Make the most out of your pashmina by teaming it with your favourite accessory. Whether it’s a statement necklace, chunky belt or matching shoes – there’s endless possibilities open for you to try.
Here are just some of the fun ways you can create yourself a whole new look.
- Pair Dark Colours with Lighter Shades
If you really want to make an outfit pop, accessorise with a pashmina of the opposite colour. You can create a bold look by teaming a light dress with a pashmina of a darker shade or, if you want to brighten up an outfit, opt for a white or cream scarf. By choosing a contrasting shade, you can turn a simple outfit into a bold fashion statement and add the perfect finishing touch to your look.
- Matching Headwear
For a polished and sophisticated ensemble, complement your pashmina by matching it to your headwear. If you’re going to a wedding, why not choose a pashmina that’s the same colour tone or style as your fascinator? It works for other occasions too. For a casual yet stylish summer style, you could wear your pashmina as a shawl and match it to your sun hat.
- Give Your Coat a New Lease of Life
If you’re bored with your jacket or coat, why not brighten it up with a pashmina? Not only will it add some softness to your outfit, it can also completely invigorate it and feel like a whole new look. Simply fold it lengthways and then loop it around your neck and layer it over your jacket. Either leave the ends loose or tie into a sophisticated knot.
- Add a Bit of Bling
A brooch is the perfect accessory to add a little sparkle to your outfit. Simply style your pashmina as usual before pinning it in place with your brooch – it couldn’t be easier. Whether it’s big and glistening, or subtle and simple, a brooch is a timeless look that’s simple and easy to pull off. It’s practical too as it will keep your pashmina secured.
- Refresh with Matching Accessories
You don’t have to buy a whole new outfit to refresh your wardrobe. Breathe fresh life into a tired look by matching your pashmina to your other accessories. You will be surprised how different your old black dress or white shirt look with a pashmina and matching bag or shoes.
- Statement Jewellery
Sometimes less is more, especially when it comes to your accessories. A pashmina can be such a bold look that wearing too much jewellery with it can be overpowering. Keep it simple and opt for just one statement piece. Consider how you’ll be wearing your pashmina that day and plan your look around that. If you’re going for a knotted style that covers your chest, choose over-sized earrings or an eye-catching ring.
- Layering with a Belt
Go for a funky look by layering a belt over your pashmina. It can be done over a dress or simple t-shirt to create a fun and stylish look – perfect for an evening out or a party. Why not choose a brightly-coloured or patterned pashmina to make sure it really stands out? Simply loop the pashmina around your neck and let it fall down across your chest and secure your belt over it. Why not cross it over to create a halterneck look?
- Give Your Handbag a Style Overhaul
Your pashmina doesn’t have to just stay on you; it can be used to update your accessories. If your bag is looking a little old and tired, jazz it up by tying your pashmina around the handles and letting it hang down loose. Not only do you get a new look for your bag – you’ll always know where you left your pashmina.
- Beach Style
On your next holiday make a style statement by matching your swimwear to your pashmina. Add some vibrancy to your look with a colourful or patterned style or keep it simple with one colour. A pashmina is the perfect accessory during a beach holiday. Easy to throw on when you need to, it’s not just practical but gives your beach look a touch of sophistication.
There are so many different ways to pair your pashmina with different accessories that trying out looks can give you endless hours of fashion fun. Buying a well-chosen pashmina can give a whole new lease of life to your wardrobe because there will be so many new styling options to try. Once you have got through these suggestions, why not try and come up with some styling ideas for yourself?
The key is to have fun and to go with what you feel looks good – if you stick to that, you can’t fail.
