A Surprising Sartorial New Season Star

It’s funny, The Cardigan has really taken a back seat in recent years to its trendier, cooler sibling: The Jumper. We get it we really do…. it’s so easy to wear, no need to worry about what’s going on underneath, it’s a no brainer. But and there’s a big cardigan cheering but coming… this season things are about to change. Like Billy the Kid riding into town guns ablazing, here comes The Cardigan ready to show us who’s boss.

We are just about over jumpers, not 100% but at running on 85% RN, having worn them practically everyday since October in one form or another.

No, no times are a changing and we are championing The Cardi.

Take these 2 midi dresses. Both gorgeously floral and colourfully fun ergo perfect for the new season. Yet in our heart of hearts we know that their wear if we buy them right about now might be a little limited given the single digit temperatures.

So what’s a gal to do??

Enter your night in shining wool armour: The Chunky Cardi. This dazzling devil will enable you to show off your gorgeous new frock front & centre but also keep the chill at bay. Granted a chunky jumper styled over said frock is *also* a pretty cool look but we have a feeling the cardigan is going to come to the rescue on many an occasion throughout the year. So pack away those sweaters {come on Spring, give us a good one and pronto} and perhaps keep a little space for our handy cardigan friends.

We think like us, you’ll be throwing them over your outfit on those chilly Summer nights, style with denim shorts and a retro tee to add a practical & cosy feel or toughen up a whimsy floaty mini dress with one {‘cos on another style side note.. mini wrap dresses are not going anywhere this year}

Just to clarify when it comes to cardigans, just like Kitkats and baby’s legs, Chunky is Best. Go big or go home.
