There are rare few fabrics which evoke a comparable cosy sentiment to that of cashmere. When I think of my most romantic ideals of autumn and winter, the fabric is wrapped up in and around them.
When my friends and I were younger we’d dream up our ‘perfect boyfriends’ and they’d invariably wear a cashmere crew neck, and be creative, bookish and hot in equal measures! It’s so funny to think back on that now!
Just as cashmere has formed some of my most beloved past and present memories (fantasy boyfriends aside!), I know it’ll continue to be a fabric entwined in future memories too.
It figures then that when The White Company asked me to give their latest cashmere collection a whirl I leapt at the opportunity to share it with you. I know that you are going to love getting to know the collections – they are simply beautiful.
Read on for a look at The White Company’s latest cashmere drop; from knitwear to accessories to bedding, this is a collection you’re going to want to welcome into your wardrobe and home. . .
And as an aside – I absolutely loved shooting these photos! Frances and I had an amazing time making the most of the early autumn hues, I am so excited for the colours to continue to change – it’s my favourite time of the year!

The Cashmere Jumper
Ah that romantic cashmere jumper. It’s still my very favourite piece to pull on for a cold autumnal walk, or over my PJs in the morning whilst I make a cup of coffee.
I absolutely adore this roll neck incarnation, it’s perfectly fitted so that it’s slim through the body but not too tight. The rollneck itself is satisfyingly chunky so that you can easily tuck your hair in against a crisp wind – a favourite styling trick. I mean it looks so chic!
I like to wear my roll neck for long walks, there is nothing as shielding from an autumnal chill.
Equally this swing shape jumper (seen below) is an easy desk-to-any-occasion piece. It elicited genuine “coos” when I bumped into Oli’s Mum after shooting these photos!
One hug wearing one of these and you’re guaranteed to have converted another The White Company cashmere lover!

A bobble hat is one of my favourite accessories ever. Although this one isn’t cashmere it’s still SUPER cosy and I know I’ll be wearing it on repeat for the remainder of the year.
Whether you are attending the fireworks on November 5th, or navigating the colder temperatures in the city, a bobble hat will be one of your most-loved items in your wardrobe.
As for a scarf in that gorgeous cashmere – is there a better gift to give or to receive?
I wrap up in my scarf when I’m writing at my desk (I always get so cold!) and without fail when I head outdoors in the autumn.

Cotton Cashmere Bedding
Have you ever heard of something more luxurious?! Some of my very favourite moments ever, are those long luxuriously lazy mornings with not much to do. When you can curl up in your PJs, cashmere socks, and read the papers for hours on end.
This exact scenario is what inspired Croissant Reading – my weekend newsletter of links to peruse at your leisure.
The cotton cashmere bedding from The White Company goes one step further in enveloping you in the luxury of this gorgeous fabric. It is featherlight, soft as anything and ridiculously enticing! Try getting out of bed when you’re sleeping under these sheets!
Socks in this cosy fabric need no introduction – I wear a pair every single night throughout winter! Buy them – your life will change forever.
With the autumn season upon us, it’s time to invest in those little luxuries which make every day a bit cosier and more memory-making. Adding a touch of cashmere to your wardrobe or home can go a huge way in helping you to feel cosy and totally charmed by the cooler months.
Peruse The White Company’s latest collections and fall as in love as I have.
