Fashion First: The humble cardigan



A key trend this Autumn is the humble cardigan, I gave you a little tip about this in my first AW17 post. This weekend we celebrated my grandmother’s 90th birthday, she has a couple of weeks to go until THE big day, but we chose the summer holidays to celebrate to ensure the great-grandchildren could all be there. Interestingly most of the women had cardigans, which all matched their outfits.  I think that’s one of the differences between jumpers and cardigans, jumpers we are happy to go loud and be contrasting and yet cardigans it seem to follow the pashmina clan of having to comply and fit in.

Buttons are an item I can be quite fussy on, if I don’t like the look of the button regardless of the quality of knit, colour or brand – I will not buy it. This one I am wearing above from Hallhuber I loved the buttons instantly and so I was sold on that alone!

I’m hoping this is a trend you will find easy to adopt, here’s a few I’ve been checking out for you…

Balloon Sleeve Knit Cardigan

This one has been flagged on the site as a ‘trending product’ which means you’ve not got long until it’s sold out – only Medium and Large left! I’m loving the sleeves.

Knit Cardigan with Faux Pearl Buttons

Ooh I love this look of wearing three of them together, this is a great idea! I love pearl buttons, fake or real is fine with me! And at £19.99 you can afford to do the combination look.
