What’s not to love about cashmere?
The quality is challenging sometimes, and the prices can be a sliding scale from the sublime to the ridiculous but most times it is possible to find the right piece at a fair price.
Last week’s EDIT had many questions about cashmere – how to wear it and where to find it.
I have put together a collection of pants and sweaters – all shapes and styles – that would work in most wardrobes. I’ve been mixing my cashmere with not only the casual but also with the formal. It’s working for me and as the weather chills down it is an even better option.
The shorter and wider crop has my attention.
In a million years I would have denied them and their versatility. Here I am in a cream pair, worn with an old favourite silk blouse and my new but “old” shoes. They have wider and shorter legs than I’ve worn before, but I like them; not to forget the comfort factor either.
We all know there are “tracksuits” and “tracksuits” and like most fashion wearables, there are ways to manage how we put our looks together. I am a big believer in a mix and match approach and wear my clothing accordingly. I never say never and if I like it and have the confidence for the combination, then I’m all in. Experimenting is key and if your first reaction is a strong one then go whichever way it leads.
Cashmere sweaters are an easy one – wear them with anything.
Why not wear a “hoodie” under a tailored blazer? Equally, throw it over a tee and a shorter style pair of trousers. The pants traditionally have been a lounge about option – cashmere is an investment in most cases so why not wear them for good?
All my favourites cashmere – pants and sweaters – are on the same page. As always, I’m into the neutrals; loving the creams, greys and blacks together – even a little olive green. I did find a fabulous “mocha” shade if that’s for you and mixed with cream or black it is a winner.
Cashmere is seriously crush-worthy. xv
