Winter is well and truly here. There’s a rather strong chill in the air, the sky turns midnight blue at 4pm and everyone you meet is wrapped up in at least three different layers. There are Christmas movies on every channel, the quaint, English towns are adorned with sparkly lights and sleigh bells are ringing.
The festive period exudes love and brings with it every opportunity to cuddle up to someone, to share a mulled wine or hot chocolate or settle down and watch a Christmas classic.
But what to wear on such an occasion? You want to be warm, look sophisticated and not end up with layer-upon-layer so you end up akin to a Michelin man.
With its unparalleled warmth, luxurious heritage and overall chic appeal, cashmere takes the ordinary and turns it extraordinary, which is exactly what you need when seeking the perfect winter date night outfits.
Here are our top five winter date outfits and some date ideas too:
Number one on the winter date outfits, must be the addition of a cashmere scarf. Our deluxe cable knit scarf is available in two colours: natural cream and navy blue. The velvety smooth cashmere provides sumptuous warmth, while still maintaining a stylish and classy look.
Our cashmere scarves are unparalleled when it comes to softness and warmth. Investing in high-quality accessories that will see you through many a winter season to come is crucial when it comes to creating a sustainable, capsule wardrobe that doesn’t compromise on style. If you’re interested in how to build on your cashmere accessories, there’s some more information here.
Winter Date idea: Whether it’s a first date or simply taking some time out with your partner, nothing beats having a mulled wine and walking round one of Britain’s picturesque towns. You could even make a flask of mulled wine and go on a wintery walk in the country air.
Next on the list, we have our timeless cashmere cape, in an alluring shade of charcoal grey and sophisticated camel trim edges. Our luxury cape is a wonderfully warm, yet featherlight and soft accessory. Available in one size, the cape is large enough to wrap around the body for a luxurious embrace.
It’s the ideal choice for any winter date outfit, adding warmth but being so light it can be easily worn under a thick winter coat without being too bulky.
Winter Date Idea: Don your ice skates and head to the ice rink, it’s the perfect place to have some fun and get to know your partner. Our cashmere cape will keep you warm and looking elegant even if you are a bambi on ice!
The Cable Knit Pashmina is one of our winter date outfits must haves. It’s the softness and weight that you would expect from a scarf but with all the sophistication, warmth, and richness that you would expect from one of our more traditional pashminas.
Our luxurious ash brown cable knit pashmina is imbued with soft, hazel ash-brown tones and can be worn in all seasons to add glamour and warmth to any attire.
Winter Date Idea: We should never underestimate the power of the sea air and just because it’s cold outside doesn’t mean that we should stay indoors. Head down to the beach and go for a brisk walk on the beach, cosy up in a nearby pub, complete with a roaring fire, glass of red wine and mince pie. Our cable knit pashmina will keep you warm in the chill of the sea air and keep you toasty by the fire.
A vividly, rich and verdant racing green skin to the infamous Aston Martin – it exudes luxury. It’s created with a blend of cashmere and merino wool and is slightly larger than our standard size, it moves seamlessly with your every move. It offers a weightless warmth and versatility that you cannot get from any other material.
The colour of this poncho is one of our favourites and deserves to stand out. Pair it with your favourite jeans and some black riding boots for an elegant and sophisticated winter date outfit.
Winter Date Idea: Search on Google and find the closest festive market. There are bound to be plenty to choose from in your local area. Allow the wafts of star anise, cinnamon and freshly sliced orange to fill the air with festive merriment. Twinkling lights, songs of joy and festive treats to tickly the tastebuds - the romance will take care of itself.
Who doesn’t love a pair of fluffy, warm, enveloping cashmere socks? Created in a natural cream and navy blue, they are ideal for snuggling up by the fire. Knitted in our signature cable knit pattern, complete with a stylish ribbed finish.
Either keep your feet toasty and warm under a pair of leather boots or wear alone by a roaring fire with a cup of hot chocolate.
Winter Date Idea: It may be cliché, but there’s no better winter date (in our opinion) than lighting that fire, turning on the Christmas tree lights and putting on your favourite Christmas movie. Create some of your favourite canapés, open a bottle of bubbly, sit back and relax.
The Conclusion: Why is Cashmere perfect for Winter?
Cashmere is not only elegant, but it is extremely practical. Due to the weight of the goat hair, cashmere provides an incredible warmth-to-weight ratio. Although wool is also derived from animal sources; it is much coarser and bulkier, cashmere is eight-times warmer than wool.
Cashmere is one of the most sought-after, luxurious fabrics in the world. If you want to add elements of luxury and look effortlessly chic, while remaining warm in this cold weather, then we recommend adding some cashmere accessories for the perfect winter date outfit.
