Fashion trends appear and disappear on a daily basis; most of them barely lasting a couple of weeks. However, there are styles that are forever trendy, always beautiful and always fashionable. One of those timeless styles is the pashmina shawl. Classic and elegant, the pashmina is one of the most popular women’s accessories. Ever since its appearance on the fashion scene and up to this day, this wardrobe staple has remained a classic. There are certain prints, fabrics and styles that will go out of style after a while, but you can rest assured that the pashmina isn’t one of those.

What makes the pashminas so special? The soft feel, the warmth they offer, the style and the effortless elegance, all these contribute to the appeal of the scarf. But that’s not all that is special about pashminas. They are also extremely versatile items that can be easily dressed up or dressed down; they can be worn both during summer and winter and they go well with pretty much everything else in your wardrobe.

It’s well worth investing in a classic pashmina shawl; you’ll see that it will soon become your most valuable fashion accessory. Here are the top classic cashmere pashminas every woman should own:

A black pashmina shawl

A chocolate pashmina shawl

A nude pashmina scarf – this would also make a gorgeous bridesmaid gift. Plus, the warm cafe-au-lait color is hard to resist!

A gray pashmina – whether you opt for light gray or a dark shade, this is an absolute must-have. A celebrity favorite, the gray pashmina has been worn by Jessica Alba, Kim Kardashian and Gwen Stefani, just to name a few.

A pink pashmina shawl – take a cue from Jennifer Aniston’s look book and update your scarf collection with a beautiful pink pashmina.

A white pashmina shawl – soft and beautiful, the white pashmina will make a nice addition to your everyday wardrobe. If white isn’t your favorite, try another classic, the cream pashmina shawl.

These classic scarves will never fall out of style and that is what makes them an absolute must-have to every woman who loves beautiful fashion accessories.
