The winter blues haven’t crept up on us yet but there are ways that we can prepare to beat them. Besides the little creature comforts that helps keep our spirits up, there are things we can do for our wardrobes as well. Since the cold weather requires that we wear heavier knits, we’ve picked out a few favourites from The Elder Statesman. The Los Angeles based brand is known for their artisanal approach to crafting their luxurious cashmere pieces. All of this is wrapped within a distinct West Coast vibe.

One of our favourite pieces from our selects is their Role Rasta Striped cashmere sweater. The piece showcases a vibrant red, green, yellow, and black vertical “Rasta” stripes all throughout. What makes it even more special is that its put together using vintage looms, which essentially makes every sweater created unique. We would wear this piece on a casual day or evening with Black Alexander McQueen Trousers and chunky Dr. Martens 8053 Lace-Up Shoe.

If you’re looking for a sweater that is slightly more subtle, there is a paint splattered piece. There is also a tie-dye cashmere sweater that is more on the psychedelic side.
