      Brilliant cardi :)

      Intro
      ------
      I am definetly a cardigan hoarder, and I would say that 60% of my wardrobe is made up of cardigans! I absolutely adore snuggly, oversized cardigans so when I saw this one around 6 months ago in the Topshop sale I grabbed it as quick as I could and it is a purchase I don't regret. This cardigan is now one of my favourites.

      Style
      --------
      This is basically a striped cardigan in the boyfriend cardigan style. It's quite a relaxed fitting cardigan and it has a V neck with 5 plastic buttons down the front. I like that it's a V neck cardigan as that way it looks a bit more feminine, in my opinion anyway. The cardigan isn't as long as my other boyfriend cardigans but it comes mid-thigh so it covers my bum up meaning that I can wear it with leggings. The jumper has elbow pads which are black.. I think it'd look much better/more in season with brown elbow pads but nevermind. The jumper is stripy with thick, horizonal stripes. It has stitching detail on the front of the jumper near the shoulders and on the back it also has some more stitching detail which I like, however my hair covers it most of the time so it seems a bit pointless. This cardigan is really versatile. I usually wear it open with a nice vest underneath, paired with either jeans, leggings/jeggings or shorts. It also looks quite nice with a well fitting skirt and it looks suprisingly smart when worn with the right things - it can be dressed up or down. I like the slightly oversized sleeves and it's a really comfy cardi.

      Sizing and Colour Options
      --------------------------------------
      As far as I know this cardigan is only available in one colour scheme which is cream and black. It's a gorgeously simple colour and makes the cardi nice and simple, and more versatile than a more colourful cardigan. Sizes available are 6, 8, 10, 12, 14 and 16. The fit is good, with just the right of baginess so I would reccomend getting your usual size.

      Price, Value for Money and Availability
      --------------------------------------------------------
      The RRP of this cardigan is £44, but it is currently on sale for £25. I paid around £38 in the Topshop sale around 6 months ago. I would definetly pay full price as it is good quality, versatile and it looks good, and £25 is a total bargain. The cardigan can be bought via the Topshop website or in store.

      Material and Washing It
      -----------------------------------
      This cardigan is so soft, with an almost fluffy texture. It is 89% wool and 11% nylon. Hand wash only. I have washed this jumper around 8 times (rough estimate!) Unfortunetly it has bobbled very slightly, but luckily it isn't too noticeable and it makes the cardi have a quite vintage look to it, in my opinion!

      Overall
      ----------
      A lovely cardigan which I highly reccomend.
