5 Spring Summer Cashmere Buys
Creating a spring summer cashmere capsule with five luxury investments
When you’re on holiday, you might see elegant women stalking around the beach with a luxurious-looking sweater or cardigan draped over their swimwear. Chances are, they’re wearing cashmere.
Even so, there’s a common misconception that we can only bring out cashmere jumpers and cardigans in winter.
Lightweight and known for its extreme softness, the fibre’s natural breathable quality makes it ideal for warmer weather as well as cold – particularly as temperatures in Britain can remain quite unstable up until July and August (if not all year round!)
Explore our spring summer cashmere edit below, as picked by our experienced cashmere buyers. These pieces are sure to become essential players in your wardrobe this year.
It makes complete sense that we wear florals in spring and find ourselves reaching for complementary pastel shades to pair with them. We see nature burst back into colourful life and we want to brighten up too!
This crew neck design comes in a subtle shade of mauve and easily brings an outfit together – the ultimate in practical style.
When you’re working pastels correctly, your ensemble will look good enough to eat.
There’s nothing like that first glimpse of sunshine to inspire us to start investing in dresses for spring summer. This fit-and-flare midi is light and comfortable with mid-length sleeves so it’s the perfect choice for transitioning weather.
If you’re out and about during the evening and it does get a little too breezy, forget oversized, slouchy cardigans – a fitted cashmere design is a great alternative to traditional wool for maintaining your summery look.
Cashmere is well-loved for a number of reasons, not least for the fibre’s ability to retain colour and vibrancy, which also makes this fabric a great-quality option for melange styles.
Give your spring wardrobe a nautical edge with this lustrous, striped crew-neck jumper and team with classic-cut navy trousers for a smart casual ensemble.
Care for yours correctly and you’ll see the blues stay blue and the whites stay white for years to come.
A fresh, springy shade of lilac with a feminine, V-shaped neckline, this cable-knit cashmere jumper pairs beautifully with all shades of purple to create a sleek, tonal outfit.
If you want to try it for yourself…
Don’t knock it till you’ve tried it – take your brightest cashmere cardigan to the beach and offset an understated swimsuit with a lively, multicoloured design.
As we said previously, cashmere yarn is incredibly soft, but our favourite fabric also travels well with minimal creasing, so you’ll be able to wear this piece day after day on your holiday.
