“ Brand: BooHoo / Type: Cardigan / Clothing Class: Casual Wear „
I'm a big fan of both BooHoo and cardigans so when I needed some lightweight clothing for a recent holiday I knew exactly where to look to find the newest styles at the lowest prices. When scouring the many pages of BooHoo designs I came across the 'Amber contrast trim jersey cardigan' which was perfect for my holidays as it was a modern design which suits my style but was also lightweight and a complete bargain at only £8!
The cardigan itself is long sleeved and has a black trim around the outside giving it an edgy, chanel-esque feel to it. It is slightly longer than the average cardigan which fits in with the boyfriend style which is really in fashion at the moment. The overall fit, however, is pleasantly snug. I ordered my usual clothes size and I like the fit, it isn't super fitting but it doesn't look too oversized!
The colour of mine was black and white but it also comes in other colours which can be seen through their website. I chose white as it goes with most of my wardrobe which was a real plus. The £8 price tag is incredibly reasonable especially when compared to other high street stores such as Topshop and miss selfridge.
The material of the cardigan is the only down point for this item, I feel. It is almost too thin-like paper! This is probably a by-product of the price as the material was probably bought cheaply! Overall, I would say this is a cheap, fashionable cardigan that is versatile but I would avoid this cardigan for special occasions as it really does look cheap. Again, I wouldn't really recommend this to a friend unless they were looking for something cheap to wear around the house or to college etc. I award this item 3 stars.
When I was browsing Boohoo the other day I honestly wasnt planning on buying anything but when I found so many things on there that I really liked and realised I have a bit of extra money in my bank this month I decided to go mad and buy quite a few things. I was mainly shopping for casual clothes - my wardrobe is full of dresses for going out but I consider casual clothes to be broing to shop for but recently I was running very low so casual clothes were a must have from this shopping spree and with that in mind thats how I can accross this 'BooHoo Amber Contrast Trim Jersey Jacket'. Im not really a fan of cardigans, they just simply arent my style but this one was so cute and I knew it would be perfect for wearing in the daytime so I bought it & now Im very glad I did because this has become a wardrobe essential and I hope it will remain that way for a long time to come.
Price: £8 + P&P

Other Info: This cardigan is available in: Black & White, Coral & White, Navy & White, Fuschia & White, Red & White + White & Black (The second colour is the contrasting trim shade and the first the colour of the main part of the cardigan. This cardigan is availble in either S/M or M/L - this jacket is machine-washable.
*I personally own this jacket in Black & White in size S/M - Id say if you are size 12 or under a S/M should fit you fine and if you are over a M/L might be better.*
So in reality this jacket design-wise looks just like it does in the image so even though your buying online what you see is what you get but mine is obviously a different colour. So the jacket I own in mainly black all over with contrasting white along the middle (Im not sure what the actual name for that part of the jacket is!) and also along the pockets. So as you can tell this is actually a pretty simple design which is something I dont normally go for but as I was looking for something to match everything this fit my needs perfectly. The design is plain but it still looks very well made and high quality so it doesnt look cheap in the slightest.
For me this jacket fits perfectly - it is long enough and tight enough on the arms to appear fitted but not too tight or uncomfortable in any way, its slightly baggier towards the bottom which means it should just cover your bum - which as I wear leggings pretty much everyday is a good thing and it fits perfectly on my shoulders as well without making me feel hunched over. The pockets on either side are quite large and very deep - but they dont appear to be that way when your wearing it so it doesnt look odd. I like that the pockets are quite deep because it means if you want to go out without a bag all your daily essentials can easily be carried around in this jacket without the pockets looking bulgy or your stuff falling out.
This jacket is perfect for the exact reasons that I bought it. I havent found anything so far that this doesnt match with and look good with its perfect for a casual outfit but I guess it could also be worn on a night out if its a bit chilly and you dont want to carry around a large winter coat. I wear this a lot and its always very comfy and I can easily wear it for long periods of time without it irritating my skin - as the material is very soft against my skin and it making me uncomfortable. Ive been wearing this lately underneath a coat because in this weather there is no way I could wear this alone and be as warm as Id like but I just know this will be perfect for the summer nights. This is light enough to wear on a summer might when its gone slightly colder but you will sweat in a coat or proper jacket - this cardigan is perfect for that exact type of weather and I cant wait for the summer with this jacket.
I adore it and I highly recommend it to others as well - Im thinking of buying it in a few more shades when I next have some leftover cash and I know I will be wearing this a lot for quite some time. It matches with everything, is comfy to wear and is great for casual yet looks like youve still made an effort - in short its fabulous!
Thanks For Reading.
