Take a close look at this cashmere sweater – it’ll become the most versatile piece in your wardrobe this winter.

Sumptuously soft and unashamedly luxe, this cropped knit from La Redoute is the perfect length to tuck into high waists, wear loose with jeans or hang nonchalantly over a cute day dress.

We love its perfect-for-layering scooped neck and three quarter length sleeves that promise to be snuggly without becoming suffocating – an extra bonus when shopping, we think you’ll agree.

Sure, this grey sweat’s not all-singing, but don’t assume it’s boring, either. It’ll be the perfect partner to pops of paintbox colour and all those neutrals you stocked up on last season – and because it’s understated, it’ll welcome statement jewels and striking collars to boot.

Frankly, we can’t think of a better friend for our leather skirts. Sometimes, staples are exciting.

Cropped cashmere sweater, £55, available at La Redoute.
