The cooler fall weather and the transition into the winter months brings a lot of excitement to fashion; fabrics get thicker, layering becomes key in styling our looks, and playing with the tones and textures of our outfits not only creates fun, but comfort as well. My love affair with the ultimate staple that is cashmere will never fade; its elegance and simplicity makes it an essential piece in my winter wardrobe – one that has always been a must-have.
The Staple Cashmere Sweater
What I love most come the colder months is that I can begin to wear cashmere again, and the feeling of such a light weight and soft fabric on my skin is the simplest of luxuries in its own! In this look I’m wearing my beloved sweater from M&S in 100% cashmere, with a V-neck and slightly oversized cut which fits beautifully. A solid cashmere sweater is a definite must in my winter wardrobe: its versatility makes it perfect to style in so many ways and with so many items! From a casual daytime look (as I am wearing for heading to university), to suited for work with tailored trousers or even to a fun printed skirt for the weekend, it is such an easy style to wear!
Casual Dressing with Jeans
As well as cashmere being a wardrobe essential, I do think a good pair of jeans goes a long way! I simply love this straight cut pair styled with the sweater, it has a casual but winter-chic vibe to it which is perfect for the city! Styling cashmere with jeans is a key outfit that really works every-time, and this straight-cut one from M&S gives the look a more modern edge!
Pair with Suede Ankle Boots
When dressing more casual in terms of clothing, such as a sweater and jeans, I always love to add an element that will really accentuate the look and give it that chic touch! For the fall and winter months I usually pair my jeans with ankle boots to give me more height, which balances out the oversized look of the sweater and the straight-cut jeans. Comfort is always key, especially in the city when walking is a must, and these grey suede ankle boots from M&S are as comfortable as stylish!
Add a Fun Pompom Hat to Match!
To really tie the look in together and add a little bit of fun and flair, I love styling my winter outfits with matching hats! This one from M&S in cashmere is adorable and also super cosy, keeping my head nice and warm against the cool wind. I also think the white pompom is a really nice touch, it softens the look and keeps it casual but also fun!
I really hope you have enjoyed this post and got some useful tips on styling the staple cashmere sweater, how would you wear it?
