Your lifestyle, your quirk
There is no denying that summer 2012‘s fashions were absolutely fabulous, but I am so ready to get my fall on and start doing some serious fall shopping, and I have a feeling I am not the only one. You may not want to plunk down your hard-earned cash on heavy wool just yet, but don’t be afraid to purchase some cashmere.
Black and darker colors may be tempting, but for now, check out fall 2012’s bright colors like red, wine, orange, and winter white to add to your wardrobe. A colorful cashmere cardigan twinset, sleeveless tank, or tunic will work right now and later on in the season. If you want to start small or are bummed about buying wool, consider a lightweight scarf in a bright, solid color, stripe, or floral print.
One warm weather outfit idea that won’t cause you to melt can include a pretty cashmere scarf or a loose wrap. Pair one of these with a tank and a pair of comfy boyfriend jeans or leather shorts. Another idea is a lightweight tank dress or a pair of oversized pajama pants. Both of these items can be worn right now with summer accessories, and you can wear them layered with other pieces when things cool off a bit more.
For those of you who aren’t fans of bright colors but don’t want to buy black right now, an alternative that will definitely work for fall is a pretty shade of light gray; if you must go dark, try navy.
As long as the style isn’t dated and there isn’t too much detailing, a cashmere garment can be considered a great basic wardrobe piece. For instance, a cashmere V-neck sweater can be dressed up and down all year long by men and women.
Cashmere is definitely wool for all seasons. Cashmere keeps you warm when you need it to, but it also lets you breathe. Cold weather seems like light years away now, but I can’t tell you how many times a cashmere cardigan or wrap came in in handy for chilly air conditioning and evenings over the summer.
