You’ve unboxed your new oversized cashmere scarf and want to wear it immediately. We don’t blame you. It is impossible to get enough of the luxurious feel of cashmere against your skin. The nature of fine cashmere makes it a wonderful warmer in winter and a light layer in summer months. To help you get the most out of your latest wardrobe addition, we’ve collected some of our favourite ways to style an oversized cashmere scarf.
Super Luxe Ebony Black Basket Weave Cashmere Shawl is the perfect example of a scarf that can be a wardrobe workhorse. It will pair with coats, jumpers, cardigans and more. The classic deep black of this scarf lends itself to dressing up.
The Little Black Dress finds its perfect companion in an Oversized Black Shawl. Cashmere is the ideal choice for a date night accessory. An oversized scarf can be worn over a coat for a colder evening date or sophisticatedly swathed around the shoulders.
If you haven’t thought about taking a cashmere scarf to the beach before, we recommend it. Elevate windswept walks along the shore with a cosy scarf. Try folding your scarf lengthways, placing it on your neck and threading the side with loose ends through the side with a loop. Fluff the scarf for some volume, and you have an elegant but secure wont-be-blown-away scarf style.
Even on the hottest days by the sea warrant a cover-up. Breathable, featherlight cashmere is the perfect pairing for warm weather. We enjoy the delicate translucence of our gossamer cashmere collection to cover a bathing suit. The Prussian Blue Gossamer Cashmere Shawl lends itself to the colour palette of the beach.
A travel essential. Do not take a trip without an oversized cashmere shawl. We mean it. Not only will a scarf elevate your travel outfit, but it does double duty as a blanket on the plane. Taking next to no room in your hand luggage, once you arrive at your destination, you will be able to style your scarf whilst you are away too.
We enjoy the neutral grey of the Super Luxe Dove Grey Basket Weave Cashmere Shawl, which will lift darker outfits just as well as it pairs with lighter, airy ensembles. Exquisite draped in a loop over a crisp white shirt or shirt dress collar.
Cashmere is a fabric indulgent enough for the fanciest of occasions. The soft drape of a shawl paired with an evening dress radiates elegance, with the added plus of warmth on cooler evenings and in air-conditioned environments. Our Midnight Blue Gossamer Cashmere Shawl is classic in style and colour and adds a graceful flourish to your occasionwear.

And finally, what most people think of when wearing a scarf; a layer to warm you up in colder temperatures. For a different take, try placing the scarf over your shoulders, arranging the scarf lengths flat over your front, and cinching it with a belt. This technique adds warmth, texture and visual interest but keeps the lines of the outfit clean.
The warm colour palette of Super Luxe Ruby Red Basket Weave Cashmere Shawl makes us think of pumpkin spice and festive fun.
