Color Me Cashmere

This week’s question at the New York Times Fashion & Style Opinion Board is:

Are you tired of dark colors for fall or winter clothing? Do you try to brighten up your cold-weather wardrobe?

Some interesting ideas include:

1. that wearing darker clothes is in imitation of nature’s hibernation, and thus an expression of internal and totally natural rhythmic sympathies with the universe [smoked your hemp hat again, didja poster?]; and

2. that bright accessories easily lighten up those darker tones — and we love our subdued colors of winter for their slimming silhouettes.

The response that really caught my eye, though, was the person who’s rediscovered cashmere, which of course is a luxuriously warm fabric with a range of colors only your imagination can stop.

When I wear this Nat Nast cashmere in pear, for example, it just doesn’t matter if the weather outside is frightful – because I look so delightful.

Have a great (and colorful) weekend!

Thanks for reading,
