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. 

On Francesca Saffari: COS Chunky Pure Cashmere Crew-Neck Jumper (£200)

Whilst great high-street cashmere used to be a rarity, it’s now available in abundance. Enduring favourites COS and H&M continue to expand their cashmere offerings, catering to trending colours and a variety of cuts, whilst Me+Em features cashmere throughout its collection, producing vests, trousers, hats and jumpers in the plush fabric. To help you navigate the wealth of available styles, read on to discover the high-street brands our editors turn to year in, year out for designer-quality, deeply comfortable cashmere items that are a true pleasure to wear.

1. COS

This luxurious jumper is the perfect way to dip your toe into the espresso brown trend.

This deep rust colour styles well with both gold and silver jewellery.

2. H&M 

Perfectly slouchy, you'll be hard-pressed to find me wearing anything else this winter.

Throw over a turtleneck for a neater finish.

The line between loungewear and actual clothes are blurred and that's okay.


A black turtleneck is the wardrobe staple you'll never regret investing in…

… and an oversized cream jumper is another natural addition to any winter capsule.

In my opinion, light oatmeal shades go with everything.

4. ME + EM

This structured jumper will help you feel more put-together on a cold winter day.

Knitted balaclavas are set to be a major trend this winter.

There's nothing I'd rather wear on a slow, rainy day than a slouchy cashmere hoody.


Add a flush of colour to your winter wardrobe.

Throw this over a white tee or wear partly unbuttoned for an effortless feel.


Layer on a knitted vest for a cosy take on office styling.


In a relaxed, sporty cut, you'll be reaching for this knit multiple times per week.

This scarf often sells out in all the colourways.

Mushroom is another shade of brown I can't get enough of.
