My love affair with the ‘cardigan’

I have never been one of those girly girls that like to look ‘pretty’. My wardrobe has an abundance of black and white. I tend to accessorise my outfits with colour. Even with make-up, it’s a whip of mascara and a nude gloss smeared across the lips and I’m ready to leave the house.

So I was surprised to see me buying a couple of cardigans recently – which is an item of clothing that I would never have considered was my style. They remind me of my mum or nana – but not me. I’m thinking that I could still be traumatised from when I used to visit my nana and she would be busy knitting some lovely thick, woolly number, with bright gaudy buttons. I guess this was a step up from the round-neck jumpers (think Mark Darcy from the movie Bridget Jones Diary).
With the new season’s looks very masculine with tailored crisp shirts and suiting, why not try a cardigan rather than a jacket as an alternative. Of course, with so many lovely dresses to choose from such as Kate Sylvester and Juliette Hogan’s new ranges, a cardigan would be a perfect accessory.

Here are a couple of cardigan ideas for under NZ$70.00.  Photo 1 – Forever New, Photo 2 – Glassons, Photo 3 – Max

I fell into the art of style quite by accident. There was no defining moment when I decided that I knew what I wanted to do. I want people to feel good about themselves. Many don’t know where to shop and/or how to wear fashion. It has never been solely about cost, but of finding quality at a reasonable price and being able to wear - to suit your own figure, style and fashion. Join me as we explore – What is Style?

  1. I love a good cardigan!
    In fact I have about 7 or eight in various colours.
    They are a great option for cooler weather, when you don’t want to wear a suit but still look pulled together and I often wear one as a shirt.
    Cheers,

  2. I believe cardigans are useful.
