My mom has turned me on to so many things that have ended up becoming part of my daily routine, from her love of cooking to her consistent yoga practice. There’s a lot we share, but our taste in clothes has rarely been one of those things. I love my mom to the core, but our style sensibilities tend to be night and day, with my sleek and minimal choices clashing with her vibrant and bohemian inclinations. Recently, though, we’ve found a rare common ground with one timeless wardrobe staple: cashmere sweaters.
My mom’s closet features an impressive collection of cashmere knits, which she reaches for all year round. To be honest, I can’t remember the last time I saw her without one, whether she was layering with it or draping one over her shoulders. So when the Italian cashmere label Falconeri invited me to test-drive its signature cashmere pullovers during a recent Montauk getaway, I immediately knew who to call.
Luxe basics were a big theme on the spring/summer 2022 runways, so I was excited to try out the elevated staple that’s both fashion person and mom approved. Now that I did, I’m never turning back. Mom, if you’re reading this, you were right. Ahead, see how I’m styling my new knits and shop more of my cashmere favorites.
