The Best of Season 8 from John Elliott

John Elliott
Since the first season of John Elliott was released in the spring of 2013, this lifelong passion project has become one of the most sought after designer brands in the industry.

Season 8 was nothing less than what we expected from this West Coast designer. Basic tops in slim and oversized fits, designed with a clean, urban color palate, are paired with distressed jeans and high top premium leather sneakers to give you a fashion-forward head-to-toe look. John Elliott has also stepped up his jacket game this season with classic padded bombers, overcoats, and reversible, full-zip jackets equipped with a hood and lined with a faux fur fabric for added warmth and flare. All are trendy pieces that showcase Elliott’s creative hand and his knack for being able to transform simple designs into functional, modern fits with unique fabrics.

How to Wash a Cashmere Sweater Without Ruining It

Look, we get it: it can be tempting to never want to wash your best cashmere sweaters. Maybe you had a traumatizing moment with stray knitwear making its way into the dryer. Or maybe you just spent a ton on fancy cashmere and don’t want to risk ruining your investment. We’ve all been there. But the fact remains: sooner or later things are going to get stinky or, even worse, stained and you’re going to need to figure out how to wash cashmere sweaters.

Before you ask, yes you can dry clean cashmere sweaters. (You can dry clean basically anything if you really want to, frankly.) In fact, that little tag inside the waist of your sweater would tell you that’s what you’re supposed to do. Dry cleaning’s got a dark side, though: they use a ton of harsh chemicals to get the stains and odors out of your gear. Over time, these chemicals will start to break down the fibers in your favorite sweater and before you know it, you’ll be way worse off than if you just gritted your teeth and learned how to clean a cashmere sweater yourself in the first place.
