Former investment banker Kathleen Baxley spent 15 years in New York, freezing cold under her business attire. “I wore elegant clothes, and I wanted an inner layer of warmth and comfort that was consistent with the rest of my wardrobe,” says the Queen Anne–based Baxley. After moving to chilly, damp Seattle, Baxley “embraced the entrepreneurial spirit” and developed Mere Basics, a line of seven cashmere underpinnings—including two camisoles, three tops, tap pants and leggings—in versatile rose pink, ivory, truffle and black, ideal for layering under outfits for extra coziness, without extra bulk.
