Waking up every morning and hearing the rain pouring down is really start to get us down! Combine that with the fact that it’s January, and we just want to hibernate – preferably on the sofa in something snuggly with the leftover Christmas chocolates close to hand.
Sadly, we can’t spend our days holed up at home, so time to relax is all the more special. Which is why we feel like treating ourselves to some luxurious loungewear, and what could be better than cashmere? Yes, it’s expensive, but it’s as beautifully soft and comfy to wear as anything you could wish for, and if you can’t afford to splash out on 100% cashmere, there are plenty of cashmere/wool blends to choose from.
With cashmere garments, 100% or blended, make sure you follow the washing instructions carefully. These pieces are not cheap, so you’ll want to look after them. Here are some of the styles we’re considering…
Cashmere Repose Hoody Dress, Figleaves
This has everything we want from a piece of loungewear – a relaxed but stylish cut, super soft fabric, flattering long length and a lovely big hood. It’s the perfect thing to change into when you get home from work or to wear for a Sunday brunch with friends.
