We've compiled a helpful guide to show you how to wear a pashmina for ultimate transitional style, including timeless and elegant ways to wear pashminas throughout the summer. Perfect for wearing on a beach holiday, or jetting off on a warm city break, these looks make your favourite pashmina scarf even more versatile.1.Style as a headscarf

Keep your cool during the warmer weather by wearing your brightest pashmina as a vintage-inspired headscarf instead. There are several ways to tie your pashmina. 

Tying in a bow: First, pin your hair into a bun at the crown of your head, and place the middle of your unfolded pashmina at the nape of your neck. Bring the ends of your pashmina to the middle of your forehead, tie a knot, and then tie the long ends into a large bow for a dramatic and eye-catching look.

Spiral knot: As above, tie the ends of your pashmina in the middle of your forehead, but instead of tying the ends into a bow, twist them around one another into a tight spiral and then tuck the loose ends under the scarf by your ear, leaving the 'spiral' on show.

Turban style: Tie your pashmina around your head and tie a double knot at the front of your forehead. Open out the ends of your pashmina widthways, and tuck them in at the back of your head so that your hair is completely covered by the fabric. For the perfect finishing touch to your cashmere pashmina, why not add a colourful brooch to keep it in place and add a hint of sparkle?

Try one of these simple styles with a boldly coloured cashmere pashmina from our collection to instantly add a splash of colour to your favourite outfits.

2. Wear as a luxurious beach sarong


Whether you're enjoying a staycation at home or going abroad, a soft and colourful pashmina is the perfect addition to any beach holiday.  Drape your pashmina around your waist and knot at the hip, leaving the ends long to style it as a skirt. Alternatively, wrap your pashmina around your back, cross the ends over your chest, and then tie it behind your neck for an easy alternative to a vest. 

Incredibly versatile and lightweight, our cashmere shawls are available in primrose yellow and can be easily transformed from a winter staple to a glamorous beach sarong, all with a cleverly placed knot or two. This sunny shade is ideal for summer and would complement many of your favourite swimsuit colours.

3. Wear as a classic cover-up

Not just a summer staple, your pashmina shawl can be draped across your shoulders throughout the year for an instant wardrobe update.

If you're looking for new ways to wear your cashmere pashminas, why not wear  them as an alternative to a light jacket or cardigan by using our helpful guide below?

Style One: Tie the ends of your pashmina at the middle of your chest to keep it securely in place in the summer breeze.

Style Two: Put on your pashmina as though you were wearing it as a scarf, but bring the ends under your armpits and knot them in the middle of your back to create a shawl. Unfold the fabric over your shoulders and upper arms so that they are covered.

Style Three: Place your pashmina around your neck and let the ends hang loose, at equal lengths, in front of your body. Put on a thin belt around your waist and over the scarf to cinch it in. For extra coverage when the day begins to cool, unfold your pashmina so that it covers your shoulders and upper arms.

Our gorgeous pashmina cashmere stole in rich brown is ideal to wear across your shoulders for a classic look whatever the weather.

4. Knot your cashmere pashmina in a new way

If you like wearing your pashmina as a light scarf, why not try a new way of knotting it? Twist the length of your pashmina before knotting it around your neck, or create a 'chain link' effect by tying several knots along the loose ends of your pashmina, around two or three inches apart.

Tying your scarf into a classic bow also adds a fun touch to an everyday, casual look throughout the seasons.  Our cashmere shawls, available in classic white lux and lilac pink, are the perfect pashminas to try out your most creative styles.
