Basics Cardigans

Basic cashmere cardigans

A classic button-down cardigan is a staple addition to every woman’s wardrobe. We want everyone to enjoy luxury knits, which is why we created our Basics collection; affordable cashmere cardigans that don’t compromise on quality. Each piece is carefully crafted and designed to last a lifetime. Instantly refine your look with quality cashmere in a multitude of shades - from match-anything neutrals to a bright cardigan for a pop of colour. Wear alone on a warm summer day, buttoned and French-tucked into your favourite denim, or layer over a basic Tee for a laid-back look that’s perfect for colder seasons.

How to style a Basics cardigan

Thanks to its versatility, one of our Basic cashmere cardigans can be styled up or down to suit a whole host of occasions. Pair alone with a midi skirt for a summer evening look, or layer over a T-shirt with your favouite jeans for more casual appearance. 

How to wash your Basic cashmere cardigans

Despite the affordable price tag, you can still expect the same uncompromised Chinti & Parker quality from your Basic cashmere cardigan. With the right care and love, your pieces can last for years to come, making them a fantastic addition to any capsule wardrobe. 

Your new cardigan can be hand or machine washed, and washed every three to four wears, unless your piece is visibly soiled. 

If you opt for machine washing, use a knitwear or delicate cycle on a cold temperature with the lowest spin. A gentle detergent – such as baby shampoo or a specialist cashmere shampoo – is best. To dry them, lie your cashmere cardigan on a flat surface in its natural shape to air dry, and cool iron inside out if needed. 

Store your sweaters and cardigans folded – never hung – with cedarwood stars to keep moths at bay. Track pants should be folded in half and then hung in your wardrobe. Between washes, spritz with a garment refresher to clean them between washes.
