What is More Luxurious Than Cashmere
Winter’s coming and most of us are trembling from the cold, yet rejoicing over the fact that we get to bust out the Fall wardrobe and start wearing scarves again! The other side of dreary weather and wet falling from the clouds in the form of icy chunks is the fact that we can wear fabulous outerwear again! Fur, wool, and windproof manmade fabrications are pouring out of storage bins at an alarming rate and getting us, the fabulous cool weather warriors prepared for the months to come.
Nothing says “I’m actually a capable individual” than standing outside, looking great and not shivering like Paris Hilton’s dog, so bundle up this season in Fall’s gift to you. The ability to wear warm layers without alerting mall security. I recommend serious fur accents. Go vintage, go full priced, or somewhere in between (just make sure the fur is ethically farmed in a Country with strictly enforced rules governing the treatment of the animals and acquisition of their fur. Like Canada!
Another amazing fall trend is oversized prints. “But Marquis… Does that mean I can wear my vintage floral psychedelic prints from the 70’s?” No you hippie! Stay away from florals (until spring arrives anyhow). Instead embrace fresh tribal prints, exploded animal prints (not to be confused with prints of exploding animals (ew!)), and lastly be sure whatever the print, wherever the piece goes, that it’s made of cashmere. Soft, warm, luxurious, cashmere.
I once got a pair of socks as a birthsay gift. I immediately de-friended the person who gave them to me on Facebook until one bone-chilling day when I went into my sock drawer and felt the incredibly soft socks. I realized they were the ones gifted to me and they were… cashmere! I put them on and wished for matching underwear! I told my friend, Facebook had a glitch and instantly re-friended the bastard! I’m giving that way.
But for reals it’s important that this winter you stay warm! I just received a cashmere sport coat for my birthday earlier this month. Guess what I’m wearing RIGHT NOW? But seriously, I would hate for one of MY readers to perish in some freak non-cashmere related hypothermia scenario. Don’t let it be you.
