South Boyfriend Cardigan
Advantages: Looks great, good range of colours and sizes, feels nice, washes well
Disadvantages: Quite thin and a bit see-through
I bought this cardigan when I wanted something long sleeved that I could throw on when I got a little chilly. I already have thicker cardigans but I wanted something thinner that wouldn't be too warm when it's still fairly warm outside. This seemed reasonably priced at ú15.
There are a range of colours available and they seem to update the colours with the seasons so there's always something to suit. I originally bought it in purple and have since also bought one in turquoise. The colours are very vivid and bright an they really look great, not like the drab, washed-out colours you so often find.
It comes in sizes 8 - 28 so most people would be able to find one that fit. I bought my usual size 10 and I found it fits well. It is a tight-fitting style, particularly on the arms, so if you wanted to wear more than one layer under it I'd suggest you opt for a larger size than usual. Because the arms are tight-fitting I find I can't really wear anything long-sleeved underneath it because it pushes the sleeves of them right up on my arms and looks ridiculous and feels uncomfortable. However, wearing it with short sleeves underneath it is very comfortable to wear and it looks great with just about any style.
The material feels lovely and soft but it is quite thin and so it doesn't look the best quality. It is a bit see-through so depending on what you wear underneath it you can see the colour through it a bit. The style is the usual v-neck style with buttons down the front and 2 pockets. It looks nice and it does go with most outfits as a throw-on cover-up.
It does wash well and keeps it's colour and shape which I was surprised about as it doesn't look the best quality. All in all I do think this is a lovely cardigan and well worth the money.
Summary: A nice cardigan for when you want something that's not too warm
