Frosty mornings have started to be more frequent recently and it’s finally starting to feel like winter for me. Although I’m not a fan of getting up ten minutes earlier to de-ice my car of a morning, I am a fan of getting wrapped up and feeling all cosy when I do venture outside. In fact, when I’ve finally shifted the cold virus that everyone seems to have at the moment (shout out if you do, hang in there!) I can’t wait to take a lovely Sunday stroll in the crisp air.
Of course I can’t stay out in the cold that long so I prefer to layer up so I can shed my layers once inside – like a butterfly emerging from a cocoon if you will. Reality is me huffing and puffing trying not to break a sweat in front of the pubs 1000 degree fire whilst trying to tug my arm out of my cardy. So if you’re after this look too, or if you’re able to handle your layering with a little bit more grace, I’ve chosen a few of my favourite cardigans around right now.
Animal Print Cardigan – Manon Baptiste at Navabi (£48.74 on offer).
I’m not always a big animal print fan but when I saw this grey/camel leopard print combo I knew I had to have it! I had a pair of trousers in the same print a couple of years back and I always got so many compliments on the print, I’m hoping I’ll get the same in this cardy!
Beige Sequin Knit Cardigan – River Island Plus (£40)
This cardy comes with an added bit of subtle sparkle, and is available in black too for those of us who like to wear black 24/7! I opted to feature this colour though as I thought it was more spring like so would last that bit longer going into the spring / summer season. Heck, with the English weather I’d probably still be adding it to my outfit in July!
Red Cherry Cardigan – City Chic at Evans (£40)
This cardigan is so not my usual style but it’s so cute. I’m loving embroidery at the moment and this retro fine knit cardigan is just super cute. If you love your vintage styling it’s definitely a must have.
Fine Knit Off Shoulder Cardigan– ASOS Curve (£16)
Another fine kit selection, and lets be honest this is a top, but I had to include it as it’s super cute! I think it would look fab tucked into an A-Line skirt for another retro vibe.
Dogtooth Brushed Cardigan – Simply Be (£35)
I adore this one. Perfect for adding a pattern to a simple outfit and I think this would be great for the office too. I love the fact that it’s almost knee length, perfect to feel cosy in.
Stitched Edge Cape -Koko at Lovedrobe (now £22.50)
I think I’ve found my Butterfly Cardigan! It would be pretty hard to get caught up in this trying to get it off wouldn’t it. Maybe it’s where I’ve been going wrong and I should actually just wear capes from here on in?!
