New Look Boyfriend Pocket Cardi
Advantages: Appearance, great colours, price, no ironing, keeps it's shape
Cardigans are a staple item in my wardrobe as I suffer from Reynaud's disease. Reynaud's is a condition that basically makes me colder than someone without the condition. Long story short I rely on them as a cover up at work and outside of work in all seasons. I wear them with dresses and I wear them with jeans and sometimes I even put one on with my PJ's on a lazy Sunday afternoon.
I am very fussy when it comes to cardigans, I want one that covers my bottom and it can be too bulky as I am petite and only 5ft 1. Anything bulky makes me look lumpy and as though I haven't tried. Anything that is flimsy I feel tends to lose its shape and look cheap on me so when I went into my local New Look store and saw this cardigan I had to buy it straight away.
I initially loved the clean lines of this cardigan. It has drop pockets in the front which are deep and this cardigan sits just under my bottom so gives me a feeling of security as no-one can see my lumpy bits or VPL especially when wearing leggings.
I purchased my cardigan in a size 8 for £12.99 in store. I like my cardigans to be slightly larger for comfort but because these where 'boyfriend' cardigans and slightly larger and slouchy I thought I would get my actual size. The sizing was perfect and I would advise everyone to get their actual size as going up a size may end up too large.
Because the cardigan has 98% viscose and 3% elastane it holds its shape all day. I find that even when I pull up the sleeves or my sons are pulling on the cardigan it doesn't end up loose.
I originally purchased the black and grey stripe boyfriend cardigan but have since purchased the charcoal and black versions as I love them so much. I think New Look change their colours and designs regularly as they do not sell the stripe one anymore but do have the charcoal and black cardigans.
Washing at 30 degree's is advised however I wash my cardigans at 40 degrees and tumble dry these when in a hurry and haven't come across any discolouration or shrinking. These haven't bobbled yet and I purchased my first around April 2011. These also do not need ironing if they are hung straight after drying.
If you don't already own at least one of these I advise you to head down to New Look straight away.
