Bamboo Body Knit Collection

25 June 2015

I absolutely love bamboo fabric!

I adore the luxurious, soft, silky feel of it; and the lovely drape and weight of it oozes quality and comfort. I also like the fact that it is a natural fabric and an eco-friendly and sustainable resource.

The team at Bamboo Body sent over some amazing knits, which I’m so excited to share with you!

I also have a special discount code at the end of this post to share – yay!

BambooBody Knit Collection AW15

First up, this is this Bamboo Cashmere Scoop Knit.

It is made from 95% bamboo, 3% cashmere and 2% wool. I’m wearing the knit in Oatmeal XS, but it also comes in Black and Cacao (dark brown).

Oh my, it is sooooo lovely!

It is so luxurious, soft, comfortable, breathable and lightweight… yet it’s still slightly thick enough to be warming, without being too heavy or chunky.

I found that this jumper was easy to dress up to create a modern and stylish outfit.

Plus it was easy to layer under my coats, because it wasn’t bulky.

I’m so in love with this particular scoop neck style and the oatmeal colour. It’s so elegant, chic and it falls very nicely. I just want to wear it everyday!

I’m also wearing a top like this Essential Scoop Tee underneath the jumper.

This is the Bamboo Cashmere V Neck in black, and this time I went one size up to a Size S, because I wanted to wear it in a more slouchy, relaxed style.

Again the knit is made from 95% bamboo, 3% cashmere and 2% wool. And again the style did not disappoint!

I love the comfortable, smooth, soft texture of the knit and I just adore the way it falls on my body.

I have been wearing this jumper with skinny jeans, faux leather pants and pencil skirts. Love it!

I’m also wearing an Above Elbow Scoop Top underneath.

Knits are tricky garments to buy, because quality usually goes hand in hand with price.

Until now I have struggled to find a high-quality luxurious knit that didn’t cost me $200+.

These bamboo cashmere jumpers tick ALL my boxes: high-quality look and feel, quality fabric, high in comfort, classic minimal style, zero itch factor and great price.

Lastly I also tried on the Bamboo Duster Jacket which is like a long cardigan. Again I’m wearing the Oatmeal colour in Size XS.

It’s a lovely, flattering and lightweight jacket; it also has a slight taper in the waist to make it look more fitted and slimming.

Do excuse my awkward smile, I was trying to test how the fabric would feel next to my skin (without my top!) and now it looks like casual loungewear that you wear at home.

But of course, it easily layers over a camisole, t-shirt, blouse, shirt or dress, as it has an extremely versatile style.

I feel that it is polished enough to throw over your shoulders at an evening event, and it is perfectly suited to be part of an office wardrobe.
