One of the delights of cold weather is bundling up in a lofty cashmere sweater, aka pure wearable luxury, when the temperature drops.
In addition to the usual array of women’s cashmere hoodies, oversized cashmere sweaters and cashmere cardigans, we also carry petite cashmere sweaters designed specifically for smaller frames.
Here’s a little more info about Macy’s selection of cashmere petite sweaters to help you shop with confidence.
What Is Cashmere?
Cashmere is a natural fiber that comes from the under-fleece of a specific type of goat (they’re called cashmere goats, in fact). This fleece is spun into yarn that can be used for textiles. It’s warm and lightweight compared to sheep’s wool and extremely soft. It’s known for its silky-smooth hand, too.
Cashmere At Macy’s
While women's cashmere sweaters can be costly, Macy’s offers a variety of price points to fit any budget. We also carry styles ranging from traditional twinsets to trend-forward designs that will suit nearly any taste. Many of Macy’s cashmere sweaters come in plus and petite sizes, so you’ll always find the fit that works best for your body.
Petite silhouettes tend to be easily overwhelmed by bulky knitwear, so cashmere sweaters designed specifically for smaller frames present a smart solution to this wardrobe dilemma.
How To Wear It
Style a petite cashmere sweater with petite jeans and top it with any of the petite coats we carry for a cozy ensemble that stands up to even the coldest weather.
Another idea we love: pairing a cashmere tank with a cashmere cardigan, women's tailored trousers and sleek pumps for an office-appropriate ensemble. If you dress in a more traditionally feminine style, try teaming your cashmere turtleneck sweater with a petite pencil skirt for a polished look with a touch of classic charm. Throw on a petite coat to complete the look.
For casual and off-duty wear, a cashmere sweater, women's joggers and a pair of lug-sole boots create a winning match-up with plenty of contrast and attitude.
Cashmere loungewear like hoodies and drawstring pants can be a real treat on chilly days when you’re relaxing at home, too.
