Style Theory: Cosy and chic, a comfy, soft oversized cardigan to wrap around you as the evenings become colder or to make coming back from a hot summer holiday just a bit easier.
Oversize knitwear is hot news for AW14 and cardigans are perfect for the end of the summer and into the Autumn. They look as good over denim shorts as skinny jeans, and work over a chic tailored dress. Cardigans will certainly play a big role in your 2014/15 wardrobe.
Here are a few ideas of how to style:
|Love the gold belt wrapped round this cardigan|
|Stunning muted colours blended together|
|A grey cardigan look great over a white cotton blouse and skinny jeans.|
|Wear your grey cardigan with white jeans for a chic look...|
|A cardigan looks fab thrown over a denim dress.|
Now for the best on the high street to wrap yourself in the cold evenings:
|Topshop Festival Cardigan £45|
This is a perfect transitional cardigan, the colours are gorgeous and it is so soft. It would look fab with a grey marl T-Shirt, distressed denim shorts and sandals.
|Topshop Stretchy Slouchy Cardigan £48|
Love the flattering length of this, again it would look fab over shorts and in the winter over ankle length skinny black jeans and pointed flat shoes.
|Zara Hooded Cardigan £35.99|
The hooded detail on this cardigan and pockets make it super cosy. Wear now over white skinny jeans and a grey tee.
|Jigsaw rice Stitch Cardigan £119|
Blue will be a major player this Autumn/Winter, layer this beautiful dark blue cardigan under a pale blue coat with white jeans for a beautiful, tonal look.
|Warehouse Boucle Coatigan at John Lewis £65|
Pink was featured again on the AW14 catwalk, this cardigan will work with summer pale greys and whites as well as over a black sweater and skinny jeans in the winter.
|Asos Aran Cardigan in Longer Length £32|
A classic Aran cardigan in a longer length, it looks fab over a summer ditsy print floral dress. Wear with distressed boyfriend jeans in the winter.
|Asos Longline Cardigan in Brushed Check £45|
Check again reigns supreme in AW14, love the large check on this cardigan in muted colours.
|Hush Cardigown £95|
A super cosy, thick cardigan that you can style with almost anything from tailored black dresses to jeans.
After a few years of knitwear being all about jumpers, this year cardigans are really making a comeback and I will most definitely be investing in a few...will you?
