Think cardigans can’t be cool? Think again
The cardigan is in the spotlight now, thanks to Prada’s beaded designs for autumn. Think of this as your new season investment piece, long-wearing and worth the extra cost. To update yours, think laid-back – Valerie’s rose-coloured cardie open with jeans, or Flossie’s patterned design with track pants and trainers. Or pair with something jazzier: see Pam’s striped cardie with a pleated yellow skirt, or Lavinia’s yellow cardie with silver trousers. And Elee’s green metallic, worn with a candy-striped dress, shows the statement cardigan is here.
