I usually shy away from posts about wearing one thing in multiple ways. Usually because once I find a great way to wear something, I stick to it. I’m not particularly adventurous in my sartorial choices and firmly subscribe to the ‘if it ain’t broke don’t fix it’ theory.
… except when it comes to knitwear. From late September to (let’s be honest) mid-May, knitwear is my homeboy. I wear my collection of sweaters, jumpers and cardigans day in, day out, and pairing those pieces with jeans can get a little repetitive. So when knitwear’s involved, I’m happy to mix it up.
I’ve also developed a bit of a habit for cashmere.
So here’s one beautiful cashmere jumper – sent to me by the lovely folks at Pure Collection – worn in three different ways for three different activities.

The jumper I chose for this challenge is a gorgeous rose pink – the perfect partner to my tapestry print skirt. With black tights, leather booties and a tonal necklace this smart but sweet outfit worked well for a morning of meetings.
Next up was the afternoon stroll. Rob and I visited Yorkshire Sculpture Park last week and as it was a freezing cold day, I thought I’d put my jumper to the test. With a Uniqlo Heattech tee underneath and a big scarf to bundle up with, I was toasty warm.

For date night, I decided to give my jumper a tougher edge with leathers, skinny jeans and block heel boots. The soft pink looks lovely against black, and the peep of polka dot collar adds detail. Because the jumper is a ‘boyfriend’ fit (read: loose), it works best with something fitted on the bottom and these Topshop Joni Jeans are just the ticket.
Ta-dah! Cashmere, three ways. I’ve actually worn this jumper many more times that I’ve documented – it’s the perfect throw-on-and-go piece, it keeps me warm and is super soft and snugly. What more can you ask from knitwear?
How would you style this jumper?
