One Style Staple Worth the Splurge: A Cashmere Beanie

Cashmere’s an investment, but beanies offer the best value for your money.


Cashmere knits are notoriously expensive. The Mongolian fiber has become synonymous with luxury garments and accessories only available to a small percent of the population. If you’re in the market for a cashmere knit but prices seem prohibitive, pass on the sweaters and scarves and opt for a beanie instead.

True, it’s one of the smaller cashmere items you can purchase, but it offers great value. You’ll wear a knit hat more frequently than you’ll wear a sweater, and there are a number of well-made options available for less than two Benjamins. Though not exactly a steal, it’s certainly a smart buy if you’ve got your mind set on cashmere this winter.
