Cashmere > Polyester
Let's start with the basics: everyone loves cashmere, and everyone looks wealthy in it. The Roy family move through their boardrooms and boar hunts layered with silks, cashmere, and other luxurious textiles. Even the patriarch of the family, Logan Roy, swaddles himself in cashmere cardigans, and he's a monster!
"If you go for quality it will always pay off," Succession's costume designer Michelle Matland told Town & Country. "It's not the price tag we look at — we don't go looking to spend money — but the subtle texture, the pattern, the sheen. Cashmere, I'm sorry, looks different than a poly blend. It just does." But that's not to say that your sweater should cost as much as your rent. "I also love an outlet store," Metland said, encouraging us to shop for deals. "[It's] perfectly fine to buy it for less!"
The lesson: Invest in the good stuff.
