The Hardy Cardi!

It’s officially British Summer time yet as I write this post it is snowing! So it is not quite time to pack away your winter  warmers just yet. A classic cardi is ideal for the transitional season and unpredictable weather and it a staple item in Mrs Obama’s wardrobe.

The trusty cardi is perfect for keeping you toasty whilst you are out and about yet easy to disrobe when required as JHud demonstrates!

Today, cardigans are as playful and diverse as they’ve ever been. Now a simple plain knit cardigan is not the only option on the table; wrap around ballet cardigans and button-up cardigan dresses are available alongside belted oversize numbers inspired by traditional men’s knitwear. Here’s a look at the most on-trend cardigans….

Crew neck

When you want a twee and simple cardigan, choose a plain coloured crew neck cardi with long sleeves. These typically thin cardigans look sweet on top of a floral tea dress or teamed with a nice blouse and midi skirt.

Batwing

If you want a statement cardigan, the batwing design is one way to go. Not design for maximum warmth, but more as a fashion conscious piece this cardigan features oversized short sleeve designs named ‘Batwings.

    I like the grey cardigan. Now I have an idea what to get my girlfriend on her birthday.

    I cant deny, I’m a cardi lover. Mrs O looks amazing! Seems to have lost a little weight and toned up a bit more, didn’t even think that was possible. Will try to find that copy of O.

    I have always loved a cardi (even when they weren’t in fashion). I think the crew neck one has a bit of a 1950’s look to it.
