The tail end of our unique British winters can seem to drag on for much longer than they should (storm Eunice we're talking about you here). While we have adored snuggling into our favourite cashmere pieces over Christmas, winter 2021/2022 was one that saw a consumption increase in the pantry & endless Google searches for winter sun holidays in the C&C office search history.
As spring appears on the horizon, hooray, we are starting to switch from chunky knits to more transitional wardrobe staples. Luckily, you don't have to put cashmere away until next year, as with the right choices, your knitwear can be worn through spring and into summer.
One of our absolute favourite qualities about cashmere is its highly adaptable to the weather. This wondrous fibre has remarkable thermal properties that not only keep you warm and snuggly in the winter but also keep you comfortably covered through the warmer parts of the year. Thanks to the unique structure of our garments, they are incredibly breathable and soft, so whatever you're getting up to, you can depend on cashmere to be a top choice for living in the UK.
Not only are our cashmere garments perfect for spring and summer days, but they also pack exceptionally well and so are a practical and luxurious choice for your holiday wardrobe. Whether you are exploring European city breaks or hopping down your favourite coastline on a road trip, a cashmere piece should always be in your suitcase.
Cashmere travel wrap - the perfect companion
While we're on the subject of holidays, our cashmere travel wrap is the perfect travelling companion, and there are so many versatile ways to wear and style it. Casually slung over a shoulder, wrapped about your upper arms as a shawl, or as the most decadent scarf you've ever worn, it's a statement addition to any outfit and adds a chic edge to your look. Neutral colours are always in style, but we love a pop of colour for the spring and summer, such as the stunning travel wrap in our Navy and Grass Green hues.
In the changeable evening temperatures of spring and summer, we love to loosen up our silhouettes and opt for a little less structure. You'll find our Sophia cashmere hoodie is the best antidote to structured blazers and more formal styles. We have designed this hoodie to be an elevated take on loungewear, and with its precision tailoring, it can be dressed up or down and is highly wearable for daytime and casual evenings. Because it is so lightweight and soft, you can throw it on over a cami or t-shirt to enjoy its comforting softness without feeling overdressed for the weather.
Effortless cashmere pop overs
One of our all-time favourites, the Abigail cashmere jumper is a joy to wear all year round. The Abigail has a stepped back to flatter your body shape and is available in a range of tasteful neutrals as well as fresh, vibrant shades. Layered with jeans, a plush scarf, and shearling-lined Chelsea boots, you'll be ready to take on those chilly days in the early spring. You can also pair this versatile, modern piece with capris and sandals in hotter weather, where its oversized design will keep you cool and comfortable.
Newest Cashmere Poncho Shapes
We have introduced a new relaxed cashmere poncho shape featuring all the style details that we know you love. Feminine scoop neckline, relaxed shaping over the waist and hips with side splits for extra comfort and roominess. For cooler, in between season, nothing looks more elegant than teaming this piece with a classic cashmere scarf or wrap. We will be wearing this piece for every season, layered up or down to suit the temperature and simply the best travel item by far.
