Everyday Luxury: Cashmere Shawls

Everyday luxury is more attainable than you think. The secret to curating a luxury closet is by building your outfits around high-quality investment pieces. Cashmere is one of the most sought-after fabrics in the fashion industry and has long been seen as a status symbol.

Cashmere shawls are an attainable way of incorporating luxury into your everyday closet. This breathable and lightweight fabric can be styled as a shawl in summer or used to layer up in winter.

At Imperial Cashmere, we believe that luxury never goes out of style. Our cashmere shawls are handmade by artisan knitters in Nepal using traditional methods handed down through the generations.

A sustainably sourced cashmere shawl could be your new go-to accessory. Whether you have a capsule closet or want to elevate your style, cashmere shawls have something to offer everyone. We’re exploring the versatility of cashmere shawls and why they’re the ultimate piece of everyday luxury

Why you should invest in a cashmere scarf

The key to creating outfits that will transition from one season to the next is by choosing the right accessories. A cashmere shawl is one of the most versatile pieces that you can invest in. It’s easy to style as an oversized wrap over a little black dress or to throw over your shoulders as a scarf.

This luxury accessory is style meets functionality. It’s one accessory that will be right at home in any closet. Whatever your style aesthetic, a cashmere scarf will pull your look together as the perfect finishing touch.

Learning how to care for cashmere can keep your shawl soft to the touch and looking brand new for years to come.  We recommend spot cleaning your cashmere shawl between wears and taking it to your professional cleaner once or twice a year for maintenance.

The key to maintaining your cashmere shawls is to store them safely. Tissue paper will keep your cashmere looking fresh, while a zip lock bag adds an extra layer of protection.

The versatility of a cashmere shawl

The beauty of a cashmere shawl is that it has endless uses. It’s the travel companion that you can use as a blanket, add over a dress for a cocktail party, or snuggle up with to stay warm in winter.

If there’s one accessory that you should buy in every color, it’s a cashmere shawl. Our shawls are available in an array of neutrals, jewel tones, and intricate patterns that add a touch of personality to any outfit.

A cashmere shawl is one accessory that you should never leave home without. Keep it in your work bag or match your shawl with your favorite blazers and jackets. This everyday luxury is an all-in-one that you can style for every season.

Cashmere is a natural fiber with unique characteristics that allow it to be breathable in summer and act as an insulator to keep you warm in winter. Its versatility means that cashmere will take any outfit seamlessly from one season to the next.

Whether you’re heading to the beach or the mountains, a cashmere shawl is the perfect plus one for any event. Wearing a cashmere shawl is guaranteed to elevate any outfit – from casual loungewear to cocktail attire.

How to style a cashmere shawl

You can keep your outfit minimalistic with a neutral cashmere shawl or use your signature accessory to add a pop of color. This understated accessory is the perfect way to add a touch of Parisian chic to your closet. The right styling will take your new cashmere shawl effortlessly from day to night – whatever the occasion.

What makes a cashmere shawl unique is that it’s one of the few accessories that work for any outfit. Whether you’re heading to the gym, going to the office, or attending a black-tie event, a cashmere shawl will elevate your look.

Cashmere shawls for formal functions

Layering up for formal functions can seem difficult. Most people don’t want to hide their gown under a coat or worry about where to leave it.

A cashmere shawl solves this problem as a lightweight accessory to drape over your shoulders to stay warm without distracting from the rest of your outfit. It’s elegant, understated, and works with any neckline. You can fold your shawl neatly away or carry it in your arms. It’s the one accessory you’ll be glad of when heading home after cocktail hour.

Styling a cashmere shawl with a coat

When winter comes around, layering is your best friend. You want to keep a cashmere shawl close at hand for when the temperatures start to drop. During winter, your coat and cashmere shawl will be inseparable.

Winter is the ideal time to invest in a new cashmere shawl or choose one that compliments your everyday coat. You can match your shawl to your coat for a coordinated and minimalistic look. A cashmere shawl is an elegant way to incorporate seasonal colors without buying fast fashion pieces.

Wrap your cashmere shawl around your neck as a scarf and tuck the loose ends inside the collar of your coat for a seamless look.

Wearing a cashmere shawl with a dress

While you can wear a cashmere shawl with almost any outfit, it’s the perfect partner for a dress. A patterned cashmere shawl will add an extra dimension to any dress, whether you’re running errands at the weekend or attending a garden party.

For a sophisticated look, style your cashmere shawl as a cape. Start by wrapping it around one shoulder before taking the remaining portion and wrapping it twice around your other shoulder. Tuck the remaining fabric into the neckline for an elegant silhouette.

You can style a cashmere shawl with any dress – from a casual wrap dress to a sleeveless summer silhouette or a classic LBD. It’s one accessory that’s guaranteed to give you the ultimate cost per wear.
