A new season and new reasons to treat yourself to a staple piece that will see you through to the new year and beyond! We are talking about luxe cashmere that not only looks stylish but packs a punch in keeping you warm all winter. And, right now, when it comes to cashmere, there is no trend more coveted than layering, which opens the (wardrobe) door to beautiful pieces which are chunky, funky and oversized for cosiness. Here we highlight the hero cashmere pieces that your closet craves.
It’s Shawl Right – Grey Fringed Cashmere Shawl
Shawls are making a comeback and they are more relevant than ever. Loved for their versatility, this grey fringed cashmere shawl can be layered over a dress, jacket or over a top. Better still, this beauty serves to standout against everything your winter wardrobe can throw at it. So snuggly, you might even want to use it as a cosy blanket (yes, it is big enough).
Beanie There - Olive Green Cashmere Slouch Beanie
Temperatures often tend to dip overnight and the unprepared are left with a summer wardrobe that has to suddenly be fall relevant. The best way to tackle this is with luxurious winter must-haves that can be paired with anything our wardrobe can throw at it to bring it. One such piece is this slouchy beanie - totally chic, it’s a contemporary take on a traditional rib beanie and truly one of a kind.
Layering Love - Hand Woven Chunky Herringbone Cashmere Poncho
This season, layering is being taken to new heights with ponchos over tops and outwear for extra warmth and depth, and we just love this poncho which has been handwoven in cashmere. Wear it over a denim or leather jacket to give your autumn wardrobe extra longevity into winter – after all, colder temps need not mean puffa jackets.
Hooray for Grey - Double Size Slate Grey Cashmere and Black Satin Snood
Grey will always have a place in our hearts and really deserves to be this season’s neutral. We love it because it’s so easy combine with anything, take this snood for example - the perfect blending of slate grey cashmere and black satin, which increases it’s wearability tenfold. You can wear it looped for extra snugness, or loose for a more draped and elegant look.
