Cashmere is a key item for light spring evenings.

Styles range from directional to classic to minimalist and right now black, smoke and pearl are huge favourites.

Shades and textures are silky scarlet, rich wool-blend, chic grey or light, fuzzy peach.

Scarves are a focus for the layered, bright looks seen at Carven, Chloe and Rag & Bone, and the pashmina style rolls functionality, length and colour into one.

Wear a muted version with sunny colours and a silver chain or earrings to really put spring in your step.

A spring pashmina can change you

Wearing cashmere this spring-time

I tried to wear skinny cotton scarves – both grey and blue – in the same way, but the flexibility and comfort weren’t there.

A pashmina really is many pieces of clothing in one, and ideal for a range of weathers and times of day.

Soft on the skin and complementing everything from heavy boots to soft wraps, a bright, floaty pashmina will make your jacket, shoes and jewellery pop.

SS/15 covered all ‘’scarf lifestyles,’’ from bohemian to urban to Parisian chic.

The catwalks clashed patchwork with leather and paired pashminas with tailored jeans, biker belts and block heels.

Street style features a lot of fringing, suede and long cardigans from across the high street.

More of a lifestyle choice than an accessory, a good pashmina can be wound, draped or hung, slung tightly or loosely, made bulky, floaty or warm.

It can be added to heavy knits to keep out the cold or as a light decoration, worn around the city or packed for a day or week away.

Softly seductive and ethically crafted, the right Easter pashmina is part of you; choose it carefully.
