Cardies are not what they used to be. They have been re-invented of late and a fantastic range of shapes, sizes and lengths have emerged. The humble cardigan has indeed become a fashion statement all if its own and is no longer just an item that grandma wears.
When it comes to cool cardies, John Lewis has brought a great collection together. Included in that range are these two great pieces. The Longline Boucle Cardigan in grey costs £169.00. You can wrap up in style with this Longline Boucle Cardigan from Jigsaw. Crafted from a soft wool blend with a brush of alpaca, this piece is cut to a floor length shape and features a shawl collar, handy patch pockets, long sleeves and a relaxed fit. Stylish and versatile indeed, you can layer this over casual separates for an instantly warm feel. It’s made of 39% Wool and 22% Alpaca, so it’s no surprise that this is a hand wash item. A quintessentially British brand, Jigsaw was established in 1972 and has a strong identity inspired by country living, quirkiness, irreverence and humour, as seen in this great piece.
Cardies do not all have to have sleeves either, as shown by this Animal Sleeveless Cardigan. For £168.00, you get to unleash your wild side and layer with this statement knit from AllSaints. Crafted from a luxurious blend of wool and mohair, this cardigan features an elegant waterfall front for a statement shape. The all-over contemporary animal print is finished with a block colour border design whilst the sleeveless shape makes it perfect for layering. Slip on over a polo neck jersey and team with denim jeans for a great weekend look. Materials include 48% Wool and 32% Mohair. Certainly a great cardie from contemporary fashion brand AllSaints.
So this winter, you can snuggle up and be right on trend – at the same time!
