Diamond is April's birthstone colour and a girl's best friend, so accordingly www.pashminasdirect.co.uk have reduced a selection of pale pashminas (mostly ivory and in our Wedding or Red Carpet range) that feature Swarovski, crystal or beading embellishments. You really can't go wrong with a combination of cashmere and bling!
70% Pashmina Cashmere & 30% Silk Shawl with Beaded fringe
One of the most popular shawls is the Pashmina Cashmere & Silk Plain Shawl with Beaded Tassels. This is currently reduced as a birthstone offer in Ivory and Cream. However, don't despair if you miss it this time around - Pashminas Direct and www.mayfair-valley.co.uk do put various colours on offer in this style regularly. The weight of the beads makes it drape consistently; a useful benefit when you want to enjoy an occasion rather than fiddle with a shawl.
Another shawl in the spotlight this month is the Greek Key Swarovski pashmina shawl. It is such an unusual design to finish off a pashmina, and very simply chic. http://www.pashminasdirect.co.uk/Details.asp?ProductID=246 It's currently on the www.pashminasdirect.co.uk Bridal page which is worth checking for summer looks, even if you are not a bride. Ivory and Cream are classic colours for evening wear shawls - crisp in the summer and elegant in the winter, it's a versatile neutral that earns its keep.
This autumn Mayfair Valley introduced a pure cashmere knitted bolero which is embellished in Swarovski crystals. The original white sample is here in size 10-12 and with a 50% discount on the RRP:
Another pure pashmina cashmere, this time in a very fine knit, is the Stardust Sweater (UK 6-8) Taken into occasion wear by it's own sequin corsage, this is an elegant style that looks stunning for spring with pale pants or dramatic with black in winter.
For simple elegance, the Lightweight Pashmina Cashmere & Silk Shawl with Swarovski - Starlight Wedding gives a great drape with a hint of sparkle. An ideal choice in plain ivory for summer events.
