Vintage inspired cashmere sweaters were all the rage when it came to the runways during New York Fashion Week. Every designer and brand from Gucci to Velvet by Graham and Spencer has picked up the new trend, which pairs casual sweaters with luxury materials such as cashmere for a modern take on an old look.
While many of the sweaters that models wore may seem out of reach featuring bold styles and luxurious materials designers like Velvet by Graham and Spencer have created modern, wearable styles that are contemporary and stylish without the runway. As you probably already know, cashmere offers an unforgettable texture and warmth which makes it a must have fashion piece for your winter wardrobe. Some of Velvet’s latest collection like the Jamila Cashmere Crewneck Sweater is a great demonstration of a mix of old and new styles with the retro sweatshirt style crew neckline combined with the current color blocking trend. This sweater is stylish and trendy while still being comfortable and easy to wear.
Don’t worry if you’ve never worn cashmere before. Here are a few ideas to get you started:
4 Ways to Wear Cashmere Sweaters by Velvet
- Pair cashmere sweaters with white or black skinny leg jeans to create the ultimate fashion statement. For a bolder look, try a royal blue, teal or bright pink color jeans or leggings to go with a white cashmere sweater.
- Wear a sweater with a form-fitting skirt over tights. White cashmere, bright skirts and navy or dark tights are perfect for days that are cool.
- Wear a button-down blouse under a V-neck cashmere sweater, allowing the hem and collar to pop through to provide contrast. Patterns on the button-down add interest to a solid-colored sweater, and this look is perfect for office casual.
- Opt for solid, color-on-color stripes or subtle patterns when it comes to picking leggings for cashmere sweater dresses. Dress up the style with a thick belt, bangles on the wrists and ankle boots for a comfortable look that will never go out of style.
Cardigans On the Runway
Retro sweaters and cropped jackets weren’t the only items to make a comeback on down the runway this year, either. Cardigans are everywhere this season and a piece this easy to wear is sure to fill up closet space quickly. Cardigans by Velvet promise comfort without sacrificing quality. Velvet’s Vandora cardigan as an example utilizes a blend of modal and cotton fabric which gives it a soft, textured look that is reminiscent to the popular burn-out fabric trend. Like Velvet by Graham and Spencer cashmere sweaters, these cardigans feel amazing to the touch, and the Velvet offers several styles for fashionistas to choose from: zipper front, flyaway and cropped, among them.
Grab a casual t-shirt and jeans to wear with cropped Velvet brand cardigan for a casual look during the day. You’ll be comfortable as you run errands and shop for groceries, but you’ll never look sloppy. The same cardigan becomes office appropriate when paired with pumps, black or charcoal slacks and a pretty blouse and you can even go out in the evening by swapping slacks and shoes for fitted dark wash jeans and boots.
