In a winter wardrobe slump? This style of knitwear could be the thing to solve it.
Like Marmite, the cardigan is often one of those items you either love or hate. If you’re veering towards the latter, then hear us out – we’ll do our best to help you change your mind. Year after year the cardigan makes a comeback, which is no surprise, considering that it strikes the perfect balance between chic and cosy. Whether you’re layering it over a T-shirt or wearing it on its own, there are limitless ways to style the humble cardigan and we love wearing it over a midi skirt to the office or tucking it into jeans at the weekend.
While we’re big fans, of course, of the button-up styles or the high neck with fancy collars iterations that are doing the rounds right now, it’s the wrap style that’s gaining a lot of attention.
