How to Wear a Cashmere Scarf


Cashmere scarves aren't just meant for fall and winter. Worn creatively, they can be a year-round accessory that keeps you warm, stylish and comfortable. Luscious cashmere feels incomparably soft against the skin, so you'll love cozying up to your scarf while wearing casual and work attire. Stick with neutral-colored cashmere scarves for a go-to accessory that matches everything, or use a boldly colored scarf to brighten up your day.


Dress up your casual weekend wear with a cashmere scarf. "Marie Claire" fashion writer Zoe Glassner winds her cashmere wrap scarf around a tee-shirt and pairs it with jeans --- proof you don't need to be fussy with this luxe fabric.


Wear it wrapped or shawl-style when you need a quick cover-up over a dress. For summer weddings, bistro dining and beach weekends, this scarf keeps you warm and classy-looking.


Take your cashmere scarf to work. Accent a jacket with it or wear it over your fave blouse.


Class up a tunic and leggings look with a belted cashmere scarf. To get this look, drape your scarf around your neck so the sides hang evenly. Then strap a wide belt around your waist. The scarf should fit flat against you for comfort and warmth.


Include this accessory on your vacation pack list. No matter where you're going, there's a good chance the cashmere scarf can keep you warm and fashion-forward. Cabin temperatures fluctuate on an airplane, so having your scarf at the ready can keep you comfortable.
