pieces, and is often seen out and about wearing cashmere. If you’re a fan of this popular royal, fashion blog Kate’s Closet will help you stay up to date on all her outfits and even source the same or similar if you aspire to emulate her look! Kate was spotted arriving at Clarence House shortly before her wedding to Prince William wearing a fetching pale pink cashmere sweater.
A comfortable favourite in the closet: We all have that favourite item of clothing that’s comfy, warm and easy to wear, and these are the pieces which are really worth investing in, as you’ll turn to them time and time again. Actress Jessica Alba clearly has a favoured piece too, as she’s been photographed several times wearing a classic grey cashmere sweater as part of various outfits. The neutral colour and simple style of this piece means it’s great to dress up or down, and layer with other items too, a truly versatile wardrobe staple.
Timeless style: The new First Lady Melania Trump is clearly going to be a woman to watch, and she made a striking impression earlier this year when she wore a brilliant blue cashmere jacket and dress for Inauguration Day. Whatever you think of Trump’s politics, Melania’s outfit was a clever move in the fashion stakes, prompting comparisons with fashion icon and former First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy, who wore a similar style in an outfit by Oleg Cassini in 1961 to her husband John F. Kennedy’s inauguration.
Feminine, flattering and fabulous: Iconic star Marilyn Monroe was a lover of cashmere knitwear, and true fans now have the opportunity to see or even to own some of the actual pieces worn by Marilyn herself. As a glamourous and beautiful woman Monroe showed us that clothing needn’t be skimpy and revealing to be feminine and flattering – the actress was often photographed in chunky knit sweaters and cosy cardigans.
