Cashmere Sweaters, Scarves, and Hats for the Coziest of Travel Days

Fleecy jackets and pile-lined leggings will certainly keep you warm for winter travel, but for the ultra-stylish jetsetter, there’s no match for a cashmere capsule wardrobe. Sweaters of every shape and length; wraps, scarves, and hats; and extras like slippers and socks can make even the most exhausting trips feel more luxurious. We’ve rounded up the softest knits across every category to keep you cozy on all your cold-weather journeys.

Best Cashmere Sweater Overall

Everlane The Cashmere Crew.

Everlane The Cashmere Crew

You can’t do better than an Everlane cashmere crewneck, which checks boxes for high quality, great cut, reasonable price point, and multiple color options. Plus, the brand generally does a stellar job of maintaining complete size runs during the season—meaning your pick is less likely to go out of stock. The slightly relaxed fit of this sweater allows for pairing with a skirt or jeans, and is roomy enough to comfortably wear a button-down underneath.

Best Long Cashmere Cardigan

Classic Cashmere Open Cardigan with Pocket.

L.L.Bean Classic Cashmere Open Cardigan with Pocket

This incredibly versatile sweater—with pockets!—is an excellent choice for travel days. Wear it from the office straight to the airport, then on the plane for an extra layer underneath your cashmere blanket or wrap. It’s made from Mongolian cashmere by L.L.Bean, the legendary Maine brand known for top-notch customer service and for standing by their products. Pro tip: Long open cashmere cardigans are genius for doubling as a robe—especially useful if you’re a carry-on-only traveler, or if bulky terry hotel bathrobes aren’t your jam.

Crewneck Cashmere Sweater J.CREW.

J.Crew Crewneck Cashmere Sweater

J.Crew is another go-to for quality cashmere at a reasonable price. Like Everlane, J.Crew’s cashmere also comes in poppy colors in addition to tried-and-true neutrals. This cashmere sweater‘s wide-rib collar and slit sides elevate it beyond a just-jeans staple. It’s a smart pick if you’re traveling for work or an event. Bring along a statement necklace and cigarette pants and you’re good to go for everything from a bridal shower brunch to dinner with colleagues.

Best Cashmere Wrap/Scarf

C by Bloomingdale's Cashmere Travel Wrap.

C by Bloomingdale’s Cashmere Travel Wrap 

Hands down, this is one of the best travel pieces out there. Bloomies’ soft, brilliant wrap comes in more than a dozen shades. The cut isn’t too skimpy, bulky, or voluminous, so you won’t constantly pull it over exposed shoulders, get twisted in it, or fight to keep it off the floor. For easy access, rather than stashing it inside your suitcase, loop it through the handle of your roller bag or the straps of your purse. If you get stuck in a frigid airplane cabin or train car, unfurl it to use as an extra blanket.

The Essential $75 Cashmere V-Neck Sweater Plum.

Naadam The Essential $75 Cashmere V-Neck Sweater 

A cashmere sweater for $75? This isn’t a misprint—it’s for reals. Naadam produces unisex cashmere crewnecks and V-necks for an almost unheard-of price. But, unlike other low-price cashmere sweaters on the market, it’s unlikely you’ll punch a hole through one of their knits while slipping it over your head. Naadam customers give the Mongolian cashmere an average five-star rating for quality and softness.
