Pure Cashmere Plain Knitted Slouchy Beanie - get 15% off with code mymidlife

Morning ladies, regular readers will know by now I'm a huge fan of cashmere & may remember my post last Autumn, (see here) about a new brand that had come to my attention.  So you can imagine my delight when Italy In Cashmere got back in touch about working together again this season.

Before I share with you my top picks + an exclusive discount code I wanted to just address the difference of cashmere compared to other knitted fabrics, as unless you've taken the plunge you will  no doubt be wondering what all the fuss is about, let alone the cost.  I know I certainly used to.

Well compared to other materials cashmere is extremely soft, gorgeous to wear (with no itching) & most importantly very warm, so yes it really is worth the extra pennies.  Plus of course it offers that element of luxury & personally I would rather have fewer jumpers but ones that are cashmere, as you don't need as much bulk to keep warm come the colder months.  In my view once you've worn cashmere other materials simply don't compare.  That's not to say of course the cost doesn't need to be considered but where you can invest start swapping your knitwear over & of course a great way of doing this is by taking advantage of discount codes, such as the exclusive one I have to share with you for 15% off everything at Italy In Cashmere with code mymidlife.

Personally if you're looking to invest & wanting to start to build your cashmere collection I would advise starting with neutral colours such as cream, navy, black & grey.  An oversized cardi & crew neck jumper are great versatile buys that can be dressed up or down & styled with everything from jeans to leather leggings to maxi dresses to lace pencil skirts.  The options really are endless.  

Or if you want something that can be worn on a daily basis & offers that little bit of luxury that you can pull on as you leave the house then consider treating yourself to a hat & some wristwarmers (which are brilliant for keeping hands toasty but being able to still use your smartphone).  Italy In Cashmere have several designs to choose from but personally I don't think you can go wrong with the slouchy beanie shown above & their fingerless wristwarmers & of course light grey is not only a stunning shade to invest in, it's also extremely practical for wearing with a whole host of other colours.

Likewise a poncho cape is another highly versatile piece & perfect for layering for Autumn days.  The above roll neck cape comes in a variety of colours with all your neutrals covered such as navy, black, cream, camel & charcoal, with their full range being able to view here.  

So you can get a full idea of how these items fit, Italy In Cashmere have kindly sent me my top picks to style.  All items are available in the one size so no worrying about ordering a size true to you & of course they're also available in a wide variety of colours.

Another great cashmere piece I find extremely versatile & definitely worth the investment is a cashmere wrap.  I use mine for travelling as I don't know about you but I always find there can be a draught from air conditioning, as well as finding ideal for warmth when going to the cinema.  Also for me it truly comes into it's own as an oversized scarf.  I'll team mine with everything from my biker jacket to a blazer & it's surprising the amount of warmth you can get from added one of these to your outfit.

Now there's probably no need to explain why I love the above poncho cape.  Both the colour & design are quite simply timeless & it would be ideal for keeping cosy & stylish on the school run.  You could even add the slouchy beanie & wrist warmers together with the wrap for ultimate warmth & style.

I just love the baby pink wrap next to the soft grey of the cape & again it's amazing how it can transform just a simple skinny jeans & tee combo.

Another great stylish piece is the oversized cardigan - perfect for belting with a maxi dress, or worn undone with leather leggings/skinny jeans.  The options really are endless & with the addition of a belt or brooch a look that can be changed many a time.

I've teamed it with a breton & cropped kick flare trousers & added a pop of red & a splash of animal print for a little interest.  Plus the jumper would be ideal for throwing over a summer maxi dress to enable summer favourites to make an appearance all year long.
