4 essential cashmere pieces for winter

Oh, the weather outside is frightful, but your wardrobe should be so delightful.

Cashmere is essential for the winter season so we're looking to those key pieces that you need to tackle the frosty weather.

A roll neck is an essential right from autumn to the end of spring and it's borderline criminal not to have one in cashmere when inclemency sets in. This pale grey one from Tomas Maier is mid-weight so can be worn alone or layered with other knits - pair it with heavy military boots and a tonal overcoat.

As much as a scarf is essential in winter, upgrade your current version with some buttery soft cashmere - try and get one that is big enough to wrap around you and it will become your best friend when travelling. A neutral shade will ensure it goes with absolutely everything in your wardrobe.

Nothing feels better in winter than a good pair of socks paired with your favourite military boots. These Brunello Cucunelli ones are over the knee so you can pull them up under your jeans for extra warmth or use the as a statement to layer with your boots.

Last but by certainly no means least, one must invest in a pair of great gloves for the winter. Choose some that are perfect and you won't be buying them again for at least another 5 years. These ones from Tom Ford are lined in super warm cashmere and the neutral colour means you pretty much never have to take them off.
