I don’t know about you, but lately, I am completely into transforming my wardrobe into a capsule one. That means having necessary and basic items that I can wear every day without spending (so) much money. A capsule wardrobe is an amazing way to re-organize and declutter your closet. You can also let yourself invest in some good quality pieces. Such as cashmere sweater.
In the winter season, my favorite item becomes a sweater. I wear it with jeans, skirts, pants, and even leggings if I am too lazy for anything else. The most important thing – cashmere sweaters are very irresistible and versatile. You can wear them for years.
Cashmere usually comes from Mongolia or China. It is produced from the fleece of goats. The raw material is very hard to work with. In case you wondered why it is more expensive than other materials – there is the answer. However, by picking good-quality cashmere you will be sure it will last for more than one season.
Not all sweaters are made of 100% pure cashmere. You can find many different blends on the market today, and that is why their price can vary as well.
How to Style Cashmere Sweater
Camel and Black for Every Day
Cashmere sweaters are versatile. That makes them perfect for everyday wear. You can choose to wear them with black chino pants and loafers. Such a chic and simple look. Always choose a sweater that is not too close to your body. It is better if you can tuck it in or just leave it casually over your pants.
Layer it Down
Capsule wardrobe allows you to combine basic and simple items. Cashmere sweater in one size up than yours is perfect if you want to layer it with a plain white button-down. You will need jeans, suede boots, and brown leather bag to achieve a perfect workwear style for everyday wear.
Cashmere and Leather
If you want to look trendy and stylish you should take some risks. Black midi leather skirt with front gold buttons looks gorgeous when styled with classy black cashmere turtleneck. If you are following trends, you know that snakeskin print is more than IN for this season!
How to Take Care For Your Cashmere Sweaters
Cashmere sweaters as part of your capsule wardrobe require some special care. Never hang your sweaters. Fold them carefully on and offseason. Moth repellents are necessary during the summer when you store them in boxes or in your closet. You should definitely buy de-piller which you can carry while traveling and use it every time you notice your sweater starts to have pills.
If you are not sure about washing your cashmere sweaters, then take them to professionals. Otherwise, always hand-wash them with a gentle shampoo for wool and cashmere. This can save you money from dry cleaning, and trust us – it is not so hard!
