Wearing Cashmere in Summer: How to Style
The beauty of cashmere is its versatility all year round. A common misconception is that knitwear is only wearable in the colder months and cashmere in summer isn’t suitable, but you're missing out on some luxurious style and comfort if you miss out on wearing cashmere during the summer months! One of the brilliant benefits of cashmere is its ability to keep you cool during the summer months, without overheating or making you feel itchy.

How to Style Cashmere in Summer:
1. A cashmere cardigan is the perfect layer
Cardigans are a must-have garment throughout the seasons, and they have become a wardrobe staple not only loved or worn for warmth, but style too. We love wearing a cashmere cardigan in summer, worn over a basic tee to add some extra style and interest to a simple outfit, or styled over a summer dress for a boho-inspired look. Introduce a cashmere cardigan to your summer wardrobe for a great layering piece that you can rely on all year round!
2. Wear your cashmere scarf as a summer wrap
Don’t pack your cashmere scarf away this summer - a blanket scarf doubles up as a chic and beautiful shawl to throw over your shoulders for a light summer layer. This is a wonderful outfit addition for garden parties, weddings or even a day at the races!
3. Oversized sweaters and floaty skirts
An oversized cashmere sweater is a fantastic addition to your summer wardrobe, easily worn with your favourite summer skirts and over your summer dresses for effortless and comfortable style. For the ultimate summer outfit, pair your light and oversized cashmere knit with a floaty skirt or dress for some fun movement and comfortable style!
4. Cashmere t-shirts for everyday luxury
A cashmere t-shirt is the perfect hybrid between a cool summer tee and long-sleeved jumper, helping you to create a luxurious relaxed look that will help to keep you cool. We love wearing a cashmere t-shirt styled over a floaty midi skirt or dressed down with casual shorts. It's incredibly versatile but offers a feeling of luxury to an everyday outfit!
5. Shorts and a cashmere sweater
Another great way of wearing cashmere in summer is to balance your favourite pair of shorts with a long-sleeved cashmere sweater. Enjoy the summer sun on your legs whilst keeping comfortable on the top - legs are naturally cooler than your upper body, which means you’re less likely to feel the chill on your legs than your arms. A light cashmere sweater is particularly useful to throw on when spending time outside on an evening or by the breezy seaside!
Cashmere certainly does have a place in your summer wardrobe, and is an investment you can enjoy wearing throughout the seasons. Hopefully this has given you some inspiration as to the different ways you can enjoy and style cashmere in the summer.
