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.
