Musings of the fashion and beauty kind, with a little travel thrown in.

The Art of The Black Cashmere Jumper

We’re finally reading ‘Spark Joy’ by Marie Kondo (the only thing we could get on board with during that awful Gilmore Girls revival). Albeit, we’re fashionably late to the party. But you see, we’ve read Parisian Chic, we’ve read The Curated Closet. French Lessons from Madame Chic? Yeah, we’ve had them. In fact, we’re so busy reading all about perfecting the ultimate capsule wardrobe, that we don’t ever actually get round to doing it.

There are a lot of opinions about what we women ought to have in our wardrobe and this usually comes down to a few key basics. Now, that just won’t do. We like to shop. We do try to choose carefully and chose well but we like to shop. Champagne problems, you know?
One thing though that we absolutely swear by is a simple, straightforward black jumper.

The Art of The Black Cashmere Jumper

Yep. It’s like a white tee. Except, not. You see, the black jumper is an Audrey Hepburn classic.  It’s workwear appropriate. It looks oh-so-nineties with faded ‘Mom’ jeans. It’s super glamorous with a pencil skirt. Edgy with a mini. What’s not to like? It’s better if you get cashmere. Because, you know, buy well.

Like anything, it’s how you wear it. How you style it. A black bin bag is the ultimate Hallowe’en costume and no trip to Elliots is necessary. A black jumper can pretty much look like how ever you want it to look.

Exhibit A. Dressed down with faded jeans and Converse. Classic.

Exhibit B. Mix it up with accessories. Tan and black look so good together so keep the ensemble black on black and then add a simple scarf, flats, and some arm candy to lighten the look.

Those delicate gold chains and fine bracelets? They look super luxe worn with a simple black jumper and the contrast shows those pretty little accessories off nicely.

Make like Audrey and pair with ankle length, tailored trousers, either matching black, although navy is a nice alternative and check is pretty cool, and stylish flats for the office, drinks, or basically whatever.
How To Wear The Black Cashmere Jumper

The best part about the black jumper is that you can go full on goth with smokey eyes and your favorite dark purple lipstick. But what’s really on point is a simple red lip and perfect winged eyeliner. This go-to will save you precious moments in the morning and will put an end to any flaffing. Likewise, heading out for dinner and drinks, the simple black sweater and red lip combo is utterly fail-proof.

 Naturally, we can’t recommend enough this Benetton cashmere blend option. Complete with a relaxed yet slim fit and crafted from a fine and yet easily machine washed cashmere blend. What’s not to like?

    • Hi Georgina, thanks for your comment! We love the black sweater because it’s so handy for work. Either under a chic blazer and with tailored trousers or over a white shirt and maybe with some cropped, ankle length trousers and brogues. It’s also really nice with denim. If you want to push the ’90’s look, it looks great with faded ‘Mom’ or ‘Boyfriend’ jeans and flats. Hope that helps!
