The words "affordable" and "cashmere" aren't often found together. In fact, I tend to be dubious when they are—but not when Marks & Spencer is part of that equation. I've been shopping in the high-street institution for as long as I can remember (one of my earliest memories is looking at red-velvet dresses for Christmas in the children's department at the age of four), so when it came to investing in my first piece of cashmere, I knew exactly where to turn.
Buying cashmere is a rite of passage for grown-ups, but you needn't completely break the bank to add some luxury to your wardrobe. I've been fortunate to have cashmere from high-end designers as well as Marks & Spencer, and I can confirm that the high-street retailer's iterations have held up just as well (if not better) than those with h price tags.
Too good to keep to myself, I've decided to share with you my edit of the very best Marks & Spencer cashmere jumpers—from cable knits and step hems to classic crews and roll-necks in every shade from camel to raspberry. Simply tuck them into everything (satin skirts, high-waist jeans, checked trousers, etc.) for the perfect autumn ensemble.
