Colour Pop: Colour Blocking with N.Peal Cashmere
The longer days and brighter sunshine of spring always has us naturally reaching for the colourful cashmere pieces in our wardrobe - and with the colour-blocking trend, we never run out of bold new ways to wear our favourite pieces!
Our Spring Summer Women's Cashmere Collection from N.Peal is blooming with bright, zesty shades and pretty pastels that are perfect to pair together, to create stylish colour blocking looks that will take you through the seasons.
What is Colour Blocking?
Colour blocking is simply the art of composing an outfit using solid blocks of colour, whether those are contrasting yet complementary shades from opposite sides of the colour wheel, colours that are adjacent to one other on the colour wheel ('analogous' colours), or different shades of the same colour. Colour blocking is an easy, versatile and fun trend that anyone can try - and our cashmere collection for women is sure to make you feel inspired!
Go Bold with Colourful Cashmere
The most daring way to wear the colour blocking trend is to wear colourful shades that are complementary to one another - such as a bright pink with a vibrant teal, or sunny yellow with striking violet. On the colour wheel, the two colours opposite one another are complementary. Try this by coupling your colourful pieces of cashmere such as cashmere jumpers or cardigans with accompanying items such as a cashmere scarf or vest.
One of the most stunning pieces from our collection, the Multi Cable Box Cashmere Jumper in Primrose Yellow and New Ivory would be guaranteed to turn heads when paired with a skirt, trousers, or handbag in a shade of green with yellow tones. Or, layer our V Neck Cashmere Cardigan in Rich Coral Pink from our Cashmere Cardigans range over the Superfine Cashmere Shell Top in Sand Brown for an easy, yet simply sophisticated weekend look. The luxurious cashmere fabric provides a modern take on an understated vest.
Create an Eye-catching Look with Analogous Colours
Analogous colours are those that sit adjacent to one another on the colour wheel, such as fiery red and burnt orange, and turquoise and forest green. Wearing blocks of these shades together creates a coherent look that's still beautifully striking.
Our Woven Cashmere Scarf in Ocean Blue makes a perfect partner to the Round Neck Cashmere T-Shirt in Cornflower. Or, when those warmer days turn to cooler nights, team the Superfine Ribbed Maxi Cashmere Dress in Navy Blue with a Superfine Cropped Cashmere Cardigan in Reef Blue for a feminine yet effortlessly fabulous look.
Go for Pastel Hues of Cashmere
The muted, soft tones of pastels makes them so easy to wear together. Whether you're drawn to shades of baby pink, lemon yellow, powder blue or lavender, pastels are always a winning combination for colour blocking, and simply perfect for springtime.
Our delicate Superfine Long Sleeve Cashmere Top in Lilac Grey is an incredibly versatile shade for any time of year. Wear it with slim fitted linen trousers in a pale blue, and a Pashmina Cashmere Stole in Cornflower Blue for relaxed style. Alternatively, on warmer days, why not take inspiration from the sunshine with a buttercup yellow skirt and rose pink sandals?
