Come and try on 10 simple ways to wear my Mimi & Thomas® cashmere button wrap! 

My customers love my cashmere multi-ways button wrap because it's utterly soft, versatile, great value and love its packaging and comes with useful how to wear guide. They became repeat customers and bought even more in different colours for themselves, as gifts to treat someone special. So a thought to share how I wear my cashmere multi-ways wrap in all these 10 ways for a school run, business meeting, travelling, Sunday stroll, cocktail nights to a glamorous ball. They are very simple to do and won't take a minute, you can transform your cherished cashmere wrap to more than just a poncho and wear it in all seasons. I'm 5 foot 3 tall and a size 12 modelling my wrap but they really are one size fits all for everyone! I am styling my outfits with different colour ones but rest assured these styles all come from this single multi-ways cashmere wrap.     

Day 1: V neck poncho / school run

Drape the cashmere wrap over the shoulders and button in front. It works well with wearing a shirt underneath and flick the collar out.

Tips: Leave the top button unbuttoned to create a deeper V neckline.

Here's my quick layer up school run look with my navy pure cashmere button wrap and my favourite sketchers!

Day 2: Poncho / Sunday stroll

Drape the cashmere sheet over the shoulder and button in front. Move buttons to the side of your shoulder. 

This is very easy to do and create a flattering asymmetric hem poncho. 

Here's my weekend "country" look wearing my burgundy cashmere button wrap, a navy felt hat from Gap and my Timberlands chelsea boots.

Day 3: Shrug / Business meeting

Fold the cashmere wrap in half lengthwise, button the buttons on each side to create a tube. Put your arms through here. 

Here's my take on a tone-on-tone outfit with a dusky pink swallows blouse, beige check trousers with my super soft beige cashmere wrap as a shrug, carrying my new blush pink nappa leather travel clutch. This will work really well over a lovely cocktail dress attending weddings, christenings or even in the office for a smarter luxurious layer instead of a cardigan. The back also drapes beautifully.

Day 4: Scarf / Travelling

Fold the cashmere wrap in quarters lengthwise, button up and wrap round the neck to create a snuggly cosy cashmere scarf. Bliss.

This is my travel look in my Burberry cashmere/wool coat and my black croc embossed leather travel clutch, accent with light grey pure cashmere wrap made into a scarf.

Day 5: Snood / Going to the cinema

Fold the cashmere wrap in half lengthwise and button the end buttons with opposite sides to create a loop. Feed the hoop overhead then twist around the neck to feed it through the head again, this becomes a stylish double infinity scarf.

The great thing about this is you can wear the cashmere wrap over the jacket and keep yourself snug and warm during colder months. Here's my latest look I worn my charcoal pure cashmere wrap as a snood over my greatest find in Salisbury's Tu the other day at their 25% off clothing event- my new leather jacket, sling on my silver leather cross body bag, navy tunic flare dress, black nubuck boots. Off I go!

Day 6: Pashmina / Going to a party

Drape the cashmere wrap over the shoulders. My cashmere wrap is a 2-ply knitted version of a pashmina, it is thicker and looks more luxurious than a lighter weight, woven pashmina you find commonly online/ high street.  

You can also leave one side longer than the other, and throw the longer end over the opposite shoulder with a twist to create an elegant drape.

Day 7: Capelet / Just a cashmere day!

Fold the cashmere wrap in half widthwise and button the bottom 3 buttons. Feed the hoop over head with buttons in front. Pull the cashmere hoop upwards, twist the hoop at the back of your neck then feed it over your head to create a turtle neck, adjust the drape on both shoulders.

I am in love with this bold royal blue and grey combo at the moment. I am wearing my royal blue cashmere blend multi-ways wrap as a cape over my pure cashmere Audrina long cardigan. Cashmere on cashmere, have a cashmere day!

Day 8: Cowl neck poncho / Shopping trip

Drape the cashmere wrap over the shoulders and button in front, then move the buttons round to the back. If you want a deep cowl neckline, leave the top button undone at the back, so you can pull the front neckline down easily.

I love this cowl neckline as much as the side poncho I styled earlier. It gives you a blank canvas to accessorise with a statement necklace. I am wearing my dark green pure cashmere wrap as a cowl neck poncho, the ultimate classic leopard court heels and match my outfit with my tan brown leather cross body.

Day 9: Vest / Outdoor at the weekend

Fold the cashmere wrap in half lengthwise, button the bottom 3 buttons. Feed both your arms through the hoop with the 3 buttons at the back. 

This is another style apart from the scarf, snood, bolero you can wear together with a big jacket in the colder months. This is my Saturday morning look taking my boy to his tennis lesson. In the spirit of this sport look, here's a few failed jump shots and got one in the end.

Day 10: Stay on shawl / Going to a ball

Repeat steps from previous Vest style, pull the cashmere wrap over the shoulder backwards to create a shawl that will stay put nicely on your shoulders.

Here's my take on wearing my black pure cashmere wrap as a shawl and style with my silver leather half moon clutch on a dark purple Lipsy floral lace dress with clever draping around my belly!
