If not yet iconic, Khaite’s cardigan has certainly proven its status as a timeless classic, which is why we’re only just spotlighting this knit now—because it’s expensive sitting at around £1400. We needed proof that the investment was going to be worth it. As well as standing the test of time and being certain the knit isn’t just a flash-in-the-pan cult piece, there’s also the quality to consider. It is made from the finest Mongolian cashmere, specifically chosen for its softness, according to Net-a-Porter. And we’ve also heard from first-hand reviews that it lasts well with care.
A serious investment it might be, but this is undoubtedly a piece you’ll cherish in your wardrobe for a very, very long time. Although stock is hard to track down, I’ve scoured the internet to find some for you. Keep scrolling and you’ll find links to shop Khaite’s Scarlet cardigan in a variety of beautiful neutral colours, as well as the brand’s newer versions (including the round-necked Caro and longer-line Lucy). Still not within budget? I’ve added some very similar, more affordable options below, too.
