Winter, we’re bloody well done with you! Post Christmas, the cold goes from whimsical to damned insufferable and our wardrobes are just not cut out for the cold. We adore a cosy cardigan as much as any aunty but it’s definitely time for a little spring in our closets and there’s nothing quite so spring as pastels, even if you are donning them in knitwear. Not exactly ground breaking but damn it if they don’t put a smile on your face.
If full on leopard prints are too bold for you then ease yourself in with this gorgeous jacquard knit from H&M. At just £24.99, its the perfect seasonal update and gives you a chance to sample the animal print trend without breaking the bank. Pair with black skinny jeans for a quirky weekend look or a leather skirt for something sassier.
Forever banish any association you may have between cardigans, lilac and grandmothers with this Topshop cardi. This ruffle sleeved cardigan is a fabulous way to buy into the current ruffle trend without adding bulk to your torso and it’s pretty enough to tart up any outfit whilst keeping you cosy. Win Win.
Sometimes you are forced to get dressed up and venture out into the world when theres nothing you’d rather do than wear cosy clothes and watch Netflix. This beautiful lace front jumper from Ted Baker is perfect for those CBA moments as it’s super pretty and super comfortable. Pair with a red lip for feigned enthusiasm but whatever you do keep it away from curry.
An oversized cardigan is a must have for every wardrobe, because there are few other things in life that double up as a knit and a blanket. This colour blocked beauty is perfect, as it will elevate even the most basic of clothing into an ‘outfit’ whilst keeping you as cosy as it’s possible to be outside your bed. And it’s super modest incase you have any unexpected aunties turn up for tea.
This Topshop number is just plain fun. From the chunky knit to the rolled up cuffs and the blocked pastels, its the ultimate spring knit. Pair with a shirt and trouser for a casual office look and then rock it through the weekend with distressed jeans and messy hair.
