“Can you wear cashmere in summer?” Is a question that we hear all the time. The properties of cashmere make it a suitable fabric to wear all year round. As we are all embracing fabulous Ireland this Summer on our staycations, cashmere is the perfect addition to your summer wardrobe to take any outfit from day to night.
The Properties of Cashmere
One of the most amazing things about cashmere is the thermoregulatory properties of cashmere fibres can keep us warm in the winter while also keeping us cool in the summer. As cashmere is a natural fabric, it allows our skin to breath and it is able to maintain a consistent body temperature. This makes cashmere fabric suitable for even the hottest of summer months.
Castanea’s spring summer cashmere pieces are made from featherweight 100% cashmere making them the perfect cashmere sweater for warmer summer months. The spring summer 2020 collection was inspired by a sailing trip around the coast of Corsica. Deep azure blue winning the colour of the season inspired by the clear tropical waters of the boat only accessible waters of Piana, Corsia.
Styling Summer Cashmere
Cashmere can be styled in so many ways and can really add some fabulous colours to your summer wardrobe. Here are our top five tips for styling your cashmere this summer:
Wear your cashmere post-swim
After going for swim, there is nothing cosier than popping into your cashmere sweater. The fibres will keep you nice and warm and feel so soft against your refreshed skin.
2. Wear your cashmere over a full summer dress
Cashmere sweaters are perfect for wearing over a full summer dress when the weather is as unpredictable as it is here in Ireland. If the sun does come out, you can always pop your beautiful cashmere over your shoulders.
3. Wear your cashmere on cool summer nights
We never go on a night out without our cashmere. It is a great option to bring on summer nights as you may be sitting outside or by the sea as it gets cooler in the evenings. Pop your cosy cashmere on over any outfit for a chic summer look.
