New Look Boyfriend Cardigan

Advantages: very cheap - many colours - suits all occasions
Disadvantages: very thin - wears and damages easily
In my work place unfortunately my desk is right under where the air conditioning blows out from the ceiling so as you can imagine it can get quite nippy... However at the same time I do not like to be too hot!
Enter the New Look Boyfriend cardigans! These suit my needs perfectly to cover up at work or if I am just slouching around the house! I have been buying these for around a year and a half now, and I am always noticing different colours that New Look bring into the range.
The cardigan itself, as previously mentioned is very thin in comparrison to similar ones in other shops. I like the fact that there is no buttons and it just naturally slouchs... and there is 2 large oversized pockets at the front which blend into the cardigan itself - almost like its folded inside out!
Ok, a wee bit about the cardigans... They come available in sizes 6 - 18... According to the label they are produced in Moldova (however I have no idea where this is...)... Usual precautions on the label is to keep away from fires, this cardigan is no different as it is made from 96% viscose and 4% elastane - both highly flamable. Wash instructions on the label state to wash at 40, to reshape when damp and to iron on reverse side... It also states it is not suitable for tumble dryers and I can tell you from experiance don't do it... I had a nasty habit of throwing everything into a tumble dryer when I lived at my mums and I do remember ruining one of these cardigans by doing this - shrank to nothing after one time!
I would say I have owned around 6 of them in different colours so far, and currenly have two in my wardrobe - which are black and beige. What happened to the other four cardigans you might ask? Unfortunately the thin-ness of them isn't always a great thing and the material is easily damaged - holes easily appear at the seams after a trip in the washing machine and the pockets easily rip and small holes turn into large holes over time.
Its a great affordable range from New Look and I can't see them every getting rid of these cardigans - some shops I have been to hold huge displays of them as they are so in demand. Many colours and can be used as smart or casual wear. They do have every colour of the rainbow which helps... at just £12.99 a cardigan you can afford to buy this in loads of different colours to match everything in your wardrobe. Also look out for offers as I have bagged 3 for around the £25 mark before!
Summary: great additions to the wardrobe!
