Diamonds, Pearls and Cashmere - Oh My!

Winter has officially arrived.    To ward off the chilly cold it is time to step out in decadent cashmere wool apparel. Cashmere sweaters and dresses richly crafted, comfortably soft and cozy warm are "must have" staples in every fashion mavens closet.  Throughout history, cashmere is finer than merino wool and highly regarded as the warmest and most fashionable.  Empress Josephine caused a fashion rage in France in the early 19th century when Napolean bestowed a pashmina shawl as a gift.  In the 1920's, Coco Chanel and Couturier Jean Patou  revitalized the elegance of cashmere in fashion.  And, Lana Turner, actress, in 1937, wore a tight fitting sweater in the movie, They Won't Forget, causing a sweater craze that continues on today in the 21st century.  Celebrities past and present enjoy the beauty, elegance and warmth of cashmere: Audrey Hepburn, Grace Kelly, Nicole Kidman, Angelina Jolie, Renee Zellweger....and the list goes on.


This sunny yellow v-neck cashmere sweater is top of mind during the days of grey and right now on sale at Neiman Marcus online.  Regularly $225 - now $100! Don't wait - shop today and take delight in colors of the sun while wrapped in this gloriously warm and royal fabric.  Combine with black pencil skirt or dark denim, boots and perhaps a scarf.  Simple, elegant and radiating Forever Chic Style.
