In deciding to move to Los Angeles early this year, I felt pretty confident that I wouldn't miss "seasons" — those seasons being fall and winter. Having lived only in New York and Seattle, I've gotten my fair share of cold, gloomy weather; but last week, when the East Coast was (finally) starting to get some of those crisp fall days and it was literally 100 degrees in LA, I found myself missing one thing: sweater weather.
Sweaters have always been the thing I can't not buy, even when I know I don't need more and I've really had to rein myself in knowing that my sweater-appropriate days will be fewer. It does still get chilly in LA, though, and a fancy person once told me that LA weather is ideal for cashmere sweaters. I'm not entirely sure what that means — perhaps because it's a little lighter and more breathable than other knits — but I'm on board.
Below, find 17 cashmere sweaters for whatever your current climate, or budget.
