Spring blooms, the sound of birdsong, and lighter evenings have us embracing the outdoors again. But with warm temperatures far from a guarantee at this time of year, a little forethought goes a long way to keeping warm and chic as we transition into spring.
One accessory stands out from the crowd when it comes to transitional dressing. We present the Season of the Scarf.
At Black, we celebrate luxurious scarves all year round, but these multifunctional marvels come into their own when the seasons are transitioning. Springtime sees us wrapping up and stripping off at a moment’s notice. The weather is always tricky to predict, but lightweight and deceptively warm cashmere can rescue you from a chill.
Our scarves have an almost magical fold-down-ability, which makes them a fantastic option to throw on or carry with you. Keep scrolling to check three oversized styles of our luxury cashmere shawls - generous proportions for warmth but easy to stow away when the sun appears.
Basket Weave Cashmere Shawls
Super-soft Mongolian cashmere yarn gives this luxury pure cashmere shawl supreme warmth. The basket weave design and the fringe finish give a snuggly texture that’s hard to resist.
Our Cornish Cream colour takes inspiration from indulgent clotted cream slathered on a warm scone, and we can’t think of a more perfect accessory for your first al fresco Afternoon Tea of the year.
Try our Dove Grey for that perfect shade of light grey. This chameleon colour pairs perfectly with heavy winter coats, black leather biker jackets and bright white shirts and knits. It’s a colour that will take you through every season.
Gossamer Cashmere Shawls
Our Gossamer Cashmere shawls are soft, light, and luxurious to the touch. Crafted in a delicate gauzy weave from pure Mongolian cashmere, they are semi-sheer and drape beautifully. Short eyelash fringing adds a feminine finish. Offering warmth in the shade but without weighing down an airy springtime outfit.
If the skies are stubbornly greyer than we would like, bring your own sunshine. Our Apricot Orange Gossamer shawl evokes warmer days with its vivid creamsicle hue. This shade pairs well with all washes of denim for relaxed weekends. Or use it to pep up your 9-5 wardrobe.
For another pop of colour, our Firebrick Red Gossamer Shawl reminds us of the warm shades of the sky just after sundown. Pair with oranges, yellows, pinks and purples to complement its sunset vibe. Or, for a stylish contrast, pair it with a teal or navy.
Cashmere Ring Shawls
Our ring shawls are the ultimate in finesse and luxury. The pinnacle of cashmere construction, it adapts to the body temperature of the wearer, making it ideal for transitional dressing. Also known as the Pashmina Ring Shawl, they get their unusual name because the cashmere is so fine that you can thread an entire shawl can through a wedding ring.
There is a reason that our Classic Black Cashmere Shawl is a best-seller. It goes with everything, making it a wardrobe staple. Pair with Bretton stripes for a model-off-duty look or contrast its sumptuous softness with sharp tailoring. You really can’t go wrong.
Our Navy and Ivory Houndstooth Cashmere Ring Shawl fits the brief for a pretty pop of pattern. Combining classic colours and a traditional print makes this a shawl that seamlessly works in your wardrobe while injecting fresh texture and interest into your basics. Sensational with navy knits and dark wash denim.
