Styling A Cashmere Scarf For Winter : Over 40 Style

Hey lovelies,

Hasn't the winter suddenly arrived? Temperatures have dropped and it's time to snuggle up in winter coats and the cosiest scarves, here's how I'm styling a beautiful cashmere scarf for a chic and timeless winter outfit.

A cosy scarf is the ultimate winter accessory, adding a layer of warmth and oodles of style. Winter coats are an investment, so a variety of scarves is a great and affordable way to change up an outfit and provide an extra level of interest.

I wanted to create a chic yet casual look with this outfit, so I teamed a longline wool coat with silky joggers, a fitted thermal long sleeve top and added a designer inspired cashmere scarf. Cashmere is such a luxuriously soft fabric and amazingly warm. The fleece of cashmere goats has been collected and used to make clothing for hundreds of years, and produces a soft, strong and incredibly insulating wool, perfect for winter. Look for 100% cashmere or a blend where the percentage is listed. A cashmere blend should be at least 50% to get that soft luxurious feel.

Some cashmere items are listed as dry clean only, so look for ones which are washable at home. I use the gentle wool cycle on my washing machine with a wool detergent. Turn jumpers inside out to prevent bobbling and use a large laundry bag for delicates to stop snags. Roll wet items in a towel to blot out water, and definitely do not wring. Shape and dry flat away from direct sunlight. And the most important thing when it comes to caring for your beloved cashmere items, over summer store in an airtight box or ziplock bag to keep away those pesky moths!

A cashmere scarf is the perfect way to add this luxury fabric to your wardrobe. And at this time of year, a great gift to consider for loved ones too!
